Welcome into the Genius Lounge, a special audio series with Bob Roth, CEO of the David Lynch Foundation and long-time TM teacher.

Why do we call it Genius Lounge? Researchers have identified key networks of the brain where the creative process occurs. Neuroscientists call one such area the “default mode network.” They also call it the “imagination network” and the “genius lounge.” Innovation gets its start here—and the practice of Transcendental Meditation® helps to accelerate the process by activating the brain’s default mode network, and removing restrictive stress. In each Genius Lounge episode, Bob shares a few minutes of wisdom and inspiration—that connects us back to our own inner genius and the genius that surrounds us in nature.

We invite you to listen to Bob’s talks below.
