There's nothing quite like feeling of excitement and satisfaction that come when passionate interest, careful planning, successful collaboration, hard work, and clear intent combine to produce outstanding results!
Last month I had the great pleasure of speaking before the 26th Professional Seminar here at TMI. High energy was palpable as I stepped up to the podium to deliver the State of the Institute address. The crowded conference room was filled with representatives from the many groups who, together, comprise The Monroe Institute. I recognized Professional Division and other members, Outreach and residential trainers, Board members, Local Chapter Network folks, staffers, and valued friends and supporters. My heart filled with gratitude for these people who gave their all to make last year’s wonderfully positive outcomes possible.
I won’t reiterate that lengthy list of outcomes now. If you are interested in the details, scroll down to see the video of my presentation.
Bob Monroe’s end-of-life admonition to provide something of value and “Get it out there!” has helped to inspire TMI’s accelerating forward momentum. This being his centennial year, we’re celebrating Bob’s life and work throughout 2015. In that spirit, the Professional Seminar was thrilled to welcome a stellar speaker lineup, including Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D., Charles T. Tart, Ph.D., and William Buhlman. The video of these presentations and others will be viewable online free as soon as postproduction is complete.
While the Seminar was gearing up, a small group met privately at TMI. Leaders from several consciousness-based organizations convened to launch an Alliance. Our intent: to take the next powerful step in our collective journey to become more effective, offer greater service and advance the evolution of our work in the investigation and understanding of consciousness through strong, collaborative effort. I will share more on this as events unfold. Meanwhile, I can say this first meeting was a resounding success. Our next gathering is on the books!
As TMI continues to build upon its solid foundation established throughout the last several decades, we witness the ongoing expansion of Bob’s legacy. He left us a map. You perpetuate his legacy by using that map to probe farther and deeper, exploring the innermost territories of your expanded Self. As you do this, the map is updated.
Take a look at our latest “map updates!” Nine exciting new programs are being launched, several of which are already on the calendar; others have premiered to rave reviews. And, one of our long-held dreams is finally coming true with the launch of our first online program on June 22nd, the Gateway Experience Wave I.
With appreciation for Bob’s boundless curiosity and echoing the theme of the 2015 Professional Seminar, I enthusiastically dedicate this issue of the newsletter to “The Legacy of Robert A. Monroe.”
To your best life,
