The Monroe Institute
Founded by Robert Monroe, the Monroe Institute in Faber, Virginia, in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Monroe was the author of "Journeys Out of the Body." His institute specializes in studying altered states of consciousness. I attended the week-long Gateway program there in June 2010.
