Filmmaker David Lynch thinks Transcendental Meditation can help war veterans overcome post-traumatic stress and reintegrate into civilian life — so much so that he's betting $1 million on it!
The David Lynch Foundation, dedicated to teaching at-risk groups "scientifically proven stress-reducing" meditative techniques, has launched Operation Warrior Wellness to benefit 10,000 veterans and their families.
The man behind cinema classics like Mulholland Drive and Blue Velvet, who swears practicing TM for over 30 years has changed his life, told sources:
“It’s so good that we have Operation Warrior Wellness. For sure, TM is a stress buster — a traumatic-stress buster. And when these soldiers get this simple, effortless technique, they’re going to get their lives back again. It’s not hocus-pocus."
The generous charity donation will be go toward helping out Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, the Wounded Warrior Project and UCLA’s Operation Mend.
