The Monroe Institute


Overview: The Tip of the Iceberg

Skip met Bob Monroe at Whistlefield Farm in 1977 and never looked back. The details are in his autobiography, Captain of My Ship, Master of My Soul.

In 2002, reviewer Carol Taylor wrote of Captain, "Examples of personal belief and choice as guideposts and markers help to identify one man's 'exploration of reality through personal experience.' Beginning with a childhood 'filled with extraordinary spiritual experiences that led me to a military career as a clairvoyant counterspy,' Atwater describes instances of spirit guidance throughout his lifetime and how 'everyday life is a mere reflection of spirit experienced as an intention to become aware of All That Is.'"

Shifting the focus to Skip's long tenure at TMI, here are some highlights -- the tip of the iceberg.
