IONS Community Group Network

Welcome to the IONS Community Group Home Page! There are self-organizing Community Groups meeting around the world that link themselves to, and are recognized by, the Institute of Noetic Sciences. The groups bring together a dynamic collection of people dedicated to exploring a wide range of noetic topics toward a personal and collective shift in consciousness through conversations that matter. Most bring science and spirituality together in interesting ways. They begin as like-minded people gathering to exchange mind-based ideas and morph into heart-based islands of friendship and enlightenment across the land. There is power and magic in this intimate face-to-face connection and sharing of ideas and experiences in a safe space. Groups often meet to discuss articles, books, inspiring films, and other IONS materials. For a more thorough description, look at the Community Group Purpose and Principles section of Group Basics.

The Community Group Network links the individual groups into a coherent field of folks who share a dedication to bringing about a shift in consciousness. This section of the website offers opportunities for the groups to network in order to share their activities and connect with each other.
