On 8 June 2017 The Washington Post reported: With Washington at what feels like peak stress . . . Monday night [June 5] was a moment for its antidote: relaxing meditation. The David Lynch Foundation—a nonprofit started by the ''Twin Peaks'' director aimed at spreading the use of Transcendental Meditation to poor children in urban areas, veterans and victims of violence—held its first D.C. fundraiser, a celeb-studded concert at the Kennedy Center that drew an audience including first daughter/White House adviser Ivanka Trump and her husband and fellow West Winger, Jared Kushner.
''The show will help DLF to spread the use of Transcendental Meditation to disadvantaged kids in city schools, veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress, and victims of domestic and sexual violence,'' said foundation president Bob Roth. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.
The foundation is opening an office on Capitol Hill, and organizers said the sold-out show would bring meditation training to 10,000 Washingtonians.

''We'll be offering this to anyone and everyone who thinks they need some help,'' Roth said.
Performances were by comedians Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno and Margaret Cho, actor Hugh Jackman, and music by Ben Folds, Kesha, and Angelique Kidjo.
