The Gilbert Slomowitz Foundation

Outreach/Media Development

This program is designed to help raise awareness of the benefits of TM for the general public. Multi-media materials such as videos, print and web-based products are being developed to inform the public about the benefits of TM in a user-friendly and consistent manner.

 

Our first major initiative was the development of a film entitled Meditation Makeover: Incense and Beads Not Required. This film documents the effects of TM on a local, Washington, DC business. Click here to learn more about this film.

 

Nancy Slomowitz met with David Lynch, acclaimed filmmaker and founder of the David Lynch Foundation, in New York City on December 12, 2010 at the Change Begins Within fundraising event for the David Lynch Foundation. David's comments about the film are shown below.

I THINK NANCY DID A GREAT JOB ON THIS FILM ......  IT MOVES ALONG VERY NICELY ..... IT MAKES IT'S POINT VERY WELL .....  IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO SHOW TM FROM THIS ANGLE BECAUSE  THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE OUT THERE THINK AND ACT AND SUFFER JUST LIKE THE ONES SHE SHOWS IN THE FILM ...... MANY MANY PEOPLE WILL RELATE TO THESE PEOPLE SHOWN AND SEE THE BENEFITS OF STARTING TM RIGHT AWAY TO REALLY ENJOY LIFE ..... TM  ISN'T NEW AGE MUMBO JUMBO - IT'S A TECHNIQUE THAT REALLY WORKS AND REALLY BRINGS A MUCH MUCH BETTER LIFE - AND THIS FILM OF NANCY'S REALLY SHOWS THAT .....  WAY TO GO NANCY !!!

Testimonials from TM Centers Around the World

"The video will be a very effective tool for awakening interest especially among skeptics. It will be great to play along with a TM teacher's lecture. (I've instructed over 1,000 people in TM). Touches the heart. Thank you!"

North Carolina (USA)

 

"Your video is very inspiring and moving. Thank you for helping people to overcome their fears and stereotypes about TM. My husband and I will take this to executives throughout Chicago-land. It is so wonderfully done."

Chicago, Illinois (USA)

 

"I want to express my deepest gratitude to you ... for your foundation and making it possible for me to learn TM. From the very first day I began to do TM I noticed the change. Right away the pains in my tummy that I called a nervous stomach or IBS had gone away. That was where the majority of my stress collected and now that stress was starting to dissolve and go away. It was an ongoing condition that I have had for many many years. Under stress it would flare up and leave me feeling debilitated. It's the best gift I've ever given myself. I look forward to each meditation knowing that I'm one meditation closer to pure bliss and a state of higher conscious awareness."

Auburn, Washington (USA)

 

“We had a wonderful training … this past weekend. My son and I both are seeing positive benefits and looking forward to the follow up ... I'm less than a week in and each day just gets better. Can't wait to see what's in store ....  Again, thanks for your support.”
