This episode is by far my favorite. It is the most practical instruction in how we can achieve our highest potential. David focuses not on the physical skill required in this industry but rather on the creative force and mental capacity it takes.

This bonus video is a real lesson about the mind of a filmmaker. Glad I could have the chance to learn from David!

David Lynch is so dear to me because of his authenticity and he never compromised. He's such a rarity in the big film business. I want to express myself as thoroughly and uniquely as he does. This masterclass really clued me in and gives me extra chtzpuh to do so! I'm so grateful this exists.

A great story teller and a beautiful mind. Very grateful that he took the time to share with us. As someone born in India I know the value of transcedental meditation and hope you will consider this for yourselves as it is the one hand that will always hold yours until you release it was but your own hand.

What a fascinating mind... Very eccentric thinker (to my mind at least) Great course and I feel I am much better equipped to continue writing my screenplay now...

Thank you Mr. Lynch, I enjoyed learning from you and especially enjoyed watching the subtle changes in the background... Informative, creative and equally entertaining.

This class + bonus chapter have taught me a lot about my own creativety and how to avoid negativity in such a beautiful way. His way of teaching was lively and if we were in the same room. Amazing. Started meditating a week ago, I am feeling the difference. I'm definitely going to try his method like, tonight. Very pleased with his class...I didn't not want it to end.


This bonus chapter contains information I really needed to hear. Thanks David for highlighting how to remove negativity and stress out of work. I work long hours editing in front of the computer and struggle with the physical aspect of video production. Have been scheduling time for wellness inside and out. First time hearing about the Transcendental Meditation you spoke of. Will give it a go. Looking forward to expanding my consciousness :)

I respect that he's willing to pour out everything he knows or learned about creativity, fishing for ideas, and staying true to ideas. Thank you Sir.

an excellent Masterclass. The Master Lynch is a true beacon that illuminates the darkness of the conscious and unconscious mind, it shows what to do with the creativity that floats fragmented and confused under the surface of the known. I really liked that his Masterclass is more free of exercises and workbooks to allow the creativity of each one to emerge and encourage the appropriation of David's advice. Very pleased with this great teacher.
