5 November 2015

To celebrate another successful year and look forward to new initiatives, the David Lynch Foundation organized an amazing benefit concert featuring performances by Katy Perry, Sting, Jerry Seinfeld, Jim James, Angelique Kidjo and Sharon Isbin.

The proceeds from the event staged at the famous Carnegie Hall in New York and hosted by George Stephanopoulos and David Lynch will go towards DLF's Meditate New York initiative to teach the Transcendental Meditation technique for free to 10,000 at-risk New Yorkers, including veterans with PTSD, urban youth, and survivors of domestic abuse.

Below are some of the highlights in pictures and quotes tweeted during the event by the David Lynch Foundation.

Katy Perry:

''I started TMing about five years ago. It's changed my life, it's changed how I think about things.

I meditate before I write a song, before I perform. I feel my brain open up and I feel my most sharp.

It's my favorite gift to give. It's one of those gifts that never goes away.''

Jerry Seinfield:

''I'm thrilled to be here tonight and to promote TM as a life tool, for helping things make sense.''

Angelique Kidjo:

''When I meditate, my brain lights up. So tonight I'm here to give back what meditation has given me,'' said the Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter and activist from Benin.
