Our friend Haley, from the HumanCurrent Podcast, had a great chat with IONS fellow Dr. Rupert Sheldrake at the 17th International IONS Conference. Dr. Sheldrake is an author and researcher in the field of parapsychology. He talks with Haley about discovering, after years of in the field research, that paranormal activity is actually a very normal occurrence. Dr. Sheldrake states in his interview that “our minds are more extensive than our brains.”

Angie and Haley, the hosts of the podcast HumanCurrent, recently attended the IONS 17th International Conference. Gifted their tickets from friend Doug, they describe their introduction to IONS and conference presenters and attendees as being “amazing” and “transformational.” To quote Angie, “I’ve been to a lot of conferences in my time, and I’ve never been to a conference quite like the IONS conference. It’s no wonder Doug has gone so many times!”
