David Lynch

Meditation, Creativity, Peace; Documentary of a 16 Country Tour

Where does David Lynch get all those ideas? Why is he so prolific over so many years—with iconic works of film, photography, music, and painting? And what’s the deal with meditation?

Ten years ago, a team of filmmakers followed David Lynch on a sixteen-country tour and documented a series of lectures and intimate interviews on Lynch's creative process and his relationship to Transcendental Meditation. The resulting footage has been compiled into a documentary entitled Meditation, Creativity, Peace.
