The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) is a nonprofit organization engaged in scientific and scholarly research on the nature of consciousness and its role in the physical world. IONS uses the tools and techniques of the neurosciences, psychophysiology, cognitive and personality psychology, neuroscience, computer science, engineering and physics to focus on topics ranging from intuition, distant and "energy" healing, to mind-matter interaction, transformative experiences, and the interactions between beliefs, behavior and worldviews. Through philanthropic and membership funding, IONS conducts basic research in its onsite laboratory, applications research at hospitals, social service centers, and classrooms, and education via online courses, workshops, conferences, and publications. IONS research is published in many mainstream peer-reviewed academic journals, including Psychological Bulletin, Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Physics Essays and Foundations of Physics Letters. Located on 200 acres of pastoral hills 25 miles north of San Francisco, IONS also operates EarthRise, an eco-friendly transformative learning center which offers meeting facilities, food and lodging for up to 120 people.
