Our Mission
The David Lynch Foundation helps to prevent and eradicate the all-pervasive epidemic of trauma and toxic stress among at-risk populations through promoting widespread implementation of the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation (TM) program in order to improve their health, cognitive capabilities and performance in life.

Our Vision
Working in partnership with an international network of specially trained instructors, the David Lynch Foundation will be a global catalyst for the adoption of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program by individuals and institutions by:

-Establishing mainstream understanding of the effects of Transcendental Meditation among government, health, education, media, and business leaders, as well as the general public
-Raising funds to implement TM pilot programs in institutions that serve at-risk populations
-Ensuring the institutional implementation of the TM program on a national and international basis
-Funding independent research on the TM program to more profoundly understand the wide-ranging effects of the technique on the brain, health and behavior
