Dean Radin is the author of the bestselling "The Conscious Universe" and, most recently, "Entangled Minds." He has conducted research on exceptional human capacities at Princeton University, the University of Edinburgh, and SRI International.

Dean Radin played the violin from the age of five, and worked as a professional classical violinist for five years.

The new President of IONS (Institute of Noetic Sciences), Marilyn Mandala Schlitz Ph.D, will be in Seattle for an informal conversation about present developments and future plans for IONS and its community groups.

Marilyn has played a leading role in IONS research and education since 1994.  Since becoming president in January, she is actively seeking input and feedback from the greater IONS community regarding her vision for IONS, including her current draft of a revised mission statement:
  “To explore the mysteries of consciousness by integrating science and spirit to catalyze a sustainable future for all of humanity.”

Further describing her vision, Marilyn says:  “IONS intends to refocus on the core mission of excellence in consciousness research at the nexus of inner wisdom and objective science, and to apply the findings to promote human flourishing and planetary sustainability. This is the primary driver for all of IONS’ work.”

She plans to share news of how a visit to her son’s school - to talk about her work and how it might apply to the students  - very quickly mushroomed, by popular demand, into an exciting new IONS plan to create a K-12 curriculum on Worldview Literacy, or “what the students know and how they know it”.

These are exciting times to be watching, and hopefully helping to steer, the accelerating evolution of consciousness on the planet.  Come join us for what is likely to be a fascinating peek at IONS, an increasingly important leading edge of that movement.

Indra's Rainbow is a 'Community Group' of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS). IONS Community Groups are coordinated through a volunteer group, the Member Council, whose purpose is to create connection, partnership and coherence across the IONS community

At our gathering this month, we are very fortuntate and happy to have three of the Member Council members: Shirley  Freriks from California, Linda Hassler from Tennessee and Ann Frost  from British Columbia. The Member Council enlivens the IONS Community Group network in the U.S. and other countries. They also act as a liaison between the IONS Hubquarters in Petaluma, CA and Community Groups.

These prominent leaders in the IONS community will share stories about the early years of IONS and of its evolution. You'll hear exciting news about what's going on with IONS today. And we'll talk  about how we could participate in co-creating IONS community with the IONS Hubquarters. You’ll have a chance to ask them about any questions you might have about IONS.

If you have been curious about IONS, this will be a great meeting to find out why IONS members are so passionate. If you are a member of  IONS, you could also share your stories and get to meet other members in our community.
