This course was magnificent! Lynch's insights into the creative process were so valuable and his overview of Transcendental Meditation was compelling. I will recommend this course to everyone.
"Everything is connected. You can be working on a painting and conceive an idea for a film." Lynch reveals the importance of seeing ideas everywhere.
This is the first class I tried on master class and it is definitely the most inspiring class I’ve ever had in my life. This is what I’ve been looking for. What a jewel. What a gem. This class helps you on so many different levels – creativity, spirituality philosophy and so much more. Thank you.
Very inspirational and one of the best Masterclasses i've seen so far! David Lynch focuses on how to be creative and find your own style rather than just talking about the craft.
