On 3 June 2011 - Los Angeles reported: Acclaimed film director David Lynch has teamed up with Children of the Night, a shelter for at-risk teenage girls in Los Angeles, California, to raise awareness on a nationwide scale--including the Transcendental Meditation instruction the David Lynch Foundation has been providing to the shelter for the past 14 months. The peaceful effect of the meditation technique brings relief from traumatic stress and helps residents benefit from the organization's education programs. 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 education.

Lois Lee, founder and president of Children of the Night, said that all current residents—about 65—are now in the voluntary Transcendental Meditation program.

''It's just brought me a well of calmness that nothing else has been able to provide,'' said one 17-year old girl who has been meditating for a year.

Along with Ms Lee and David Lynch, renowned psychiatrist and author Dr Norman Rosenthal, film actor Ben Foster, and Emily Lynch, wife of David Lynch, who volunteers at the shelter, participated in an event there June 3, describing the benefits of Transcendental Meditation.
