Talk: Meditation, Comedy, New Fatherhood, Recovery, and Life

Comedian, actor, and best-selling author Russell Brand has been practicing Transcendental Meditation for nearly 10 years. He says the technique has been instrumental in fostering creativity, appreciating fatherhood, and maintaining his recovery from addiction. Bob Roth, a 45-year TM teacher, taught Russell to meditate and the two remain close friends. Bob and Russell will be discussing the benefits of practicing Transcendental Meditation, how TM has personally helped Russell, and what the David Lynch Foundation is doing to bring meditation to people suffering from stress and trauma. They look forward to sharing their conversation with you. ‚Äč
