Children of the Night is dedicated to assisting children between the ages of 11 and 17 who are forced to prostitute on the streets for food to eat and a place to sleep. The shelter provides a highly structured program including an on-site school, counseling, recreational activities, and the support needed to help each resident achieve his or her goals and “life plan.” The David Lynch Foundation teamed up with Children of the Night to provide the opportunity for residents to learn Transcendental Meditation to help them overcome the deep stress and and trauma of their past and move forward with their lives.

In this video, several of the girls open up about what life was like for them on the street and their experience practicing Transcendental Meditation. Founder of Children of the Night, Dr Lois Lee, also talks about the incredible change she sees taking place in these girls as they begin to wake up from their nightmares.
