On 16 May 2018 amNY reported: A music festival fan would have plenty to enjoy at the Festival of Disruption, the filmmaker David Lynch-curated weekend [May 19-20] that makes its debut in New York after two successful runs in Los Angeles. But the star of the two days — and a trait that links many of the performers together — is Transcendental Meditation, the heart of the event and the David Lynch Foundation, for which the festival is raising funds. Proceeds go to the organization, with the goal of bringing the meditation technique to schools, survivors of domestic abuse, veteransĀ and others in need of stress relief. 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 fields of culture and the arts.

[Asked about the connection between music and meditation] the David Lynch Foundation's executive director Bob Roth said, ''One of the things that is different between Transcendental Meditation and other forms of meditation is that it actually [w]akes up the two creative networks in the brain . . . . What artists find . . . is that it helps get rid of a buildup of stress, and by waking up the creative network in the brain, it allows the creativity to flow. It's ideal for a creative and long life as an artist.
