Robert A. Monroe demystified the occult

By recording his out of body experiences with a scientific approach, Bob demystified the natural human states that lay beyond the physical. He popularized the expression Out of Body Experience or OBE in the 1960ies, which until then were widely called astral projection or astral travels.

With his meticulous investigations and experiments, he made it possible for anyone to follow in his footsteps and find out for themselves what lay deep under the wakeful consciousness. By following his path many lost their fear of death.

Hemi Sync Albums for Instant Downloads

Robert Monroe’s mission was to make Hemi-Sync available to anyone in the world. Nowadays there are hundreds of albums available in 10 different languages. Check out the Hemi-Sync Albums.


What drove Robert Monroe?

Owning radio stations and cable TV companies, Robert Monroe became a millionaire by age 40.  He had become a specialist in sound technology and intrigued by the possibility of influencing people’s emotional and mental states with sound.

Could you make a person relax or fall asleep? Could you wake her up or make her super alert with recorded sound and verbal instructions? Could you undo fears? How to influence a person’s state of mind, and help people explore consciousness?

And after a lot of trial and error, together with a team of scientists, Campbell and Mennerich, Bob Monroe figured out how to do just all that.

They experimented around until they rediscovered binaural beats. They realized these binaural tones mixed with verbal instructions and other sounds effect could help people explore deep states of consciousness. Monroe felt that this discovery was so important, that the word needed to get out there. 

To get an idea how this technology works you can listen to a 3 minutes FREE Hemi-Sync trial with the verbal instructions of Mr. Monroe himself.

Robert Monroe’s Legacy

Before Hemi-Sync got released to the public, Monroe and his team had the recordings tried and tested in over 800 sessions with dozens of different volunteers.

Robert Monroe took a patent on Hemi-Sync, and created hundreds of Hemi-Sync recordings. The Monroe Institute was founded and residential courses were offered to the public.

Before he died he split The Monroe Institute from Monroe Products. The Monroe Institute became a non-profit organization to be run by an independent board of directors. Monroe Products became the owner of all the Hemi-Sync Recordings and is run by the family and Robert Monroe’s heirs.
