Dorothy Rowe was clairvoyant as a child, but a rough teenage period caused her abilities to wane. After learning Transcendental Meditation in her mid-teens, the inner vision began to return. She moved to Fairfield, Iowa in 1980 and devoted herself to creating world peace by meditating with a large group of people practicing the TM and TM-Sidhi Program. She became a teacher of Transcendental Meditation in 1986. She taught Transcendental Meditation and raised a family, while also teaching dance and music.

Then in early 2008, she underwent a transformation. The change in awareness happened quite suddenly, but it took months for Dorothy to realize that this opening of awareness was to be used for healing. Quietly, she healed herself and others, without sharing her experiences. In 2012, Dorothy was invited to do some healing work for compensation. By word of mouth only, her practice has grown. She now has clients on four continents.

She currently offers private consultations by phone and Skype and Distance Energy Work sessions through her website, http://distanceenergywork.com. The website also offers free resources on energy healing. You can also find her at her YouTube channel, Distance Energy Work.

Karen Henson Jones was on the conventional path to success in the corporate world when a sudden cardiac event at the age of 30 took her to the brink of death.

With warmth, wonder, and wit, Heart of Miracles takes us with her on an inspirational journey through India, Italy, Bhutan, and the Holy Land of Israel in search of a more meaningful life. Exploring the power of meditation, Western medical science, the transformative doctrines of reincarnation, and the teachings of Jesus, Karen encourages us to embrace the full possibilities of our spiritual selves.

A discussion about not confusing a blank state of mind with the presence of Awareness.

Light Upon Light is a book to touch the heart, and awaken the spirit. It takes the lives of some of the great spiritual masters of the last millennium, from Rumi, to twentieth century saint Darshan Singh, and illuminates their inner quests.

More than simply biography, Light Upon Light delves into their perceptions of the world, the innermost workings of their minds, and the life incidents that led them to enlightenment. In this sense Light Upon Light is not about the spiritual path; it is designed to take the reader and carry them into the spiritual path, and perceive the wisdom of the masters from within.

While author Andrew Vidich PhD has exemplary academic credentials, he writes from the heart, and calls the reader to a direct experience, a “felt sense” of the core of these masters’ teachings. He also emphasizes meditation as the universal constant taught by all masters, and has provocative exercises in each chapter to stimulate self-reflection, contemplation, and to give the reader experience of practical meditation techniques. This is a book to be treasured by both long-time spiritual students, and those new to the great masters of the path.

Dr. Andrew Vidich is an author, educator, international speaker, and editor of more than five books. His books include Love is a Secret (1990), critically acclaimed by the Institute of Noetic Sciences which stated that “it provided a great service to readers interested in the deeper dimensions of mystical love.” He has co-edited a collection of writings of the twentieth century Spiritual Saint, Sant Kirpal Singh Ji entitled, The Spiritual Path: An Anthology of the Writings by Sant Kirpal Singh. He co-authored The Heart of the Healer, an investigation into the nature of healing (1987). The Sufi Method of Self-Transformation, in Classical Islam excerpted sections (Islamic Supreme Council Press) and contributor to The Heart of Healing, edited by Dawson Church, (Elite Books).

Most recently he has authored Light upon Light: 5 Master Pathways to Awaken the Mindful Self. (Elite Books). Dr. Vidich has been an adjunct assistant professor of religion at Manhattan College in Riverdale NY and at Iona College in New Rochelle where he has taught courses in the nature and experience of religion, meditation, death and dying and Islamic studies. He is also a Literacy Coach, and Senior Advisor at Repertory High School for the Theatre Arts in New York City.

Dr. Vidich holds degrees in music (B.A.) Comparative Mythology and Religion, (M.A.) Education (M.S.) and a Ph.D. in Religion from Bernelli International Graduate School (2000).

Dr. Vidich is a member of the board of directors of the Science of Spirituality Meditation Center, Public Relations Coordinator and chair of the Programming Committee in Amityville New York. He has been studying meditation for 35 years under the guidance of three world renowned Meditation Masters including His Holiness Sant Kirpal Singh Ji, Sant Darshan Singh Ji, acclaimed mystic poet and currently studies under the guidance of His Holiness Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj a world renowned Spiritual Master and head of Science of Spirituality.

“No matter what your religion is – no matter what nationality – no matter what walk of life – if you are a human being, get this book – read it – get inspired by it – and act upon it – right away!” - David Lynch, filmmaker, television director, artist, and author of Catching the Big Fish

Throughout history, great men and women have described exalted experiences of extraordinary wakefulness, freedom, and bliss – as different from our ordinary waking experience as waking is from dreaming. Laozi, Plato, Rūmī, St. Teresa of Avila, Emerson, Emily Dickinson, Black Elk, Einstein – people of all times and places have described experiences that rank among the most inspiring in all of literature.
The Supreme Awakening:
• brings together a rich and diverse collection of these experiences
• explains these experiences in terms of a new, expanded framework of human development – the model of higher states of consciousness developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the renowned Vedic sage and scientist of consciousness
• shows how anyone can systematically cultivate these experiences through the Transcendental Meditation technique – simply, naturally, and effortlessly
• describes the wide-ranging benefits of cultivating enlightenment by means of the TM technique – inner peace and happiness, improved health, increased creativity and intelligence, improved productivity, and much more – with benefits for education, business, health care, the military, rehabilitation, and society as a whole
• shows that the sublime experiences reported by great people across time are real, universal, understandable in terms of modern science – and now available to anyone.

The Supreme Awakening

Throughout history, great men and women have described exalted experiences of extraordinary wakefulness, freedom, and bliss — as different from our ordinary waking experience as waking is from dreaming. Laozi, Plato, Rūmī, St. Teresa of Avila, Emerson, Emily Dickinson, Black Elk, Einstein — people of all times and places have described experiences that rank among the most inspiring in all of literature.

The Supreme Awakening offers a rich collection of these experiences — and shows how ordinary men and women today are enjoying the same kinds of sublime experiences celebrated by the Buddha, Wordsworth, Thoreau, Lucy Maud Montgomery, and many others — simply by practicing the effortless technique of Transcendental Meditation.

Drawing on the work of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, The Supreme Awakening explains how these experiences arise and provides a systematic way of categorizing them.

Also it describes a practical method — the effortless technique of Transcendental Meditation — that anyone can use to cultivate these remarkable experiences and enjoy the unparalleled benefits.

Finally, the book shows the immense practical benefits, for every area of life, of cultivating enlightenment.

Interview by LINDA EGENES View Here


In part one of this new interview series, Changing the World From Within, Eckhart Tolle speaks to Suza Scalora about the violence in our world — and how human beings can lose their sense of humanity and empathy, inflicting suffering on one another.

Suza Scalora: We are constantly hearing about a world that is violent, chaotic and frightening. It seems as though we’re inundated with painful, horrific stories by way of the Internet, newspapers and other media outlets. The newest headline, for example, was about another possible beheading by the terrorist group, ISIS. How can we find inner peace with all this insanity around us?

Eckhart Tolle: There are many aspects to this. It is important to realize that a large percentage of what we hear or see on the news focuses on those places where there is violent conflict. These tend to be the more unconscious pockets of the planet, where there is still a considerable degree of collective unconsciousness.

SS: Can you explain what you mean when you say, “unconsciousness?”

ET: It is important to understand that when I call a person “unconscious,” I am not referring to somebody who has fainted or blacked out. I am referring to someone who is spiritually unconscious. This is to say that the person is completely in the grip of their ego — their false sense of self. The ego gives rise to a sense of separateness between oneself and others, or between “us” and “them.” A human being in the grip of the ego is identified with mental images or ideas about who they are. The mind creates these mental images, or stories. Then a person’s identity, their sense of who they are, is defined through those images or stories. When this happens, there is a tendency for the egoic person to compulsively judge others, thereby making them into enemies. The ego does this to strengthen its ultimately fictitious sense of self. Whatever a person thinks or believes is, of course, conditioned by the past: their upbringing, the culture they live in — including the collective belief systems of that culture — their education, family background and so on. A person who is in the grip of the ego is totally identified with the conditioned content of their mind.

Such a person’s thinking, as well as behavior, is therefore completely determined by the ego. This is what I mean by the term “unconscious.”

SS: It seems that our Western culture is gripped by the ego as much as other parts of the world. Could you explain what it means for a pocket of the world to be more unconscious than another? What does it mean to be collectively unconscious?

ET: In the West, as well as some other parts of the world, the personal sense of ego tends to predominate, whereas in other areas there is a more collective sense of ego. This collective ego emphasizes the “we” rather than the “I.” The collective ego may be tribal, religious, nationalistic, or ideological. For example, there may be a religious or political belief structure that people identify with in the collective that makes up a large part of a person’s sense of self or identity. It is less these days than it was in the 20th century, when millions of people were in the grip of collective belief systems. For example, when Mao Tse-tung was in power in China, millions of people were totally conditioned by their collective belief system. This was also the case with Nazi Germany and Soviet Communism. When people are so identified with their collective belief system, their ego becomes enormously pronounced. This collective ego begins looking for “enemies” in order to strengthen the sense of separateness on which the ego depends for its survival.

The personal ego already has a strong element of dysfunction, but the collective ego is, frequently, even more dysfunctional, to the point of absolute insanity. The greatest atrocities that have been committed on the planet were perpetrated by the collective ego. For example, if you go back to the Middle Ages, during the Inquisition, it was a time in which torture and persecution was enacted in the name of religion. The Christian message was completely misunderstood and so the religion became an egoic mind structure. People committed atrocities because their entire sense of self was bound up with that belief structure. Even worse things, of course, happened in the 20th century — as we all know.

SS: How does one become that detached from their humanity? How do people get caught up in this collective mindset?

ET: When people get taken over by the ego to such an extent, there is nothing else in their mind except the ego. They can no longer feel or sense their humanity — what they share with other human beings, or even with other life forms on the planet. They are so identified with concepts in their minds that other human beings become concepts as well. This causes a sense of separateness, on which the ego thrives.

If you are an Islamic Extremist, for example, you view others as infidels who do not share your belief system and so they are pronounced ‘evil.’ You can no longer sense the humanity, or Beingness, of those who don’t share your belief system. Once you have conceptualized a person, violence becomes almost inevitable. This is because you are not seeing them as a human being anymore. It becomes impossible for you to have any kind of empathy with another individual who does not fit into your collective mind structure.

We often ask, “How is it possible that human beings can inflict such suffering on their fellow humans?” The answer is that they are totally in the grip of the ego. The ego’s complete inability to have empathy for others explains how such atrocities can be committed on the planet. Jesus on the cross is reported to have said, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” In contemporary terminology, he probably would have said, “Forgive them, for they are completely unconscious.”

Enlightenment is intimacy with all things says Suzuki Roshi. Mindfullness is key to intimacy. This moment-to-moment way of being can deepen and expand intimacy, intro-, inter- and transpersonally. However, it can also be used as a way to distance, dissociate and detach, actually dampening our contact with the world instead of enlivening it. This presentation explores the promises and perils of mindfulness, weaving together image, metaphor, science and practice.

by Deepak Chopra: I last sat with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi more than 10 years ago. He left an indelible impression, as he did on everyone. His extraordinary qualities are known to the world. Without him, it’s fair to say, the West would not have learned to meditate.

During the Cold War era a reporter once challenged him by saying, “If anything is possible, as you claim, can you go to the Soviet Union tomorrow with your message?” Without hesitation, Maharishi calmly replied, “I could if I wanted to”. Eventually he did want to, and meditation arrived in Moscow several years before the Berlin Wall fell.

In his belief that world peace depended entirely on rising consciousness, Maharishi was unshakable. The Bhagavad Gita declares that there are no outward signs of enlightenment.

The point is underscored in many Indian fables and scriptures, which often take the form of a high-caste worthy snubbing an untouchable, only to find that the untouchable was actually a god in disguise. For his part, Maharishi had three guises, and perhaps in the end they were also disguises. He was an Indian, a guru and a personality.

His personality was highly quixotic. Over the 50 years of his public life, Maharishi never lost his charm and lovability. He had these qualities to such an extent that westerners took him to be a perfect example of how enlightenment looks – kind, sociable, all-accepting, and light-hearted – when that is far from the case.

His presence was more mysterious than good humour can account for: you could feel it before entering a room. But if you were around him long enough, the older Maharishi in particular could be nettlesome and self-centred; he could get angry and dismissive. He was quick to assert his authority and yet could turn disarmingly child-like in the blink of an eye.

The Maharishi, who was an Indian, felt most comfortable around other Indians with whom he chatted about familiar things in Hindi. He adhered to the vows of poverty and celibacy that belonged to his order of monks, despite the fact that he lived in luxury and amassed considerable wealth for the TM movement.

What gets overlooked is that he viewed wealth as a means to raise the prestige of India in the materialistic West. Maharishi was deeply concerned that he might be the last embodiment of a sacred tradition that was quickly being overwhelmed by modernisation. These two Maharishis are the only ones that the outside world knew.

If you came under the power of his consciousness, however, Maharishi the guru completely overshadowed every other aspect. Nothing could be farther from the truth in Maharishi’s case.

He was venerated by the venerable and considered holy by the holy. His capacity to explain Vedanta was unrivalled, and if he accomplished nothing else in his long life, his commentary on the Bhagavad Gita insures his lasting name.

I was commissioned around 1990 to write a book about him. But even after spending hundreds of days in his presence, one could not capture him, either on paper or in one’s mind.

The enlightened person ceases to be a person and attains a connection to pure consciousness that erases all boundaries. My deepest gratitude goes to Maharishi for showing me that this state of unity exists outside folk tales, temples, organised religion and scripture.

A 30 Day Course on Self-realization

Introduction

Are you one of the increasing number of people who is thinking about enlightenment, or who actually would like to be enlightened? Then this course is especially made for you! Even if you are someone who considers him/herself pretty much enlightened, this surely is the course you will love to be on!

I myself went for enlightenment when I was 21 years of age, and a lot of the things I will be telling you during these thirty days, I picked up right at the beginning of my journey, in 1974 and 1975. These basic principles proved to be correct throughout my life, so I am sure that they are expressions of eternal, universal and true knowledge. In a sense, during the coming 30 days I will try to share with you all the essential knowledge about life I collected during the last thirty-seven years!

So is this a crash course in enlightenment? In a way it is, and in a way of course it cannot be. It is, because it will deal with all that a human being should know about enlightenment, about selfrealisation, about the world, and about the nature and origin of creation, as well as with the goal of life and creation! So I will try to make you acquainted with all the ingredients that make up the cake of enlightenment!

But the proof of the cake will for ever be in the eating. Enlightenment is nothing other than self knowledge, in the deepest sense of the word. This means that we are supposed to become self-referral. And as long as we are learning something from a book, so long we are focusing our attention on something that is not our self, not our own essence! In that sense I mentioned above that an email course or a course from a book cannot actually make you enlightened.

Nevertheless, if you understand the things I will share with you, you are actually experiencing these truths for yourself, by yourself and in yourself! In that sense, all you have to do to become enlightened, is to understand, and intuitively recognize the truth as it is presented to you. And I can assure you, that all I am bringing up is simple and easy to understand! There is nothing complicated about self knowledge, on the contrary! We have been brought up with so many complicated things at our schools, colleges and universities, that we have unlearned the ability to be simple, and to be aware of the absolute simplicity that is underlying the infinite complexities of life. You see, life is both: infinitely complex and absolutely simple at the same time!

During this course, you will be shown the way to be aware of the underlying unity that pervades the infinite diversity of creation. What is that common ingredient in all of the manifold expressions of life? Consciousness. Consciousness is not only the source of all your thoughts and feelings, it is the source of your physiology as well! If we are to be clear in our heads, and clear in our hearts, and sure enough, that is exactly what enlightenment means, we are to understand that consciousness is primary and that matter is secondary! Consciousness is that which in churches is adored as “God”, in Mosks as “Allah”, and in temples as “Shiva”, etcetera. As you may have noticed, in the churches, temples and mosks, usually one is not so clear what exactly is meant by these ancient terms! The whole world is in an intellectual and emotional chaos, confusion, bankruptcy.

This simple course has more than enough power to eliminate this unfortunate situation! It is as deep as an infinite ocean, it is as wide as an infinite ocean. It provides not only an internationally acceptable common ground for all religions, it also provides the common ground of science and religion! This it does by showing the common essence of all people and all of peoples creations!

Mind you, this is not a religious course. Enlightenment has nothing to do with faith! One of my favorite expressions is: belief is for the ignorant. It is only natural that ignorant people are fond of believing something. But in your case, the very the fact that you are no longer satisfied with believe, religion or blind faith, is in itself a sure sign that the dawn of enlightenment is taking place in your mind already.

During the course of my life, I noticed that there are many misunderstandings about enlightenment, as there are many misunderstandings about everything else! Characteristic of life in ignorance is that one sees everything in a wrong light, in a lack of light. In the absence of light, a piece of rope could easily frighten us, because we tend to think it is a snake. In stead of coping with a non-existing snake, it is much wiser to light a light. That we will do in this unique course! Instead of coping with the darkness that is prevailing throughout the world until now, in this course we will concern ourselves with introducing the light!

So let us take a breath, and turn the switch that is waiting to be turned in our own awareness! Let us move forward and demystify the whole field of so called spirituality! Let us rejoice in adequate knowledge about an area of life that has hitherto been a white spot on the map of life: OUR OWN CONSCIOUSNESS!
Here follows an overview of the 30 themes that will give you all the insights you need for complete enlightenment in Self realization!

Frans Langenkamp Quick Facts

When I was young, I wanted to become enlightened…

At 20 I began to meditate, and seven years later became a teacher of Transcendental Meditation.

Then I studied vedic astrology, Yoga and Vedanta.

At 25 I was so relaxed that for the first time I experienced my Real Self…

I became aware that I was not the body, nor the mind, nor the personality that went by the name Frans…

I realized that I was Consciousness as such… Pure, unbounded, and peaceful awareness..

The most remarkable aspect of this liberating experience was, that I realized that this was the first time I was totally relaxed, and felt that this state was absolutely natural.

Thinking about this experience, which lasted a few hours, I realized that the state of Self Awareness is the most natural thing in the world, and that everybody is supposed to have it! It belongs to out Birthright!

Since that time, it was May 1988, all my endeavours, personal and professional, center around helping myself and my fellow human Beings to have this liberating experience of pure Self Awareness, and integrate it in daily life.

Meditation has been a key to it, but equally important was the adequate Knowledge of Life, which I gained from the study of Yoga, Vedanta, Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology.

Over the last 40 years I have developed dozens of ways and means to help myself to become more and more Psychologically Mature, while at the same time helping others to do the same.

Feel free to contact me for a “cosmic coaching” (a coaching with the help of the vedic horoscope) per skype, or to hear more about my online audio course in what I call “The ABC of Life”. In this course I have integrated all that I have found essential for an easy and fullfilled Living!!!

Transcendental Meditation. The world’s best kept secret?: Chris Greathead at TEDxJesmondDene

The Talk: Transcendental Meditation. The world’s best kept secret?
The Person: Chris runs courses in personal development and stress management through Transcendental Meditation (TM) across the UK. Over the past 18 years, he has worked with staff from major public and private sector organizations in the North East of England. Having studied with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s TM organization in Switzerland, France, India and the UK, he qualified to become a TM teacher in 1977 and has taught courses in India and the UK ever since. Since 1985, he has been teaching TM independently of the international TM organization with, what he hopes, is a more down to earth approach.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
