On 9 September 2005 Yale University reported:
Filmmaker David Lynch has been invited to speak at Yale University about the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the benefits of the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation Programme to students.
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 education.
The David Lynch Foundation recently partnered with other foundations in a $1.2 million research grant to study the effects of Transcendental Meditation on brain functioning, academic performance, learning disorders, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse among students in nine schools and colleges.
'Students experience fear, anxiety, depression—their life is not what it should be,' Lynch says. 'I know from my own 30 years of experience that meditation can work. I am coming to Yale to tell students that my foundation is available to help them develop their consciousness, creativity, and brain through meditation.'
Lynch will be joined at the talk by John Hagelin, professor of physics and director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy at Maharishi University of Management, who was recently featured in the hit documentary 'What the Bleep Do We Know?' and by neuroscientist Fred Travis, director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
