A week-long meditation conference in Croatia for young professionals, students, and recent graduates who practise Transcendental Meditation seems to have created lasting results. The group, who came from all over Europe as well as Egypt and Australia, enjoyed the conference and the opportunity to connect with one another. By the end, many expressed a desire to help with the David Lynch Foundation's charitable activities worldwide, whether in schools, prisons, with the homeless, or with veterans.

Now they are keeping in touch to coordinate their efforts to help the Foundation provide Transcendental Meditation to as many people as possible around the world.

A course organizer explained the connection between the David Lynch Foundation and Transcendental Meditation. 'The David Lynch Foundation is founded to promote Consciousness-Based Education and create world peace. The technology for doing that is Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques and programmes. So the two are very closely related.'

The European attendees represented Croatia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Albania, Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Greece. Because the whole group is so spread out geographically, they are forming a network to stay in touch and help facilitate their involvement in the David Lynch Foundation and Transcendental Meditation.

They are 'a really dynamically growing youth group in Europe wanting to bring enlightenment to the continent,' course organizers said. 'They have their own Facebook® page and an email group through which they communicate.'

They want to have a yearly programme of meditation courses and are planning a number of different events and ways to coordinate activities so people who met on the course can work together.

'In the United Kingdom for example,' said the course organizer, 'some very big events are being planned . . . and these young people will be helping with organizing these events and organizing future courses.'

This structured approach will help greatly in 'progressing the work of the Maharishi Foundation and the David Lynch Foundation in all the countries of Europe', he added.
