My Big TOE Intensive

Prerequisite: None

TMI Program Calendar   




In My Big TOE Intensive, you receive instruction from one of the researchers who helped birth The Monroe Institute. Explore what it is like to travel the Larger Consciousness System (LCS), and what one is actually doing during that process. First hand, come to understand the limitations, purpose, and dynamics of exceptional human experiences.

In February of 2003, Tom Campbell published the My Big TOE trilogy, his exploration of the nature of existence. This overarching model of reality, mind, and consciousness explains the paranormal as well as the normal, places spirituality within a scientific context, solves a host of scientific paradoxes, and provides direction for those wishing to personally experience an expanded awareness of All That Is.

Explore what it is like to travel the Larger Consciousness System (LCS)

Tom defines the nature of reality, consciousness, and what, where, why, and how space-time exists, including its various rules, such as the speed of light and multiple nonphysical-matter realities (NPMR). You explore the nature the Larger Consciousness System (LCS)—what it is, and what occurs during the process; how to tap into the LCS most effectively, interpret what you receive, and assess its value. You examine what more you can do with your experience, how to make sense of it, why you received what you did, and what you might try next.

My Big TOE is a theory of everything that demonstrates legitimate science and metaphysics. But don’t confuse the theory with the reality it describes. Campbell’s Big TOE differs from science’s Little TOE that attempts to unify quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity. Thomas Campbell says that string theory, the many worlds interpretation, the theory of the holographic universe, and the theory of simulated reality are all attempts to explain the Little TOE rather than the Big TOE.

The Big TOE naturally contains the Little TOE, the physical reality. The Big TOE has to explain all reality—the mystery of consciousness, physical and metaphysical, objective and subjective, normal and paranormal, meaning, importance, purpose, what is wrong and what is right, morality, value, justice, beauty, love, caring, sympathy, fear—and it must be able to answer questions like: What is the purpose of life? Why are we here?

Learn About Consciousness and Evolution

The conventional view is that consciousness is created by the brain. Tom Campbell says no, we are not physical beings, but consciousness itself. He describes consciousness as a digital information system, which is self-aware, does not have a stable state, and is constantly developing. Consciousness is, according to him, the ultimate level of reality. Everything is manifested from consciousness. We are all part of the same Larger Consciousness System.

Tom emphasizes that there are two levels of human existence—the being level and the intellectual level. The Big TOE can only be understood at the being level—the truest level of human existence—but not at the intellectual level. A change in consciousness can only happen at the being level.

Our actions do not change our consciousness. What we do is of secondary importance. Our intent and motivation determine the quality of our consciousness. Only when our consciousness grows toward love are we able to enhance the quality of our consciousness and help the Larger Consciousness System in its evolution.

"Consciousness is the Ultimate Level of Reality"

This program reveals that Love is the most developed state of consciousness.

This Powerful 4-day/5-night All-inclusive Program Offers:

  • Accommodation options for this program will work a bit differently because we will be using both our Nancy Penn Center (NPC) and our Robert's Mountain Retreat (RMR) facilities to accommodate a larger group of participants for the program.  Participants opting to stay at RMR will receive a $200 discount, but will also be sleeping at RMR; all other activities of the day, including meditation exercises, will take place at the NPC.  Meditation exercises for those choosing this discount will be done in a group rather than private setting.  The first 24 registrants will automatically be assigned accomodations at the NPC unless the discounted RMR option is specifically requested.
  • Daily consciousness exploration facilitated by our skilled trainers
  • Semi-private accommodations
  • 3 delicious home-style meals a day
  • Daily yoga classes
  • Transportation to and from airport (see details)
  • As well as access to walking/hiking trails, complimentary WiFi and massage therapy upon request (additional fee)


Thomas Campbell

Tom Campbell, a nuclear physicist, began researching altered states of consciousness with Bob Monroe (Journeys Out of the Body, Far Journeys, and Ultimate Journey) in the early 1970s, where he and a few others were instrumental in getting Monroe's laboratory for the study of consciousness up and running. These early drug-free consciousness pioneers helped design experiments, developed the technology for creating specific altered states, and were the main subjects of study (guinea pigs) all at the same time. Tom is the "TC (physicist)" described in Bob Monroe's second book Far Journeys.
