About Us

Mission & Values

The David Lynch Foundation and David Lynch Foundation Caucasus are dedicated to providing the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation® technique, at no cost, to those who have the greatest need and least access to it.


The David Lynch Foundation helps to prevent and eradicate the epidemic of trauma and toxic stress among at-risk and disadvantaged populations through the widespread implementation of the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique in order to improve their health, cognitive capabilities, and performance in life.


Working in partnership with an international network of specially trained instructors, the David Lynch Foundation is a global catalyst for the adoption of the Transcendental Meditation program by individuals and institutions by:

  • Establishing mainstream understanding of the effects of Transcendental Meditation among government, health, education, media, and business leaders, as well as the general public
  • Raising funds to implement TM programs in institutions that serve at-risk populations
  • Ensuring the institutional implementation of the TM program on a national and international basis
  • Funding independent research on the TM program to more profoundly understand the wide-ranging effects of the technique on the brain, health, and behavior

Importance of Our Work

Chronic stress leads to emotional and physical suffering that can fuel poverty, violence, and crime. For millions who suffer most in the U.S. and abroad, treatment is not available or current treatments are not highly effective. DLF’s programs lift toxic stress, without struggle and without drugs. In doing so, our programs help restore individual lives, families, and communities.
