During the Remote Viewing Practicum conducted at The Monroe Institute during the week of September 28 to October 4, twenty-four double-blind, independently judged, remote-viewing trials were conducted “for the record” as an integral part of the educational program.
ll participants at TMI’s 2008 professional seminar—“Hemi-Sync: Varieties of Experience”—received the POSITIVELY AGELESS album as a gift. Upon returning to Puerto Rico, Carmen gathered a group of friends to experiment with its five exercises. She shares the results of their adventure below.
... a quiet mind is not a state of mind to be achieved. It is the state we experience when there is nothing to be achieved. It is the mind in its natural condition, untarnished by fears and desires, and the thoughts they create. When everything is OK in our world, we feel OK inside; we are at ease.
On the last weekend of February 2004, eighteen participants gathered together with Trainer Macca Patricia Peters at Roberts Mountain Retreat to enjoy the cozy ambience and each other’s company and to experience opening themselves to the all-pervasive energy available to every being.
Cathy describes the FIVEWEDNESDAYS program, offered in 2007, as "something so special and profound. Each day was the essence of a specific program, beginning with the GATEWAY VOYAGE on Sunday and ending with HEARTLINE on Thursday."
In these five essays, Laurie Monroe discusses detaching from one’s thoughts for a time to align with the Universal Consciousness; the one year anniversary of Robert Monroe’s transition; some of her experiences as Bob Monroe’s daughter; the Heartline program; and working in an era of transformative change.
Systems engineer Todd Phillips attended the GATEWAY VOYAGE® in June 1997. Little did he imagine that the levels of consciousness he would encounter upon returning for GUIDELINES® in April 1999 would illuminate a problem he had been wrestling with for years.
"Through HEARTLINE and the synchronized presentation of METAMUSIC®, I traveled out into the Universe as well as into Mother Earth. At each location there were precious gifts to choose from, and afterward, I always came home to my Heart."
The HIGH ADVENTURE program premiered in September to rave reviews from its charter members. The concept of personal freedom to choose from among a large selection of tapes from other Institute programs, and to be able to listen to them any time one chose, appealed to the freewheeling, adventuresome side of these participants.
After my first Gateway Voyage week at The Monroe Institute I kept returning, not only because of what I was discovering about myself, both my I-ness and the expanded state of Winter that went beyond any title, but rather, I liked the fact that when asked a question about his adventures, Bob (Monroe) would say, “You go find out. Then come back and tell me.” Taking that advice to heart, I felt free to venture beyond any and everything I had ever imagined. In the beginning, despite my degree in psychology, I didn’t have a clue about consciousness, mind, spirit, energy, or anything else we might list here.
These days, it’s popular to extol the virtues of the intuitive mind often above those of the rational mind. And, no wonder! After hundreds of years of disparagement (especially in the West) and often downright rejection of our intuitive nature, intuition is regaining acceptance as a viable perceptual modality.
