Award-winning filmmaker David Lynch recently addressed a group of young meditators, all of whom practise Transcendental Meditation, to answer their questions and inspire them to live by their ideals.

The group, comprised of students and young professionals from 11 countries in Europe, Oceania, and Africa, gathered on the island of Hvar in Croatia for an extended meditation course.

During the course, in addition to long meditations, the group heard from experts on various topics, including yoga, Maharishi Ayurveda health care, and the effectiveness of meditation. One such expert, who spoke to the group via Skype, was David Lynch.

Mr Lynch connected and spoke for over an hour with the course participants. He gave an account of his own experience with Transcendental Meditation and spoke about the various projects the David Lynch Foundation is involved in around the world, including work in schools, prisons, with veterans, and with homeless people.

The participants were able to introduce themselves and speak individually with the famous director. Many mentioned their interests and wondered how they could apply those to help the David Lynch Foundation.

A young man from Bosnia-Herzegovina, a radio and TV presenter, spoke to David Lynch.

Said an organizer of the meditation course, 'He is preparing a programme for radio and TV there in Bosnia, and this is going to be a precursor to a broadcasting of David Lynch's film, ''Meditation, Creativity, Peace'', about his tours of Europe and the Middle East in 2007-2009.'

During the meditation course, the young man was recording for his upcoming programme and preparing for his broadcast back home in Bosnia.

By the end of the course, several of the participants felt inspired to join the David Lynch Foundation in its initiatives to bring Transcendental Meditation to high-risk groups of people in great need around the world.
