Consciousness and Creativity
"The Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple, effortless way to dive within, to experience an ocean of pure consciousness, pure creativity, pure knowingness.
It's a unique experience but also very familiar - it is your own Self."
David Lynch, filmmaker and chair of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace
Increase intelligence and creativity
Your brain did not come fully assembled at birth. Through the natural processes of maturation and experience, your brain is being created anew at every moment, to support all your thinking, deciding and behaviour. The on-going creation of your brain is a dynamic process.
The experience of restful alertness during Transcendental Meditation creates the optimum condition to unfold your full potential, for maximum intelligence and creativity in a completely effortless way, while preventing the damaging effects of stress on the brain.
The effect of Transcendental Meditation
Torrance test of creative thinking
Individuals who learned Transcendental Meditation showed increased creativity in comparison to controls, as measured by a higher level of pictorial originality when measured after five months of practice. They also showed increased creativity, as measured by higher levels of pictorial flexibility and verbal fluency (not charted).
"I think painting in watercolours is quite a pure art form. You need space in your head, clarity of mind, some silence to do it. For me, Transcendental Meditation really helps in this way and allows my work to flow with more creativity, more spontaneity."

Founder of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness Based Education and World Peace:
"I have been diving within through the Transcendental Meditation technique for over 30 years. It has changed my life, my world."
