David Lynch donates $1 million in grants through his foundation to teach veterans to meditate

LOS ANGELES — David Lynch wants soldiers and veterans to experience the stress-reducing benefits of Transcendental Meditation.

Lynch's namesake foundation is giving $1 million in grants to teach the meditation technique to active-duty military personnel and veterans and their families suffering from post-traumatic stress.

The filmmaker said Friday that the grants are from the Operation Warrior Wellness division of his foundation, which funds meditation instruction for various populations, including inner-city students and jail inmates.

Recipients of Operation Warrior Wellness grants include Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, the Wounded Warrior Project and UCLA's Operation Mend.

Lynch's credits include TV's "Twin Peaks" and the films "Mulholland Drive," ''Blue Velvet" and "Wild At Heart."
