Summary, etc.:
School of Thought is a mysterious and amazing documentary about the Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield, Iowa, with Academy Award-nominee David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks and The Elephant Man).David brings a few friends along to Fairfield, including folk-musician Donovan (Mellow Yellow, Hurdy Gurdy Man and Sunshine Superman) and the world-renowned quantum physicist John Hagelin (featured in What The Bleep Do We Know!?).Together, these three peacemakers are touring the world with their mind-blowing solution to creating harmonious schools and world peace. Their answer: Have every student in every school practice Transcendental Meditation twice a day and watch them quickly become happier, healthier and more focused, thereby dissolving the life-threatening stress that typically manifests itself in young people through drug abuse and violence, often in fatal ways.
