I have a confession: I could watch English comedian, actor, and author Russell Brand speak all day long… He’s witty, honest, brilliant and a very genuine person.

Over the past 20 months, Russell has shown his deep support for the David Lynch Foundation and our programs. Even as his fame has sky-rocketed in the last two years, he has managed to stay personable, down-to-earth, and available to help with some of our biggest initiatives.

Last month, Russell took part in our press conference launching Operation Warrior Wellness—an initiative to help veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) learn to meditate. He described how the Transcendental Meditation program helped him change his lifestyle and experience a “deeper state of happiness which is very profound and absolute.”

Below is a video of Russell’s talk at our press conference. I thought I was a fan of Russell’s before, but his continued support with our programs has made me grow to love him so much more!
