Paul Rademacher is Executive Director of The Monroe Institute, in Faber Virginia, known for its pioneering work in the exploration of human consciousness. The Institute conducts intensive 6 day and weekend programs that help participants to experience profound states of inner exploration and expanded awareness.
Mr. Rademacher’s interest in consciousness exploration was sparked by a mystical experience that resulted from a construction accident in 1981. That profoundly life altering event convinced him to enroll at Princeton Theological Seminary from which he graduated with a Master of Divinity Degree in 1985.
During his 15 years of service as a Presbyterian pastor, he studied extensively in the fields of consciousness and spirituality, seeking to bring together traditional meditation techniques with contemporary expressions of spiritual exploration.
He is also a former building contractor, designer, and journeyman carpenter. Paul is an experienced public speaker, seminar leader, artist, closet musician, husband and father of three. His book, A Spiritual Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe: Travel Tips for the Spiritually Perplexed, was released April, 2009 by Hampton Roads Publishing.
