School of Thought

A documentary film by Tony Perri

A small midwestern school joins forces with a legendary Hollywood director in an ambitious mission to eliminate violence and life-threatening stress in schools across the planet.

The documentary, SCHOOL OF THOUGHT, is a mysterious and amazing adventure into the Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment with Academy Award-nominee, David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks and The Elephant Man).

David brings along a few friends to Fairfield, including Beatles collaborator, Donovan (Mellow Yellow, Hurdy Gurdy Man and Sunshine Superman) and the world-renowned quantum physicist, John Hagelin (What The Bleep Do We Know!?)

Together, these three peacemakers are touring the world with their mind-blowing solution to creating harmonious schools and world peace. Their answer: Have every student in every school practice Transcendental Meditation twice a day and watch them quickly become happier, healthier and more focused, thereby dissolving the life-threatening stress which typically manifests itself in young people through drug abuse and violence, often in fatal ways.

President, Canadian Association for Stress-Free Schools, Former Education Minister of New Brunswick

“When I served as Minister of Education for the province of New Brunswick, I investigated every program available to help our students to gain the most from their education. Today, I can say without hesitation that the Transcendental Meditation program is the only program that I know of that has been proven to be able to help every student irrespective of their level of ability.

We should seize the opportunity right away to introduce Consciousness-Based* Education to give the opportunity to every student to develop their total creative potential in a stress-free environment. I urge you not to deprive yourself or your students of the enormous benefits of this program.

We look forward to assisting you in implementing this remarkable educational program that will help you to unfold the inner genius of every student and develop their full creative intelligence so that they grow up to be healthy, happy, well-adjusted, successful adults.”
