A Biography of Robert Monroe
Part III of a Biography of Robert Monroe (1971 - 1995)
Bob starts a new life at 55! He marries his 4th wife Nancy, publishes 3 books, creates Hemi-Sync and builds and founds the Monroe Institute. He dies in 1995 at 79 years of age.
This is an eventful year in Robert Monroe’s life: At 55 years of age, he marries Nancy Penn and the new big family move to Whistlefield Farm.
There Bob sets up a laboratory with 3 CHEC units, calling it the Whistlefield Research Laboratories.
His first book Journeys Out Of The Body is published.
Later that year he is invited to speak at the Harold Sherman Parapsychology Conference in Hot Springs, Arkansas and at also at Esalen.
Once the Whistlefield Research Laboratory is finished, they start testing the effects of different sound waves on various volunteers. Bob Monroe calls these volunteers explorers.
Mennerich and Campbell were really the heart and soul of that period in Monroe's discoveries and development. Watch this interview of the two about the early experiments and about the spiritual path.
They start holding Hemi-Sync workshops all over the US. First under the name M5000: Bob wanted to reach 5.000 participants in his programs in the next 10 years.
Participants are introduced to Focus-Levels 10, 12, 15 and 21.
Bob Monroe dreams to build an Institute where people can come for residential programmes.
Bob's dream comes true and he buys an extensive new land in Faber, Virginia. For that he sells his apartment blocks and what shares he has left in cable TV. He and Nancy call the new property the New Land.
Soon after the building of their new home and the institute begins.
The Monroe Institute opens its doors1979
The Monroe Institute opens its doors: 22 people can participate in a residential programme at the time. Each participant in their own CHEC unit, with its own light controls, headphones and recorders connected by microphone to the central laboratory.
(By 1987 a lot of plots were sold. But Bob gave up on the community of peace. Many of the new land owners were simply not interested in the expansion of consciousness.)
Outreach programs in other countries and continents are planned to make the Hemi-Sync technology available to people all over the world.
Bob has started writing his last book. Nancy Monroe falls ill. Bob collaborates with Elizabeth Kuebler-Ross on the “Going Home” CD series and they are introduced for sale. (Focus 27)
Bob creates a new residential workshop called Explorer 27, where Focus levels 34/35 are introduced. This is the focus level where participants are taken to the Gathering mentioned in his second book Far Journeys.
