TMI was founded by Robert Monroe after he started having what he called "out of body experiences." It is comprised of several buildings on land owned by the Monroe family in Virginia, USA. One of its activities includes teaching various techniques, based on Hemi-Sync, in order to expand consciousness and explore areas of consciousness not normally available in the waking state.
A reporter for The Hook, weekly newspaper for Charlottesville, Virginia, who visited the Monroe Institute said, "...with a few exceptions, the only "normal" people with whom I could fully identify were the trainers, who seemed remarkably well-grounded for people whose day-to-day experiences include astral projection and disembodied spirits."
The reporter also concluded that "there is something significant being developed at the Institute. Whether it's just a brilliant guided meditation (complete with trance-inducing stereoscopic sound) or a doorway to a world of spirit entities, I cannot say."

I believe in Robert Monroe. I do have my suspicions about his wife though. Since he died, I just have the feeling that people are now cashing in on his name. I have zero evidence to back this up, it is just how I feel.

My experiences at TMI, beginning 15 years ago, were life-changing, and I have never ceased to be grateful for the opportunity. After I came home I vowed to publish anything by TMI participants that I felt worthwhile. (I was co-owner and chief editor for Hampton Roads Publishing Company.) Among those books were Bruce Moen's five, four by Joe McMoneagle (Remote Viewer 001), one by Skip Atwater, who had helped set up the Stargate program, and several others including my own explorations.
