Katy Perry: TM is the best thing I’ve ever done to bring more creativity, positive energy and peace into my life

Katy PerryKaty is on a roll. In 2011 she was the first artist to beat Michael Jackson’s record of 5 number one hits from one album. On her birthday last year she sent a tweet to over 25 million fans asking them to support the David Lynch Foundation.

Katy has practiced Transcendental Meditation for over 2 years, and says it’s the best thing she’s ever done to bring more creativity, positive energy and peace into her life. She says: “When I feel tired, tense, scared or depressed, I meditate. It clears my mind, and makes me feel more relaxed and happier. I have shared these experiences with my friends and I recommend it to all of them.

I support the David Lynch Foundation because it brings Transcendental Meditation to the attention of millions of people all over the world. People like war veterans, suffering from post traumatic stress disorders, children from poor suburbs in large cities, and girls and woman who were the victim of violence.

Help me celebrate my birthday by donating money to the DLF. This doesn’t just mean a lot to me personally, but to all the people that you will help with it.”

“The best thing I ever did in my life was to learn TM as an architectural student in 1973. I have benefitted in a multitude of ways from it’s simple, easy practice. In the morning, when I sit down to practise TM, it’s as if I receive a mental bath. Having more energy and clarity as a result of my TM practice, I am able to give and receive more, not only in my professional life, but in my personal life also.”

Peter Mullins, Architect


“As a musician, I feel that it helps me to perform better and as a teacher, it allows me to approach the classroom in a relaxed state of mind which, I believe, in turn has a positive effect on my students. I would highly recommend TM to anyone who is looking for an easy and effective way to bring balance into all aspects of their lives.”

Rachel Robinson, Musician & Teacher


“I encourage all my patients to practice Transcendental Meditation. Experience Shows and research confirms, that it is the best vaccine against stress-related conditions. Regular practice keeps you inwardly settled despite being surrounded by chaos.”

Dr Donn Brennan (MRCGP), General Practitioner.


“Having practised TM and the TM Sidhi Programme for 27 years I find it hard to describe the magnitude of change it has brought to my life other than to say it has changed everything ; in a phrase perhaps it has made me a completely happy and enriched person enjoying all aspects of life.”

Derek Crampton, Businessman
