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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call (845) 664-1883.
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.
Monday August 29 in New Paltz at a private home from 9:30 AM-5:30 PM. Investment: $75. Contact: Cary Bayer (845) 664-1883.
Saturday October 15 in Jacksonville at a private home from 9:30 AM-5:30 PM. Investment: $75.
Contact: Cary Bayer (845) 664-1883.
“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.
