On 21 May 2018, Vanity Fair reported: Twin Peaks acolytes, Transcendental Meditation enthusiasts, and longtime Lynch collaborators alike convened in Brooklyn this weekend [May 19-20] for the third annual Festival of Disruption. [H]eld for the first time in New York at Brooklyn Steel, [it] was a curated trip to Lynchian Oz, where panels, film screenings, musical guests, and lectures on Transcendental Meditation all led to the man himself. . . . As in years past, proceeds went directly to the David Lynch Foundation, which teaches Transcendental Meditation to inner-city youths, veterans, and survivors of domestic abuse. (To date, the foundation has reached more than 500,000 people since founding in 2005.) 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.
. . . . Transcendental Meditation and its ability to help one locate their inner calm amidst the chaotic national mood loomed large throughout the weekend . . . .
As Bob Roth, C.E.O. of the David Lynch Foundation, explained in his opening remarks Saturday, 'Look what's going on in the world today. Constant upheaval. Constant disruptions. And we often don't have any control over what's going on outside. It can be a nightmare. Inside, we do things to access our own reservoir of creativity and resilience, and we actually can turn it into kind of a . . . festival of disruption.'
. . . . As Roth and Lynch, his longtime friend and fellow practitioner, see it, TM holds the power to ''disrupt narrowness of thinking, prejudice, and bias.''
