Hollywood movie director David Lynch, who has been practicing Transcendental Meditation for almost 40 years himself, was so impressed after a visit to Maharishi School, Fairfield, Iowa, USA that he created a foundation, the David Lynch Foundation, to help bring Transcendental Meditation to other schools.

Recently this has been expanded to programs for prisoners and unemployed people. Other celebrities (that also practice TM themselves) that have been publicly supporting this foundation are amongst others Oprah Winfrey, Clint Eastwood, George Lucas, Martin Scorcese, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Moby, Sheryl Crow, Eddie Vedder, Jerry Seinfeld, Russell Brand and Katy Perry.

Thanks to the David Lynch Foundation, students in more than 700 public and private schools around the world have been able to learn the Transcendental Meditation technique. And for the US alone, there are more than 1000 schools on the waiting list and they want to implement the program as soon as possible.

The goal is to start such an education project in Belgium as well as soon as possible. The David Lynch Foundation in Belgium is prepared to cover part of the costs of the instruction in Transcendental Meditation and the TM Sidhi program.
