Teach one million students around the world to meditate to transform schools from breeding grounds of stress and violence into centers of creativity and peace. The David Lynch Foundation has already provided nearly $5 million to support in-school Transcendental Meditation programs for thousands of students in public and private schools in the United States and around the world to learn to meditate.
Now, before you scoff at the idea, I meditate (not TM), and I credit my daily practice for many positive changes in my life. There have been numerous studies about the positive affects of meditation on both mind, body and spirit. It has been used, very successfully, with prison inmates, and children, and if people like Lynch are willing to donate millions to help meditation become more accessible to children, then that's wonderful. It certainly can't do any harm, and if it helps alleviate, somewhat, the horrors of childhood (and we've all been there, at least I have), then why not?
Congratulations, David, for giving back to the community!
