FACTS

The David Lynch Foundation has provided scholarships for more than 200,000 students and veterans to learn to meditate.

Transcendental Meditation is a simple, easily learned technique, practiced for 15 to 20 minutes twice daily, sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. According to research funded by the National Institutes of Health and published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, the technique reduces stress and stress-related disorders, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, cardiovascular disease, and substance abuse.

Prominent meditators include Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Russell Brand, Ellen DeGeneres, Clint Eastwood, Mehmet Oz, Martin Scorsese, Jerry Seinfeld, Russell Simmons, and Oprah Winfrey.

In Memoriam: Angel Juarbe, Jr.

Posted on September 10th, 2011

 

Among the many first-responders who died at the World Trade Center on 9/11 was a young firefighter named Angel Juarbe Junior. He had already finished his morning shift when the call came in, but decided to go out and help. 

We had the pleasure of working with Angel on a TV show shortly before his tragic death. Angel was a finalist on “Murder in Small Town X”, where we quickly learned to love his incredible personality and willingness to help others. Angel eventually beat all the other contestants to win in the final episode of the series, which aired September 4th, a mere week before 9/11.

Just as 9/11 changed America, meeting Angel changed everyone of us. So, on this 10th anniversary, as we join the rest of the nation to remember those that were lost, we pause a little bit longer… to remember Angel, and to remember the family he left behind.
