May is National Meditation month, and that seems to be the topic on everyone’s mind.
On the Money reports that supermodel Gisele Bundchen told a crowd at the David Lynch Foundation’s Women of Vision Humanitarian Awards that she meditates whenever she can, even in the back seat of a New York City taxi.
Robin Roberts, a co-anchor of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” also told emcee Rosanna Scotto that she now gets up at 3:15 a.m. instead of 4 a.m. — to meditate. Her co-host George Stephanopoulos also practices transcendental meditation, or TM.
Roberts and Bundchen were among the honorees at the awards dinner.
Meditation may even have helped actor Leonardo DiCaprio win his first Oscar — a prize that had long eluded him — as he meditated with Montreal-based expert Lynne Goldberg while he was filming “The Revenant” in Calgary.
Goldberg is in town to spread the meditation mantra — and her app, OMG. I Can Meditate!
While the transcendental meditation taught through the Lynch Foundation, which also uses meditation as a tool to help veterans and victims of sexual and domestic abuse, touts 20 minutes twice a day, Goldberg has an app for 1-, 2- and 5-minute meditation options.
