Last year, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr launched the David Lynch Foundation's 'Change Begins Within' global outreach to teach one million at-risk adolescents and teens stress-reducing meditation, at an historic concert at Radio City Music Hall.

Since then, nearly 150,000 inner-city students have begun utilizing these techniques to eliminate traumatic stress that undermines academic achievement and short-circuits lives. These students have dramatically better test scores, grades, and graduation rates while drop out rates, suspensions, and expulsions have greatly decreased. The program has the full-hearted support of superintendents, principals, faculty, students, and parents.

More groups of people from all walks of life have come to embrace the program, including veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and their families; homeless adults; children from the streets of Harlem and East LA; American Indians subsisting on impoverished reservations; and incarcerated men and women locked away in maximum security penitentiaries.

And the demand has never been greater in New York City; in particular among local schools, veterans groups, and homeless shelter re-entry programs.

David Lynch extends an invitation to the second 'Change Begins Within' benefit on Monday December 13, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Russell Brand, Clint Eastwood, Dr Mehmet Oz, Katy Perry, Dr Lynch, and other very special guests will be part of a very different and exciting evening, as follows:

∙ 6:30 p.m. — Great Hall


∙ 7:30 p.m. — The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium
Find out directly from Dr. Oz how you can overcome the build-up of stress (holiday and otherwise) in your own life and hear from Russell, Clint, and Katy how combat-frayed veterans, inner-city students and New York's homeless are overcoming the traumatic stresses of their lives.

∙ 8:30 p.m. — The Temple of Dendur in the Sackler Wing
in all its mystic beauty will be the setting for dinner with amazing guest entertainment.

David Lynch extends his invitation to be part of ''this extraordinary event, and discover firsthand why change begins within. Let it begin with you.''

Please visit the David Lynch Foundation for further information about the event.
