1915 - 1995Robert A. Monroe

Robert A. Monroe achieved world-wide recognition as a ground-breaking visionary and explorer of human consciousness. His pioneering research, beginning in the 1950s, led to the discovery that specific sound patterns have identifiable, beneficial effects on our capabilities. For example, certain combinations of frequencies enhance alertness; others induce sleep; and still others evoke expanded states of consciousness.

Assisted by a broad base of specialists in psychology, medicine, biochemistry, psychiatry, electrical engineering, physics, and education, Robert Monroe developed Hemi-Sync, a low-cost, patented audio technology that facilitates enhanced performance. His daughter, Laurie Monroe, continues to extend the frontiers of knowledge about consciousness and the mind's unlimited potential.
Hemi-Sync Research

In co-operation with notable medical institutes and universities, the scientifically proven effects of Hemi-Sync continue to be the focus of a variety of specialized research projects. Because of these efforts, many therapists, physicians, educators, and other professionals use Hemi-Sync applications extensively.
The Monroe Institute, world-renowned education and research organization has integrated the patented Hemi-Sync technology into educational processes that enable personal experiences in focused states of consciousness.
The superb educational programs come from four decades of experimentation, data collection, and analysis in the Institute's research lab. Correlations between subjective experiential reports and objective electronic measurements reveal the influence specific Hemi-Sync patterns have on consciousness.
