Our origins

Part One

The Tranquility Training Method (TTM) was created with one singular principal in mind. To offer a means of living gracefully in a continually changing world. This sense of grace, is achieved by introducing the willing participant to the deepest parts of themselves through meditation. The benefits of meditation are many and you can read about some of them this site. Click here for more info On Meditation.

The origins of TTM began in December of 2001 when Mark Certo (former recording engineer for The Monroe Institute), began to re-consider the purpose of his life’s work . As a recording engineer and musician, Certo had a profound appreciation of the power of sound to envoke emotional states in the listener. This knowledge had been expanded when in 1988, he had been invited to join the lab team at TMI by the Institute’s founder Robert Monroe. Monroe had become quite well known for several books he had written about his experiences in the Out of Body State. For the next fourteen years, Certo had become deeply involved in the scientific exploration of brainwaves and altered states of consciousness. It was during this time that Certo became instrumental in refining the applications of the Binaural Beat phenomena to induce beneficial states of consciousness.

The Institute is an organization well known for its research into altered states of consciousness like the Out of Body State. During his tenure at TMI, Certo had the great fortune of meeting and working with some of the most fascinating minds in the field of consciousness research. Remote Viewers, Energetic Healers, Astronauts, Scientists, Clinicians in all fields of western medicine, were continually in circulation. “It was a heady time those early days at TMI ”. says Certo with a smile on his face. “People were constantly in the lab being tested on the latest experimental frequencies. There was always a desire to move them higher and higher….further and further in consciousness away from the physical. It was a bit like a party! For me, it seemed like something was lacking in the thinking. The exploration of non-ordinary states of consciousness took precedence over physical life! It was as if the folks who coveted these experiences, were somehow trying to avoid reality, rather than live in it fully.” The serious questions about the origins of these peak expereinces and the truest nature of consciousness were always foremost in his thinking. “What do these expereinces tell us about ourselves?” he would ask regularly as he observed the participants eager for the OBE. “The need to understand that we are more than physical is all well and good, but what about living life to the fullest? How can we use this wonderful technology to improve and empower people to do that?” The answer came years later in the form of The Tranquility Training Method.
