Bob Roth, CEO of the David Lynch Foundation (DLF), visits with TM Talks after the successful MEDITATE AMERICA Virtual Celebration and Concert, held on December 3, 2020. MEDITATE AMERICA is a partnership between the U.S. TM organization and DLF to bring the TM technique to people in need, including healthcare workers on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic, veterans with PTSD, and families living under toxic stress and trauma.

Mr. Roth talks about this national initiative and shares highlights of the event, including

  • performances by Sting and Graham Nash
  • a conversation between Hugh Jackman and Katy Perry about their TM practice
  • inspiring videos of DLF’s work with vulnerable populations
  • plus the high point of the evening: David Lynch presenting the “Peace on Earth Award” to Tony Nader, M.D., Ph.D., M.A.R.R., leader of the nonprofit Transcendental Meditation organizations worldwide.

Mario Orsatti, host of TM Talks and Director of Advanced Techniques of the TM program for the United States, talked with Mr. Roth on December 6, 2020. This popular episode aired again on December 3, 2023.
