Transcendental Meditation has made its rounds with celebrities as far back as when the Beatles were a unit, but it’s once again creeping up as the latest trend among celebrities.

Rupert Murdoch recently tweeted on his indoctrination into the mantra meditation movement, Oprah Winfrey devoted an entire show to it, and David Lynch even launched a nonprofit foundation for the practice.
The technique was established in India by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the 1950s and has spread worldwide since, used as a means to relieve stress and build personal development. The practice involves twice-a-day, 15- to 20-minute meditations, and courses are taught by certified instructors for a fee. See which other stars are endorsing the practice and taking time for some inner peace!

“Trying to learn transcendental meditation. Everyone recommends, not that easy to get started, but said to improve everything!” tweeted Rupert Murdoch. The 82-year-old media mogul is the latest celebrity to jump on the meditation train, showing us it’s never too late to do some inner reflection. Murdoch might need a stress reliever from being embroiled in some heavy-duty News Corp. scandals—from phone tapping to bribery.
Earlier this month, David Lynch sat down with actor Russell Brand on stage for a Q&A session at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles to discuss his documentary on Transcendental Meditation, Meditation, Creativity, Peace. In the film, Lynch says the meditation “gives the experience of the sweetest nectar of life, pure bliss consciousness.”

The Mulholland Drive director is not a new recruit in the practice, as he began his ascent into spiritual mantras 40 years ago. In 2005, he started the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and Peace, a nonprofit organization that funds the practice for at-risk youth, veterans, the homeless, the incarcerated, and more.
