We are living through unprecedented times, with both immense challenge and opportunity presenting themselves to each of us in unique ways. Many people are feeling the deep need to connect with like-minded community members, learn new skills and practices, and both offer and receive support right now. And although we are not able to physically connect, the virtual connection, creativity, and learning that has happened as a result of the current crises has been immense.
With over 4,000 registering for our special ConnectIONS Live Series, we are so grateful for the shared learning and inquiry into how we might have a more noetic approach to our current challenges, and to explore together what practices and ways of being can support us now.
In addition to our own offerings, many of our partners are hosting amazing offerings at this time and we wanted to make sure you weren’t missing the chance to connect with the larger community! In service of collaboration, connection, and healing, we are pleased to share a few upcoming offerings from partners and friends of IONS.
Join IONS Fellows Julia Mossbridge and Michael Sapiro for a free, live, science-based, clinically informed 30-minute experiential weekly video webinar.
