About Us

What We Do

The David Lynch Foundation is spearheading a new age in the prevention and treatment of traumatic stress through the promotion and practice of TM, a groundbreaking, evidence-based, drug-free solution.

Educate and Raise Awareness

DLF is bringing awareness of the proven physical, psychological, and behavioral impacts of the simple TM technique in addressing key issues of stress and trauma in underserved populations - and bringing this lifelong tool to those in need who wouldn't otherwise have access to it. We have partnered with research institutions such as University of Chicago's Crime Lab to launch pilot Quiet Time programs in several schools and analyze the benefits results of TM in inner-city school settings.

Develop, Implement, and Operate Programs

We bring our highly trained, certified teachers directly to the people, in their hospitals, rehab centers, or their villages overseas. We include all staff members of organizations in TM training to transform entire communities. We adapt each TM-based program to the specific needs of that community. DLF has partnered with organizations such as VA hospitals, Manhattan's Family Justice Center, and middle and high schools across the country to bring these programs to those who need it most.

Increase Support for TM Treatment

Through community outreach, strategic partnerships, and collaboration in all levels of government, DLF is demonstrating the positive role TM can play as a valuable and cost-effective tool for addressing critical issues of stress and trauma – and changing the lives of individuals, families, and communities around the world. Our programs and research are supported by individuals and institutions, such as THEARC in Washington, D.C., government officials, and world-class scientists, who are committed to forwarding this work.
