An important part of IONS mission is to encourage society’s institutions to pay more attention to the connection between science and spirituality to ease suffering and promote thriving. As part of this, we have been engaged in a collaborative effort to help providers and policy-makers in the field of mental health care recognize the importance of spirituality in most people’s emotional and psychological lives.
Monday night I received the news that our beloved Bob Blackstone had passed away.
When he returned from space forty-five years ago, Apollo 14 Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell committed his life to supporting a sustainable future. He worked tirelessly to understand and promote what he viewed as an absolutely necessary collective shift in consciousness.
Happy holidays! As the President of IONS, and a donor myself, I hope you'll consider joining me in including the Institute of Noetic Sciences in your year-end giving. If you haven’t already, please make a contribution to IONS before the end of the year.
