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. From the world-renowned Monroe Institute, 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 80+ guided meditations, along with personalized recommendations, 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.

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.

Mr. Wesleyan ,


This app is truly exceptional. I have been using it every single day for more than two months and it’s so amazing the amount of benefits I have experienced. The track that I use every day is called “Resonant Tuning”….and with this I have begun to have medium/spirit visitations. I have reconnected with family members, my middle school music teacher who transitioned more than 15 years ago, angels, and students I taught. I can’t wait for a longer version of resonant tuning to be introduced because it’s truly unbelievable how my energy levels are and how it’s expanding my intuitive abilities.

Thank You Monroe Institute

This app is worth its purpose and value. Navigating it was a little tricky at first but it has the functions necessary to find and save the preferred content. So many sources for similar content are available but I have loved what the Monroe Institute was offered even before this app was released. Only minor nuisance is after listening to a program and returning to the app, the screen is shaky, sometimes needing to be relaunched. Other than that, no problems. A great aid for daily enlightenment and relaxation.
