The Monroe Institute


Explore Consciousness - Transform Your Life
Robert Monroe

The Monroe Institute (TMI) is a preeminent leader in human consciousness exploration. TMI is devoted to the premise that focused consciousness contains the answers to all the questions of humankind. Through the use of technology, education, research and development, TMI has been advancing the experience of individuals in the exploration of targeted and expanded states of awareness for over 40 years.


Founded in the early 1970s as an educational and research organization by inventor and sound pioneer Robert Monroe, TMI offers numerous week-long and week-end residential programs every year on the main campus in Faber, Virginia, and more than 200 programs are presented annually throughout the U.S., Europe, Latin America and Asia.  The centerpiece of TMI learning is the guided use of Hemi-Sync® audio technologies created by Robert Monroe more than 40 years ago and used by millions. TMI program participants learn experientially through this specially designed audio-guidance system while at our 450-acre residential retreat nestled in Virginia’s scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, just outside Charlottesville’s city limits.


Tens of thousands of people have attended the Institute’s residential and outreach programs, and millions have benefited from our educational materials.  TMI collaborates with researchers and clinicians in many areas, especially through university and clinical collaborations, and also with our Professional membership and Board of Advisors. Outcomes of TMI research are both anecdotal and scientific and are available. In addition to Bob Monroe's three books on out of body experiences, TMI has a recently published e-Book entitled “Gateway to the Human Mind.”



Our Vision

The global awakening of humanity.

Our Mission
