30 years of transcendental meditation

In addition to being a prestigious American filmmaker, David Lynch has over 30 years of practicing Transcendental Meditation and in 2005 he founded the David Lynch Foundation, an organization that promotes conscious-based education as a path to achieve world peace. In this video he talks about the technique applied to creativity and in his letter of presentation of the Foundation he tells us the reasons and intentions that led him to its foundation:

‘In this modern world that we live in, full of fear and uncertainty, each child should have one class period a day to dive within themselves and experience the quiet and happiness of the vast amount of energy and intelligence that is deep within each one of us. This is the way to save the new generation.

Over more than 30 years, I have ‘dived’ within me through the Transcendental Meditation technique. Mi life and my world have changed and I am not the only one. Millions of people from all aged, religions and lifestyle practice this technique and enjoy its incredible benefits.

Someday, hopefully very soon, ‘inner dive’ will be considered as a basic preparation technique for learning and a tool to develop the creative potential of the mind and will become a standard and recognize part of each school’s curriculum. Today world’s tensions are a huge burden to our children. There are hundreds of schools, with thousands of children, who are willing to relieve stress and discover each student’s full potential by providing this type of consciousness-based education.

The Foundation was established to ensure that every child in America who wants to learn and practice Transcendental Meditation, is able to. TM’s (Transcendental Meditation) Program has been thoroughly researched, and it is widely practiced throughout the World to develop all the full creative potential of the brain and mind, improve health, reduce stress and improve academic outcomes. We offer grants to students so they can learn the technique and receive full monitoring program throughout their school years, and to ensure they receive the maximum benefit. We also offer grants to students willing to attend the growing number of schools and universities founded under this approach.

I’ve had the pleasure to meet many students that ‘dive’ within them and experience consciousness-based education. These students are unique individuals. They are amazing, self-sufficient, fully awake, full of energy, happy, creative, intelligent and ultimately humans. Their experience is the proof that consciousness-based education is deeply good for our schools and our world.

Individual peace is the foundation for world peace. By offering the next generation a consciousness-based education, we can promote a solid foundation for a healthy, harmonic and pacific world. To this end, the Foundation also supports the establishment of Universities of World Peace, which will train the next generation in a new profession: peace professional.

Thank you very much for your interest. And, please, remember that consciousness-based education is not a luxury. For our kids, who are growing up in a stressful and frightening global crisis, is a necessity.’

La educación había sido una de las mayores preocupaciones del hindú desde el principio mismo de su trayectoria, y las escuelas constituyen uno de los terrenos más apropiados para llevar a la práctica sus enseñanzas. Con ese fin, Brockwood se estableció en Hampshire como una escuela privada con capacidad para un grupo reducido de estudiantes en régimen de internado. La comunidad de profesores y alumnos tenía un carácter notablemente internacional, con gente procedente de más de una veintena de países. El propósito era despertar la inteligencia del estudiante y del educador a la naturaleza y consecuencias de su conducta y forma de pensar, en todas las facetas de la vida cotidiana. Lo importante no es conseguir que el alumno saque buenas notas, sino que sea capaz de enfrentarse adecuadamente a todos los retos de su relación con el mundo. Una de las actividades más significativas de la institución son sus charlas abiertas. En esta, que tuvo lugar en mayo de 1976, el propio Krishnamurti, el físico David Bohm y el psicoanalista David Shainberg reflexionan sobre conceptos como soledad, libertad, transformación, pensamiento o mente.Brockwood Park is a school founded by Jiddu Krishnamurti and a group of partners in 1969, with the intention of carrying out their educational proposals. Education was one of the major concerns of the Indian from the very beginning of his career, and schools are one of the most suitable land to implement his teachings. To that end, Brockwood settled in Hampshire (UK) as a private school for up to a small group of students as boarders. The community of teachers and students had a markedly international character, with people from more than twenty countries. The purpose was to awaken the intelligence of the student and the educator to the nature and consequences of their behavior and way of thinking, in all facets of daily life. The important thing is not to get the students get good grades, but is able to adequately face all the challenges of their relationship with the world. One of the most significant activities of the institution are your open chats. In this, which took place in May 1976, Krishnamurti, the physicist David Bohm and psychoanalyst David Shainberg reflect on concepts like solitude, freedom, transformation, thought or mind."

Doctor por la Universidad de Londres desde 1981, fue nombrado Sir por la Reina Isabel II de Inglaterra en 2003 debido a la relevancia de su actividad en el estudio de las relaciones entre la educación y el arte. Actualmente es profesor emérito de la Universidad de Warwick, en Reino Unido. En 1998 el gobierno británico lo puso al frente del comité consultivo nacional sobre educación creativa y cultura, donde realizó la mayor investigación nacional sobre la importancia de la creatividad en la educación y la economía del Reino Unido. Fruto del trabajo en dicho comité se publicó el llamado 'Informe Robinson', que tuvo un gran impacto al poner de relieve el escaso apoyo que hasta entonces había recibido la creatividad y destacar la importancia que esta tenía en el futuro, ya no sólo del país, sino de la propia humanidad. Además del británico, durante su carrera ha trabajado para otros gobiernos como el de Hong Kong, el de Singapur o la Comisión Europea. Sus obras principales son 'El elemento: cómo encontrar tu pasión puede cambiarlo todo', libro traducido a más de 20 idiomas, y 'Fuera de nuestras mentes: aprende a ser creativo'. En este vídeo, que recoge su conferencia íntegra en The School of Life en marzo de 2011, Robinson explica que todos y cada uno de nosotros tenemos una pasión, que es difícil ser feliz sin encontrarla y que la educación es fundamental para reconocerla y potenciarla.Ken Robinson is a British educator, writer and lecturer, expert on issues related to creativity, quality of education, innovation and human resources. PhD from the University of London since 1981, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2003 because of the relevance of his activity in the study of the relations between education and art. Currently, he is a professor emeritus at the University of Warwick (UK). In 1998, the British government put him in charge of the national advisory committee on creative education and culture, where he carried out the greatest national research on the importance of creativity in the education and the economy of the United Kingdom. As a result of his work at such committee, the 'Robinson Report' was published, which had a great impact by highlighting the lack of support that had previously received creativity and noted the importance of this in the future, not only of the country but of Humanity itself. Besides the British government, during his career he has worked for other governments like that of Hong Kong, Singapore and the European Commission. His main works are 'The element: How finding your passion changes everything', translated to more than 20 languages, and 'Out of our minds: Learning to be creative'. In this video, which includes his full lecture at The School of Life in March 2011, Robinson explains that each and every one of us has a passion, it's hard to be happy without finding it and education is crucial to recognize it and enhance it.
