Robert Monroe Workshops - Learn MoreRobert Monroe
The Monroe Institute founder and Hemi-Sync inventor, Robert A. Monroe(1915-1995), was a pioneer in the investigation of human consciousness since the 1950s. He worked with physicists, biochemists, physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, electrical engineers, corporate executives, educators and other professionals to develop and refine his original discoveries.

Known as a pragmatic businessman, his interest in developing Hemi-Sync was enriched by paranormal experiences that drastically altered his life. Unpredictably and without his willing it, Monroe found himself leaving his physical body and traveling via a “second body” to locales far removed from any physical or spiritual reality he could comprehend.

Journeys Out Of The Body
His record of out of body experiences in places unbound by time or death has comforted millions of people who have encountered paranormal incidents. (1st in the Monroe Trilogy).

The Monroe Institute
In 1974, the Monroe Institute was formed out of an original research group, and began conducting learning seminars in self-control of human consciousness. These were held at various locations both in the United States and abroad. Most are now conducted at the Institute Center in Virginia. Included in The Monroe Institute’s facility are housing for thirty people, classrooms, conference rooms, lecture hall, research laboratory and recording studios.

Through the years, there have been many major published articles based upon the Monroe Institute activities. Several related books are in publication, including Ronald Russell’s Using the Whole Brain and Robert Monroe`s trilogy published by Doubleday, Journeys out of the Body, Far Journeys, and Ultimate Journey.

Over four decades of extensive applied and clinical research and development have demonstrated Hemi-Sync’s value for enhancing relaxation, meditation, stress reduction, pain management, improved sleep, memory and learning, creativity, treatment of developmental disabilities and other applications.

The Monroe Institute’s approach includes no dogma, religion, or particular belief system, and no hypnosis nor subliminal suggestion can be found in all the Hemi-Sync product line. The non-invasive methodology used allows the participant/user of Hemi-Sync to be always exercising individual will.

Not To Be Confused With Subliminals
None of audio programs produced by the Monroe Institute are subliminal, for in all of the verbal exercises mixed with the Hemi-Sync® audio process, the listener follows suggestions or cues that are clearly spoken. Hemi-Sync® sounds are barely audible and harmoniously interact with the brain’s natural ability to distinguish slight differences in sound Hertz. Subliminals would only interfere with this organic listening process.
