About This Center
The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), founded by Apollo 14 Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, is a dynamic and unique nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting individual and collective transformation through consciousness research, transformative learning, and engaging a global community in the realization of our human potential. We conduct, advance, and broaden the science of what connects us, reaching new understandings about the nature of reality and our extended capacities. From what we learn, we create real-world tools that empower people to apply conscious awareness in their personal lives, and in healthcare, education, and business. We host a vibrant community of explorers and change agents who are working together to make a difference in the world.
The nourishment that IONS provides is always beyond expectations. The staff are always magnificent, the food spectacular and the grounds full of life, soothing scenery and bliss.
