The David Lynch Foundation, established in 2005, helps to prevent and eradicate the all-pervasive epidemic of trauma and toxic stress among underserved populations, through promoting widespread implementation of the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation (TM) program in order to improve health, cognitive capabilities, and performance in life. The Foundation has helped to bring TM to more than one million children and adults around the world. We focus our efforts on students; veterans; and survivors of violence and abuse. In addition, we fund university and medical school research to assess the effects of the TM program on academic performance, ADHD and other learning disorders, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, cardiovascular disease, post-traumatic stress, and diabetes. The effectiveness of our programs has been researched and endorsed by leading medical schools and government agencies, including Harvard Medical School, and the National Institutes of Health.
