Free Advanced Monthly Meditation Webinar

The advanced meditation webinars, held for those who meditate, start with me opening the “floor” to questions about your meditation practice and/or understanding of the path of evolution of consciousness. Then, I’ll do a group meditation check. After that, I’ll direct you to a link for a talk by Maharishi, which each meditator can play on his or her computer. Lastly, I’ll take questions, and lead a discussion about the video.
Here’s the dial-in number for it:

(712) 432-0075

You’ll then be asked for a participant code,

which is 370690 and the pound sign (#).

If you’re in front of a computer, when the time is right you can watch the video that we’ll discuss afterwards.  Here’s the link to that video.

The September/October schedule follows below:

Thursday August 11 @ 7 PM “Sat, Chit, Ananda,” 14:22

Thursday September 8 @ 7 PM “Yoga & TM,” 4:46


Thursday October 20 @ 7 PM

“Taste of Pudding is in Eating: The Test of Enlightenment,” 7:17

Advanced Meditation Technique Available

The basic course in Higher Self Healing Meditation is easy to learn and even easier to practice; so, too, are advanced techniques, which you can learn, that accelerate your practice. The second technique, for example, expands the benefits of your daily meditation by opening awareness to the most refined levels of inner silence. Think of it as a fertilizer to speed up your growth. This second technique also improves the mind’s ability to cognize thought at more refined levels so that action can be strengthened, increasing your ability to achieve your goals, and thereby grow in fulfillment. This happens naturally and leads to improvements in all areas of life–physical, mental, and spiritual.
Once you’ve practiced meditation for at least a year, you’re ready to learn your next technique. The cost for this advanced method is half of the cost of the first: $250. What’s more, it can also be learned via Skype and a webcam.
If you’d like to enjoy the benefits that the second technique provides, email me at or call (845) 664-1883.

Meditation Retreats

A number of meditators have expressed interest in deepening their experience with meditation. Toward that end, I created a one-day retreat called

“A Retreat into Peace, an Advance in Knowledge.”

It provides a day of profound rest, renewal, and healing, in which you get a chance to take another big step toward Enlightenment. Instead of your usual twice-a-day daily meditations, you’ll get to meditate and rest for four hours in a safe and appropriate environment. The deeper experience is complemented by profound knowledge through videos and discussion. What follows is a quote from a meditator who’s hosted many such retreats.

The next scheduled retreats are listed below.

New York

“I have found that meditation reduces my stress, and increases my energy, focus, and capacity for joy. Attending a full-day meditation retreat is always a day of profound rest and renewal. It is hard to describe the feelings of deep peace and contentment that follow the experience. Thank you Cary for making it all possible.”

Column: Do you Gamble on your Happiness?

People gamble on lotteries, on slot machines, on football games.   Rarely, do you hear someone gamble on happiness. And yet, every day most people actually do gamble on their own happiness.


Most people derive happiness based on what happens that day. If they get a massage, a new client or a raise at work, or their child or grandchild gets a prize they’ll be happy. Conversely, if they lose at tennis, lose a client or a possible promotion at work, or their child or grandchild gets sick they’ll be unhappy. Said differently, their happiness is a function of what happens to them and those they care about. It’s outer-dependent and usually out of their control. Hence, my expression “gambling on their happiness.” Like a roulette wheel, if it shows up red they lose, if it shows up black they win. It’s a tough way to live.

The good news is that there’s a deeper happiness that’s inner-dependent, and even better news is that it’s possible to


A) connect to that happiness daily

B) to live from that state, as well.


Outer-dependent happiness comes about through the senses, your arms, legs and the rest of your body. Inner-dependent happiness doesn’t involve them, and arises when they’re completely at rest. The yogis of India call this inner happiness Ananda, Sanskrit for bliss. Ananda exists in abundance–infinite in fact–at the deepest level of your mind, where your individuality and your universality meet.


Meditation is the primary path to this concentrated happiness; the yogis of India call this brief experience of the inner Self Samadhi, which translates from the Sanskrit as “steady mind.” In other words, when the mind is steadiest, when it comes to rest and your conscious mind becomes consciousness, no longer aware of any thing in particular but awake within itself, Samadhi is achieved. Even the word “achieved” is a misnomer, because Samadhi isn’t something you can achieve like writing a book, cooking a meal, or even walking to the mailbox. It’s a state of Being, beyond the doing of your everyday actions, beyond the perceptions of your five senses, and beyond the thoughts of your thinking mind. It’s a fourth state of consciousness, as distinct from waking, dreaming, and sleeping, as each of them is from each other.
This is the knowledge elucidated by the yogis, and I can vouch for it from my own personal experience of having meditated since the age of 17 and taught Transcendental Meditation since three years after that until 2010 when I began teaching Higher Self Healing Meditation.
A fleeting experience of Samadhi that lasts for maybe a second or two or a minute or more brings a concentrated download of happiness into your mind. So when you come out of meditation your mind is infused with this happy state, making it so much easier to derive happiness out of the simplest things that you may see or do immediately afterwards. In an hour or so, almost all of that happiness fades out of consciousness; that’s not a bad thing, per se, it’s just the way of things. A little of it, however, still remains.


Regular exposure to the experience of Being within enables more and more of this precious bliss to habituate itself into the nature of your mind. Over the course of years of such exposure, the individual mind becomes saturated with that happiness; in fact, the mind comes to live in a state of happiness. The yogis of India have a name for this as well: Moksha, or liberation. In English, we call this Self-Realization, when you have come to identify yourself as both an individual being, who the world knows you as, and one with the Universal Being. This state of Enlightenment enables you to bring a truckload of happiness with you wherever you go and to whatever you do. This makes the activity of outer-dependent happiness, of course, much easier to achieve. In the Emerald City in The Wizard of Oz everyone wore green glasses, so that everything appeared to be green. When you wear happiness glasses, it’s awfully hard not to see happiness. Your gambling on happiness has ended.

All New Transcendental Coaching Launched

As many of you know, two of the greatest passions in my career are teaching meditation and coaching. And now the two have come together in a brand new method. Let me explain.
The Higher Self Healing Meditation that I founded in 2010, after teaching Transcendental Meditation for decades and training dozens of its teachers, can give you the experience of the Transcendent, the inner Being within you. When you combine the experience of the Transcendent with an advanced form of coaching you get my newest offering-Transcendental Coaching.
What makes Transcendental Coaching unique is that it draws upon mankind’s ancient timeless wisdom-from the Hebrews, Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, the Vedas of India, and the native Americans of our own continent–to help coach you into the life that you were truly born to live. It incorporates deep knowledge of the way that the Universe operates, so that your life can flow in tune with the Laws of Nature. Enjoy clarity for your mind, purity for your heart, prosperity for your net worth, and spirituality for your soul. It takes into account the knowledge of Karma, the knowledge of Dharma (action in accordance with Cosmic Law), the knowledge of clearly defined higher states of consciousness, and an understanding of the nature of Enlightenment itself. This helps bring your life increasingly in tune with Nature, and to live in freedom.
The result of this attunement is more frequent experience of synchronicities (being in the right place at the right time), less struggle, less resistance to the fulfillment of your desires, and an overall greater sense of your life as a delightful flow.

The prerequisites for Transcendental Coaching are the 3-day training in Higher Self Healing Meditation, and 10 hour-long coaching sessions.

Meditation Training Available by Skype & Webcam

When I taught Transcendental Meditation for several decades, I could only teach it in person. But since founding Higher Self Healing Meditation in 2010, I’m happy to say that the training is now available from a distance if you have a webcam on your computer. Let me know if you’d like to take advantage of this valuable stress-reducing method, even if you live far from my homes in upstate New York and south Florida.

Want to Make Money from Meditation?

When I ran my own marketing/PR firm, I loved thanking anyone who referred a new client to me, by sending a check for 10 percent of the fees generated. I have a similar policy as a meditation teacher. If you inspire someone to become my student, you’ll receive 10 percent of the course fee. That means a check for you of $50 for caring enough about the people in your life that you’d like them to live with more freedom from stress. It’s my way of saying, “thanks.” My thought is simple–who couldn’t use a piece of unexpected income?

I also give you 20 percent of the revenues for any meditation course that you produce or sponsor for me. Sponsoring means finding a time and space for the free introductory lecture and the three days of hour-and-a half classes-it could be your own living room, if you like-and it can also be held on the Internet as a webinar.   I would email you a flyer for the lecture, which you’d then email to the people in your life.   If five people learn to meditate, for example, you would enjoy $500 for your work.

Face to Face to Facebook

With the Internet being a much faster means of transport than the Interstate highways that I find myself on each month, the World Wide Web is, like rock ‘n’ roll, here to stay, and presumably, also will never die. That being the case, I’ve recently created a page on Facebook that can help you understand the knowledge behind meditation. The page is called:


Higher Self Healing Meditation
So check your Facebook wall and let me know what you think about my posts.

By the way, if you’re not yet a fan of either page, you can join up easily at either of the addresses above.

New Humor Mini-Book: Lampoons for a New Millennium




In what seems like a previous lifetime I was a satirist: a columnist for the National Lampoon, a joke writer for a

New York City radio disc jockey, a screenwriter on a film that got produced, and co-writer/co-producer of “Don’t Touch that Dial.” a sketch comedy show off-Broadway. As my consciousness turned further inward, however, I began to teach meditation more frequently and lead personal growth workshops, and eventually became a life coach in 2001. As a result, I put humor writing aside. But you can’t keep good things down: they have a way of coming back. In 2014, I started writing humor again, and just completed a collection of some of those playful humor pieces under the title Lampoons for a New Millennium. I hope these 10 casuals bring you some laughs. They’re much needed in this new millennium.

Field of Dreams & The Field of All Possibilities

Every April, the eyes of baseball fans turn to their national pastime as hope springs eternal in their hearts. As they dream of pennant races, I slip a DVD into my DVR and watch Field of Dreams for the umpteenth April. To me, it’s the ultimate baseball and metaphysical movie.

When I was pursuing my Masters degree at Maharishi International University in Fairfield, Iowa, its founder, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, spoke of his dream of creating Heaven on Earth. A few years later, W.P. Kinsella turned Iowa into Heaven–at least an Iowa farmland into Heaven for deceased baseball players–in his novel, Shoeless Joe. Director Phil Alden Robinson adapted it for the screenplay for Field of Dreams, making us laugh, cry, and imagine big thoughts of Eternity. He also avoided being corny, no mean feat when you’re surrounded by so much corn.

The film’s field of dreams is akin to the pure field of Creative Intelligence that Maharishi described as a field of all possibilities. Possibilities–at least of immortality for dead ballplayers–plays a central role in this film. The ball field was also a place for a novelist (J.D. Salinger in the book, the fictitious Terence Mann in the movie) to discover immortality, and maybe write about it after years of pain and publishing silence.

 “We’re dealing with primal forces of nature here,” Ray Kinsella (played so sincerely by Kevin Costner) tells his wife Annie. We’re dealing with the field from where all of Nature’s forces are structured, is how Maharishi would have put it. Ray quotes Mann to the novelist himself: “the universe opens itself up for a few seconds to show you what’s possible.” Those practicing Maharishi’s meditation, or the Higher Self Healing Meditation that I teach, have experienced that in the deepest part of their mind is the Transcendent field of pure potential which opens up for a few seconds in meditation to show them the Infinite, and what indeed is a possible state of consciousness to live from forever.

Meditating physicists have said that Maharishi’s field of Creative Intelligence sounds like the quantum field. Each is described as a field out of which all things manifest: baseball players in the film, and all of life in Maharishi’s teachings. In meditation, the meditator experiences that things (perceptions, thoughts, the mantra itself) also vanish into that field. In the film, ballplayers do the same into the cornfield beyond their field of dreams.

If You Build it He’ll Come

This is the message from a voice that Ray hears in the movie. In time he interprets it to mean build a baseball field. After he does, players come first to practice, and then to play full games like schoolboys on an endless summer day.

The movie is also about innocence, and the vision of eternity that comes to all those with a childlike spirit. Ray, his wife, and young daughter all see these baseball ghosts, but his commerce-obsessed brother-in-law is blind to them, and thinks Ray is a fool for mowing down a cornfield and its lucrative crop to build a baseball stadium that nobody uses. Mann convinces Ray not to sell the farm because people will have a desire to flock to this mystical baseball field, even though they don’t know why–to presumably find the answer to their dreams, as well.

Jesus said that we enter Heaven only when we become innocent, like children. Even Frank Sinatra sang, “Fairy tales can come true/They can happen to you/If you’re young at heart.” Former hippies and Berkeley grads, Ray and Annie are young at heart, and follow their dreams, and it leads to athletic immortality for the heroes of his fan’s heart, and reunion and completion with his own father.   The Voice told Ray that if he builds it he would come; all along we think that the he in question is Shoeless Joe Jackson, his father’s hero. Only at the end do we realize that it’s not just his father’s hero, but Ray’s late father himself who he was estranged from, who comes. By the tearful ending, Ray’s father has become his hero, as well.

We’re here to make that dream of yours come true.

Higher Self Healing Meditation

I’m proud to announce the development of a new meditation training that’s been

marinating in the quietest levels of consciousness deep within my soul for a number of years.  Its name is Higher Self Healing Meditation, and it’s as effortless as Transcendental Meditation (TM) that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi trained me to teach when I was 20 years old.

Some years back, the movement that teaches the late Maharishi’s system of TM significantly changed the requirements for those who had been teaching to continue to do so. As a result, thousands of others, including myself, no longer instruct that method. But understanding the mechanics of how the mind transcends in meditation after teaching meditation to so many hundreds of people from southern California and Western Europe to the Caribbean and many points in between-as well as training dozens of teachers of Transcendental Meditation–I’ve developed a system of meditation that’s as effective as TM, as easy as TM, and available at one third the price that it costs to learn TM.

Have you thought about incorporating a daily stress-management system to:

release deep-rooted tension,

increase energy,

stimulate creativity,

enliven happiness, and

enable you to contact the inexhaustible reservoir of creativity and intelligence deep within you at the transcendental level of Being?

If so, let me know, and I can explain how easy it is to learn over the course of five hours in three consecutive days. You can reach me by email at or by phone at (845) 679-5526.
