On 30 May 2010 The Connexion - France's English-language newspaper reported:
Award-winning filmmaker David Lynch visits France regularly, both to work on his artistic endeavours and to offer the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme to students through his David Lynch Foundation.
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 for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace has helped . . . well over 100,000 students' to learn to meditate, Mr Lynch explains in the article.
'It's in several schools in the US, both private and public. Some of these were the worst schools in their state and in one year the schools had been completely changed,' he continues.
The Foundation supports students around the world. 'It's not just France, it's in so many countries now,' Mr Lynch tells The Connexion. 'There's a project in the West Bank in Palestine, in Africa, many countries in Europe, Iceland, Canada.'
Mr Lynch also explains in the article that Transcendental Meditation is 'not a religion or against any religion. It's a technique, an ancient form of meditation for the human being that opens the door to the treasury within; unbounded, infinite eternal consciousness. Life improves almost overnight when people experience 'the big self'—the unified field within.'
Mr Lynch tells The Connexion that through the practice of Transcendental Meditation, 'Grades go up, relationships improve, health improves. Everything gets better.'*
Transcendental Meditation helps relieve stress, Mr Lynch states. 'The world is full of stress and this is a stress buster beyond the beyond. All these stress related illnesses that people suffer, so much of the behaviour is dictated by stress—you practise this thing and it frees you from stress.'
When asked about the cost of the course to learn Transcendental Meditation, Mr Lynch says, 'Once [people] start seeing this transformation in other people they realise that this is nothing to spend for this life transforming thing. . . . It's so well worth the money there's nothing to talk about.' He also points out that the course fees help support the organizations and teachers that offer the Transcendental Meditation Programme.
The Connexion also describes the warm relationship Mr Lynch has with France. 'France has been kind to David Lynch,' the article reports; 'he's an officier of the Légion d'honneur (a rare thing for a foreigner); French production companies have supported his last three films and he has twice won best foreign director from the French-based César cinema awards. The feeling is mutual he tells Connexion.'
'This is one of my favourite places in the world,' Mr Lynch states in the article. '[The French] champion the arts more than any other country in the world.'
