PhilaMOCA and the David Lynch Foundation are excited to announce a free screening of David Lynch's Transcendental Meditation tour documentary MEDITATION, CREATIVITY, PEACE (2012). The screening will be held at PhilaMOCA on Sunday, November 10, 2013, at 7:30 p.m., along with a post-film discussion on Transcendental Meditation by a Philadelphia-based TM instructor.  The film follows Lynch's travels over a five-year period and across 16 countries to give a series of lectures exploring his relationship with Transcendental Meditation.

Transcendental Meditation is a form of meditation which allows practitioners to transcend self-imposed barriers through mindful self-reflection. According to studies conducted by the Foundation, it has been shown to reduce stress and increase clarity of mind. To that end, David Lynch and his foundation have sought to spread those benefits of this increasingly popular form of meditation; it's current adherents include schools throughout the United States with the Foundation's Quiet Time Program, members of the United States military through its Operation Warrior Wellness, and various prisons and homeless shelters through outreach programs established by the Foundation. As of 2013, Transcendental Meditation has touched the lives of over six million people, reaching across borders, religions, and ethnicities in its attempt to mend stressed minds.

PhilaMOCA and the David Lynch Foundation previously teamed together with Lynch-themed musicians Silencio in 2013 for PhilaMOCA's "Eraserhood Forever (And Ever)" exhibit, which showcased offbeat selections of art and music inspired by the films of David Lynch. MEDITATION, CREATIVITY, PEACE intends to shift the focus onto Lynch himself as it allows the director, in his own words, to promote the meditative practices that have helped him to harness his creative energies. The film follows Lynch on a 16-country tour as he passionately speaks about the transformative power of meditation to political leaders, film students and other curious minds, and relates it to his personal experience as a practitioner for the past 35 years.

ABOUT PHILAMOCA: Housed in the historic Finney & Son building, a former showcase for tombstones and mausoleums that dates back to 1865, the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art (PhilaMOCA) is a Philadelphia-based art-space that exists to celebrate that intersection of art and culture where weird blossoms. In the past, it has been home to exhibits showcasing various forms of subversive art, screenings highlighting underground films, and other popular, if unusual forms of entertainment that range from burlesque to improvised theater. PhilaMOCA hosts 250+ events a year in its attempt to supply Philadelphia with a thriving alternative culture.
