As soon as the website went live for the weekend with filmmaker David Lynch, people began registering—with 217 having signed up by February 14.
About 75 percent of the participants so far are from the Midwest, but many are also coming from around the U.S., as well as from other countries.
The weekend is scheduled for March 24-26, and organizers have set a goal of at least 300 registrants. The event will be free for Maharishi University of Management students.
For more information or to register, see http://lynchweekend.org.
Mr. Lynch will speak on filmmaking, consciousness, and the creative process. He is an award-winning director, writer, and producer. His work includes Eraserhead, Elephant Man, Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, Straight Story, and Mulholland Drive.
In recent years he has been actively promoting Maharishi's programs for creating peace and has founded the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace. Also highlighting the weekend will be Maharishi University of Management physics professor John Hagelin, speaking on quantum physics and spirituality. He is a world-renowned quantum physicist who was featured in the award-winning film What the bleep do we know?!
Dr. Hagelin received his Ph.D. at Harvard University, and conducted pioneering research at CERN (European Center for Particle Physics) and SLAC (Stanford Linear Accelerator Center).
Other featured speakers will include Carmen N'Namdi and George Rutherford on their experience in schools where students practice the Transcendental Meditation technique, Dr. Keith Wallace on Samadhi—the fourth major state of consciousness, and Dr. Fred Travis on transcending and the brain.
The cost for those who register before March 3 will be $45 for students, $75 for educators and government, and $115 for the general public. Fairfield residents will be eligible to receive the $75 rate.
After March 3 the prices will be $65, $95, and $145.
