Publisher's Synopsis

In 1958, a successful businessman named Robert Monroe 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 life or death.

Monroe recorded these experiences in two bestselling, landmark books, Journeys Out of the Body and Far Journeys. Ultimate Journey, his final and career-defining work, takes us further than we thought possible - and reveals to us what it all means.

Ultimate Journey charts that area which lies "over the edge", beyond the limits of the physical world. It presents us with a map of the "interstate" - the route that opens to us when we leave our physical lives, with their entry and exit ramps, their signposts and their hazards. It also tells us how Monroe found the route and traveled it, and uncovered the reason and the purpose of this pioneering expedition. It is a journey that reveals basic truths about the meaning and purpose of life - and of what lies beyond.

Robert Monroe combines records of his own experiences with those of others who have followed his route at the Monroe Institute in Virginia to make Ultimate Journey an exhilarating reading experience - the masterwork of a daring and original thinker and explorer.


"Certainly a challenging and exciting book... I could barely put it down."        ~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Life Lessons


Next I focused on where I had found Dick after his death. He had been a good doctor and friend in my early days in New York. When I had seen him, he had been in deep conversation with several other men in a large room, and he had simply given me a wave of acknowledgment. He had looked half the age he was when he had died.

I reached this same large room with no problem. To my surprise, it was not empty. Two normal-looking men in business suits were standing by a table in casual conversation. I approached them carefully.

"Excuse me, but could you give me any information about Dick Gordon?"

They turned and stared at me wide-eyed. Then the taller one spoke.

"I'm sorry, we weren't expecting you. Do you need to sit down? Are you tired?"

"No, I'm fine. I only want . . ."

"Wait a moment, George," the second man interrupted. "This one's different. Look!"

They examined me intently. George shook his head.

"You still have a living physical body?" I hesitated.

"Well, yes, I do. But . . ."

"And you know you're not dreaming?"

"Yes, I know. I'm trying to . . ."

"Amazing!" George reached out, grabbed my hand, and shook it vigorously.

"I've heard about people like you but you're the first we've met! What about this, Fred?"

"But . . . exactly what is this place?"

It was Fred who replied. "This is a place where certain people come when they've died. With a little help sometimes. Most of them don't know it exists."

"What people?"

"Medical types. Physicians, surgeons, and so on."

"Why do they come here?"

"To calm down after the big change," George explained. "They need it especially because they have been so locked in to keeping patients alive. But they recover quickly in a familiar environment. Look around."

I became aware that I was in a typical doctor's office— waiting room, with chairs, coffee tables, and stacks of old magazines. Through a glass window I could see the nurse's desk and file cabinets. An inner office with desk and chairs was visible through an open doorway, and on the far side of this I glimpsed a room with examining table, scales, and other equipment.
