Welcome to a new season of Diablo IONS!
I suppose a brief introduction is in order. I’m Bob van Duinen and I have volunteered to take the lead for planning and organizing the activities for Diablo IONS.
Consciousness and Human Potential have long been topics of interest to me. That led to my discovering and joining the Institute of Noetic Sciences about 20 years ago. Since retiring as a computer systems analyst nine years ago, I have been more active in IONS and my personal search for understanding.
In planning meetings for the coming season, it seemed best to start with the question: What is Mind and Consciousness?
There are a lot of differing perspectives on this question, so for our first meeting I have assembled excerpts from video lectures by various “experts” on this subject. We’ll watch and listen, then form into a circle to share our own thoughts, questions, and observations on this controversial subject.
The rest of the season will be a combination of guest speakers and video+discussion on that basic IONS theme – the nature and potentials of mind and consciousness.
Share the evening with friends and family! All are welcome. Because our expenses are met through member's annual dues, there is no charge for individual meetings. For those non-members who wish, we graciously welcome donations.
Dues are only $20 - per year - for your entire family!
(That's just $2.22/meeting!)
Thank you to those who support us through your membership!
