Sometimes we encounter moments or periods of life that are so potent, and so full of potential, that they transform our consciousness, fundamentally shifting our worldview, our motives and priorities, and how we relate to ourselves, others, and the world.  Where we have been limited, we expand. We become more open, balanced, and aligned with our true values, and compassion for self and others arises more naturally.

Through lecture, video, discussion, creative process, and deeply embodied experiential play, IONS President/CEO Cassandra Vieten weaves scientific research with wisdom from the world’s spiritual traditions and your own inner wisdom to guide you in exploring these deep shifts in consciousness and how to use them for personal transformation during this special Living Deeply workshop.

No matter who you are, where you come from, or what your current transformative path is—whether you seek to transform your life completely or simply make adjustments to add richness and depth—learning more about the terrain of consciousness transformation can not only give you a map, but also can help you become the cartographer of your own journey.

About the book and DVD

Cassandra is co-author of Living Deeply: The Art and Science of Transformation in Everyday Life, a book that moves spirituality off the mountain top and into your daily step at a time. It reveals the perennial wisdom across religions, cultures, and traditions that can help you to live more fully and deeply. Based on a decade of research, this book offers a roadmap to creating deep and lasting transformation in your life.  As ancient wisdom converges with the latest scientific understandings of the world, this book offers new answers to the age-old questions of "who am I?" and "what am I capable of becoming?"
