The Global Awakening of Humanity

Our Mission

The Monroe Institute advances the exploration of human consciousness and the experience of expanded states of awareness as a path to creating a life of personal freedom, meaning, insight, and happiness.

The Monroe Institute® (TMI), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit education and research organization, is a preeminent leader in human consciousness exploration. TMI is devoted to the premise that focused consciousness contains the answers to humankind’s questions. Through the use of specific binaural beat technology, education, research, and development, TMI has been advancing the experience of individuals in the exploration of targeted and expanded states of awareness for close to 50 years.

TMI program participants learn experientially through a specially designed binaural beat audio-guidance system at our 300-acre residential retreat nestled in Virginia’s scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, 30 miles south of Charlottesville. Founded in the early 1970s as an educational and research organization by inventor and sound pioneer Robert A. Monroe, TMI offers numerous week-long and weekend residential programs on the main campus in Faber, Virginia, and hundreds more throughout the US, Europe, Latin America, and Asia. The centerpiece of TMI learning is the guided use of Hemi-Sync® and Spatial Angle Modulation™ (SAM), Monroe binaural beats audio technologies.

Tens of thousands of people have attended the Institute’s residential and Outreach programs, and millions have benefited from our educational materials. TMI works with researchers and practitioners, through university and clinical collaborations, and with our Professional Division and Board of Advisors members, to investigate wider applications of Monroe binaural beat technologies. Anecdotal and empirical reporting on uses of Monroe binaural beat technologies is available in our research section. In addition to Robert Monroe's three books on out-of-body experiences, see our eBook entitled “Gateway to the Human Mind.”
