On 18 January 2012 The Salt Lake Tribune reported: Renowned singer-songwriter Donovan has practiced Transcendental Meditation ''ever since his now-legendary 1968 trip that he and the Beatles took'' to study with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Rishikesh, India, writes David Burger. During the Sundance Film Festival this January in Utah--the largest independent film festival in the United States--Donovan will headline the annual ''BMI Snowball'' event. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of culture.

The Salt Lake Tribune article also mentions that ''besides practicing meditation daily, Donovan said he is 'the musical wing' of filmmaker David Lynch's foundation that has a goal of teaching one million at-risk students to meditate.'' Donovan performed at a 2009 benefit concert for the David Lynch Foundation at Radio City Music Hall in New York, in addition to Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and other top artists.

Donovan, who will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this spring, ''has a long history with musical endeavors that are tied to film, TV and video. A close friend of the Beatles, he contributed lyrics and vocals to 'Yellow Submarine'.''

''There would be no Sundance Film Festival without meditation,'' the article quoted Donovan as saying. ''Meditation can touch a place inside you.''
