The David Lynch Foundation (DLF), a global charitable organization that addresses the epidemic of trauma and toxic stress amongst at-risk populations, hosted its inaugural Women of Vision Humanitarian and Courage Awards Luncheon in New York City. The event celebrated the Foundation’s recent success providing scholarships for hundreds of women and children to learn to meditate through the Family Justice Centers in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens as well as Sanctuaries for Families and other women’s shelters in the New York area. The luncheon raised funds to provide the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation technique,at no cost, to 1,000 women and children in the New York City area who are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Since 2005, the David Lynch Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has helped to bring the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation technique to more than 500,000 children and adults around the world. They focus their efforts on under served inner-city students; veterans with PTSD and their families; and women and children who are survivors of violence and abuse.
