  • “Since I started meditating, I feel more rested; I sleep better. I get more done at home and at work. I am actually talking to people—talking to my colleagues. Until a year ago when I started meditating I had been a ghost. Now I am a veteran who wants to help other veterans. I have the energy, I have the good ideas, and I’m able to actually act on them. I have become human again.”⁣⁣
- Corey O’Brien, Army Veteran⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Corey is a married father of five. He served two tours of duty in Iraq behind him and lives with a Traumatic Brian Injury and Post Traumatic Stress (PTS). He credits his recovery to his practice of Transcendental Meditation, which he learned through a program partnership between the #ResurrectingLivesFoundation, founded by Dr. Chrisanne Gordon and instructed by David Kidd, and the David Lynch Foundation, at no fee. ⁣⁣
⁣
TM is a simple, easily learned technique to increase energy and focus, and reduce stress and anxiety. Peer-reviewed studies have found TM reduces PTS symptoms including anxiety, depression and sleep deprivation.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We’re hosting a lunch and an introductory talk on TM for Veterans in NYC on Friday, March 22, at 1:00pm, in partnership with the New York State Health Foundation. If you are a veteran who is interested in learning to meditate, you can register for an upcoming free course during the lunch meeting. For more information, contact Veterans@DavidLynchFoundation.org⁣

  • The origins of Transcendental Meditation date back to the warrior classes of ancient times—individuals who, when faced with an opponent, could not afford to act out of anger, fear, jealousy, rage or revenge. But who required, above all, profound clarity, equanimity, resilience, compassion, strength, and power of both mind and body. Who deemed it a failure when forced to fight. These are noble qualities that spontaneously develop through the regular practice of the TM technique. ⁣
⁣
The men and women of today's Armed Forces require these same exceptional traits. For the past ten years, with the support of great American heroes like Jerry Yellin and Ed Schloeman, the David Lynch Foundation has brought TM to many thousands of cadets, active military personnel, and veterans (and their families) with dramatic results—helping to create a new generation of military leadership. ⁣
⁣
Here is a short video of work done by TM teacher Dave Zobeck, who has taught more than 800 cadets to meditate at Norwich University—America’s oldest private military college.⁣

  • “After I attended all four sessions, I was off and meditating on my own. Apart from a few days with the flu, I didn’t miss a session. I surprised myself at how much I stuck to it… I meditated for 20 minutes every morning and afternoon, on gym floors and airplane seats and my sofa, with my dog napping next to me.”⁣
⁣
@nytimes wellness columnist Marisa Meltzer came to our Midtown offices to learn the Transcendental Meditation technique from one of our skilled teachers, Peter Lamoureux. Read about her positive experience adopting the practice at the link in our bio.
