Actress Cameron Diaz is interviewed by David Lynch Foundation Executive Director Bob Roth on her personal practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique.
Bob Roth: “Why did you decide to learn Transcendental Meditation? What was it in your life at that time that you thought ‘this would be something good for me’?”
Cameron Diaz: “I would try meditation because I knew there was something there for me, but every time I would try to do it, I was incapable. One day, my girlfriend Jessica Seinfeld said to me “You are going to learn to meditate. You better be ready!”
Cameron Diaz: “So I learned and it was exactly what I needed. The thing that blew me away the most about it was that it was the easiest thing I’ve ever done – not the easiest meditation, but the easiest thing I have ever learned. I learn a lot of things; that’s my job! I’ll spend months learning something. And this took me an hour the first time; it’s also what you get out of it.”
Cameron Diaz: “The fact that it’s so simple to learn. It’s so simple to practice. And, yet the amount of restoration that comes to you – the benefit across your life – it has changed everything.”
