14th International IONS Conference



Join us for community breakfasts, which provide a valuable opportunity to meet others and share insights in both organized and informal networking settings. Some tables will have discussions led by our conference participants; topics will be listed as you enter the room. You may elect to join one of these discussions, start your own, or choose a table without a formal discussion.

We will be offering breakfasts on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Each breakfast is $28.50 and you can sign up for each individually. Make sure to sign up for our Free Benefit Lunch on Saturday. All other lunches and dinners will be on your own in San Francisco. We will provide a list of restaurants within walking distance, and opportunities to meet up with other participants for meals.

Carbon Offsetting

Join us on our journey toward sustainability! Greenhouse gas pollution from air and ground travel contribute significantly to the climate crisis. NativeEnergy is donating high-quality carbon offsets to mitigate the global warming impact of the combined estimated venue and staff/speaker travel emissions, helping us make the 14th International Conference more sustainable. We strongly encourage you to offset the global-warming impact of the CO2 emissions of an average attendee’s ground and air travel, accommodations, and waste for just $14 per attendee. Simply check the “offset” box on the registration form to take real, effective action. Thank you for your environmental stewardship and your ongoing commitment to the Institute of Noetic Sciences.
