Cultivating Noetic Wisdom for Personal and Collective Good

ConnectIONS Live!

What is true wisdom and how is it different from intelligence?  What is the source of wisdom and how can we cultivate it using noetic practices?  And why does it matter in our personal, professional, and collective life experience?

Please join IONS CEO Claire Lachance and her special guests as we engage in a dynamic exploration of wisdom and its relationship to noetic sciences. Grounded in Vedantic wisdom, extensive research, and practical application, Prasad Kaipa will discuss his theories regarding the importance of moving from “smart” to “wise.”  We will then explore with Helen Stewart the role of intuition as a key access point to inner wisdom and its crucial importance in advancing personal, business, and collective transformation.

We look forward to sharing how IONS is contributing to the deeper exploration of wisdom via our research-driven Noetic Signature model and the Noetic Leadership Initiative. Webinar participants will be invited to join our lively conversation with questions and comments.

Living the Noetic Sciences: Explore How You Relate to Interconnected Reality

ConnectIONS Live!

While scientists study and uncover many fascinating phenomena, no one is more of an expert on your noetic experiences than You! An amazing field of research called “Heuristic Inquiry” (pronounced hyu-RIS-tik – from the Greek “heuriskein” meaning “to discover”) pertains to the process of gaining knowledge through self-reflection, self-discovery, and self-transformation.

As individuals, we can use some of the fundamental approaches of heuristic inquiry to explore how we relate to the noetic world. It can be a very personal and collective journey of discovery that incorporates felt senses, perception, intuitive, and introspective exploration. These experiences help us to deepen our relationship with our noetic self and tap into information and energy that supports us in decision making, guidance, knowing beyond just the rational, and living with a more expanded understanding of ourselves and the world.

Join us on June 17th to dive into some exciting practices exploring your noetic self!

Physical Mediumship Research: Beyond the Taboo

ConnectIONS Live!

IONS prides itself on pushing the edges of frontier science of consciousness. This includes topics that many would consider taboo such as telepathy, remote viewing, psychokinesis, mediumship, and trance channeling. This Friday’s ConnectIONS Live delves into the fringe of the fringe of taboo topics: Physical Mediumship.

Physical Mediumship Research: Beyond the Taboo

Physical mediumship refers to special type of mediumship that results in apparent physical manifestations such as lights, full or partial materializations, dematerialization, and direct voice phenomena. Historically, physical mediumship received great attention from parapsychology researchers in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, but minimal rigorous research occurred in the last 50 years.

Thanks to the generous support of the Marco Project Endowment Fund, IONS hosted a workgroup on physical mediumship with experts from around the world. The group discussed the state of the science and developed a research program to revitalize this often sidelined research topic. Join IONS Director of Research, Dr. Helané Wahbeh, and her two panelists, Debra Lynn Katz and Ramsés D’León, as they discuss physical mediumship, the results of the workgroup, and their vision for the future of physical mediumship research.

Mainstreaming Mysticism: Ketamine-Assisted Therapy and Noetic Experiences

ConnectIONS Live!

Join Dr. Michael Sapiro, for a special ConnectIONS live on May 27th as he shares his experiential presentation on ketamine-assisted therapy. In times when isolation and feeling separated are at an all-time high, we need experiences that elicit profound growth through noetic experiences, and target healing and transformation of body, mind, spirit, community, and planet. Ketamine-assisted therapy provides us with a safe and highly effective modality for increasing wellbeing, and for the relief of treatment-resistant depression, chronic pain, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and a variety of other mental and physical disorders. During the Ketamine experience, people report deep states of relaxation and heightened awareness, mindfulness and self-acceptance, antidepressant effects, out-of-body and dissociative experiences, a nondual sense of Beingness, and increased insights about who we are spiritually. The Ketamine experience is a noetic one, in that the material of the psyche is revealed, the spirit world opened, and the nondual field of awakened awareness contains it all.

In this experiential presentation, Dr. Sapiro bridges science, psychology, and spirituality as he explores and explains how Ketamine can be used as a tool to bring mysticism to the public, and into the medical and healing fields. Ketamine therapy works on three levels: physiological, psychological, and spiritual and you will have a chance to participate in a meditation that brings all three domains into focus. For Dr. Sapiro, this is our nature and our work: to know we are that which is beyond time and space, the formless loving Source from which all arises and returns, is the ultimate lesson of this medicine. He believes we are both the Mystery itself and the conditions that arise within it; that we are both the Universe, and a very unique, personalized expression of the Universe learning about Itself while living through us.

LSD and the Mind of the Universe

ConnectIONS Live!

Join author, professor, and IONS Emeritus Fellow, Christopher M. Bache, for a special ConnectIONS live on May 20th as he shares about his latest book, LSD and the Mind of the Universe. In this book, Christopher tells the story of his 20-year journey with LSD – 73 high dose sessions conducted between 1979-1999 following Stanislav Grof’s protocol. Trained as a philosopher of religion, this journey became the philosophical adventure of his lifetime. He spent years digesting his experiences, pondering their implications, and trying to integrate the truths he was shown. Now that psychedelics are returning to legitimate scientific and academic discourse, Christopher is sharing his experiment in doing psychedelic philosophy – the methodology used, the dimensions of consciousness that opened, the challenge of achieving sustained communion with these dimensions, and the visions he was given of an impending global crisis and the birth of the Future Human.

Recognizing and Integrating Spiritual Emergence

ConnectIONS Live!

Spiritual emergence experiences occur throughout the life span, triggered by sudden losses, spiritual practices, as well as spontaneous anomalous experiences. Major losses include questioning or loss of faith, illness, grief and facing death. Anomalous spiritual experiences, such as mystical, near death, and psychedelic experiences challenge our understanding of the world and can be confusing and frightening. The self can become disorganized and overwhelmed by an infusion of spiritual energies or new realms of experience. While such challenges can produce a period of distress and imbalance, once recognized and approached as potentially transformative, many people can integrate such episodes in ways that promote their growth and development. Fostering integration of spiritual emergence experiences rather than trying to “reduce symptoms” can enable them to become Spiritually Transformative Experiences.
