Publisher's Synopsis

Robert Monroe, a pragmatic Virginia businessman, began to have experiences that drastically altered his life. Unpredictably, and without his willing it, Monroe found himself leaving his physical body to travel via a second body to locales far removed from the physical and spiritual realities of his life. He was inhabiting a place unbounded by time or death.


"Robert Monroe's experiences are probably the most intriguing of any person's in our time, with the possible exception of Carlos Castaneda's..."     ~Joseph Chilton Pearce, Magical Child

"Jam-packed with parasitic goblins and dead humans, astral sex, scary trips into mind-boggling other dimensions, and practical tips on how to get out of your body... a cult sensation since 1971."      ~Michael Hutchison, Megabrain

"In order to attain to the Dream of Knowledge we must arouse the critical faculty which seems to be to a great extent inoperative in dreams... Before going to sleep I must impress upon my mind the desirability of not allowing the critical faculty to slumber; it must be kept awake, ready to pounce on any inconsistency in the dream and recognise it as such.

The technique sounded simple enough, so as I prepared for bed I resolved that I would attempt to awaken my consciousness within the first dream I had – that very night. Why not? With high hopes I shut my eyes ... I have no idea how long I’d been asleep – suddenly I was aware that I was dreaming: there was a small white dog which began spinning like a top: a bizarre enough image: certainly a dream image... Wake up! BAM! I was awake. I was wide awake in bed, no longer dreaming, no longer asleep. Awake, and very much still in my body. Well, that didn’t work. I’ll try again.

I dozed off. I saw a huge champagne bottle with a label on it reading: AIR. It began whirling rapidly... Wake up! BAM! I was awake, in my room, my wife sleeping beside me, her face strangely flushed, and beside her in bed was... ME! I was passively floating above my body, and looking outward toward the doorway of our bedroom. Standing there was a young woman, perhaps nineteen or twenty years old, slightly overweight, Hispanic, with a dreamy Mona Lisa smile on her face. There was something wrong with her – a very pale green 'aura' surrounded her head and shoulders, projecting outward no more than two or three inches. She was aware of my presence in a vague sort of way, but seemed quite preoccupied with something. She walked into the hallway. I felt myself floating in that direction – a very strange (yet somehow maddeningly familiar) sensation.

Although the experience was certainly not identical to 'normal' waking consciousness, in terms of being able to differentiate experience, I was as awake as I am now writing these words. I was astounded by what was happening to me and almost overwhelmed with the realisation: 'I’m doing it! I’m projecting!' I felt no fear at all. Indeed, the experience was exhilarating!"
