Benefits of Meditation: An Interview with Filmmaker David Lynch

David Lynch

I heard a phrase, “True happiness is not out there, true happiness lies within.” This phrase had a ring of truth to it for me, but the phrase didn’t tell me where the within was, nor did it tell me how to get there. So it was a very frustrating phrase. I wasn’t interested in meditation for a long time because I thought it was a fad and a waste of time. But then one day it suddenly occurred to me that maybe meditation was a way to go within and find that happiness.

From a captivating interview with filmmaker David Lynch, whose foundation recently hosted a benefit to provide meditation training to more than 10,000 veterans with PTSD.
