How To Transform Science: Six Potential Breakthroughs

These six talks by Rupert Sheldrake will take you on a series of scientific adventures, opening unexpected vistas of experimentally testable possibility, enlarging your imagination and expanding your understanding of nature. Each talk will give you much to discuss with your friends, and if you would like to participate in leading-edge research yourself, Rupert suggests several potentially fruitful lines of enquiry that could be done as student projects, or by groups of citizen scientists.

The talks are being released free of charge on YouTube at roughly two-monthly intervals, starting on March 1, 2023, and ending in October 2, 2023, but if you subscribe to the course you will gain immediate access to all episodes along with free links to relevant chapters from Rupert’s books, as well as technical articles and reviews from scientific journals. The initial subscription rate is £55, going down to £35 on June 5, when the third episode is released.

Most of Rupert Sheldrake’s talks and dialogues are freely available on his Youtube channel and Navigating Consciousness Podcast, and he receives no income from advertisements. Your subscription will not only enable you to avoid waiting for the free episodes, but will also help us cover the cost of producing professionally filmed videos, such as the ones in this course.

How We Change and Why We Don’t: The Art and Science of Transformation at the Sivandra Ashram Yoga Retreat

Have you ever worked hard to make a change, only to find yourself slipping back into old habits? Want to supercharge your ability to stimulate behavior change in others when it comes to the issues you care about the most? Is it time to break free from old patterns and build your next chapter? This workshop is for people in the process of change and those who work as change agents with individuals, groups, and organizations and in society.

Through dialogue, experiential practice, and creative process, we will bridge the science of breakthroughs with indigenous, religious, spiritual, and secular models of transformation. You will:

  • Learn what works and what doesn’t to inspire lasting change in yourself and others.
  • Explore how peak experiences, a-ha! moments and awe can stimulate change.
  • Examine how we and those we work with can get stuck or lost, and find ways to shake free from periods of inertia or patterns that prevent us from moving forward.
  • Investigate the transformative potential of pain, hitting bottom, and post-traumatic growth.
  • Delve into stories, symbols, and metaphors of transformation to guide your path.

Join IONS Fellow Cassandra Vieten, PhD, for this transformational exploration of our most deeply entrenched behaviors. Learn how to break free from the patterns that no longer serve you — and create new habits that will change your life.

Cultivating Vitality in Body, Mind, and Spirit: The Ecosystem of Mental Well-Being

What is vitality? Exuberance, vibrance, sparkle, spirit, and verve — terms rarely found in psychology textbooks. Vulnerability to depression and anxiety is widespread, and our culture traditionally emphasizes reducing symptoms with drugs that alter certain neurotransmitters, which is only part of the picture. We are living in a new era where vulnerabilities can become strengths, and what used to be stigma becomes common humanity. Good mental health is being redefined in terms of stress resilience, post-traumatic growth, and vitality.

This workshop explores evidence-based tools for living a vibrant life, even in the presence of stress, depression, anxiety, or any pain we may be carrying. We will help you build your own ecosystem of mental well-being — including new ways to foster vitality and purpose through caring for the brain, body, and gut. In this workshop, we’ll review the latest scientific findings on practices such as:

  • Hot and cold exposures
  • Optimal physical challenges
  • Breathing techniques
  • Meditation
  • Embodied movement

A mental health renaissance is underway. Mental well-being is being redefined, and a range of evidence-based, whole-person approaches are gaining ground. Learn from renowned authors and cutting-edge scientists to create a flourishing ecosystem of mental well-being for yourself and your clients.
