The newest college campus lecture tour by film director David Lynch is being widely anticipated by the press throughout the western United States, including the Los Angeles Daily News, the Arizona Central, the Daily Californian, the Daily Vanguard, LA City Beat, and The Daily, a student paper at the University of Washington. Though usually reclusive, Lynch is taking time out from editing his newest movie to speak to thousands of students about the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme(TM) in expanding consciousness and creativity, and promoting whole brain functioning.

Lynch described the experience of meditating to Daily Vanguard reporter Brian Smith. 'It's an attempt to reach a pure ocean of consciousness. And as one's consciousness begins to grow and unfold, it becomes a beautiful thing. The enjoyment of working increases, awareness increases... It's amazing. I'm able to appreciate things more. I'm able to experience bliss, happiness, enjoyment, fulfilment. And all on a deep, resounding level.'

Lynch is so serious about the importance of giving students the opportunity to expand their level of consciousness through the practice of TM that he started the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education as a means to fund meditation programmes in schools. He told Smith that his foundation is now working with several big name universities across the country—Michigan, NYU, Brown, Harvard, American, Emerson—to establish centres where students can learn TM and where research can be conducted on the results of their practice.

Lynch will be joined onstage by John Hagelin, physicist and David Lynch Foundation president, and neuroscientist Fred Travis, associate professor and director of the Center for the Brain, Consciousness and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management in Iowa, who will discuss the scientific research on TM, particularly on how it affects the brain. The lectures will feature a live EEG demonstration of the effects of the Transcendental Meditation Technique on the brain.
