AOL Build Learns about DLF and Why Ellen DeGeneres and Katy Perry Meditate
The David Lynch Foundation (DLF), a global charitable organization that addresses the epidemic of trauma and toxic stress among at-risk populations, hosted “Change Begins Within: Healing the Hidden Wounds of War”, a benefit dinner and conversation. The proceeds will benefit David Lynch Foundation programs, including the Center for Excellence in Military Health, a division of the David Lynch Foundation helping veterans and those in the armed services dealing with post-traumatic stress (PTS). DLF CEO Bob Roth joins BUILD to speak on the organization.
… “Philadelphia was very very very good to me,” says Lynch.
Now he wants to return the favor to Philadelphia by giving the gift of “Transcendental Meditation.”
“Transcendental Meditation is not a religion. It’s not a cult. It’s a mental technique,” said Lynch, who runs a foundation in his name to teach TM.
He says it allows adults and kids to experience the deepest level of life.
“You’re given a mantra. The mantra you’re given in transcendental meditation is just like a law of nature. Designed for a specific purpose and that purpose is to turn the awareness from out out out 180 degrees to within within within. It’s easy and effortless it does not involve trying,” said Lynch.
And he says he wants to take that approach to Philly’s schools to stop violence, including some of the smallest behavior problems.
“Pretty books, painting the school room isn’t going to do a damn thing for this. You gotta get these kids diving in, transcending everyday,” he says. …”
