Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., one of most influential prophets of peace and social justice in modern history. At IONS, Dr. King's messages of social activism, compassion, and universal community resonate powerfully. To celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., we invite you to practice these Worldview Explorations-inspired activities—in the classroom, or at home.

After a year of publishing contributed blog posts from a variety of visionaries, we will be focusing more on the inner life of IONS. Here at the blog, each week a member of our staff will bring you a close-up view of life inside IONS and/or commentary on what we are learning about the evolving field of consciousness research.

What limits our desire and capacity to take in new ideas – even when we hold an intention to transform and grow? How can we shift a paradigm that we see as flawed and incomplete without understanding the barriers to changing our minds and behaviors? And how can we develop habits that allow us to explore and reveal our own biases and intolerance of ideas that refute our prevailing beliefs and opinions?

Wisdom and technology had their friendly faceoff at the second annual Wisdom 2.0 conference as some of Silicon Valley’s finest mixed comfortably with a trio of mindfulness masters and an audience of new media pioneers...

It’s been quite a year – and it’s barely April. Extreme political unrest is underway throughout the Middle East. Earthquakes rock New Zealand, China, California, and Japan. Shifting plates and tsunami waves in the Pacific Ocean have nuclear power plants perched on the edge of total meltdown.

I posted an article about Psi Research on my Huffington Post blog Friday morning and by Friday evening had nearly 1000 views and 250 comments. It’s been very interesting to read the comments on this article – now nearly 900 - and to see the great interest this topic generated. In this follow-up post I share my response to some of these comments.

Why is the existing literature on psi phenomena routinely dismissed by the scientific community and virtually ignored within the broader academic community? I think it's fear that some of our most cherished beliefs, about how the world works and about who and what we are, may be wrong. Such examination may lead to radical revisions in understanding our human potentials.

Very few have heard of Dr. Roy, as his books and lectures focused on geochemistry, glass ceramics, and nanocomposites rather than low-fat diets and the number of steps to optimal health. But he was the consummate unsung hero of healthcare, and he passed away on August 26, 2010, at the age of 86, a true visionary in a realm where the word is applied a bit too freely and often with a taste of self promotion.

I have lectured and written about the scientific taboo that prohibits scientists from openly studying psi. One way this prejudice manifests is by being invited to give a lecture at a scientific conference, and then finding yourself disinvited after someone on the conference committee discovers that the invitee has an interest in parapsychology.

"You can't go to jail for what you're thinking," wrote Frank Loesser in his 1956 hit song “Standing on the Corner.” His observation no longer applies in India, the world’s largest democracy, where you can now be convicted of a capital crime and sentenced to life imprisonment ...

Building a sustainable future? Of course that’s what we all want…but how?

Social—or societal—healing is an emerging field. It seeks to bring learning in a variety of adjacent fields such as peacemaking, peace building, conflict resolution, trauma recovery, and restorative justice together with insights from the new sciences including consciousness studies, neuroscience, and an integral approach to mind-body medicine...
