Following up on your advice after the morning session, I went back to the Focus level where I felt that I had unfinished business to attend to.

There was the Maya pyramid structure that looked like an inverse U. Directing myself inside the structure, I could see the opening at the top. A large alley was leading to a circular little park with some sort of small fountain or lake in the middle. Beings of light were on each side letting me in this building. They were all focusing on me. Note that I was in a light body (egg shaped – golden coloured as these beings were too). I eventually reached a room where there curved lines (even the windows was curved). Beings in this room had some sort of human features (they took on this form as I did) but I could feel they were not. They welcomed me (no words, just feelings) and gave me (or dressed me up with) a golden cape, a golden hat and a golden staff which form was very uneven. The top part was like a reversed triangle whereas the bottom part was more like a stick. Thus dressed up I looked through one of the windows and saw buildings that had an organic feel. In fact I was finding it very difficult to comprehend the shapes as if they were multi-dimensionally built.

My wife appeared in the room, under a human form. She was happy, smiling to me. No words were said, just exchange of feelings.

This trip was the highlight of the day and I felt its energy for a few days after. As I am writing this message, I can still feel my mind having a different feel, a calm and lucid sharp feel.

D.C. (Excursion/Going Home Graduate)

We had another enjoyable meeting starting with Advanced F10 followed by F12 and then finished again by popular request “connecting with your inner guides”. Learning to move in and out of the different focus levels was commented on and generally found to be beneficial.

The repeat pattern of starting off in F10 with a gradual increase to F12 seems to serve as a reminder of the process ultimately leading to confidence within each of us to journey further within.

Small steps are producing changes and we are gelling more as a group. It is commented by all how the power of the group adds to the overall effect in deepening both the experience and concentration – we are not all falling asleep all of the time! 

J.R. (Local Chapter Group)

Just a few lines to let you know of some of the good effects from the meditations so far. I had not done the ‘Release’ meditation before. The first time I was aware of items put in the energy box getting heavier and larger as I took them out and released them at the end. I felt a lot of relief. The second time I was aware of body armour that sprang off in the releasing. I had put people I was worried about in the box. I realised how anxiety or worry can restrict.

I have resumed painting a large oil that I hadn’t touched for about 3 years. I suddenly knew the next development.

The third meditation we did was retrieving information. I sense my greater flow in painting was due to this one. I’m so glad to be a member and involved in this work. 

A.A. (Local Chapter Group)

I was floating over my building block and could see the city from above, then got higher and higher until I launched in a place with a small door for a small chapel.  Got in and I was found wearing a white priest’s robe, before of the altar; I was singing and gave glory to God! Then I saw above me light and the top of the chapel, I was floating and beings that I could not see clearly, were next to me. For a moment, I saw below me and got scared; I was starting to fall…but these “angels” took hold of me over and launched me into a beautiful landscape, sunny, full of flowers. I was walking and soon was on a hill and could see below the landscape. My dead grandmother came from nowhere; she was young (I never remembered her like that), smiling at me. We sat below of a huge tree, and soon my granddad joined us. He was young with a hat on as I remember him while he was taking care of the garden.

We talked, and I told them my fears and my stresses and she said “don’t worry”, and my granddad was smiling; he did not say anything…he seldom spoke while alive as well!!  Then she smiled at me and I was taken to a brighter place higher because I was floating; it was full of light and in the end of this glorious but simple room, I saw a man sitting in a chair of marble. He stepped down and approached me…I felt it was God, and I lower my eyes and he said in my head, “Don’t do that, I am in you , you are in me, I am in everything and everywhere, don’t lower your eyes to yourself”. He smiled at me, and I felt nice and safe. He open my hand and gave me a gold coin, “take it, you deserve it”, he said, “don’t be afraid. I am here, come and find me; you are secure, your work is great and will be recognized. Soon things will change.”

I felt an electric current all over me; not in a bad sense, it was a great feeling. Quickly I was back to the place I met my grandparents and then even quicker, all the way back from the top of the small church in front of the altar and then out to the door that the two angels were guarding. I came fully back to my bed.

E. C. Excursion Graduate

I attended the weekend excursion recently with my partner who had already attended a previous excursion. I had just finished reading a book on lucid dreaming and I didn’t really know what to expect from the weekend. I had experimented with lucid dreaming with moderate results. That was until I attended the excursion. Being a life success coach I’m already well aware of the importance of goal setting and the excursion for me took this understanding to a totally new level. Over the 2 days I had several lucid dreams to help clarify further just what it is I want from life. If you’re reading this interested in attending a TMI event then my advice to you is to do it and go with an open mind and allow your inner journey to take you to places you didn’t know existed.

Luigi Sciambarella

Residential and Outreach Trainer

My journey into the exploration of consciousness began at an early age. This wasn’t deliberate – answers to some of life’s biggest questions arrived before I had a chance to ask them! My early non-physical and lucid dreaming experiences left me with the knowledge that there is much more going on than what we can perceive through our physical senses.

As I progressed through school and university, I became increasingly interested in understanding different aspects of mind and consciousness; which resulted in obtaining a BSc in Psychology. Whilst the degree itself didn’t really answer any of my questions, it was during my time at university that I was involved in many personal experiments involving hypnosis and Hemi-Sync®. As in childhood, my experiences took off – I had many OBEs and lucid dreams, and have kept a detailed journal ever since.

After being introduced to Bob Monroe’s tools and research, I became very interested in the simplicity of using non-invasive technology to explore and expand human potential. After wonderful experiences on TMI courses, I decided to become an Outreach facilitator to help as many people as possible to experience more of their total selves, whilst enjoying this great opportunity for personal growth.

As a residential facilitator, I’m dedicated to bringing more weekend and residential programs to the UK, and am involved in helping to build an explorer community as the UK Local Chapter Network Regional Co-Ordinator. I also support TMI as a professional member; taking part in experimental research and developing new applications for the technology, such as in the Lucid Dreaming Intensive program that I co-created with Thomas Hasenberger.

Jonathan Reid

Outreach Trainer

I have been fascinated with exploring consciousness since my teenage years when I experienced spontaneous lucid dreams and OBEs on a regular basis.

It wasn’t until my mid-twenties that I began to appreciate the many physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits that such explorations could offer.

Since then I have been a disciplined meditator for the last eight years and my affiliation and subsequent love affair with the Monroe Institute began in 2009.

Having attended a number programs I feel drawn to spread the teachings of The Monroe Institute in England.

I am also a Reiki practitioner and an avid student of Chi Gung.
