An accomplished economist, international traveler, musician, well-loved spiritual devotee, and mentor, Ms. Schilberg led a rich and varied life. She was a true noetic explorer who nurtured personal transformation in herself and others.

What inspires our biggest innovations and transformations? Could these AH-HA! moments have anything to do with the science of psychic phenomena?
When attempting to make positive changes in our lives, we often approach transformation in a fragmented manner. For example, the care of our physical wellness may be focused on the gym or our physician, while our mental and emotional wellness is buoyed by family and friends or psychotherapy, and spiritual concerns may be addressed by organized religion or a spiritual practice. Yet there is a growing awareness that paying attention to physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the self in concert with one another may create exponential shifts in our lives.
IONS scientist Dr. Garret Yount, along with collaborator Dr. Dawson Church, is doing a series of exciting experiments on the effects of Emotion Freedom Techniques (EFT) on biochemistry and gene expression.
EFT is a noninvasive technique that uses elements of cognitive therapy and exposure therapy, and combines them with acupressure. It is one of several modalities that are considered “energy healing” techniques.
