The article features three artists who describe the value of their daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique for development of the heart, expansion of awareness, and the continuous flow of creativity. All three also practice the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying.
Jim Shrosbree, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Art at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, explains that the practice of Yogic Flying is a simple thing that allows the mind and body to become more coordinated. 'If you're developing that area within you, within your awareness—the pure value of silence of consciousness—and that's growing stronger, more balanced, more healthy, it's affecting your body every day. You're just enjoying life more, and it's a fabulous unfoldment of things moment by moment every day.'
Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying 'remove the boundaries between being able to access the flow of creativity from its source to expressing it in the outer world,' says Elaine Arnold, an artist from Long Island, New York. 'Any artist wants to be able to have a flow, a continuous flow of creativity, and since I started practising Transcendental Meditation, my experience has been, it has been a continuous flow.'
Elaine works with Lynne Marshall, who is from Johannesburg, South Africa. Lynne comments, 'One of the other things that we realized from our practice of Transcendental Meditation is that awareness expands: it expands to perceive more opportunities, more possibilities, and to make more connections.' Because both are practising Transcendental Meditation, 'we have between ourselves more creativity that kind of bounces around between us, and the wholeness that emerges is so much more fun and so much richer.'
