  • The facilitator was excellent - rich, deep training and great personal experiences with Robert Monroe. - H.P. - Phoenix, AZ
  • I have to share a validation that I experienced using techniques I learned in the workshop. I had an epidural for my back today & while I was hooked up to the heart rate monitor I utilized the Monroe techniques. I was able to keep my heart rate at a constant 70 throughout the whole procedure. What a trip :-) Thank You ! - D.M. Gilbert, AZ

How the Course Works

This two-day workshop guides you through a carefully sequenced series of exercises to teach you how to comfortably shift and expand your awareness along a continuum of consciousness that is usually only accessible after years of training and practice.

You’ll use the Monroe Institute’s Hemi-Sync® system to learn how to rapidly achieve, hold, and control different states of awareness so you can access your untapped inner resources and apply them to a variety of areas in your life.

On the first day of the workshop, you learn to put your body to sleep while your mind remains awake. You’ll then learn to switch easily between an inner relaxed calm and normal waking awareness. This state is called Focus 10, and it serves as the foundation for exploring nonphysical energy systems and a great many other states of consciousness.

On the second day of the workshop you send your awareness beyond the physical world and establish a connection with your own inner wisdom so that you can ask questions and receive answers from a deeper Source of “knowingness” that exists beyond your waking mind. You’ll also have the opportunity to experience your superconscious in an exercise designed to connect you with your Higher Self.

Over both days you’ll learn 15 different tools and techniques to help you explore and experience these states

You’ll also have a chance to practice, journal, reflect, and share your experiences with others in the group so that you can offer your insights and learn from their experiences in turn.

A Typical Exercise Sequence

Over the course of the workshop, you’ll participate in 10 distinct exercises designed to take you into different states of awareness where you’ll engage in activities ranging from guided visualizations to problem solving to free time for personal exploration. A typical exercise works like this:

1. First we discuss the exercise so you understand its purpose, what to expect, and how to do it.

2. Next you enjoy the exercise as the Hemi-Sync® system guides you through the experience.

3. After each exercise there is time to journal and discuss what you’ve learned to help you process the exercise and add it to your toolbox.

4. You’ll also have a chance to visit with your classmates during break time so you can make friends and share at a deeper level..

The results of these exercises and tools are highly personal and varied. Typically though you can expect to experience:

  • Deep physical relaxation
  • Improved brain hemisphere synchronization
  • States of greatly expanded awareness
  • Insights regarding issues in your life
  • Better understanding of your own energy
  • Improved access to inner guidance
  • Greater knowing of your Higher Self

The overall goal of the workshop is to help you recognize these new experiences of consciousness and learn to re-access them without the support of the Hemi-Sync® exercises.


Created in the 1960s by Robert A. Monroe, a pioneering consciousness researcher and inventor, Hemi-Sync® is scientifically and clinically proven, patented, audio technology that works by sending a complex blend of different sounds (tones) to each ear via stereo headphones.

The two sides of your brain then work together to “hear” a third signal called a binaural beat that is the difference between the two tones. This is not actually a sound, but rather an electrical signal that can only be perceived within your brain when both sides of your brain are working together. The result is a focused, whole-brain state called hemispheric synchronization or “Hemi-Sync®.”

When you listen to stereo headphones and a sound of 100 Hertz is played in one ear while a sound of 104 Hertz is played in the other ear, your brain “hears” the difference between the two sounds. In this example, 4 Hertz.

When you listen to binaural beats for a length of time your brain waves begin to synchronize according to the frequency of the binaural beat. This is why different combinations of Hemi-Sync® signals can help you achieve different states of consciousness.

These maps of brain wave activity show how listening to Hemi-Sync® can shift your normal random brain activity (left image) to a more focused and organized pattern (right image) enabling you to use more of your brain in an effective way.

Depending on the intended goals, Hemi-Sync® products combine music, verbal guidance or subtle sound effects with Hemi-Sync® to strengthen its effectiveness. Although Hemi-Sync® recordings use a mix of sound frequencies, learning products use predominantly Beta frequencies (14 -27 Hertz) to help you focus with laser-like attention, sleep products use primarily Delta frequencies (0.5 – 4 Hertz) to help you relax and sleep; and so forth.

After more than 50 years of research and clinical-testing Hemi-Sync® has been proven to be safe and effective in a wide variety of applications. While the list of things you can use it for is too long to include here, I’ve personally used Hemi-Sync® for the objectives listed below and found it to be wonderfully effective.

  • Stress reduction and relaxation
  • Sustained focused attention
  • Enhanced creativity and visualization
  • Creative problem solving
  • Emotional healing and releasing fears
  • Improved access to inner guidance
  • Pain management
  • Sound, restful sleep
  • Sustained physical effort


What should I bring?

We’ll be spending a considerable amount of time reclining we provide either air mattresses or lounge chairs that should be quite comfortable but you might want to bring an extra blanket and pillow or two to ensure that you are comfortable. You may also want something to cover your eyes such as a sleeping mask (although, we’ll have a limited number of dark wash cloths on hand).

You’ll want to bring a journal, notepad and pen. If you like to use colored pens/pencils, please free to free to bring. Please note, you will have room in your program workbook to take notes and journal.

You can bring your own headset, if you would like. Although, one will be available for your use. Why would you want to bring your own headset? If you have invested in a well-made or enhanced model, you would want to bring your own. We discourage the use of earbuds. We are not set up for wireless headsets. For some programs, you will have access to an MP3 player during the workshop.

The most important thing to bring is an open mind. We highly recommend that you come without preconceived expectations.

What should I wear?

The dress code for the workshop is: Comfort. We encourage you to wear loose-fitting clothes suitable for extended periods of sitting and lying down.

How do you handle meals?

We will have a 1 hour lunch break each day. Refrigerator space is available. Bring your favorite lunch! Each workshop is different depending on the set up. This will be explained before you arrive. Although, we’ll have water on hand. It’s always a good idea to have water or a water bottle.

Are there any medical considerations?

If you are currently taking any medications it is suggested you continue to do so on your regular schedule. While Hemi-Sync® has many positive applications as an adjunct to wellness, healing and rehabilitation, it is not intended to replace medical diagnosis or treatment. If you have a tendency towards seizures, auditory disorders, or adverse mental condition(s), do not listen to Hemi-Sync® without first consulting your physician.

What does it cost?

The workshop tuition is only $175 (bring your favorite lunch).

The next workshop is not currently scheduled. Please fill out the form to let us know of your interest. Thank you!
