Rigorous Research, Profound Possibilities
Noetic sciences provide a framework through which we can gain a more holistic understanding of ourselves and our world. As a result, we gain a deeper, fuller perspective — discovering new solutions to age-old problems for ourselves, society, and our future.
IONS Discovery Lab
Through our direct-experience laboratory, we study and measure the effects of noetic experiences and practices on well-being, innovation, and extended human capacities.
Our moonshot: unlocking the mechanisms of how our mind influences the physical world, creating breakthroughs towards robust, reliable, repeatable applications.
