On 24 April 2008 The Daily Iowan reported: The third annual David Lynch Weekend is being hosted at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA starting Friday. The purpose of the weekend event, which features lectures, seminars, and a concert, is to spread awareness and information about the university and 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 education.

The university expects fifteen hundred for the three-day event.

The Daily Iowan reported, 'Tickets for the entire weekend are sold out, but there are tickets available for purchase online at a cost of $10 for Saturday's events only, which include a Q&A with filmmaker Lynch, a lecture on quantum physics and consciousness by physicist John Hagelin, and a concert honoring Donovan, featuring special guest Moby, with Laura Dawn and Chrysta Bell, among other informational seminars on sustainable living and consciousness-based education.'

Reporters from MTV and Rolling Stone are expected to cover the event.

Bob Roth, Vice President of the David Lynch Foundation, explained to the Daily Iowan that to learn Transcendental Meditation requires no change in lifestyle. He stated that the practice of the technique has many practical results for students, including:

- increased creativity
- improved test scores, GPA, and memory
- decreased anxiety, depression, insomnia, and high blood pressure.

'A decrease in anything related to stress,' he was quoted as saying. 'It's about accessing more of your ''Self'',' Roth said. 'Capital S.'

Transcendental Meditation is also popular with creative artists, such as Donovan and David Lynch.

Roth explained that the practice of Transcendental Meditation 'deepens your appreciation for the human condition to understand and express it more directly'.

'All of the artists and lecturers are performing during the weekend for free,' the article stated.
