As part of our Spring fundraising campaign we are offering a special webinar series on Collective Consciousness. Join us for three inspiring and information-packed sessions — free and open to all!
Coherence is an organizing principle of the Universe that implies order, harmony, and the efficient use of energy. Decades of experimental research suggest coherent human attention and emotion impacts a collective energetic field environment that connects all beings, is intertwined with physical reality, and is outside the conventional boundaries of space and time, in beneficial ways. In Session 2, we’ll share some practical applications of what’s being learned, and explore the significance for ourselves and for participating in our world in transition.
Cohering a Collective Consciousness

Claudia Welss is Chairman of the IONS Board of Directors and the board Science Committee. She’s also founding Chair of Invest in Yourself at Nexus Global Youth Summit and Network, bridging practical consciousness research with philanthropy, impact investing, activism, and social innovation. As a funder and citizen scientist, Claudia advises experimental projects with the potential to accelerate large-scale change, like World Future Coin, HeartMath’s Global Coherence Initiative, and Flow Genome Project.
Rollin McCraty, PhD, is Director of Research of the HeartMath Research Center at the HeartMath Institute. He is also a visiting Professor at Florida Atlantic University. As a psychophysiologist, Dr. McCraty’s research interests include the physiology of emotion, with a focus on the mechanisms by which emotions influence cognitive processes, behavior, and health as well as the global interconnectivity between people and the earth’s energetic systems. Findings from this research have been applied to the development of tools and technology to optimize individual and organizational health, performance, and quality of life.
Rev. Floyd Thompkins is passionate about facilitating sensitive real-world issues and implementing meaningful, relevant community initiatives to make a positive difference. As Associate Dean of Memorial Church at Stanford University, Rev. Thompkins founded Black Church, the largest multi-cultural religious gathering on the Stanford campus. In Georgia, he was executive director of the Bower Fund and with Youth Empowerment Today, organizations dedicated to mentoring at-risk youth through middle school, high school, and into college. His awards include the Presidential Award for Community Service from President Bill Clinton, The Benjamin E. Mays Fellowship from the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Edward G. Howel Preaching Award from Princeton Theological Seminary.
Marshall Lefferts is Founder and Director of the Cosmometry Project, Board Member of the Resonance Science Foundation (President from 2006 to 2019) and Adjunct Faculty of RSF’s Resonance Academy, Associate Producer of Thrive – What On Earth Will It Take? and Visual Effects Co-Director of Thrive II (to be released in 2020), former Co-Director of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution, and a lifetime member of the Buckminster Fuller Institute and Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (CoSM).
Roger Nelson, PhD, studied physics at the University of Rochester, and experimental psychology at New York University and Columbia. He is the author or co-author of 75 technical papers and two books, Der Welt-Geist: wie wir all miteinander verbunden sind (German) with Georg Kindel, and Connected: the Emergence of Global Consciousness. He was Professor of Psychology at Johnson State College in northern Vermont, and in 1980 joined the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) lab to coordinate research. His focus is on mental interactions, anomalous information transfer, and effects on physical systems by individuals and groups. He created the Global Consciousness Project in 1997, building a world-spanning random number generator network designed to gather evidence of coalescing global consciousness. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences.
