Posted at my FaceBook art page because the message was more-or-less hitting me in the face. I'm Janet Chui, a watercolour metaphysical and fantasy artist, and this is my online journal for my weird, wonderful, and "woo woo" experiences.

Reading often means gathering information, acquiring new insight and knowledge, and mastering a new field. Friday 3 April, 2009: David Lynch’s press conference is poorly managed and uninformative but well-planned enough – it seems – to achieve its intended effect. The only question suggesting some background knowledge comes from a man in a black fedora with a thick German accent… He wants to know what role Advanced Techniques such as “Yogic Flight” will play in this schoolhouse transcendentalism.
TM was founded by a man known as Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1956 in India, and has since grown worldwide.
Lynch’s goal of “one million children” seems reminiscent of another supernatural claim of TM, the Maharishi Effect: that a certain critical mass of TM meditators can affect change upon the material world. Henning became even more deeply involved with TM following his diagnosis of liver cancer, eventually removing himself from contact with non-TM practitioners. Therapist John Knapp, specializing in the treatment of individuals disentangling themselves from cult-type relationships, claims that he, too, had a cult-like experience with TM.
It was John Knapp who, in response to the David Lynch Foundation’s proposition to introduce TM into public schools, organized a web seminar to draw attention the possible violation of the separation of Church and State such a program suggests.
I received an email from Knapp inviting me to RSVP to the event, after which I tried to help him generate publicity.
Knapp’s opinion, as he explained to me the day after the seminar was to take place, is that any critical scrutiny of TM will prove its undoing. I am General Counsel for the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness Based Education and World Peace. Your website is a fount of false, misleading, biased and entirely negative information on the TM program and the organizations and individuals which teach or have conducted research on that program[1]. I would caution you and your presenters, therefore, to be most prudent concerning the truthfulness and propriety of any statements made by any of them at your web event or thereafter. You will also be held responsible for the continuing publication of falsehoods on your websites and otherwise.
You go on to state that according to one of your presenters, Barry Markovsky, “TM researchers” research is not designed to be sensitive to, and contains no indicators for, negative effects. The next false statement is “Negative effects are not detected in TM research because they are infrequent, and therefore will wash out in a statistical analysis”.
And then you go on to misrepresent that “Most of the research has been paid for and conducted by individuals committed to TM” .The fact is that the research on the TM technique has been conducted at over 200 independent universities and research institutions around the world. The plan is to have meetings where we can chill out, chat, make friends and learn from each other about what is working and what is not working in our practices and in our lives.
Since the separate vegan meetup has recently been disbanded I thought I'd include this as a subsection within this group now.
Internal peace of mind and soul is needed factor in the present life where person has no time to breathe properly.
Meditation can be said as the process to delink the outer world and inner soul and reach the highest level of concentration which is a complete state of mental rest. With continues work our body gets tired physically, so we opt for resting, in the same way meditation is a procedure to give brain rest.
The next stage is of complete aloofness and in Sanskrit termed as Vipashyana, and this is level graver where a person reaches to higher concentration level. These two stages are very important as without achieving the containment at first you can’t proceed to further stage. Meditation can’t be categorized with single technique; it is of different types and implies different techniques.
Choosing the place:The place of meditation plays a key role and to meditate in right technique the first thing is to choose the place which is peaceful, no one can meditate around noise. Concentration:This is the first important technique of meditation where you leave all worries and concentrate on one point. Using point board to concentrate is another known technique for concentration while meditating in which you concentrate on board and then travel into the world of infinity. Proper posture:Though, modern studies do suggest that it is not necessary to cross your legs and sit still posture plays a vital role in meditation. Specified time:Decode your time for meditation because without which you will not be able to communicate well. Meditation is all about, knowing your inner self, exploring the strengths and weakness hidden beneath your skin.
Simple thing is that meditation is about feeling positive and that you can achieve by strengthening your inner being.

I've had the privilege of studying under wonderful teachers, beginning my spiritual journey in Tibetan Buddhism before wandering into Reiki, chakra meditations and other healing traditions. The attending Press are either convinced, or confused and cowed – by the PowerPoint presentation of statistical graphs and PhD presented data. For a full hour, a presentation designed to publicize Lynch’s plan to bring Transcendental Meditation [TM] to “one million children” in public schools across America failed to approach the question of how this ambitious plan would be executed, and nobody thought to ask. Lynch seems coached enough to avoid overtly supernatural claims, but not bright enough to conceal his TM mysticism. We know that TM had once claimed that its practitioners could develop the ability to levitate… they even marketed the school of TM with pictures of lotus-seated students apparently hovering above the ground.
After many years with TM, Knapp found himself far removed from friends and family outside of the organization. As you have intentionally scheduled this event two days prior to the Foundation’s benefit concert at Radio City Music Hall it is clear you have planned it to have a negative impact on that event. The fact is that all the major clinical studies had in place mechanisms for reporting adverse effects. The National Institutes of Health have funded 0ver $20 million for clinical research on the TM technique, which has been conducted at independent universities.
We can suggest books and organisations, people to each other and swap stories and maybe arrange activities.
You don't need to be vegan to attend meetups scheduled as vegan but please try out the vegan food for the occasion (if it's a meal for instance). Meditation is one established way which helps your mind to get peace, it is taken as art of living and many benefit from this art.
Meditation is an ancient Indian art which involves multiple practices and forms which releases the built stress inside you. The benefits of meditation are not only approved by the ancient practitioners but also a scientific approved procedure for peace of brain and also for physical ailments. The meditation works on simple process of cutting down you from all thoughts and then giving you inner peace. You feel lighter when you enter into the first stage of concentration, though surroundings can affect you at this stage. Yoga is one of the most distinguished forms of meditation which is highly useful and effective. So, it is necessary to choose the clean and environment free from all types of noises and sound this will give you and your concentration a boost.
Time plays again a reasonable role because limiting yourself for fewer minutes will not give you results and exceeding too would never give result. To deal with the issue modern men go to psychologists but there is a better way out and meditation is one useful and effective way. Sometimes the times and circumstances make us weak and depressed but with the aid of meditation one can work on it. There is one set of Biblical Meditation Tips that has been included on each day’s page for ease of reference. 31 Bible Verses By Subject Master Collection Volume 1 Daily Scripture Reading and Meditation: 31 Bible Verses on Love - To Remind You - You Are God's Beloved!
The website is also available for Kindle users in UK, Germany, India, Italy, France, Spain and Canada.
Expect talk of energy, co-incidences, past lives, dreams, and beings that "do not" exist--at least, that's what I used to think.
He launches into some unclear rhetoric about TM’s ability to “bring bliss to the atmosphere” and “peace to the Collective Consciousness”. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are the first speakers at the press conference, stammering their way through a speech that they need not have mentioned was unprepared.

We were always in touch…” Randi describes a deeply cultic relationship between Henning and Transcendental Meditation that would destroy Henning’s career and eventually take his life.
He began to harbour doubts about his relationship with TM, which caused for harassing behaviour from some its adherents. Therefore, I wished to give you the courtesy of an advisal that we intend to review the global web presentation of the event carefully for any false, defamatory, tortious, breachful, malicious or otherwise unlawful statements or materials made or published by you or the presenters. No adverse effects have been reported from these studies, even though the data were collected in universities not connected with any TM affiliated university or organization, and the data collection personnel and attending medical personnel  were blind to the group assignment.  Moreover, case histories on individuals at risk or with pre-existing conditions, such as mental health patients, do not support that the TM program has adverse effects. If youa€™re interested in increasing your happiness, health and general quality of life come along for inspiration and support.
It is a form which has a much relevance in present era as the mind is never at peace and where the first thing and last thing in day is worry and stress in such situation with the aid of yoga one achieves internal peace and state of mental satisfaction, which is of utmost importance for human survival. Yoga in Hindu mythology is a celebrated form of meditation which helps human to enrich and experience a different world.
The way you sit while meditating is very necessary.So make sure that daily a routine meditation session is carried out by you which will give you positive and benefits results.
Depression can be of anything from the career oriented problem to the personal life everything can worry you and your mind. You can download and read these ebooks on your computer, mobile phone or tablet with the free Kindle Reading apps. I always thought this was a dryad who sought comfort in the tree roots (whatever those may symbolise), and was subsequently caught and intertwined in them. Maybe I was painting angels, fairies and other beings since childhood because I could "see" them, all this time. It means not simply reading about spiritual things but also reading about spiritual things in a spiritual way. Not only that, but in areas where TM is practiced, Lynch tells us, crime rates, and even car accident rates, have lowered!
Henning’s career as a television magician was compromised as he strove to hire only TM initiates to work on the set. In fact the power of meditation can treat the problems of asthma as breathing is an important thing while carrying out the meditation. So, when you start concentrating, you ultimately get the track of your breathing and slowly and gradually you reach to level of higher concentration and getting aloof from outer thoughts and emotions.
People who stress more always find it difficult to cope with regular situation and hence meditation is a good source to keep them calm and less worried. That requires a willingness not just to read but to be read, not just to master but to be mastered by words. According to Randi, this was not only problematic for the fact that it was difficult to find people within TM who were talented in television production, but “every so often they went in to meditation and work just stopped…” Eventually, TV executives grew weary of Henning’s professional antics. The disillusioned student, Robert Kropinski, and six other people sued Maharishi’s University for $9 million on the grounds of “fraud, neglect, and intentionally inflicting emotional damage”.
In an email to all registered attendants he explained: “Upon reflection, I could not in good conscience expose my co-panelists to possible legal entanglements. In fact there are diseases and health issues which can be solved with the help of meditation.
Meditation is not a problem solver which will solve your problems automatically it just help you to relax and feel calm.
As long as we read the Bible or a spiritual book simply to acquire knowledge, our reading does not help us in our spiritual lives.
Really, it looked quite a lot as one might expect if credulous transcendent hopefuls were merely hopping about on their asses. Paul McCartney is just one of the performers scheduled to play at the next evening’s David Lynch Foundation benefit concert, raising money for the purpose of in-school Transcendentalism. Kropinski stated that none of the promised TM benefits ever surfaced during his time as a student, and he was awarded $138,000 by a Washington D.C.
We can become very knowledgeable about spiritual matters without becoming truly spiritual people.As we read spiritually about spiritual things, we open our hearts to God's voice. Sometimes we must be willing to put down the book we are reading and just listen to what God is saying to us through its words. Kindle books are DRM protected and therefore, unlike ebooks that are in PDF or ePUB format, you cannot read this ebook without the official Kindle apps.
