Conscious Living Workshops

Conscious Living Workshops offer ways of bringing attention to consciousness into everyday life. The workshops focus on bringing new knowledge into practical use—at home, in the workplace, and in the world.

This signature workshop series offers an affordable retreat experience where people can become familiar with the research and education programs of IONS while enjoying life-deepening conversations, freshly prepared meals, and reconnecting with nature in the beautiful setting of our 194-acre campus.
