Ultimate Journey

Robert A. Monroe, Author Doubleday Books $23.95 (303p) ISBN 978-0-385-47207-4
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.)
