August Gathering--2010
Topic: The Lost Symbol and Noetic
Date: Monday, August 23rd
Place: Broadview Library, 12755 Greenwood Ave. N.
          Metro Bus Rt: 5, 345, 355
Time: 6:00-7:45pm  (Join us for social time at 5:30pm)

The Lost Symbol is the latest thriller by Dan Brown, the best selling author of  The Da Vinci Code. The female protagonist, Dr. Katherine Solomon is described as a "noetic scientist," and The Institute of Noetic Sciences is mentioned several times in the book. In the IONS' Shift in Action website, you'll find a 14-part Lost Symbol telesemiar series (

If you have read the book, do you think Dan Brown's description of  "noetic science" is accurate? Are popular books like this helpful to advance the mission of IONS? IONS members often debate about what we mean by "noetic" and "noetic sciences" and this is a good opportunity for us to share our thoughts. If you are new to IONS and curious about learning more about IONS and noetic sciences, this will be a perfect opportunity.

Please bring some snacks to share. BYO Mug. We'll provide hot water and tea.

We are very excited to welcome futurist, author, and sensitive Dawn Clark to Seattle on Thursday, June 3rd. Join us to enter  what she calls "slip time," as she maps this uncharted territory and shares the hidden truth revealed to her in her near-death experience. Combining science with spirituality, she provides unique tools that provide the missing ingredients required to materialize prosperity, health, loving relationships and the life you've always wanted.

This program is for everyone who wants to learn how to get behind the steering wheel of life and create a better tomorrow. To do so, we must bridge the gap between our deeply held internal images and the way the universe really operates.

Through a series of experiential exercises, you will:

• Learn how to descramble the interference patterns that prevent you from logging on to "the field."

• Map the underlying framework of why we get stuck in life and how to move forward.

• Discover the essential ingredients for activating your dormant potential.

• Uncover hidden markers and tell tale signs of fractures to one's core matrix.

• Experience a guided meditation through "slip time" that initiate your ability to set sticky anchor points--a requisite for reverse engineering your new tomorrow.

Simply stated, this work takes you to the next level.

Collectively, Dawn provides a life changing perspective on your capacity to create wealth, intimacy, and well-being in life. Her tools empower you to reverse engineer a new tomorrow, access untapped resources, and gain the multi-dimensional intimacy required to engage your potential.

Internationally published, Dawn is a TED-nominated presenter, faculty member of Omega Institute and has guided individuals, corporations, and clients with 2010 Olympics, Wall Street Journal Online, ABC, PBS, and FOX.

June Gathering--2010
Topic: Consciousness and Healing
Date: Monday, June 28th
Place: Greenwood Library  8016 Greenwood Ave. N., Seattle
       Metro Bus Rt: 5, 48, 35
Time: 6:00-7:45pm
Admission: Free

Let's talk about the recent IONS teleseminar, "Consciousness and Downward Causation--Seeing Mind-Body Medicine from Another Perspective," a part of Exploring the Noetic Sciences series. Here is the description from the Shift in Action website:

"IONS president, Marilyn Schlitz, hosts this discussion with Noel Radcliffe, MD. Meditation, yoga, qigong and other mind body practices have been shown to have profound health benefits. The question of how these practices influence the state of our body remains a mystery. Science has measured stress hormones, heart rate, brain scans and many other health measures in an effort to understand the healing effects of a mindfulness practice. The science of medicine looks to the cellular level to explain what is happening. However, there is a fundamental difference in world view between western medicine and eastern philosophy, the origin of mind body medicine. It is based on whether change happens from the cellular level, (bottom up) or from the level of consciousness, (top down). Is matter or consciousness the ground of all being? When we talk about mind body medicine we think of mind over matter, our minds controlling some aspect of our body. What we really should be saying is consciousness over matter. Consciousness is primary, and can directly affect changes on the brain, leading to changes in the body’s health. No matter how you measure it, finding inner peace is healthy for you."
May Gathering--2010
Topic: Telekinesis and Human Potential
Date: Monday, May 24th

Earlier this month, we co-sponsored a telekinesis workshop taught by Dr. Natalia Shareyko from the Institute of Biosensory Psychology in St. Petersburg, Russia. All thirty six participants successfully moved an object without touching it. Some of the workshop participants will share their experience, and we will discuss what the implications are in terms of mind/matter connection, healing, consciousness, and human potential.

Please bring some snacks to share. We'll provide tea. BYO Mug.
April Gathering--2010

Place: Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N., Seattle
       Metro Bus Rt: 5, 48, 355

We are co-sponsoring the workshop, "Rising to the Challenges of These Testing Times" by James O'Dea and Margo Adair on Sunday, April 25th. We'll be discussing the same topic, "Social Justice and Spirituality" on the next day.

You do not have to attend the workshop to come to this meeting, but this will be a very rare and special workshop with the former president of  IONS, James O'Dea. We hope you could come to both. The topic is very rich and core of the IONS mission, "advancing the science of consciousness and human experience to serve individual and collective transformation."
