This is one of the strangest gigs I ever had.

By this time in my relationship with Bob Monroe, I was beginning to appreciate the amount of trust he was placing in me. I hadn’t really understood just how much trust was being placed in me, until Dave explained the history of The Monroe Institute and Hemi-Sync tm. Before I relay the insights David shared,…

Who is this Guy?

Who is this Guy?

Things were definitely shifting in my inner being. My meditations were taking a turn to include more insight and understanding. I also seemed to be having deeper experiences or, should I say, more transcendent experiences. For those of you who don’t know what that means, it is an experience of the self beyond the self…

Wanna Take A Ride?

Wanna Take A Ride?

Indeed. Things did get more interesting as I continued listening experientially to Bob’s work. The H+ tapes (yes they were all analog tape back then), were each designed to take you into a deep state of relaxation. Once there, you would “instruct yourself” on certain behavior modifications or improvement you wanted to make. The technique…

Here is the instruction to all of you.

Here is the instruction to all of you.

The following week Bob and I went through the production techniques for the H+ series. The job was easy. Somewhat boring, if I may be frank. There were three tape machines involved. One contained a sub mix and was in VHS audio format. I was told that his sub mix had voice and Hemi-Sync. Another…

As instructed, I walked in and was greeted by a man named Phil, whose office was near the entrance. The purple paper sign to the right of his office door, indicated that he was the accountant.  I shook his hand and said “Hi. My name is Mark Certo and I have an appointment with Bob…

Where the hell am I?

Where the hell am I?

So I dialed the number, fully expecting to tell this old fellow that he had reached my studio’s answering machine in error.

For over 10 years now, people have asked me if I was ever going to get around to writing a book about my experiences of personally knowing and working with Robert A. Monroe. Whenever the question would come up, I would simply smile and say, “It’s not likely.” You see I have always felt that…

Peaking Through the Looking Glass.

Peaking Through the Looking Glass.

6/13/93. I was slowly moving through the various levels consciousness that were familiar to me, as I allowed my meditation to deepen. Suddenly, things began to speed up, as if my awareness was racing through a tunnel. At the tunnels end, I found myself in a strange landscape. It was an almost lunar like surface…

Over the course of my many years of experience in teaching and researching meditation, many people have come to me wanting to know; what meditation is, how it can be helpful and how it is best practiced. In truth, the word meditation can mean a lot of things because of the sheer variety of practices….
