IONS is proud to support the work of up-and-coming noetic explorers who are uniquely positioned to take this field to new heights. With our NextGen Consciousness in Action Awards, we honor people who seek to uplift culture — change makers who seek to make a positive impact in the world, and whose work extends into domains well beyond anything we could have conceived.
We hope you will join Lyla June, PhD, IONS 2019 NextGen Award Winner, at our upcoming Noetic Global Gathering, as she shares her doctoral research on the regional scale foodscapes cultivated by First Nations and the ways in which these impact our lives still today. We will explore how, through these practices, human beings can become a benevolent, and even essential, agent within the food webs and ecosystems that surround us.
We feel fortunate at IONS to be able to continue our programming, offering these free gatherings online for the IONS community. We hope you will join us!
