Transforming Lives: The David Lynch Foundation provides funds for students to learn to meditate through Transcendental Meditation teaching centers, hospital-sponsored wellness programs, boys and girls clubs, before- and after-school programs and in schools when invited by the administration. Instruction is voluntary and is provided to a child with the permission of a parent and at no cost to the family, organization or school. In the past year, the Foundation has provided millions of dollars for thousands of students, teachers, and parents to learn to meditate. The David Lynch Foundation also provides funds for independent research institutions to assess the effects of the program on creativity, intelligence, brain functioning, academic performance, ADHD and other learning disorders, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse.
