“Resilience is another quality that continues to grow with my daily practice. Many of my colleagues have made such comments as, ‘I don’t know how you do it’ and ‘I don’t want your job’ due to the intensity level associated with my position.
“Most days I wear a genuine smile and stroll into the office with expanded bliss. Many nights, as I exit the office on the way to the parking lot, my energy level is almost the same as when I walked through the door in the morning. I immediately become aware of this and smile with a knowingness.
“Finally, my days are dotted with frequent coincidences — when I think of a colleague or client and begin to work on a deliverable or a request and immediately my phone rings and it’s the very person I need at that moment to provide the information I need to complete the task or receive the information I’ve prepared.”
No. Yogic Flying is not a philosophy, religion, or belief system, and it does not require any change of beliefs or lifestyle. It is just a simple mental technique that allows anyone to take advantage of one’s full mental potential. People from all religions practice Yogic Flying and they find that it powerfully supports and enriches their religious life.

The program is particularly suited to a busy, modern, western lifestyle. In fact, the busier we become, the more important it is that we take time to develop our full mental mental potential, so that we can accomplish more, and avoid the great fatigue that usually comes with a busy lifestyle.

“I derive even more benefit from Yogic Flying. Yogic Flying cultivates an even greater quality of successful action — being able to act from a level where my mind is most silent and expanded and my brain is most coherent. This technique is natural and simple and yet the results are noticeable and cumulative. Being able to recharge on a daily basis and improve my efficiency in action gives me a competitive edge in the workforce and allows me to stay focused on my goals at hand."
“When I practice Yogic Flying, I experience lightness throughout my body. This lightness creates happiness inside and I am blissful and energized. After flying, I feel I have recharged my body and mind, and every part of me is refreshed and revitalized.

“As a teacher I feel so fortunate to have this technique. Every day is a joy. I have an infinite reservoir of patience. Nothing that comes up during the day can shake my foundation of peace and bliss. As a result I can always interact with my students in the most uplifting way, giving every one of them my most nourishing quality of attention.”

“As general manager of a technical services staffing firm, I consider staff development to be critical to our growth and success. I’m always looking for programs that can develop skills and qualities in our employees.
“A number of our people are Yogic Flyers. I’ve noticed significant growth in their personal and professional lives. I see benefits in three areas.
“First is increased clarity in their thinking. At meetings they tend to contribute in a more creative, positive, and harmonious way. They add to the success of the team while maintaining their competitive spirit. This has been a great asset for our group.
“Second is enhanced communication skills. Their telephone manner, speaking skills, and ability to present concepts and proposals have grown. They maintain a confident, professional, friendly attitude.
Finally, they accomplish more and more in their work while seemingly expending less effort and energy. They do not break under the pressures of their job. Their productivity and effectiveness have grown considerably.
“I look forward to still greater results from these valued members of our team as they continue with the TM-

“The main effect of Yogic Flying in my daily life is integration — pulling together the wholeness of all the components of my life. A sense of connectedness with everything around me pervades my whole life. In the frenzy of being a doctor and mother, I maintain that sense of connectedness, even in the frenzy.
“I also have far more insight into people. Yogic Flying helps develop a knowingness that helps me reach people better. People instinctively know your heart is there. They trust you and listen to what you say.
“During Yogic Flying I experience profound silence and happiness, waves of energy, the opening of my heart. It makes me fresh and clear. It gives me an incredible amount of energy so I can just keep going. This is important because, besides taking care of my mother and my family, I have to travel to several different hospitals every day. I don’t see how I could do all of these things without the energy that Yogic Flying gives me.”

"Every day, whether I am with my family, practicing law, composing music, or whatever, I feel wholeness pervading my life. This has been called the art of living. The 'art' is the ability to live the fullness of life (spiritual and material) without effort, which is, of course, the only way it can be done."
“My experiences during Yogic Flying include great freedom, clarity, energy, happiness, comfort, and bigness. Time and space often seep to dissolve and my body is experienced as streams of light, energy and bliss. My awareness is huge and completely at home in itself. As I sit in the deep wholeness, there is a great upward energy, a soaring sensation, the wholeness moves, and I take off.
“The whole thing is just so compelling. It is clear that this is what life is meant to be about, that I am glimpsing the true status and goal of human life, and that human life and society should be organized so that everyone can experience this.
“At the same time it is puzzling: How did life get in such a muddle, how did the true nature of things get so obscured? If such experiences are possible and available to everybody (after all, I am nothing special, all I have done is to practice the techniques Maharishi has taught to thousands), all this confusion, suffering, and especially hatred makes absolutely no sense at all. Even the smallest glimpse of our own true nature compels us to seek increased harmony and bliss in ourselves and in the world.”
