Meet the Experts
F. Holmes Skip Atwater
F. HOLMES “SKIP” ATWATER is the President of the Monroe Institute. Raised in a spiritually oriented family environment, Skip Atwater’s childhood was filled with extraordinary psychic experiences. As a young adult he was guided from within to a career as a counterspy during the cold-war era where he used his natural psychic aptitude as a U.S. Army Counterintelligence Special Agent. He played a key role in the remote viewing intelligence program now known to world by the code name STAR GATE.
For ten years Skip was the Operations and Training Officer for this secret remote-viewing program. He recruited and trained an elite cadre of professional intelligence officers to do remote viewing for the Department of Defense and various members of the national intelligence community. He planned, conducted, and reported thousands of remote viewing intelligence-collection missions.
After retiring from the Army, Skip became Research Director and more recently the President and Treasurer at The Monroe Institute a 501c(3) nonprofit research and educational organization, which uses the patented Hemi-Sync® auditory-guidance system to provide a safe, natural means to alter arousal states,focus, and levels of awareness.
Working in the Bob Monroe Research Lab, he has explored the realms of his own consciousness and adopted a spiritual perspective of everyday life. In his roll as Research Director, he published technical research on methods for expanding consciousness, authored the inspirational book, Captain of My Ship, Master of My Soul, and assisted hundreds of individuals in experiencing and exploring expanded states of consciousness. Skip is also the past president of the International Remote Viewing Association (IRVA), which was organized by scientists and academicians involved in remote viewing together with veterans of the now declassified STAR GATE program. It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership organization that encourages the dissemination of accurate information about remote viewing through a robust website (www.IRVA.org), regular conferences, and speaking and education outreach. They assist in forming objective testing standards and materials for evaluating remote viewers, serve as a clearing house for truthful information about the phenomenon, promote rigorous theoretical research and applications development in the remote-viewing field, and propose ethical standards as appropriate. They neither endorse nor promote any specific method or approach to remote viewing, but represent a responsible voice in the history and future of all aspects of the discipline.
Skip has also been a college instructor, scientific investigator, and human behavioral engineer specializing in the design and application of techniques for cultivating propitious states of consciousness for over three decades.
Early in the 1970s he received an associate degree from the University of New York, a baccalaureate degree from the University of Nebraska, and completed his graduate coursework in counseling psychology at the University of Northern Colorado.

TOM CAMPBELL is a nuclear physicist currently modeling the behavior of large complex systems for NASA, began researching altered states of consciousness with Bob Monroe (Journeys Out Of The Body, Far Journeys, and The Ultimate Journey) at Monroe Laboratories in the early 1970s where he and a few others were instrumental in getting Monroe's laboratory for the study of consciousness up and running. These early drug-free consciousness pioneers helped design experiments, developed the technology for creating specific altered states, and were the main subjects of study (guinea pigs) all at the same time. Tom is the "TC (physicist)" described in Bob Monroe's second book Far Journeys.
Campbell has been a serious explorer of the frontiers of reality, mind, consciousness, and psychic phenomena for the last thirty five years. Using his acquired mastery of the Out Of Body Experience as a springboard, Campbell dedicated his research toward discovering the outer boundaries, inner workings, and causal dynamics of the larger reality system. In February of 2003, Tom published the My Big TOE trilogy which represents the results and conclusions of his scientific exploration of the nature of existence. This overarching model of reality, mind, and consciousness merges physics with metaphysics, explains the paranormal as well as the normal, places spirituality within a scientific context, and provides direction for those wishing to personally experience an expanded awareness of All That Is. As a logic-based work of science, My Big TOE has no basis in belief, dogma, creed, or any unusual assumptions. By demanding high quality repeatable, empirical, evidential data to separate what's real (exists independently and externally) from what's imaginary or illusory; Campbell has scientifically derived this general model of reality.

CAROL VON KAENEL is a Reiki Master who lives and teaches in Saratoga Springs, NY. She provides Reiki treatments and teaches classes for Reiki I and Reiki II. She also trains master candidates. Carol is a member of the Reiki Alliance and was a board member of the Northeast Reiki Gathering.
Carol learned Reiki 16 years ago and fell in love with it. She had been saying for years that she didn't know what I wanted to be when she grew up. She would say this as a joke AND it was true. What Carol finally discovered was that she wanted to teach people how to do this wonderful thing for themselves, to give them access to energy in a powerful and delightfully useful way, to accept responsibility for their own healing - and then to offer it to others, if they chose. HawayoTakata wished that Reiki would become as common as aspirin. We're not there yet, but we're on the way!
