Luigi Sciambarella
Residential and Outreach Trainer

My journey into the exploration of consciousness began at an early age. This wasn’t deliberate – answers to some of life’s biggest questions arrived before I had a chance to ask them! My early non-physical and lucid dreaming experiences left me with the knowledge that there is much more going on than what we can perceive through our physical senses.

As I progressed through school and university, I became increasingly interested in understanding different aspects of mind and consciousness; which resulted in obtaining a BSc in Psychology. Whilst the degree itself didn’t really answer any of my questions, it was during my time at university that I was involved in many personal experiments involving hypnosis and Hemi-Sync®. As in childhood, my experiences took off – I had many OBEs and lucid dreams, and have kept a detailed journal ever since.

After being introduced to Bob Monroe’s tools and research, I became very interested in the simplicity of using non-invasive technology to explore and expand human potential. After wonderful experiences on TMI courses, I decided to become an Outreach facilitator to help as many people as possible to experience more of their total selves, whilst enjoying this great opportunity for personal growth.

As a residential facilitator, I’m dedicated to bringing more weekend and residential programs to the UK. I also support TMI as a professional member; taking part in experimental research and developing new applications for the technology, such as in the Lucid Dreaming Intensive program that I co-created with Thomas Hasenberger.
