The Gateway Voyage teaches the core practices and principles of mental, emotional, and spiritual growth as taught at The Monroe Institute, a non-profit training and research center located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
During Gateway Voyage, participants are introduced to the Hemi-Sync® technology for integrating brain functions. Hemi-Sync uses various sound patterns that entrain brain-wave activity and facilitate hemispheric synchronization. The workshop consists of comfortably listening to exercises that guide participants into profoundly relaxed states, and then progressively into expanded states of awareness. The techniques can produce a centered, calm, and intuitive experience, new insights, guidance, and access to one’s inner wisdom.
Monroe Institute founder Bob Monroe was able to identify combinations of sound patterns that can lead one into altered states of consciousness, thus setting the stage for personal exploration on all levels of being. He created a model of consciousness that is offered during this workshop as a map participants can use for their personal exploration.
There are morning, late-afternoon, and evening sessions during which participants listen to approximately five exercises per day, with discussions before and after each one. There is a long break after lunch for integration and relaxation.
Enrollment is limited to sixteen participants. Please bring a sleeping bag and/or blankets, and a pillow to help you be comfortable and warm while listening to the exercises.
