The first annual Professional Seminar was held here at the Institute September 29 to October 3. The purpose of this seminar was to bring people to the Institute from all professions to exchange ideas in interdisciplinary research and to acquaint them with our new facilities. The seminar was a tremendous success judging by everyone’s interest, enthusiasm and the quality of research papers presented.
The Second Annual Professional Seminar was held at the Monroe Institute October 10-14, 1984. Six of our members made presentations to the group on their utilization of Hemi-Sync® in their profession. The talks were enlightening and they provided much food for thought.
On the opening night of the Professional Seminar, Bob Monroe set the theme for the ensuing days: humankind has a unique window of opportunity for moving beyond fear and gaining a fuller understanding of existence; Hemi-Sync® is a powerful tool that The Monroe Institute (TMI), with the aid of its Professional Division, can use to assist in this important transformation. A summary of his talk follows:
TMI Professional Members convened for the sixth annual Professional Seminar September 3 through 9 of 1988. Held at the Institute’s facility in Faber, and hosted by Professional Division Director Leslie France, this year’s seminar centered around the theme, “Celebrate Emergence,” providing professional members an opportunity to focus on new creative uses of the Hemi-Sync® technology.
Within the theme of the seminar, “Manifesting the Vision,” members representing a broad spectrum of professional interests focused on the tasks of bringing vision into form through Hemi-Sync® application.

As the 1990 Professional Seminar convened on July 21st at The Monroe Institute Center, members quickly realized that Hemi-Sync’s reputation and recognition had achieved a new level of success in the world. Echoing the seminar theme. “Expansion and Integration,” feature presenters demonstrated this wider acceptance of the Hemi-Sync technology into established institutional systems and practices, such as corporate culture, teenagers in special education, psychiatry, and retail services.
Under the theme Beliefs in Action: Creating Realities for the ‘90s, forty-six members of the Professional Division gathered on July 20th at The Monroe Institute Center for the ninth annual Professional Seminar.
From July 24 through July 30, Professional Members from Canada, Great Britain, Italy, South Africa, Switzerland, and the United States convened at the Nancy Penn Center in Faber, Virginia, for the Eleventh Annual Professional Seminar.
July 22-29, 1995, fifty professional members, guests, and staff members participated in the Thirteenth Annual Professional Seminar. The chosen theme of this year’s seminar was “Co-Creating the Reality 1995.” Thus challenged, the group proceeded to craft an inspiring and productive synthesis of theme and agreement.
A later than usual date for the 1996 Professional Seminar—July 27 to August 2—brought the blessing of unexpectedly mild temperatures. This was fortunate, since the creative juices of the group participating in Hemi-Sync®: The Inner Information Highway quickly came to a boil. The Seminar theme reflected the process of melding the inner and outer information highways in the service of individual and collective expansion.
The “Embracing Resonance” theme made Edgar D. Mitchell, ScD, Apollo 14 astronaut and founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, an especially appropriate keynote speaker for the 1997 Professional Seminar.
From July 25 through August 1, 1998, members of The Monroe Institute’s Professional Division and special guests gathered for the Sixteenth Annual Professional Seminar, Discovering the Inner Healer with Hemi-Sync®. Under that banner, presenters and participants embarked on a quest to examine existing applications of Hemi-Sync and to expand its potential as a global force for healing.
The Seventeenth Professional Seminar continued a long tradition of excellence. The speakers, professional members, and guests who attended on March 18-22, 2000, met not only to expand their knowledge of Hemi-Sync but to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of The Monroe Institute’s Professional Division. Both The Nancy Penn Center and Roberts Mountain Retreat were pressed into service to accommodate the overflow crowd. The event reaffirmed Robert Monroe’s wisdom in gathering together educators, therapists, physicians, and scientists who would develop Hemi-Sync applications based on the proposition that “focused consciousness contains all solutions to the questions of human existence.”
March 9-13, 2002, sixty members of The Monroe Institute’s Professional Division convened for the Eighteenth Professional Seminar, “Hemi-Sync®: Focus on Healing.” Special guest speakers and many of the Institutes Board of Advisors also attended. The overflow crowd was accommodated at both The Nancy Penn Center and Roberts Mountain Retreat.
On March 22, 2008, over sixty TMI professional members, Monroe family members, and special guests arrived at the Nancy Penn Center to register for Hemi-Sync®: Varieties of Experience, the Twenty-first Professional Seminar.
“Consciousness: The Endless Frontier,” The Monroe Institute’s Twenty-second Professional Seminar, could just as well have been titled “Back to the Future,” except keynote speaker Thomas Campbell, MS, had no damage to history to repair, unlike Marty McFly, the chief character in the film.
The 24th Professional Seminar was held in February, 2013. Themed “Transformational Change: New Perspectives on Consciousness,” it featured featured an excellent speaker line-up, a successful silent auction fundraiser, an intensive Guided Exploration Day, and reorganization group processes.
