The mission of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) is " to explore the frontiers of consciousness to advance individual, social, and global transformation." At this gathering, we will inquire into the notion of ‘community’ as expressed by various IONS thinkers, and explore how critical ‘community building’ is to consciously advance personal and collective transformation--creating a model that works for all.

Cecile Andrews, our local community luminary, will be our guest facilitator. Meet other like-minded people and share your personal stories about what ‘community’ means to you. If you are part of an organization, come share your success stories of ‘community building.’ Help us be enlightened and inspired!
