The Heart of Money

By Nancy "Scooter" McMoneagle
Executive Director and President, The Monroe Institute

What is the place of money in our lives? Of what importance is it in the overall scheme of things? Why do some consider money (talking about it, asking for it, accumulating it) as "bad" compared to the "good" of spiritual pursuits? Like many people raised in a Christian household, I learned that money was a delicate subject.

It's the ultimate hedonistic playground.

Rita's Gift

by Frank DeMarco

My life has been deeply affected by my experiences with the Institute and the wider Monroe community. I met Bob Monroe in 1989, did Gateway three years later, did other TMI programs, lived on the New Land adjacent to the Institute for 13 years, did two dozen booth sessions (see below), and wound up writing several books about what I learned there.

Miracles Do Happen

By Nancy “Scooter” McMoneagle, Executive Director & President

I have the great honor of hearing about and seeing miracles unfold every day at The Monroe Institute. People from all over the world come to the Institute for various and deeply personal reasons. Often they bring a desire for a certain experience. An awakening.  A knowing.  A shift.  Transformation occurs on a routine basis.

How Gratitude Lights My World

By Nancy “Scooter” McMoneagle, Executive Director and President

Digging deeper, I encountered the fundamental lessons in gratitude given to me by Nancy Penn Monroe, my mother. From the time I was a little girl, Mom opened my eyes to the beauty of the world and the power of appreciating it.
