A true modcon icon, David Lynch has modernised the conscious world through his daring creativity, dark seduction and expansive enduring stillness in his work. His art always blurs the lines of fantasy and reality. He’s the personification of cool in every great sense of the world.
And he is a meditator.
Right back to my days watching twin peaks, I was transformed into a world where I was so gripped and fully immersed in Lynch’s world. My mind would wander in the surreal ambience, senses awakened, you knew that Lynch was a man set on getting into our heads.
David is a well known advocate of TM, transcendental meditation (link). Meditation in its non-dual capacity is the most real and surreal experience we could have. And so its almost not surprising that he is a meditator.
The David Lynch Foundation is for me, one of the most fascinating and interesting out there. A foundation for consciousness-based education and world peace.
It was established in 2005 to fund the implementation of scientifically proven stress-reducing modalities, including the Transcendental Meditation program, for at-risk populations such as underserved inner-city students; veterans with PTSD and their families; women and children who are survivors of violence and abuse; American Indians suffering from diabetes, cardiovascular disease and high suicide rates; homeless men participating in reentry programs who are striving to overcome addictions; and incarcerated juveniles and adults.
He will celebrate the 10 year anniversary on April 1st with a show at the Ace Hotel featuring some of the worlds greatest musicians in one room.
