Please join Michael Murphy, IONS scientists Dean Radin and Julia Mossbridge, Esalen Center for Theory and Research scholar Loriliai Biernacki, and Integral Transformative Practice Mastery teachers for an exploration into the further reaches of human evolution. The 3-day conference, October 28-30, will be held at the EarthRise Retreat Center at IONS in Petaluma, CA. Click here for directions to the conference.

This unique conference combines scientific research, theory and practices to help us set the stage for the flowering of our own latent extraordinary capacities, grounded in evolutionary love and Integral Transformative Practice.

Participants will explore the research supporting the reality of extraordinary capacities, the sense of awe and wonder, perception, the generative power of (evolutionary) love and unseen forces of grace.

The conference will showcase ITPx, a program designed to provide tools for practitioners primed for the exploration of their latent capacities in a balanced way. Basic elements of ITPx will be presented for use as part of a pilot program introduced at the conference.

The theme and spirit of evolutionary love will be infused into the conference experience through presentations, small group interactions and embodiment of new practices. As we cultivate our greater human capacities and support others to do the same, we become “midwives to our larger selves” and partners in the universal advance.
