The content of the Exploring Consciousness Workshop was created by the Monroe Institute.


It is usually done on a Saturday + Sundays, and it is a shorter version of the residential Gateway Voyage program.

(Yeah... the famous "Gateway" that was investigated in that CIA report.

This story was also covered on the VICE website.)


But these workshops are not a piece of science fiction. The Monroe Institute has been doing the residential Gateway for more than 40 years.

And the Exploring Consciousness Workshop is an option for getting the initial contact with this experience, and the great news is that it will be available in TORONTO, ON.

What do we do in this workshop?

Robert Monroe, founder the Monroe Institue, had some "interesting experiences". But his motto was “You do not need to BELIEVE in anything that I am telling you. You should go and find for yourself. Then it will be a KNOWING, instead of a BELIEF”.

That is the key principle behind the workshop: to provide tools and experiences that allow people to find their own answers, and to use this to improve their lives.

In this program we use some audio tracks developed by Monroe called Hemi-Sync®, which are special frequencies that facilitate the synchronization of both hemispheres of your brain. By listening to Hemi-Sync®and to some vocal guidance during the exercises, the participants are able to reach states of consciousness that are very relaxing and similar to advanced states of meditation. (But in this case you do not have to spend years in a monastery sitting quietly in Lotus position!).

We call these states Focus 10 (“Mind awake, body asleep”) and Focus 12 (“expanded awareness”).

What are the benefits?


Every person will get a different result when practicing these exercises in the workshop and also later, at home. Some people report benefits like:

    • great physical relaxation
    • stress reduction
    • better sleep
    • more energy for daily life
    • increased insights, synchronicities and creativity
    • connection to a broader Consciousness
    • no more fear of death

In some particular cases, there are also reports about development of intuition, connection with inner guidance and less frequently, out-of-body experiences (OBEs).
