Creating Peace in Lebanon: One Woman’s Story

by Linda Egenes | Jun 28, 2018

Inner peace is not just something that Susan Hamza talks about—it’s something she lives on a daily basis.

“When I meditate I feel a sense of peace, a total absence of disturbance on the level of emotions, and that carries on throughout the day,” she says. “It’s now a time of my life when very little can disturb my inner peace. It’s a great blessing.”

This statement is even more impressive when you find out that Susan and her family live in Lebanon, a country that has survived a civil war, terrorist attacks, and invasion from neighboring countries in recent decades.

What is Susan’s secret to staying calm in turbulent times? She has been practicing the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique for 45 years. I recently had the pleasure of interviewing her about her experiences.

Susan laughs when she describes her motivation for starting TM in the first place. “It was 1973 and hippie time, and I was interested in meditation,” she says. “My dream was to go off to Japan and be bidden to enlightenment by a monk in a silk robe!” …

Flying Time

Extracted from “The Complete Book of Yogic Flying”, page 191-197.


( I only have Links at Amazon Germany: )

“During group flying, there is no real sense of time in that wholeness and
unboundedness. The body is moving wholeness as it hops, while the inner
awareness is silent, non-active, and ‘immovable.’…”

“Often the awareness spontaneously gets focused to a point.
I sense a huge unboundedness in my body. It is no longer a hard,
concrete boundary, but is rather more like a porous, transparent,
insignificant shell surrounded by inner and outer unbounded fullness…”

“I experience everything as my own Self – as my own consciousness,
so that I am hopping within my Self…”

“During the most exhilarating flying, sometimes I look around at the
group and it no longer seems like a group of individuals with different
personalities but one awareness, my own awareness, expressing itself
as different bodies and personalities.”

“Sometimes during Yogic Flying, I become absorbed in an experience of
intense wholeness and bliss. When this happens, the body naturally becomes
very upright in the traditional Yogic Flying position, feels light,
and almost disappears entirely from my awareness.
The overwhelming experience at this time is wholeness – lively inner silence.
It is as if I am sitting in a void, a void filled with bliss and wholeness.
That is all that there is. A very substantial wholeness encompasses an
insubstantial body. My awareness becomes greatly expanded and is bathed in brightness…”
