Cary Bayer – longtime former teacher of Transcendental Meditation (TM), TM teacher-trainer who founded Higher Self Healing Meditation in 2010, and life coach who’s worked with Oscar-winners Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine) and Pietro Scalia (JFK, Black Hawk Down), Emmy-winners comedian David Steinberg (Academy Awards presentations) and Judy Henderson (Homeland) and Quality Inns – will present Beatles Yoga on November 9, from 6-8:30 p.m., at Loving Light Yoga. The cost is $25 when paid by November 5, and $35 after that date.
In this Beatles’ class, students listen to several songs about meditation, discuss their meaning then and about how to experience the same transcendence that the “Fab Four” sang about. The author of Beatles Yoga then teaches a breath meditation that the band practiced and gives a simulated experience of the meditation as well. “The Beatles played a major role in shaping world culture,” says Bayer. “They also expanded consciousness, especially with meditation and their retreat at Maharishi’s India ashram.
Meditation is Effortless
Bayer says that HSHM, inspired by teaching TM to hundreds of people from California to Australia for three decades, enables a person to connect to, what the Beatles sang as the “life (that) flows on within you and without you.” HSHM is as “easy as TM, effective as TM, and at a third of the price,” he says.
HSHM holistically enriches the body (better health, sleep, sex, energy) mind (greater clarity, memory, learning ability, concentration), heart (enriched personal relationships, ability to love) and spirit (higher consciousness).
HSHM is practiced twice a day for 20 minutes, during which time the body gains profound rest – deeper than at the deepest point in a night’s sleep – while remaining alert with increased coherence between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. “It’s effortless,” Bayer says, “because it’s carried out by the same Intelligence that beats your heart, breathes for you and shifts your states of consciousness from waking to sleeping to dreaming.” It produces a fourth state of awareness, whereby the higher Self is experienced as pure being. The experience inspires creativity, releases enormous stress and is blissful.
Anyone can learn HSHM because it requires only the ability to think a thought, then takes the awareness to the source of thought at the deepest level of the mind. In addition, it involves no concentration or control of mind, no contemplation, no change of diet, belief system, philosophy or religion.
