Mark Certo spoke with me from his home in Atlanta, Georgia. Mark has been studying meditation since 1977 exploring the mind, consciousness and the nature of self. He is a professional musician and sound engineer and worked with OBE legend Robert Monroe from 1988, until Robert's death in 1995, on the art of reverse engineering EEG readings into tangible binaural beat matrices to effect consciousness. During his years at TMI he continued his studies in consciousness from the many disciplines available and produced most of the recorded material in the Institute’s catalog. He has participated as a consultant in various clinical studies, testing the effectiveness of binaural beats to invoke brainwave responses. Because of Mark’s close association with Robert Monroe I took this opportunity to ask a few questions about this highly influential figure in the applied consciousness research field. I feel very lucky to have had this indirect presence of Bob on this podcast via Mark.
Mark is also ideally placed to explain the working of binaural beats to alter out consciousness and induce out-of-body travel, a process originally developed at TMI under the name hemi-sync and we discuss some of the interesting research on correlation between brain waves and states of consciousness. One of the things I really appreciate about Mark’s approach is to go beyond phenomena or remarkable states of consciousness to applying them practically in our life. The tagline for his consciousness development school The Triad Mind is “I know that I am more than my physical body. Now what?”, and that is a question we also explore. Unfortunately there are a few occasions where Mark’s sound disappeared but it is only ever for a couple of seconds and should not stop you from getting a lot of value out of this episode.
I interview people with practical, inspiring, consciousness expanding, heart-centred perspectives on our multidimensional life.
