Cary Bayer Returns to Sarasota
Cary Bayer, the longtime former teacher of Transcendental Meditation and TM teacher trainer who founded Higher Self Healing Meditation and has worked with Oscar-winners Alan Arkin and Pietro Scalia, Emmywinner Judy Henderson, comedian David Steinberg, and Quality Inns, will present a pair of classes at Rosemary Court Yoga, 810 Central Avenue in Sarasota.
The first class, “The Beatles, Transcendence, & Meditation,” will be held on Thursday October 31, from 7pm to 9pm. The second class, “Follow Your Yellow Brick Road: Awakening Courage, Compassion, & Inner Knowing for your Journey Home,” will be held on Friday November 1, from 10:30am to 12:30pm.
The Beatles program features an integrated balance of listening to several Beatles’ songs about transcendence and meditation, and a discussion about their meaning, with a talk on how to experience the same transcendence that the Fab Four sang about so beautifully. Bayer, author of Meditations on Enlightenment, also teaches a breath meditation that the band members practiced, and gives a simulated experience of the meditation, as well.
Bayer will teach techniques to awaken courage, compassion, and inner knowing in the Follow Your Yellow Brick Road class. These qualities were respectively sought by the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow, and are vital for the inner journey we walk in life. The workshop also shows how to make peace with the so-called Shadow, embodied by the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz. Finally, it provides tips on how to find one’s own Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, more commonly appearing as a helpful guide-like a therapist, coach or guru.
