On September 25, award-winning film director David Lynch and Institute of Science, Technology, and Public Policy director Dr. John Hagelin kicked off a 20-city college campus tour to speak on 'Consciousness, Creativity, and the Brain.' Advanced word of the tour has already generated huge ticket sales and intense media interest.

The tour will showcase the power of the Transcendental Meditation program in boosting brain performance, intelligence, creativity and academic success—as well as promoting peace and harmony throughout society. Thousands of college students have already signed up for these events.

The forum will include an onsite demonstration of brainwave coherence produced through the practice of the Transcendental Meditation program. The brainwaves of meditating volunteers will be projected in real time onto giant monitors and will be analysed by participating scientists.

During the tour, Mr. Lynch and Dr. Hagelin will also be meeting with major foundations and top philanthropists to promote the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace, which will fund implementation of these programmes (see below).

We encourage all supporters of the US Peace Government to invite their friends and colleagues on the East Coast to attend these historic events, which we expect to revitalize the teaching of the Transcendental Meditation programme on college campuses nationwide.

The September-October East Coast campus tour includes the following cities. (A similar tour is scheduled for the West Coast in November.)

Sept. 25 Ann Arbor, MI

Sept. 27 Washington, DC

Sept. 28 Philadelphia, PA

Sept. 29 New York, NY

Sept. 30 New Haven, CT

Oct. 1 Boston, MA

Oct. 2 Providence, RI

The David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace

Film director and Maharishi University of Management trustee David Lynch has recently established a new foundation, the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace, dedicated to bringing the benefits of the stress-reducing, health-promoting Transcendental Meditation programme to students, teachers and parents (

Mr. Lynch, who is currently directing a new film, Inland Empire, says the Transcendental Meditation technique helps students of all ages, nationalities, and religions learn better, handle stress better, and 'know themselves' better.

'The Transcendental Meditation technique has been learned by tens of thousands of students in schools, colleges, and universities all over the country. There is also extensive published research to document the technique's wide-ranging health benefits for mind, body, and society. I am starting this foundation to ensure that every child in America who wants to meditate can learn,' Mr. Lynch says.

The David Lynch Foundation will fund in-school TM programs—and support scientific research on the effects of the technique—for developing a students' brain potential, improving academic performance, and helping students with learning disabilities, high blood pressure, and other stress-related disorders, such as anxiety, depression, drug abuse, etc.

Mr. Lynch has been practising the Transcendental Meditation technique for 32 years.
