In Milan for the recent Stress-Free Schools conference (Scuola Senza Stress), world renowned filmmaker David Lynch, founder of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace, was invited to appear on a popular local television channel. Every week a top-level person from the field of culture, politics, science, and other areas, is invited to be a guest on this nationally broadcast programme.
In his first round of questions the host of the programme, a well known film director in Italy, asked Mr Lynch about his cinema productions and experiences.
During the second part of the interview Mr Lynch had the opportunity to speak on several of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes to improve the quality of life both for individuals and the society—Transcendental Meditation, Consciousness-Based Education, and Stress-Free Schools.
He described in detail the process of transcending during Transcendental Meditation and how it expands the conscious mind. Using a large overhead screen projector, he drew for the audience the 'bubble diagram', a graphic designed by Maharishi and widely used to introduce Transcendental Meditation to the public.
Mr Lynch explained to the Italian viewership how the mind settles down during the practice of Transcendental Meditation, experiencing finer levels of the thinking process and eventually going beyond (transcending) thought to experience its own silent source, the unbounded field of pure consciousness (transcendental consciousness). He also described how, from that source in pure consciousness, impulses develop into conscious thoughts.
Mr Lynch is well respected in Italy and considered a master film maker. With a few million people regularly watching the show, he took the opportunity to announce the upcoming conference on Stress-Free Schools for Italy.
