Overview

Overview

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 chronicled these out-of-body experiences in two landmark works, Journeys Out of the Body and Far Journeys. Now, in Ultimate Journey, he takes us farther than we imagined possible. Ultimate Journey charts the area that lies "over the edge," beyond the limits of our physical world. Monroe presents us with a map of the "interstate," the route that opens to us when we leave our physical lives, with its entry and exit points, signposts and hazards. He tells us how he found the route and traveled it, and how he uncovered the reason for his pioneering expedition. This 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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Using geographical terms, Monroe ( Journeys out of the Body ) continues his task as guide to ``innumerable people'' who are fearful of out-of-body experiences (OBEs), a phenomenon which, for 30 years, he has been claiming to chart. At the Monroe Institute in Virginia, the author conducts classes on his frequent and voluntary OBEs which have, he maintains, provided him with news of his wife after her recent death from cancer. Monroe argues that, by processes often unintelligible to the uninitiated, he can go on science fiction-like trips to ``anywhere, in any time, past, present or future,'' including earlier incarnations. Monroe foresees a unification of all those who practice OBE and a collective passage through the ``Aperture'' scheduled for the 35th century. His claims are not likely to convince unbelievers. (Apr.)
David Siegfried
Monroe is "the" preeminent explorer and chronicler of out-of-body experiences OBEs as well as founder of the Monroe Institute, a nonprofit research organization devoted to studying expanded forms of consciousness. In both his earlier books, "Journeys Out of the Body" 1973 and "Far Journeys" 1987, Monroe traversed many bizarre highways of the OBE universe, but here he hops onto the "OBE Interstate," taking us along for a wild ride. In Monroe's unending quest for knowledge beyond the usual human experience, he travels both to distant, nearly inconceivable realms and deep within his "core self" to develop what he calls a different overview. Monroe gains much knowledge, but continues to search for the missing "basic," or elemental truth. Often confused by the paradox of it all, he receives clues and information from several guides who also indulge in sarcasm and humor. As Monroe shatters preconceived notions of life, death, God, and the universe, his descriptions can be taken literally or metaphorically, but, either way, there is much here that is thought provoking and insightful.
