Watch the Surf’s Up Studios documentary film, Peace Rising for free. The movie features Academy Award-nominated director David Lynch (Twin Peaks, The Elephant Man), quantum physicist John Hagelin (What The Bleep Do We Know) and Grammy Award winner, Donovan (Mellow Yellow, Sunshine Superman).
When I visited the small town of Fairfield, Iowa to film a documentary about the town’s meditation practices, I had no idea it would lead me to the filmmaker, David Lynch and through him, travel on to New York’s Radio City Music Hall where I met with Paul McCartney, Moby, Ringo Starr, Mike Love and other celebrities who are helping David in his mission to have children meditate across the planet for healthier, stress-free lives – along with having much less violence, drugs and bullying in schools.
Peace Rising takes you inside the huge meditation domes where most Fairfield residents meditate twice a day. You’ll also get exclusive footage inside the Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment where students of all ages meditate in various ways through a consciousness-based educational platform. Students from Fairfield consistently lead the state in academics and sports.
Peace Rising is the winner of numerous industry awards including best documentary at the Santa Fe International Film Festival where acclaimed actress, Ali McGraw said, “Peace Rising is a wonderful film highlighting David Lynch’s work and the many health benefits of meditation.”
When Oprah Winfrey saw Peace Rising, she was so enthralled by the town of Fairfield that she produced a TV special on the community and included clips from Peace Rising within it.
