David Lynch and Trancendental Meditation

Interesting portrait in the London Times of a devoted practitioner of Trancendental Meditation (TM), who just happens to be filmmaker David Lynch. Apparently he hopes to raise $7B to put it in the schools, but I think this article is most interesting for its portrait of a faithful TMer (30+ years) and its surprisingly sympathetic treatment of TM. Twenty minutes twice a day: it's "easy, easy, easy;" and, we learn, it helps everyone, including kids; and now science is backing it up as being theraputic. (via Robot Wisdom)

Ironically TM is, in fact a registered trademark (TM)...so I suppose there won't be any question of the separation of Church and State...TM certainly seems to be business as opposed to religion...

The skepdic.com article is great -- I liked this part: "What other relaxation program has a support group for ex-relaxers?
