The opportunity to participate in a certified Monroe Institute Outreach program teaching the simple fundamentals of moving into altered states of consciousness is possible through Atlanta Unity Church. The introductory presentation on Hemi-Sync (hemispheric synchronization) technology, which includes an experience with the effects of the technology, will occur on Sunday, February 27, 2011, from 9:30 – 10:45 a.m. The 2 full days of workshop occur on Saturday, March 5, and Saturday, March 12, 2011.
“Hemi-Sync” techniques utilize sounds through conventional speakers or headphones. An electronic tone is played in the right ear, which differs slightly from the tone played in the left ear. The hemispheres of the brain, in turn, work together to create a new tonal wavelength. The result is a focused, coherent mind which improves of human performance and reduces the effects of stress. “Meta-music” is another technique in which the slightly variant tones are imbedded into music. Such techniques have been used in classrooms to help students (especially those with ADD and ADHD) to focus.
Research indicates that participants in this auditory intervention experience expanded states of consciousness without the use of drugs; an increase in intuition; enhanced creativity; being able to hold meditations; the ability to achieve deep relaxation and deeper sleep; enhanced ability to manage pain; and reaching peak experiences of knowing (“Peak and Other Exceptional Experiences During the Gateway Voyage” by Todd J. Masluk, MA, EdM). Long lasting effects include feelings of being more inner directed and spontaneous; living in the present; increased self-acceptance; greater commitment to psycho-spiritual growth; a sense of responsibility for one’s life; greater love for humanity; being more willing to take risks; and an increased desire to help others (“The Benefits of Long-Term Participation in TMI Programs” by Cam Danielson, MA; website for Monroe Institute Outreach program).
