Since 2005 the David Lynch Foundation has shared Transcendental Meditation with our most stressed populations.
Veterans: “A year ago this month I was suicidal. I was so low that I just wanted to not be here….Transcendental Meditation saved my life.”
At-Risk Youth: “I used to say I’m gonna get my grades up I’m gonna do better. But still it was just what I said, it never happened. Until I started meditating.”
African Refugees: “After my husband died my in-laws turned against me. They tortured me, almost killed me….those days I used to cry too much but now even the tears, they are holding. I’m great.”
Prisoners: “If you just take the time to meditate, free your mind, everything will come together.”
Homeless: “I was just so frustrated and full of misguided anger I didn’t know where to direct it to….people tell me you’re so calm….it’s surprising even to me.”
20 minutes twice a day changed them. Meditation changed them.
