We are delighted to share that the book The Science of Channeling: Why You Should Trust Your Intuition & Embrace the Force That Connects Us All by Dr. Helané Wahbeh, IONS Director of Research, has won the notable Nautilus Book Award!
The book was released in 2021 and was born out of a desire to provide grounded research to explain experiences commonly considered inexplicable: accessing information or energy beyond our five senses. Dr. Helané Wahbeh has since created a course where you’ll explore this fascinating topic and your relation to it closer. You can check out the book and course here.
The Science of Channeling was selected in the Science & Cosmology category for the 2022 awards. Among previous winners are names like Eckhart Tolle and Marianne Williamson. The Nautilus Awards represent Better Books for a Better World.
Through the awards, Nautilus has honored and given wider recognition to authors and books within areas like spirituality, personal growth, conscious living, and social justice for over 20 years. Books running for the award need to go through a thorough selection process. Three independent teams of expert reviewers – typically with careers in science or literature – scrutinize each book for a number of criteria.
Winning the award is good news since it means more exposure for The Science of Channeling and IONS, leading to increased awareness around channeling and noetic experiences – and hopefully more acceptance by the mainstream.
Finally, there’s a beautiful synchronicity in the meaning of the word “nautilus” and IONS. Nautilus is a mollusk with a mesmerizing, pearl-lined shell. As the sea creature grows, it creates chambers of increasing size. The nautilus symbolizes the merging of ancient wisdom and expanding horizons. In theory, its spiral-like shape could grow infinitely big, reflecting the unbound nature of noetic experiences and the evolution of consciousness.
