Manifesting — bringing about positive outcomes through thought or belief — is making news these days. Though these mental “magical” practices have been around for eons, recently even the New York Times has dipped its toes into esoteric waters, with an article on the increased interest from millennials in the law of attraction and power of positive thinking.
While most of the reports speak to the popularity of such practices, referring to anecdotal reports from practitioners who often speak of “universal laws,” these articles share little to nothing on what we know from a scientific perspective. How much influence do our thoughts really have on our experience of the material world?

Join IONS Director of Experience & Engagement, Kerstin Sjoquist, along with IONS Chief Scientist, Dean Radin, on Friday, March 19th at 11:00am PDT, as we explore what research has shown us about setting intentions for a specific outcome, and how that might inform techniques and practices meant to intentionally influence events and outcomes.
Dean Radin, PhD, is Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences and Associated Distinguished Professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Before joining the research staff at IONS in 2001, he held appointments at AT&T Bell Labs, Princeton University, University of Edinburgh, and SRI International. Dr. Radin is author or coauthor of hundreds of technical and popular articles, some 100 peer-reviewed journal articles, four dozen book chapters, and four best-selling books. He has given over 500 invited presentations and interviews for government, military, business, scientific, and popular groups around the world.
Kerstin Sjoquist is the Director of Experience & Engagement at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. A long-time IONS member, a series of synchronous and magical events led Kerstin to a staff position at the Institute in 2014, where she now spends her days in support of the creation of IONS programmatic offerings to benefit those who seek a deeper engagement with potential and fulfillment. Prior to joining IONS, Kerstin was the founder and CEO of Consciousness Arts, Inc., specializing in psycho-spiritual products, classes, and services to assist people in expanding and enhancing their lives.
