The third annual Change Begins Within benefit gala was a great success, raising funds and awareness for the philanthropic programmes the David Lynch Foundation is initiating.

The gala was held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, a beautiful facility which is one square block entirely dedicated to the arts. Bob Roth, one of the organizers of the event, spoke recently about the rich programme of the evening's events.

The structure was similar to last year's gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, beginning with a reception where everyone could chat informally.

Next came the main part of the evening, a presentation of the Transcendental Meditation Programme and its application and benefits for health, creativity, and intelligence, Mr Roth explained.

The presentation also covered 'the work that the David Lynch Foundation is doing in conjunction with Maharishi Foundation for education and for military veterans.'

After the presentations and speeches from celebrities, experts, and scientists, everyone enjoyed a gourmet dinner under the stars in the museum's courtyard, entertained by up-and-coming young musicians.

Inspired by the event, conversations around the dinner tables were lively and stimulating, Mr Roth said. Dinner started at 6:30 p.m., but by midnight half of the attendees were still sitting around their tables talking, despite the chilly evening.

Dr Roth felt the evening was a great success, a culmination of decades of dedicated work by teachers of Transcendental Meditation across the country.
