More than 250,000 at-risk children and adults who suffer from the devastating effects of acute stress have learned the Transcendental Meditation technique over the past five years through the work of the David Lynch Foundation. Based on these experiences and a growing body of research documenting the dramatic benefits of TM practice for those suffering from post-traumatic stress, large-scale projects in schools, veteran service organizations, prisons, and homeless shelters are beginning in countries all over the world.

The video below is an inspiring highlight reel of some of the many TM projects funded by the David Lynch Foundation.

Video highlights:

War Veteran:

''A year ago this month I was suicidal. I was so low that I just wanted to not be here. . . . Transcendental Meditation saved my life.''

Congolese refugee:

''After my husband died my in-laws turned against me. They tortured me, almost killed me. . . . Those days I used to cry too much but now even the tears, they are holding. I'm great.''

Oregon Prison inmate:

''If you just take the time to meditate, free your mind, everything will come together.''

Native American tribal elder:

''I lost four members of my family to diabetes. I don't want that to happen to my people. . . . Since I started TM my sugar has been where it should be. So, I'm sold on TM.''

Dr. Mehmet Oz:

''Speaking as a scientist the amazing thing about Transcendental Meditation is the very well-established research showing the technique impacts things that we didn't think were changeable.''

CNN anchor Candy Crowley:

''The initial research on the effects of Transcendental Meditation in treating PTSD offers so much hope. Better then many things being tried—but at far less a cost.''
