Events launch Operation Warrior Wellness & highlight Quiet Time program

High-profile events in New York, San Francisco,
Washington DC, and Los Angeles garnered
support and media coverage for two of
DLF’s most exciting initiatives:

Donna Karan’s Urban
Zen Foundation partners
with DLF to launch
“Operation Warrior
Wellness NYC”

Jerry Yellin

Celebrated fashion designer Donna Karan, hip-hop founder Russell Simmons, and filmmaker David Lynch joined forces to launch “Operation Warrior Wellness NYC” in front of a standing-room only crowd of 500. This program will bring Transcendental Meditation (TM) and integrative therapies to veterans and their families in New York who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The audience was especially moved and inspired by the personal stories of veterans from each generation—World War II, Vietnam, and Iraq—who’d transformed their lives through TM, healing mind and body.
