In an astounding step to end school violence, the David Lynch Foundation ( plans to teach one million students around the world the Transcendental Meditation technique. The anti-violence plan, announced May 1st, will be explored in detail during this Memorial Day weekend's second annual David Lynch event, 'Exploring the Frontiers of Brain, Consciousness, and Creativity.'

'There is no reason to wait. There is no reason to roll this out over years or decades. We want the million students to learn to meditate now,' said the iconic and award-winning filmmaker David Lynch.

According to Mr. Lynch, there are 50 years of research and experience with the Transcendental Meditation technique and students and, based on that success, and the foundation's success over the past year of providing funds for 6,000 students to meditate, the foundation is launching this new campaign to fund the teaching of one million students around the world to create global peace.

This second annual David Lynch Weekend will include a live-by-satellite talk by University Founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, and will be hosted in person by Mr. Lynch, faculty member and renowned quantum physicist Dr. John Hagelin, and celebrated singer/songwriter Donovan Leitch.

The event is now sold out. Members of the community can register for $20 and take advantage of overflow seating, which will entail a live video feed on a large screen at a campus location with comfortable seating. David Lynch, John Hagelin, and Donovan will periodically visit the overflow location during the weekend to speak and take questions. Overflow registration includes the Friday night dessert reception for all guests, as well as campus tours and selected events.

Additionally, a free event for the weekend attendees and all members of the Fairfield community is being organized for Sunday evening, May 27, in the Maharishi Patanjali Golden Dome. The event will include a live Q&A with David Lynch and John Hagelin, and concert with Donovan.

Students from around the nation are expected at the weekend. They will enjoy presentations from the celebrity hosts, along with live performances and workshops with Donovan and friends, brainwave demonstrations using the latest technology to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Transcendental Meditation technique on brain functioning, a workshop on sustainable living with faculty member Lonnie Gamble, opportunities to meet University students and faculty in question-and-answer sessions, campus tours, an international food court, and other social events.
