The Monroe Institute

Programs

Programs at the Monroe Institute are many and varied to allow participants to pursue their own personal path of exploration.

At the Virginia campus programs are conducted at special lodging and conference facilities, the Nancy Penn Center and Roberts Mountain Retreat.  Located in the pastoral foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Charlottesville, Virginia, these facilities provide comfortable accommodations that maximize the effectiveness of the process while offering a uniquely supportive environment for self-discovery and personal transformation.

Accredited residential Program trainers provide the knowledge and depth of experience to assist you on your journey.  

What programs can do for you:

From several studies during and after our programs, it was found that participants experienced:

  • Enhanced mental abilities
  • Resolution of emotional conflicts
  • Peak experiences
  • Inner guidance or "Channeling"
  • Experiences of consciousness outside of Time and Space
  • Extreme psychological well-being
  • Feelings of deep relaxation and inner calm
  • More life satisfaction

What you can expect at a program:

(in Virginia – very similar in off-campus programs)

Day 1

When you arrive at the Charlottesville airport, a shuttle picks you up to bring you to the Institute, about 45 minutes away, in the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

On arrival at the center, a host will greet you and show you to your room.  The hostess will show you the different technology aspects of your special bed chamber (CHEC unit) and give you a tour of the facility. 

A trainer will give you a brief intake interview, to answer any questions you might have and talk about your expectations of the program.

After dinner the first program session will begin with an overview by the trainer(s) and introduction of participants.  The first audio exercise will begin after a presentation by the trainer(s) of the content and purpose of the exercise, and a review of how the equipment works. Afterwards snacks are available.  Our special sleep sounds are piped into the bed chambers for support in sleep, if you wish.

Days 2-6

A morning affirmation and wake-up music start the day, followed by an optional yoga class.  After breakfast, the morning consists of several audio exercises, each presented by the trainer(s) and experiences are shared afterwards.  Sharing in the group is optional. 

During the long lunch break, there is time for a massage (for an additional fee), a walk to the lake or around the grounds, socializing or resting. 

We encourage you to take this time to be in your own process, and not be spending much time on computers or cell phones, though internet access is available.

After the break and in the evenings there are more exercises and other activities related to the program content.  Often guest speakers are invited to share with the group. 

Day 7

Participants leave before 12 noon, usually after breakfast.  There are no exercises on this day.

Different types of programs:

6-day residential programs

At the main Virginia campus, we have approximately 55 programs a year, each beginning on Saturday afternoon and ending the following Friday after breakfast.

The Gateway Voyage is the basic program and sets the foundation for the graduate programs.
Graduate programs can be focused on expansion to higher dimensions, healing, personal growth, psychic skills or other areas of interest.

The Out-of-Body Intensive, Exploration Essence and Exploring Energy Healing programs have no prerequisites, but do not allow access to the Graduate programs.

Some of these programs are also held internationally and in other parts of the US, with the same general schedule. Several three-day programs complete the schedule.

3-day residential programs

These programs are offered for individuals who aren’t able to attend a full 6-day program but still want to experience the benefits of the Institute. The programs typically start on a Friday evening and end on Monday morning.

Outreach programs

Certified Outreach facilitators offer one or two-day programs in many areas around the world. These programs offer participants an intensive close to home, in a group setting and guided by a trained and experienced facilitator.

Continuing Education Credits

The Monroe Institute is pleased to offer Continuing Education (CE) credit for a number of courses. Depending on the requirements of your state licensing board, you may be able to receive Continuing Education credits for Counselors, Social Workers, or Massage Therapists.
