Weekend Workshops

 

Weekend Outreach Excursion

“Outreach Excursion” is a weekend workshop developed by the Monroe Institute, a global pioneer in consciousness research. Having successfully developed a revolutionary technology enabling the safe and controlled alteration of human brain waves, the Institute has helped thousands of people around the world access profound states of relaxation and expanded awareness. This patented process known as Hemispheric Synchronization or Hemi-Sync®, makes possible the coherent balancing of both hemispheres of the brain into a synchronized harmony of whole-brain thinking.

For most people, the development of inner awareness and expanded consciousness can take many years of disciplined effort, but with Hemi-Sync®, this transcendent state can be achieved in minutes.

Through the use of stereo headphones or speakers, the gentle tones of the Monroe Institute’s Hemi-Sync® technology will peacefully guide participants into deepening levels of relaxation and awareness. It is from this profound state of “mind awake and body asleep,” that one becomes clearly aware that we are so much more than physical bodies.

Hemi-Sync Outreach Workshops have proven effective for:

• Personal Growth & Empowerment
• Enhanced Meditations
• Restorative Sleep and Stress Reduction
• Increased Creativity
• Experiencing Transcendental States
• Facilitating Out-of-Body States

Friday Evening – 7:00 to 9:30 PM, Saturday & Sunday 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM.

Upon completion of the weekend Outreach Excursion Workshop, graduates receive:
• $200 gift certificate for a residential program at the Monroe Institute in Virginia or Vancouver Island.

6-day Residential Programs

 

 

 Gateway Voyage    

“Gateway Voyage” is the world famous six-day residential program created by The Monroe Institute, a global pioneer in consciousness research. Having successfully developed a revolutionary technology enabling the safe and controlled alteration of human brain waves, the Institute has helped thousands of people around the world access profound states of relaxation and expanded awareness. This patented process known as Hemispheric Synchronization or Hemi-Sync®, makes possible the coherent balancing of both hemispheres of the brain into a synchronized harmony of whole-brain thinking.
For most people, the development of inner awareness and expanded consciousness can take many years of disciplined effort, but with Hemi-Sync®, this transcendent state can be achieved in minutes.
Through the use of stereo headphones or speakers, the gentle tones of the Monroe Institute’s Hemi-Sync® technology peacefully guide participants into deepening levels of relaxation and awareness. It is from this profound state of “mind awake and body asleep,” that one becomes clearly aware that we are so much more than physical bodies.
Hemi-Sync Gateway Programs have proven effective for:
  • Personal Growth & Empowerment
  • Accelerated Learning
  • Enhanced Meditations
  • Facilitating Out-of-Body States
  • Supporting Physical Well-Being
  • Restorative Sleep and Stress Reduction
  • Increased Creativity
  • Experiencing Transcendental States
The Gateway Voyage exploration is a prerequisite for a number of graduate programs. Gateway provides tools that enable the development and exploration of human consciousness; deeper levels of self-discovery; expansion of one’s awareness; willful control of that awareness; communication with and visits to other energy systems and realities. On this journey, voyagers’ experiences are enhanced through the use of our Hemi-Sync™ audio support process and focused intent applied in a comfortable, safe environment.
Though there is an opportunity to examine broad overviews regarding consciousness and change, it is up to each individual to discover and reach their own conclusions with the assistance of the course facilitators and within a group setting, as the concept of being more than one’s physical body is investigated and explored.
The Gateway Voyage consists of progressive learning audio-guidance exercises, application sessions, group discussions, and informal lectures. Additionally, demonstrations and videos elaborate on the research and effects of this audio-guidance technology on consciousness, human behavior, thought, and emotions.
Out-of-body states and tools that may be utilized to achieve this particular state of consciousness are covered in the Gateway Voyage, but that is only a small part of the program’s overall scope of self-awareness, self-empowerment and stress reduction. For obvious reasons, we cannot guarantee a conscious out-of-body experience during, or subsequent to a Gateway Voyage Program – but TMI does offer guidance and information about the experience of exploration out of the body.
The program does not use a pass-fail, right-wrong learning model. We encourage the exploration of consciousness from a personal and individualistic standpoint that allows you to determine what is most meaningful and effective for you.
Tuition: $1,995. Includes all meals, lodging, seminar activities, and local airport/ferry pick-up and drop-off.

Lifeline

(Graduate Program)

   (Prerequisite: Gateway Voyage)

Lifeline® is a multifaceted six-day graduate program that provides access to states of consciousness beyond those experienced in the Gateway Voyage® and Guidelines® programs. Its primary emphasis is service to those here in physical matter reality and those There who have made the transitions from the physical and who may benefit from assistance.

Service There is accomplished through becoming knowledgeable about Focus Levels 23 through 27. Focus 23 is often perceived as an area in which certain souls, for a variety of reasons, may become “stuck” following their transitions from physical life. Lifeline participants learn to comfortably make contact with such souls and offer assistance to help them move to Focus 27, the area Bob Monroe described in Ultimate Journey as the Park, or Reception Center, or Way Station. Upon arrival in Focus 27, they are met by loved ones and guides who direct them to the specific areas of the Reception Center most appropriate for their next stages of development.

Participants also are given the opportunity within this program to explore Focus Levels 24, 25, and 26 (the Belief System Territories) and to investigate facets of their own current beliefs and structures for operating within the world. Questions which arise often take the form of “What is my most limiting belief?” and “How do my present beliefs support me in exploring as freely and fully as I would like?”

Perhaps the most significant impact of this week, however, comes from the personal revelations that frequently evolve from those “rescue and retrieval” activities. Beyond the considerable satisfactions of helping others move forward, many participants realize that at the same time they are also retrieving lost parts or fragments of themselves, and thus coming into more wholeness, completion, and balance.

Lifeline participants gain familiarity with additional Focus levels:

Focus 22: where humans still in the physical have partial consciousness, remembered as dreams, deliria, and patterns induced through chemicals.

Focus 23: inhabited by humans who have recently exited physical existence and have not adapted to such change.

Focus 25:  the Belief System territories where those who have exited the physical are residing in a particular belief system.

Focus 27:  the Reception Center, Way Station, or Park, designed to ease the trauma and shock of the transition out of physical reality, and to assist those there in evaluating options for their next steps in growth and development.

Tuition: $1,995. (Includes all seminar activities, meals, lodging, local airport/ferry pickup & drop-off)

Guidelines

(Graduate Program)

(Prerequisite – Gateway Voyage)

The Monroe Institute’s Guidelines program offers another step in the development of a more complete understanding of self. In addition to exploration of your Total Self and creating an ongoing communication with your Inner Self Helper, the program provides orientation exercises to support the experience of out-of-body states. Training in the use of a special “healing” energy — either individually or in a group — is also an aspect of Guidelines.
The theme of Guidelines is to assist in learning methods in which communication can be established with distinct and different intelligences. Whatever you call such intelligence (e.g., Total Self, Inner Self Helper, Guide, Universal Consciousness, etc.) it can be any constructive source that has an overview beyond your normal physical perception.
In addition, Guidelines encourages the practical application of such communications and states of consciousness. With practice, a person can learn to quickly access whatever information is needed. Our goal is to make such lines of communication as open, direct, and natural as possible, so that during a business meeting, for example, one can calmly and serenely access the communication skills learned and apply them appropriately within the context of the situation.
A more complete understanding of self cannot be more appreciated than from the out-of-body perspective. Realizing that you exist apart from the physical is but one step on what Bob Monroe called the Freedom Route, a journey of life without fear in which you can achieve your greatest potential. The out-of-body orientation exercises included in the Guidelines program are designed to help you comfortably and safely begin this process. Not all participants consciously realize this subjective state while at the program, but these exercises could be your first opening to a realm far beyond the narrow confines of your physical body.
The Guidelines program consists of a series of unique exercises which provide training in developing these lines of communication. Following a review of Focus levels 10, 12, 15, and 21, participants learn:
  • to move confidently into and through Focus levels 23, 24, 25, 26 and finally to Focus 27
  • to achieve the state where nonphysical communication and out-of-body experiences can occur.
  • means and methods of establishing contact with other energy forms.
  • to retain full awareness and memory of the communication and experiences achieved.

    Exploration 27  

    (Graduate Program)

    (Prerequisites:   Gateway Voyage, plus a Guidelines   (or)   Lifeline program)

Exploration 27 provides the means for a week of immersion within Focus 27, and an introduction to some of its many functions. This is a week of pioneering, cutting-edge explorations and research.
On the last night of the Lifeline program, Bob Monroe was fond of meeting with participants, taking great delight in encouraging them to describe the nature of their experiences in Focus 27. His own journeys had taken him mostly to the Park and Reception Center; clearly, this was a much vaster area than he had previously realized, with many unique opportunities for further cutting-edge exploration.
While visiting the Education Center, Healing and Regeneration Center, and Planning Center, participants receive information relevant to their own personal quests as well as insights related to the “larger picture.” Special features include visits to the center of the Earth – a sacred journey often filled with new insights and appreciation for our Mother and her many precious gifts.
Exploring the very foundations of human consciousness, participants safely venture into previously uncharted territories. Focus 34/35 is the area of the “Gathering” described by Bob Monroe in Far Journeys, and its exploration frequently evokes new perceptions and sensations, and a singular quality of unity and oneness. Bringing the experiences from There and integrating, firmly anchoring them Here, allows for a particularly satisfying and rewarding conclusion to these multi-faceted adventures.
Tuition: $1,995. (Includes all seminar activities, meals, lodging, local airport/ferry pickup & drop-off)

Lucid Dreaming Intensive

Bay View Retreat – Nanoose Bay, British Columbia

The Lucid Dreaming Intensive is a six-day exploration into the world of dreaming awareness. Featuring specially designed Hemi-Sync audio-guidance exercises together with ancient wisdom and cutting-edge brainwave research this powerful program guides participants into states of consciousness where they can consciously interact with their dream environment.

The dream world offers a rich tapestry of experience, insight, creativity and opportunity for personal growth. Within it, we encounter situations where we can challenge our fears and self-limiting belief systems. We can find artistic expression and insight; we can find creative solutions to daily problems. We can also learn to heal ourselves of emotional and physical ailments, whilst developing greater love, compassion and kindness for ourselves and others. We can also have a lot of fun as we perform the physically impossible, such as flying unaided through the air, breathing underwater or venturing into deep space.

In learning to consciously interact with the dream state, we also deepen our relationship with hidden aspects of ourselves. We learn to reclaim that dormant part of our lives and become an integrated whole. We can do all of this because we no longer passively observe or ignore the dream state, but instead we wake up to it and in doing so, become more aware in our daily lives.

Developed by International dream specialists, Luigi Sciambarella and Thomas Hasenberger, this powerful program opens participants to:

  • Becoming aware of, and interacting with the dream state
  • Developing your optimal practice for lucid dreaming
  • Developing greater self-awareness
  • Identifying and releasing fears and self-limiting beliefs
  • Emotional and physical healing
  • Using different states of consciousness for creativity and problem solving
  • Gaining an overview of a greater reality

Tuition: $1,995.   (Includes all seminar activities, meals, lodging, and local airport/ferry pickup & drop-off)
