On Tuesday, October 8, at the Paley Center for Media in New York City, a standing-room-only crowd of 350 professionals gathered to hear ten women leaders in business, media, education and social services discuss the impact of their Transcendental Meditation practice for reducing stress and stress-related disorders while improving health, creativity, and performance.
''Funds raised from the conference are being used to provide the TM technique to hundreds of women and girls served by the Family Justice Centers in New York City,'' said Britten Chroman, Director of the David Lynch Foundation's Women's Initiative.
