Learn more about the actual science that inspired the best-selling book!

Responding to the surge of interest in noetic science research inspired by Dan Brown's book, The Lost Symbol, IONS created a special 15-part teleseminar series exploring the noetic sciences mentioned in the book.

“The Science behind The Lost Symbol” teleseminar series brings readers of the book deeper into the true mysteries and discoveries of noetic science research. Headlining the series are leading consciousness science experts discussing anticipation, spiritual healing, shifting archetypes, nature and the cosmos, the sociology of good and evil, ESP, the science of intention, and collective consciousness.
