We have been testing this hypothesis through various experiments and peer-reviewed papers since our founding in 1973. We were pioneers of mindfulness research in the 1980s, and continue to expand the field on the scientific understanding of integrative and complementary health and wellness practices.
What we have learned over time is that science can reveal a deeper understanding of our seemingly coincidental, subjective experiences. Through iterative research that builds on past findings, we are able to illuminate the mechanisms of what is essentially ineffable, in a way that can make these experiences of awe, creativity, intuition, healing, and more regularly accessible and applicable. Today, our research explores the boundaries of our current knowledge through two cornerstone programs: the IONS Discovery Lab and IONSx.
