Unique! Pulled me all the way through in one sitting.

This is one of my favorite all time movie directors, so i liked anything about it! Congratulations to get this instructor to Masterclass group of teachers and mentors!!

David Lynch has a very unique style. His thoughts on ideas and how to harness the power of our own consciousness is curious and compelling.

Not very long, but really intense lesson in spirituality, creativity and cinema, by one of the few geniuses of world cinema of our time. Truly transcendental from beginning to end.

I loved it. It was like listening to the verbal equivalent of being hugged by an admirer.

Great Explanation of TM, I always wondered about TM as so many high performing individuals or people who recently discovered TM are always raving about it. Interesting how I never Googled how to do it. As intense as 1hr30mins may sound, I believe those would be very enjoyable. As my normal focus meditations, I always have to stop myself, or feel like I could sit there ad-infinitum...Definitely something I will explore. After finding a (certified TM) teacher.

When you were moved to tears, talking about Sunset Blvd, I was moved to tears. There is something so important and beautiful to this medium of sound and moving image. I don't know what that is exactly but I will continue to stay curious. You have once again, stoked that fire. Thank you David. Thank you for helping give permission to stay more creative and less in the "Formula" world to which Hollywood wore out years ago. The "idea" is the most important. Thank you for saying that word over and over. You have been such a fantastic inspiration over the years and I hope that you make more films if it still excites you. Much Love to you sir. Thank you for making this journey a more interesting one.

Mexican studying at Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica (CCC) currently leaving to film a documentary at VGIK in Russia. David was clear and intimate, regarding all aspects of life with a surgical focus on cinema. Truly a guide. I feel the truth of his words in my own process.

I was mesmerized by Dune, David pulled the essence of Herbert's vision and placed it on the screen; my view of the world and universe changed that day, and now I see why. David dives deep, I watched his hands, his eyes, listened to his voice, the man is a genius in that he makes universal questions seem simple, the nuances of relationships painted with every colour from his generous palette. I have done vipassana meditation for years, but now David has me very curious about TM. Loved his master class.
