We were deeply saddened to hear of the recent passing of our long-time supporter and former board member, Bokara Legendre of Mill Valley, CA. She will be remembered for her exuberant personality, curiosity, love of adventure, courage and, most of all, her generosity to friends and the causes she believed in, including IONS.
I’m Dean Radin, Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. I have been engaged in scientific research at the frontiers of consciousness for nearly 40 years. I was in graduate school when IONS was founded in 1973, and I thought that its mission, described then as exploring the outer limits of inner space, was just as exciting — maybe even more so — than exploring the limits of outer space.
Magic is one of the most enduring legends of humanity. It's at the core of the esoteric traditions, it saturates the literature of religion and science, and while it has been severely suppressed for millennia, fictional stories about magic are just as popular today as they've ever been. But is magic real?
In this video, recorded at the International Transpersonal Conference, IONS Chief Scientist Dr. Dean Radin presents scientific evidence that the answer is YES, and discusses the implications of real magic for a postmodern understanding of reality.
IONS is creating a future that infuses noetic practices into health and healing. What future are you creating? Join the conversation on Facebook by sharing this video and let your friends and family know the contribution you are making toward a healthier future!
Amidst ever-increasing cultural diversity and social complexity, navigating and thriving in a global society requires we expand our capacity to understand a multitude of perspectives. When we become aware of the lenses through which we experience the world we can become even more compassionate and self-aware leaders of a global society. And as more people shift their own worldview to recognize their essential interconnectedness with the planet and those living on it, the more they are motivated to engage in action and leadership for the greater good.
