The documentary, School of thought is a mysterious and amazing adventure into the Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment with Academy Award-nominee, David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks and The Elephant Man).

David brings along a few friends to Fairfield, including Beatles collaborator, Donovan (Mellow Yellow, Hurdy Gurdy Man and Sunshine Superman) and the world-renowned quantum physicist, John Hagelin (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 which typically manifests itself in young people through drug abuse and violence, often in fatal ways.
