The Video: Jim Carrey, who practices the Transcendental Meditation technique, gave the 2014 commencement speech at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, IA. This video was produced by DLF.TV, a branch of the David Lynch Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded for the purpose of bringing Transcendental Meditation to at-risk populations.
The Technique: Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural, effortless technique practiced 20 minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. It is easy to learn and enjoyable to practice, and is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. Over six million people have learned it — people of all ages, cultures, and religions — and over 350 published research studies have found that the TM technique markedly reduces stress, anxiety, and fatigue, and promotes balanced functioning of mind and body.
