GOING HOME

This set of learning exercises on audio cassettes offers a means whereby the individual can reduce dramatically the common fear
of physical death. The result can be, at the least, greater tolerance of the situation. At most, the GOING HOME Subject may learn to
control calmly the sequence of this critical event, allowing it to be one of peace and dignity.
The GOING HOME system also helps family and friends understand better and accept the reality of the death process so as to
provide badly needed specific support at critical moments for the departing Subject. It also includes methods that can be employed to
help them consistently adjust to and recover from the loss of their loved one.
GOING HOME makes the following identifications: one who is in the last and irreversible stages of a terminal illness or injuries is
called the Subject. Those who are in close loving and family contact with the Subject plus care-givers are called the Support Group.

BASICS
GOING HOME has been designed to support the deep spiritual principles underlying major religions without favoring any
particular one. Thus any religious group or organization can utilize GOING HOME, and apply their teachings to it such as they may
find appropriate. Still, the Subject does not have to believe in any specific religion to participate in the GOING HOME process.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
– First and foremost, the Subject learns how much more the human is than simply a physical body. This is achieved through direct
personal experience rather than merely statements or descriptions.
– The experience of guided tours through states of consciousness beyond time-space is a method of exposing the user to options
available after departure from physical life, specifically including audio patterns symbolic of major religions that offer continued
existence after physical death.
– A quiet effort is made to present the entire program as simply a system of remembering. This is based upon the belief that all
humans have deep knowledge of our origins and destination, even if they have been clouded by the now passing concerns and hurry
of ordinary physical life. Thus much of the experience can become familiar territory, again removing fears created by uncertainties.
Therefore, GOING HOME is phrased in terms of helping the Subject gradually remember this deep knowledge whatever it may be.
– Full use is made of the methods that have been in successful application at the Monroe Institute for the past 17 years. These have
been enhanced greatly through participation and support by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, M.D., and Charles Tart, Ph.D., both adding their
experience to the development of GOING HOME.
GOING HOME takes full advantage of simple labels given states of human consciousness through research by the Monroe
Institute, and the experience by thousands of people who have used them as points of reference. Both the GOING HOME Subject and
Support Group learn successively to experience these various states of consciousness while still possessing a living physical body.
The labels are only a means of neutral identification.
FOCUS ONE is a state of physical waking consciousness in the Here-Now portion of time and space we call the Planet Earth.
FOCUS TEN is where the physical body is deeply relaxed enough so that physical sensory signals to the mind are greatly
reduced, yet the mind remains awake and conscious, the physical body in light sleep.
FOCUS TWELVE is a deepening of body sleep, where the mind begins to perceive in ways ordinarily restricted by physical
signal input. It is the beginning of awareness of the freedom human mind-conscious-ness has from complete dependency on the
physical body.
FOCUS FIFTEEN begins the conscious experience of No-Time with progressively greater states of separation of mind
consciousness from physical body signals very similar to the deeper stages of sleep – except that the mind remains awake.
FOCUS TWENTY ONE is the edge of human perception of time-space, equivalent to very deep sleep, yet the mind is fully
conscious and active.
FOCUS TWENTY TWO is the human mind border between time-space and other non-physical states of being. It is often
experienced as a slight change in vibration.
FOCUS TWENTY THREE is the condition of a human being immediately after physical death. It is a very active area filled with
ex-physical human minds in various states of confusion, stasis, emotion – and sometimes waiting or curious.
FOCUS TWENTY FOUR is the site of nonphysical activity generated by simple or primitive religious belief systems of humans
both past and present. As in all belief systems at the non-physical level, there will be very little perception, only a flash or shadow or
two if one knows nothing about the belief.
FOCUS TWENTY FIVE is the expression of the major organized religious beliefs in recent human physical history. Distinctly
separate in activity, here are Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam and others, complete with various denominations
thereof. The visitor touring the area will be attracted only to those which have been and are a strong element in his or her physical life
