Extend your noetic experience by joining us at the retreat center, EarthRise at IONS. Relax among the rolling, oak-covered hills for a one- or two-night stay after the conference. Share noetic conversations and healthy, freshly prepared meals. Move deeper into your inner world as you walk the labyrinth. Wander the trails, listen to the birds, and observe the deer as you assimilate all you learned and experienced. Enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded adventurers at the fire pit. Or do nothing but relax in the garden under the shade of the grape arbor. It's all here for you to enjoy.


Jolie Egert is an environmental scientist, ethnobotanist, educator, and owner of Go Wild Consulting, a company that fosters healthy ecosystems and our connections to them. She has worked on ethnobotanical and restoration projects on four continents. Jolie works to transform our relationship with nature to one of inclusion and belonging and our concepts of gardens to include our wild landscapes that feed and nourish us.
