On 17 July 2017 The Wall Street Journal reported: Bob Roth, chief executive of the David Lynch Foundation, works with a wide-ranging clientele that includes celebrities such as Katy Perry and Jerry Seinfeld, hedge-fund managers, inner-city students, prisoners and veterans. He has the same goal for everyone: to teach them the virtues of Transcendental Meditation. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of business.

Proponents say that the practice reduces stress and raises self-awareness. Bridgewater founder and co-chairman Ray Dalio, a student of Mr. Roth's for more than a decade and a donor to the foundation, is a believer. The practice has been ''integral to whatever success I've had in life,'' he says. ''It makes one feel like . . . a ninja in a movie, like you're doing everything calmly and in slow motion.''

In early June, Mr. Roth opened the nonprofit's first office in Washington, D.C. . . . His organization has also been participating in studies in prisons recently. In a study published last year in the Permanente Journal, 181 male inmates at the Oregon State Correctional Institute and the Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem either took a Transcendental Meditation program through the foundation or did nothing outside their usual routine. The researchers found greater reductions in anxiety, depression and trauma symptoms in the group that had taken meditation.
