Meditation Creativity Peace: Documentary

Screening of Meditation Creativity Peace
 Friday 14th September 2012, 2pm
At The Andrew Stewart Cinema, Gilmorehill Centre, Glasgow University
Free Admission

Iconic filmmaker David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive, INLAND EMPIRE) is featured in a unique film entitled “Meditation Creativity Peace: Documentary of a 16-Country Tour,” which chronicles his travels throughout the world in 2007. During this tour he spoke to tens of thousands of college students about his practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique, his creative and artistic processes, and the ultimate goal of the David Lynch Foundation: to create peace in the world through meditation.
The aim of the screening is to boost awareness of Transcendental Meditation among the students of Glasgow, however the screening is not limited only to students.

The screening will be followed by a brief talk from a teacher of the TM Centre in Glasgow, providing information on how people can sign up to learn the technique.
The 68-minute narrative is drawn from hundreds of hours of filmed question-and-answer sessions with college students and the general public, along with press interviews, at film schools in Jerusalem, London, Dublin, Tallinn (Estonia), Helsinki, Rome, Vienna, Berlin, Lisbon, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, and dozens of others cities.

The tour was organized by the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace (, a nonprofit organization Lynch established in 2005 to bring the stress-reducing, creativity-enhancing Transcendental Meditation technique to at-risk populations. In the past six years the Foundation has provided scholarships for meditation instruction for nearly 200,000 inner-city school students, veterans with post-traumatic stress, incarcerated adults and teens, and homeless adults and children throughout the United States, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe.
