"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."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
