Visionary filmmaker David Lynch is putting his name on a new M.A. program in film at Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. A yearlong studio program, the David Lynch M.A. in Film allows participants to dive deeply into their own creative process and realize a major project. 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 the arts.

Tanell Pretorius of The Iowa Source conducted an interview with Stuart Tanner, co-chair of MUM's Media and Communications Department as well as an acclaimed producer and director of documentary films for the BBC, National Geographic, and Discovery Channel, that brings out more about the new M.A. in Film degree program, including the role of Consciousness-Based Education and Transcendental Meditation in the creative porcess.

Stuart Tanner:

''Creativity is not a specialty; it is an innate ability for a human being. It is not really about developing creativity; you simply get rid of anything that gets in the way of creativity. That can be stress, emotional upset, and noise in the head. Your brain is like a sophisticated transmitter, receiving and sending out information all the time. Your awareness is what tunes in to a particular channel. If there isn't clarity, your awareness can't fine tune into a channel—all you end up with is hiss.

''Consciousness-Based Education gives you the opportunity to silence those signals and to experience deep silence, pure consciousness; no noise. From the research and reports of experience, we know that when you come back into activity you experience less noise and more clarity.'' 

Iowa Source: And how is that implemented in the classroom?

''You do the groundwork that prepares you for the creative experience, and in the classroom you have the time, space, equipment, and advice on the craft to manifest your idea into something that everybody can see and experience. The most fundamental things are clear vision and clear execution—and this leads to a strong experience for your audience.''
