Steve discovered the Monroe Institute in 1992 by reading a book called The Watchers by Betty Andreasson, where the Monroe Institute was referenced in a footnote. Through a series of incredible coincidences, he was signed up for Gateway Voyage within a month. It was a turning point in his life. Bob showed him the way across the canyon between believing and knowing that he is more than his physical body. From that week on his life journey took off in new directions of self-discovery. Over the years of attending the Monroe Institute programs his understanding of reality shifted to enjoyment and wonder tempered with the eye of the tourist perceiving this human life as a vast amusement park with every ride imaginable and no lines.
Taking to heart Bob’s final message to “get it out there” he became active with the LCN (Local Chapter Network) acting as the regional coordinator for the northeastern and southwestern United States. Steve and his wife Deryn have run a monthly Monroe Local Chapter in Phoenix since 2012. In 2013 Steve became a residential trainer at Monroe. Steve is doing everything he can to share the good things he has received from Bob Monroe and the Monroe Institute.
