Opening the door to self-esteem at New Village Charter High School

The David Lynch Foundation brings stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation to at-risk, high-stress populations such as veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress, kids in inner-city schools, the homeless, and Native Americans. Transcendental Meditation is the most thoroughly researched and widely practiced meditation technique.

The students of New Village Charter High School come from extremely troubled situations. Many have parents who are in prison or have been deported, have given birth before high school, or have been sexually and physically abused. As one teacher says, “They have these unbelievably difficult stories… you couldn’t even fit them into a lifetime for most people and these girls have already experienced them by 15.” The school implemented the Quiet Time Program to give them a tool to combat their traumatic stress.

Transcendental Meditation around the world

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.
