Through the global IONS Community Group Network, passionate and curious people gather to build community and coherently engage with IONS work in deeply meaningful ways — ways that make a profound difference in their lives and communities.
IONS Community Groups are independent, self-organizing, gatherings held across the globe. They bring together a dynamic collection of people dedicated to exploring a wide range of noetic topics and facilitating a personal and collective shift in consciousness. Groups often meet to discuss articles, books, inspiring films, and other IONS materials.
Historically, many IONS Community Groups met in-person, at private homes, community centers, and private venues. Given the changes with the COVID-19 pandemic, many Community Groups are now meeting online, increasing their accessibility and availability to noetic enthusiasts to join from anywhere in the world.
Every year, the IONS Experience & Engagement department sends the 120+ IONS Community Group facilitators an annual survey to gain insight into where, when, and how groups are meeting across the globe. We are pleased to publish the results from this year’s IONS Community Group Annual Survey.
Many IONS Community Groups are meeting online! If you do not see a group in your local area on the IONS Community Group Network, you may also find a list of virtual Community Groups who meet on the internet – accessible from anywhere with an internet connection (the list is located beneath the global map directory).
Have you wanted to connect with others and share your thoughts on things like consciousness and psi? Do you ever wish you had a group of people to talk with about noetic experiences? We invite you to join an IONS Community Group. There’s never been a better time!
Don’t see a local group or one that meets online in your time zone? We encourage you to form a new IONS Community Group! IONS will give you personal support to get your group up-and-running, and the network of other facilitators are also available to share their wisdom.
Our online training provides all the tools, information, and resources you need to start a local (or virtual!) IONS Community Group. This program supports facilitators in becoming confident about their knowledge and representation of IONS and in creating a vibrant discussion group.
