Hemi-Sync® Brainwave Patterns

Hemi-Sync® is a patented, scientifically and clinically proven audio-guidance technology refined with more than 50 years of research. Researchers learned that specific sound patterns could lead the brain to various states of consciousness, ranging from deep relaxation or sleep to expanded awareness and other extraordinary states.

The process works through the generation of complex, multilayered audio signals, which act together to create a resonance that is reflected in unique brainwave forms characteristic of specific states of consciousness. The result is a focused, whole-brain state known as hemispheric synchronization, or Hemi-Sync®, where the left and right hemispheres are working together in a state of coherence.

The Monroe Institute

"The Monroe Institute advances the exploration of human consciousness and the experience of expanded states of awareness as a path to creating a life of personal freedom, meaning, insight, and happiness."

The Monroe Institute® (TMI) is a preeminent leader in human consciousness exploration. TMI is devoted to the premise that focused consciousness contains the answers to humankind’s questions. Through the use of technology, education, research and development, TMI has been advancing the experience of individuals in the exploration of targeted and expanded states of awareness for over 50 years.

For more than 50 years people have been attending The Monroe Institute’s residential programs using Hemi-Sync, and acquiring specially-designed tools and techniques to expand beyond the limits of their physical existence.

This self-guided introductory course will introduce you to Hemi-Sync and to the first powerful Focus Levels. You will participate in exercises taking you progressively deeper through Focus 10, “body asleep, mind awake.” Once the physical distractions are removed, you are better able to perceive in “the state of expanded awareness” of Focus 12.

These and other techniques you will receive—if you continue your exploration beyond this program—are the core of Bob Monroe’s unique approach to consciousness development. Once experienced and practiced, there is no limit to how far and how deep you can go or to the benefits you may receive.
