From the world-renowned Monroe Institute, access profound states of expanded awareness normally attained after years of dedicated practice to foster greater meaning and purpose, relieve stress, improve sleep, and release unwanted patterns. The guided meditations in Expand feature Monroe Sound Science, our proprietary audio technology that uses targeted soundwave patterns to facilitate unique states of consciousness. Using Expand, you can access the profound wisdom and joy buried deep within your conscious and subconscious minds.

Expand features 100+ guided meditations, along with multi-day mini-courses, guided reflection and journaling, and custom-generated soundscapes that target specific brainwave states. Far from typical meditations that focus on simply clearing your mind of thoughts, Expand meditations encourage active imagination and perception to achieve specific results. Meditation topics include:

- Relaxation & Healing
- Joy & Meaning
- Insight and Intuition
- Sleep & Dreaming
- Nurturing Healthy Relationships
- Creativity & Manifestation
- Beyond the Physical

Expand was developed by the Monroe Institute, the world’s foremost center for the study and practice of expanded consciousness. Monroe is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in the early 1970s as a research and educational organization. In addition to Expand, Monroe offers a wide variety of experiential retreats virtually, on our 300-acre Virginia campus, and in over a dozen countries worldwide.

Quality of life improved - Well worth my time and money!

I have used the calm app and others similar but not gotten much value out of it. I am a fan of guided meditations but do also like the options for directed sound “free range” meditations. I decided to use the trial period to explore multiple meditation modes and really loved the different feelings invoked for healing vs creativity vs beyond the physical. I feel this is helping me break down my fear of the unknown and get in touch with the real me. This app has been worth every penny so far. My only wish is that the Monroe Institute add more guided meditations. I do mix them up and I’m at about 1 hour of meditation a day which has enhanced my quality of life significantly. As a result of this app I decided to read Robert Monroe’s books which further opened my eyes to the infinite. I cannot express my gratitude to the Institute for making this technology and methodology available without having to go to the institute itself. This is a small monetary price to pay for the peace of mind I have received from this application.

So grateful this is available!

I have been using binaural beats technology since 1996, after my first visit the the Monroe Institute and their famous sensory isolation chamber. My experience in that chamber was so unique that I purchased all the available materials and used them to practice. Over the years I narrowed does my use to 5 or 6 tracks on a regular basis, to good effects.
With this app and its ability to custom design your own sessions, I’ve been encouraged to explore more.
This technology complements my Buddhist practice quite well, to get in touch with Inner Peace, calm the chattering mind, connect with repressed feelings…. Highly recommended for anyone on a Spiritual Path.

Wow I’m in awe

I’ve used raw binaural beats for some time before deciding why not just try the originator of the gateway method. It’s 70$.
Started having some profound experiences bordering on odd. Bilocation was pretty neat I sat at a pond near my childhood home and walked back home. People there and everything! What? Although Your results May vary! I think it’s based upon your level of interest ,time spent using the method ,and openness to the idea you are WAY more than you body. I’ve heard there’s a certain level of aptitude involved as well. So do you have anything to lose other than illusion? What can be gained?
