The local Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) Community Group meets Thursday evening, February 10, at the Bohemian Grange located at 125 Blanchard Lake Road in Whitefish (directly west of Montana Coffee Traders on Hwy. 93 S.) beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Dr. Susan Rangitsch will present a program titled "MANDALAS, MADNESS, and TRANSCENDENCE" at this month's meeting. During this evening, Susan will share her transformational journey through a series of mandalas she drew during two separate psychic breaks, the first of which led her to the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, in the company of Stan and Christina Grof. An intensive workshop will take place the following Friday evening & all day Saturday at the Walking Bear Lodge located on Hodgson Road.
Dr. Rangitsch, who resides in Missoula, is a licensed professional therapist. She received her Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from the U. of Oregon and her Doctorate at the U. of Montana in 1989. She is also a first responder with an international relief agency, volunteering in large-scale disasters and providing emotional & psychological support in special units of recovery.
