As a Member of the Higher Balance Forum, there are many perks! Here are just some of them: 1) Higher Balance will do its best to post new release information of products here first before the general public knows. If it’s a limited production you will probably be one of the few to get your hands on it. 2) We will pre-announce events here before public notice as well. This means you'll get a head start on reserving your spot! 3) New book and module releases will be discussed as they move into production and release. 4) Special "TOP SECRET" projects: There are many new projects we are working on and we will leak some of those secrets out here first and, in many cases, only here. We only ask that you do not repost the information outside of the forum. 5) Outstanding forum members (people who are highly active in the community, constantly sharing and posting, welcoming and supporting other members, etc.) will have the opportunity to be selected for group dinners of just a few people with Eric at our live events if you are attending. We cannot guarantee a specific date or if a spot is open, its on a case by case scenario and is highly dependent upon your contribution to the forum. 6) We will occasionally offer active members a special preview of new material, sound tracks, and ask you to test new products out etc. This post will help guide you through your first experiences on the forum. Before you read on, please be sure to read the Forum Rules & Guidelines. Although this is a public forum, we encourage you to sign up for an account. This way you can join the conversations by contributing your own thoughts and ideas. And the sooner you setup a profile it, which dates your member status and shows how long you have been a member, this will give you access to perks and specials that are only available to to contributing members. So let's get started! 1. Be sure to save your user name and password. If you forget your password you can request a password reset. We recommend creating a strong password with at least one number and one special character to keep your account secure. 2. Setting up your profile. Be sure to add a picture of yourself and maybe even consider using your real first name - this helps EJP identify with you, so he knows who you are when he sees you at events, etc. 3. When you are ready head over to the "Introduce Yourself" section and let us know a little bit about yourself. We want to know who you are, where you're from, what you're interested in and how you found Higher Balance. 4. To find other members in your area/community check out the section for "Local Meetups & Meditation Groups". What city do you live in? There's a good chance that there are other people in that same city looking to meet up and meditate! We encourage you to reach out to each other and start organizing these groups. 5. There are community administrators & moderators who have been pre-approved to assist you inside of the forums. Their profile will indicate their status clearly. Please contact them first regarding your questions and concerns before calling or emailing Higher Balance directly. If you do not get a response right away, we encourage you to reach out to another admin or moderator next. If you don't receive a response within a few hours then contact Higher Balance support. 6. Members are encouraged to start there own suggestions and practices to other members providing they are Higher Balance practices and within the first core levels or published in the book series. Detailing information is not recommended; people should already know how to do the practice. If they do not, they should read the book or get the material. Books are digital downloads, so they take only a few seconds to get and cost as little as a few dollars. 7. If you have questions, or want to add something about any topic, use the search bar at the top of the forum to help you find the applicable thread (forum conversation). If you can't find it, the people in this forum are some of the kindest and most entertaining people you will ever be in contact with feel free to ask any unanswered questions in the proper forums. Also, be sure to check out the General Discussion section, as your question may have already been answered in there. See you out there!
