The Transcendental Meditation technique featured prominently amongst film screenings, music, and panel discussions throughout the third annual David-Lynch curated 'Festival of Disruption' last weekend in Brooklyn, New York.
At the start of this year's Festival—the first to be held in New York City— filmmaker David Lynch said, ''Remember this: Transcendental Meditation is the real thing. It will bring a good life. If you don't have it already, get it.''
During an interview with Bob Roth, CEO of the David Lynch Foundation on May 20, actress Naomi Watts described her first meeting with David Lynch: ''I didn't feel like I was having an audition, I felt like I was talking with a friend. I felt buoyant, relaxed.''
Watts recalled how she learned about Transcendental Meditation after she began working on films with Lynch: ''He [Lynch] never tried to sell me on TM. I just knew he took that time each day during lunch. I just watched it. I saw him come out so clear, like the reset button had been hit. . . . That led me [to Transcendental Meditation].''
As Bob Roth explained in his opening remarks Saturday, May 19, ''Look what's going on in the world today. Constant upheaval. Constant disruptions. And we often don't have any control over what's going on outside. It can be a nightmare. Inside, we do things to access our own reservoir of creativity and resilience, and we actually can turn it into kind of a . . . festival of disruption.''
The Festival of Disruption is described as ''a music, art, film & creativity festival with artists hand-picked by David Lynch.''
Proceeds support the David Lynch Foundation, which provides Transcendental Meditation to at-risk populations including veterans with PTSD, urban schoolchildren, and women survivors of violence.
