Hemi-Sync Meditation

I am more than my physical body.....



The Monroe Affirmation

I am more than my physical body.

Because I am more that Physical Matter, I can perceive that which is greater than the Physical World.

Therefore, I deeply desire to Expand, to Experience, to Know to Understand, to control, to Use such greater energies and energy systems as may be beneficial and constructive to myself, those close and near to me, and all of Humanity.

Also, I deeply desire the Help and Cooperation, the Assistance the Understanding of those Individuals whose Wisdom, Development, and Experiences are equal or greater than my own. I ask their guidance and Protection from any Influence or source that might provide me with less than my stated desires.

The Monroe Institute - Research and Exploration of Human Consciousness


  The Monroe Institute (TMI), headquartered in Faber, Virginia, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the personal exploration and understanding of human consciousness. Local chapters are an extension of the Institute's outreach program developed to support TMI graduates and those interested in using Hemi-Sync to explore and expand their own personal journey and connection to our Higher Selves or Guidance. 

     Robert Monroe, author of Journeys Out of the Body, founded
the Institute over 30 years ago to support further research into and the exploration of human consciousness, endeavoring to make the experience more accessible to individuals through the use of Hemi-Sync, a patented and clinically proven method of using sound-engineered binaural beats to facilitate accessing different levels of consciousness including, but not limited to, the out-of-body state and a deeper state of meditation.

     The mission of the TMI Amelia Island Chapter is to offer a network of support to those who are graduates of TMI programs or outreach workshops. We also welcome members who are familiar with or interested in TMI and Hemi-Sync and are interested in exploring its wide range of applications for human spiritual evolution. The Monroe Institute has a well-designed website that is expansive and informative that you can access through our website under the "Links" tab or through the link below.

About Hemi-Sync®

Revealing Research for Peak Human Performance

Robert A. Monroe, founder of Hemi-Sync, is internationally known for his work with audio sound patterns that can have dramatic effects on states of consciousness. Monroe observed, during his early research, that certain sounds create a Frequency Following Response in the electrical activity of the brain.

Those observations led to some remarkable findings dealing with the very nature of human consciousness. Researchers learned specific sounds could be blended multilayer audio signals, which act together to create a resonance and sequenced to gently lead the brain to various states ranging from deep relaxation or sleep to expanded states of awareness and other "extraordinary" states. This compelling research became the foundation of a noninvasive and easy-to-use audio-guidance technology known as Hemi-Sync®.

The audio-guidance process works through the generation of complex, that is reflected in unique brain wave forms characteristic of specific states of consciousness. The result is a focused, whole-brain state known as hemispheric synchronization, or Hemi-Sync®, where the left and right hemispheres are working together in a state of coherence. Different Hemi-Sync® signals are used to facilitate deep relaxation, focused attention or other desired states. As an analogy, lasers produce focused, coherent light. Hemi-Sync® produces a focused, coherent mind, which is an optimal condition for improving human performance.

One of the leading researchers into brain wave synchrony, Dr. Lester Fehmi, of the Princeton Biofeedback Research Institute, points out that "Synchrony represents the maximum efficiency of information transport through the whole brain." This means that brain wave synchrony produces a sharp increase in the effects of various brain wave states. The production of synchronized, coherent electromagnetic energy by the human brain at a given frequency leads to a 'laser-like' condition increasing the amplitude and strength of the brain waves. It's evident that a "highly integrated brain," a brain, in which both hemispheres are functioning in symmetry, synchrony, harmony and unity, is a key to peak states and peak human performance.

Specific combinations of Hemi-Sync® signals, for example, can help individuals achieve laser-like focus and concentration. Depending on the intended goals, music, verbal guidance or subtle sound effects are combined with Hemi-Sync® to strengthen its effectiveness. Naturally, Hemi-Sync® sleep products incorporate predominately Delta frequencies; learning products predominantly Beta, and so forth. Users remain in total control as these recordings do not contain subliminal messages. Hemispheric synchronization does occur naturally in daily life, but typically only for random, brief periods of time. Hemi-Sync® can assist individuals in achieving and sustaining this highly productive, coherent, brain wave state.

Continuous Innovation

Robert Monroe’s work inspired an entire industry of mind/brain products. After 50 years of research, and thousands of lab sessions, the internationally acclaimed patented Hemi-Sync® process remains unparalleled in its ability to assist us in harnessing our human potential.

Thanks to the cooperation of notable medical institutions and universities, the scientifically and clinically proven Hemi-Sync® technology continues to be the focus of a variety of specialized research projects. In addition, many therapists, physicians, educators, and other professionals use Hemi-Sync® extensively.

Such research is indispensable in revealing the influence of specific Hemi-Sync® sound patterns on consciousness. Over the years, these efforts have resulted in the development of scores of individual products for specific applications such as focused attention, stress management, meditation, sleep enhancement, and pain management, to name a few. 

Hemispheric Synchronization



Hemi-Sync is a trademarked brand name for a process developed at The Monroe Institute. It is a sound-based technology used to create audio patterns containing binaural beats, which are available commercially in the form of audio CDs. 

Hemi-Sync is a patented technology developed by Robert Monroe, founder of The Monroe Institute.  Hemi-Sync is short for Hemispheric Synchronization, or more precisely Brainwave Synchronization.  Monroe indicated, and research confirms, that the technique synchronizes the two hemispheres of one's brain, thereby creating a 'frequency-following response' designed to evoke certain effects, or brain states conducive to achieving various states of consciousness. Hemi-Sync has been used for many purposes, including relaxation and sleep induction, learning and memory aids, helping those with physical and mental challenges, and reaching altered states of consciousness through the use of sound.

      The technique involves using sound waves to entrain brain waves. By playing different but near-identical frequencies into each ear, the brain responds by producing a third sound called a binaural beat that encourages various brainwave activity changes. More simply, it seems to make it easier to enter into deeper states of awareness or sleep such as Delta and Theta wave states.

     Replicated, double-blind, randomized trials on anesthetized patients have found Hemi-Sync effective as a partial replacement for fentanyl during surgery. A similar study found it ineffective at replacing Propofal however. This is representative of much of the on going research in the Professional Division of The Monroe Institute which hosts a yearly conference where researchers can present their findings. As yet, most research-based, practical applications of Hemi-Sync in a professional setting seem to be most effective in psychotherapy and surgical patient populations.

Robert A. Monroe - A pioneer in the exploration of human consciousness


     Robert Allan Monroe (October 30, 1915–March 17, 1995) was a sound engineer and radio show writer/producer who became known for his research into altered states of consciousness. His 1971 book Journeys Out of the Body is credited with popularizing the term "out-of-body experience". In 1978 Monroe founded The Monroe Institute, which carries on his work after his death. 

       According to his own account, while experimenting with sleep-learning in 1958 Monroe 
had his first out-of-body experience. He recorded his account in his 1971 book Journeys Out Of The Body and went on to become a prominent researcher in the field of human consciousness. 

     Monroe later authored two more books, Far Journeys (1985) and Ultimate Journey (1994). In 1978 he founded The Monroe Institute, a non-profit education and research foundation describing itself as being "devoted to the exploration of human consciousness".


      In 1975 Monroe registered the first of three patents using audio techniques designed to stimulate brain functions until the left and right hemispheres became synchronized. Monroe held that this state, coined Hemi-Sync (hemispherical synchronization), could be used to promote mental well being or to trigger an altered state of consciousness . 

     Monroe's work was based on an earlier concept of binaural beats, first discovered in the early 1800s, but his work in the field expanded our understanding of this phenomenon. He went on to develop wide-ranging applications for Hemi-Sync, such as expanded awareness, altered states of consciousness, more focused concentration and learning and positive behavior change. 

    Remote Viewing 

      During the cold war "Stargate" was the United State's venture into the exploration of remote viewing as a tool of national defense. Army officers from the program worked with Robert Monroe in developing their facility of expanded states of awareness as part of their training. 

     Monroe's interests and research in the Out of Body Experience (OBE) had extended into the now accepted scientific scope of Remote Viewing. Through this he formed long lasting personal friendships with U.S. Army officers, Frederick "Skip" Atwater, and Joseph McMoneagele. 

     Both men would go on to become quite skilled in remote viewing and even took it into the remote past and future. They later became associated with research and study at The Monroe Institute, where Skip Atwater for years served as research director and is now the president of The Monroe Institute.  Joe McMoneagele, now married to Monroe's step daughter, frequents the campus as a guest speaker and trainer of remote viewing. 

     Both Skip and Joe have authored intriguing accounts of their personal experiences. They write in depth about their work with remote viewing, The Monroe Institute and the incredible impact this had on their spiritual development.
