At a recent three-day music festival on the Isle of Wight in England, attended by 50,000 people, the David Lynch Foundation was invited to make short presentations from the main stage about its work in the world. The Foundation supports at-risk groups including veterans, inner-city schoolchildren, the homeless, and prison inmates to overcome traumatic stress through the Transcendental Meditation Programme.

After a short recorded message by David Lynch, Dr Peter Warburton, administrator of the Transcendental Meditation Programme for the UK, spoke to a crowd of 20,000 about the scientifically documented benefits of Consciousness-Based Education. He also showed an inspiring three-minute video depicting students all over the world practising Transcendental Meditation.

Dr Warburton reported that the event was a great success—the crowd responded with openness to the idea of Transcendental Meditation in schools, to help students reduce stress, develop integrated brain functioning, and improve academic achievement.
