South of town, tucked back off the main road, resides a very special place.

The Monroe Institute® was founded by Robert A. Monroe in 1979 following years of research, experimental seminars, and exploration regarding the very nature of human consciousness.

The mission of this Institute is dedicated to furthering the exploration of consciousness, expanded awareness, and discovery of self. Seminars are held at this place and at several locations around the world. Week-long, weekend, and one-day programs are offered by trained facilitators.

Fortunate to stumble upon a mini, one-day program, I attended two weeks ago. Visiting with an open mind I discovered new approaches to ways of thinking through the realization that we are more than our physical bodies.

IF this topic speaks to you, I suggest contacting the Institute at www.monroeinstitute.org or email at info@monroeinstitute.org

Robert Monroe’s work is also documented in three publications:
Journeys Out of the Body (Doubleday, 1971)
Far Journeys (Doubleday, 1985)
Ultimate Journey (Doubleday, 1994)
