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 Sarah Peck, EdD, IONS 2019 NextGen Award Winner, at our upcoming Noetic Global Gathering, in which she will present her research about what is perceived and communicated from the perspective of healers and the implications for research on mind-matter interaction. In this gathering, Sarah will review her research of first-hand accounts from 30 spiritual healers as they conducted healing sessions, including narratives of their inner experiences along with visual depictions of their mental imagery. Dr. Peck will also explore the similarities and differences between the healers working with the same client at the same time, which provides unique insights about what is actually happening during these sessions from the perspective of the healer.
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!

About the Presenter
Sarah Peck, EdD, has offered spiritual service, launching and leading spirit, mind, and body programs at Teachers College, Columbia University for the last 10 years. She is the former director of the Spirituality Mind Body (SMBI) Master’s Degree Program, October 2013-17, and was Co-Founder and Co-President of the Mindfulness and Education Working Group, September 2010-14. She taught six graduate courses, including Pilgrimage to Mata Amritanandamayi Devi in Kerala, India and Pro-Seminars in Leadership Development on Self-Awareness Training for 400 students within the Summer Principals Academy. She successfully defended her dissertation, a qualitative case study examining the role of mental imagery for 30 spiritual healers trained by Ron Young, who saw clients with serious illness each week for nine months. She examined the comparability across different constructions, experiences, and expressions of mental imagery, finding distinct and overlapping themes and sub-themes among healers within each case, and between the healers and their clients.
