About TMI Courses…

Throughout all the stuff I’m posting I will frequently refer to some Monroe Institute onsite courses.  I thought I should tell you something about those rather then make the reader decipher the TMI site’s lingo/marketing.  The courses I’m refering to are 6 night/5 day courses.

First when one is at the institute site, one will be taking courses at one of the two campuses there, ie presuming we’re talking about the homeland, Faber, VA.  Over time hopefully one gets to be at both.  I love being up at Bob’s house that was remodeled into one of the two campus center at the Virginia home site.  When one is at a course everything is provided.  One shares a room with a roommate.  Its actually great.

One’s bed is a CHCK unit. One sleeps and trains in the CHCK unit called a ‘check unit’.  Bob had a meaning for the acryon CHCK which I forget. The CHCK unit is wire with sound, head phones, lights, and communications implementing the Hemi-Sync session that pursues various purposes and tasks.

While at a course all meals are provided; this is completely room and board.  Oh there is Yoga in the mornings if your into that. One then works through perhaps 4-6 sessions per day peppered about meals. Debrief and discussion sessions follow the lessons.  There is a free time in the afternoon, then the students go back to work in more sessions or conference materials in the late afternoon and evenings.

The reader will find more specific information about a host of courses at the Monroe Institue website.

Gateway Voyage

is the flagship introduction and prerequisite to all advance course.  In this course one takes the first step outside oneself to learn about and explore other states of consciousness – other awarenesses; many are all about you, some are far reaching.  This course is confined to awareness within the Earth Life System (ELS). Focus levels 10-21 are introduced in this course. See resource section for my blurb about focus levels.

Students go to the Institute for different reasons.  For most, they seek their first psychic experience.  Others may have some psychic experiences and wish to build skill sets, learn the basic tricks of the trade.  There are of course many other courses that TMI offiers, but Gateway Voyage introduces one to the ‘core’ curriculum and again it is the prerequisite to the advanced courses.

As an aside, I believe the Gateway Voyage course is offered roughly 36 times per year in 12 countries around the world last count.

MC Squared

This course was developed by Dr. Joe Gallenberger originally for an on-site 5 day/6 night course at TMI.  The course is also available from Joe’s company http://www.SynCreation.com as a home study program.

In a nutshell Joe’s course is about psychokinesis and I know a few people that have bent spoons while at TMI.  Other tasks such as lighting LEDs, effecting plant growth, controls of throwing dies are investigated. Besides psychokinesis there is in general an emphasis on what many call ‘manifestation’ technique.  This continues to be a popular course at TMI.

Event Horizon

I will only say that when I took this course I found this course no-way resembled the TMI catalogue description or TMI handout materials. That was just before TMI acquired the course from Bob Holbrook. This program uses SAM technology rather then Hemi-Sync but not all SAM is the same.

Generally when one takes a course the vast majority of people walk away with life changing or very strong experiences which results in many people coming back repeatedly. Not so with Event Horizon; just about no one had any experiences throughout the whole week!

During the course Bob Holbrook discussed how this course was developed out of his clinical work with PTSD patients. I found the SAM in this course to be mind crushing; crushing one down into deep tranquilized relaxation. Another student who has taken other TMI courses and some with me stated that this SAM was not like other SAM based courses she had taken from TMI. She too had no experiences.

The skills taught in this course may be useful for persons suffering panic or anxiety disorders, someone that needs deep relaxation encoding therapy but I cannot recommend this course to anyone else, anyone that is pursuing ‘cosmic travel’ so-to-speak.

Now in TMI’s defense, TMI has standards for their courses. It is possible now that they own the course they have made changes to the program, but I would call and get a guarantee regarding what is actually in the course cuz it could also well be that nothing has changed in the course. The take-home CD is a very nice composition. I only use it when all I intend is to deeply relax.

Save your money for some other class.


This course continues to explore aspects in the Earth Life System (ELS) which does include the dead, the region of the heavens, hells and that in between (that which TMI calls the Belief Territories), and then focus level 27.  

Focus 27 is in high consciousness of the Earth Life System. It possesses aspects, characteristics, and facilities such as deep spiritual/soul healing, reorientation/adaptation (education/libraries), planning aspects, and more. In this state one may encounter those (lets say individual beings that are not human) specifically interested in assisting the human spirit in the ultimate migration beyond what some may call Heaven itself. Yes, creation is fair more prolific, rich, diverse, and extensive then we can possibly image or comprehend, or have previously been told.

Most come to Lifeline to learn about and perform soul-retrievals for those stuck in the moments after their death unable to apprehend the wonders around them so that they may move on to the truly Wonderous.  With this activity and environment one may excounter all that is peripheral to that.  One of your tasks during the course may be given only a deceased person’s name to go find that soul and bring back details or message? And yes one can do that but likely not all the students will do that. This course pertains to focus levels 22-27.

The students that come to this course are motivated to pursue these new psychic skills in their lives; hoping to provide some service in this new awareness – the deeply empathetic student.  Where as in Gateway Voyage many come to see what they may experience so in Lifelines one encounters fellow students that are very serious about this stuff.

The demonstrated success rate when I took Lifelines was about 5% as I was the only one to have a validated contact in that class. The second time I took the course two validations out of eleven people were successful. In sum 5-20% of soul contacts come back w/ proof. I recall generally everyone being elevated in marvelous things, most contacting souls one way or another. Lifelines isn’t only about retrievals, so near all people are glad they went to this course.

Exploration 27

This course explores in more detail the characteristic aspects of the focus 27 awareness level environment. One may do a soul-retrieval if that comes along but that is not the purpose for this course.  This course seeks to interact specifically with higher agents/aspects that service that state beyond the Belief Territories at the limits of the Earth Life System.

In this course one will also get their first introduction to focus levels 34/35.  In these levels one has stepped outside the Earth Life System beyond even our dead and encounter the non-human, non-Earthly awarenesses whether physical or non-physical creatures.

Those who are students with you in this course are continuing their committment to this area of study.

Starlines I & II, Starlines Reunion

This area is far beyond the limits of our ELS system.  These courses are only offered once or twice a year in the USA.  Even with the TMI Global organization these courses are very limited in offering. Your classmates: one will likely know some classmates from earlier courses and these are called advanced graduates; why I don’t know. The experiences in these course are cosmic in scale. It is beyond our science fiction. The forces have scope of interest far beyond Earth.  These courses explore focus levels 34/35 through 42 and to 49.
