Consciousness meets creativity at the David Lynch Graduate School of Cinematic Arts.

Over the course of two years – four semesters online plus five intensive nine-day residencies (four held in beautiful Fairfield, Iowa, and one in Los Angeles) – students gain the skills and contacts they need to succeed as professional screenwriters while also discovering how to use TM to dive deeper into the creative process.
