With the recent societal regressions toward political polarization, isolationism and nationalism, threats to civil and human rights, reductions in environmental protections and broadening of economic inequality, it can be difficult not to despair. Those of us who are activated to make a difference, including myself, can find it difficult to avoid ranting, raging, and insulting their opponents. Even the most positive people I know can shake their heads, look at the ground, and shrug their shoulders when assessing our current situation.

A distinguished-looking woman in beautiful African attire approached me with an odd mix of confidence and trepidation.

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.
