David Lynch Foundation
Saturday, November 9, 2013, 6:00 - 9:30 pm
EarthWE and DLF LAB present an evening with the David Lynch Foundation
David Lynch's brief introduction to Transcendental Meditation:
The David Lynch Foundation was established in 2005 to fund the implementation of scientifically proven stress-reducing modalities including Transcendental Meditation, for at-risk populations such as underserved inner-city students; veterans with PTSD and their families; American Indians suffering from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and high suicide rates; homeless men participating in reentry programs striving to overcome addictions; and incarcerated juveniles and adults.
The David Lynch Foundation also funds university and medical school research to assess the effects of the program on academic performance, ADHD and other learning disorders, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, cardiovascular disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, and diabetes.
“Our Foundation was established to ensure that any child in America who wants to learn and practice the Transcendental Meditation program can do so. The TM program is the most thoroughly researched and widely practiced program in the world for developing the full creative potential of the brain and mind, improving health, reducing stress, and improving academic outcomes. We provide scholarships for students to learn the technique and to receive the complete follow-up program of instruction throughout their student years to ensure they receive the maximum benefits. We also provide scholarships for students who want to attend the growing number of highly successful schools, colleges, and universities founded on this Consciousness-Based approach to education.
I have had the pleasure of meeting many students who are “diving within” and experiencing Consciousness-Based education. These students are all unique individuals, very much themselves. They are amazing, self-sufficient, wide-awake, energetic, blissful, creative, powerfully intelligent and peaceful human beings. Meeting these students, for me, was the proof that Consciousness-Based education is a profoundly good thing for our schools and for our world.”

"As a yoga teacher and practitioner of transcendental meditation as well, Alisha Zalkin approaches everything in life, particularly her live performances, from an honest and authentic place with a whole lot of heart."
"Alisha Zalkin's EP stands as a testimony to her ethnically diverse and intriguing past. Zalkin takes the influence of her opera-singing Jewish grandmother and of her Mexican heritage to create a sound that indeed, marches to a "different beat." The San Diego natives soulful and almost gospel like songs can be experienced in tracks such as Beautiful You and Say It To My Face-songs that contain uplifting and inspiring messages."
