If you don't have time to meditate, how are you supposed to become more consciously aware?    And how do you learn techniques that actually work in your busy everyday life when you need them to?

For most people, developing inner awareness takes years of disciplined effort and unpredictable results.

Even when you learn from a highly skilled teacher who uses a well organized system, it still takes time to get it right, because most teachers can only teach you what to do. They can't get inside your mind and body to show you how it actually feels when you do it correctly. 

 So they tell you to sit...and sit... and sit until you eventually gain enough direct experience to know what works and what doesn't.

There are many benefits to be gained from long-term practice of meditative techniques that you will learn in this Monroe Institute Excursions workshop. Instead of practicing by trial and error, you will learn to practice actually being in the states of awareness you want?

You can, if you are introduced to the states you seek from the very beginning. This is what we are trying to bring to you with this workshop.


The cost of the workshop is $225.
Early registration is $175 four weeks prior to workshop start date, and $200 two weeks prior and after the two date,the full $225 until the start date.
Workshop repeaters cost will be $150

Taking the workshop a second time can powerfully reinforce the techniques and meditations that you learned the first go around.

A full description of the Excursion Workshop with detailed hour to hour content of the program is below.

This is an intensive weekend workshop designed to provide you direct experience with different states of consciousness and the tools for quickly accessing them in your daily life.

Here’s 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 super-conscious in an exercise designed to connect you with your Higher Self.

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

A simple way to tune into the natural flow of energy around you

How to deal with distracting thoughts and emotions

A powerful affirmation that has helped tens of thousands of people to expand their awareness

Memory devices to help you shift levels of awareness with a single thought

How to directly experience and use your personal energy fields

An age-old method for quickly charging your energy field

What it feels like for your body to be asleep while your mind remains completely awake and alert

A way to access inner guidance and solve problems with a single breath

How to release your fears and reclaim the personal strengths your fears were blocking

You will 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.

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 breathing techniques and 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 (see How Hemi-Sync works below)
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.

How Hemi-Sync Works

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 40 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,
Hemi-Sync has been used for many years for the objectives listed below:

Stress reduction and relaxation
Sustained focused attention
Enhanced creativity and visualization
Creative problem solving
Emotional healing and releasing fears
Perceiving higher energy systems
Improved access to inner guidance
Experiencing your Higher Self
