Coronavivus (COVID-19) and Monroe Programming

As always, your health and safety remain our priority during the continued uncertainty of COVID-19 and the new variant(s). While there is promise with vaccines being distributed, there are many additional steps that must be considered in deciding when our Monroe campus will re-open, such as health and safety upgrades to our facilities.

After weighing all the factors, we have concluded that our goal is to re-open our residential programs January 1, 2022.

Being closed for 2021 is a profound disappointment for us all. But, we believe that this is the most respectful and safe course of action to protect our participants, trainers, volunteers, vendors and staff.

As you know, previous to COVID-19 more than 77% of Monroe’s revenue had been provided by on-campus retreats. This was the case until March of 2020 when the pandemic forced all Monroe programing between June and December to become virtual or online. Though this rapid migration to an all-digital platform was unexpected, it has had the benefit of preparing Monroe for a new source of revenue, putting us on a more solid financial footing in 2021.

Good news! There are advantages to these online programs that we can all embrace. They are safer, greener, lower cost alternatives, and without the need for travel post retreat, they allow the immediate application of the Monroe principles into your lives.

We are thrilled to say, that participants in our virtual retreats are reporting “extraordinary adventures.”

"The X27 retreat gave me more than I had hoped to receive. The exercises were wonderful, the instructors superb and the online zoom classroom fun & interactive. Thank you MI and everyone who makes this possible, especially online." - Angela W

A personal video message from me.


Monroe is using this time to adapt and grow and have exciting plans for 2021 which will offer even more ways to explore expanded states of consciousness. Stay tuned for updates.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support of the Monroe Institute!


Be well. Be safe.
