How can I learn more about The Monroe Institute?

What to bring:
Journal and pen - you will receive a workshop manual which has space for taking notes and recording your experiences. If you have a journal you wish to use, please bring it.

Pillow - Pillow (1 or 2) - bring 2 pillows if you need one under your knees to be comfortable.  You will be seated in a very comfortable lounging type of chair.
Slippers (with non-slip bottoms) or indoor slip-on shoes.
Socks - if your feet sometimes feel cold.
Water bottle - you can refill it during the workshop.  Water bottles will also be provided.
Eye covers - the room will be slightly darkened during the exercises, but if you wish to shut out all light, please bring a sleep mask.

Personal checks, cash, and credit card payments will be accepted.  Payment online is preferred.

Dress for comfort - Wear loose, comfortable, and casual clothes. Dress in layers so that you can adjust depending on your comfort needs during exercises.


Lunch is provided both days and includes sandwiches and salads. If you have special dietary needs, please feel free to bring your own lunch. A microwave is available. I ask that all participants remain at the venue and eat together to maintain the group energy.

Mobile phones and other communication devices - This weekend is a special time for you to focus on yourself, largely free from the demands and concerns of the outside world for two days. Please make all necessary arrangements with family members and others before you
arrive. If you have to use your mobile phone or other communication device, please do so only during lunch.

Photography, video, and audio recording in any form are not allowed.
Alcohol and mind-altering drugs - Avoid using these before the workshop; prohibited during the workshop as they are counterproductive to the Monroe process. Take all prescription drugs as usual.

Smoking is permitted only in location designated.

If you are not familiar with Hemi-Sync, please listen to the Gateway Voyage® Introductory Exercise on the Monroe Institute’s website Free Meditations). Listening to this one or more times will help you to be better prepared for the first Hemi-Sync exercise in the workshop.


Sleep – To the extent possible, come to the workshop well rested. Most participants find the Hemi-Sync exercises to be extremely relaxing and are able to remain alert more easily if they have had adequate sleep.


Accommodations – Please make your own arrangements for overnight accommodations, if needed. Let me know if you would like me to send you some information on local hotels.  Location is very close to Walt Disney World.
