This group is one of the many Institute of Noetic Sciences community groups. Here in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area, we bring together a dynamic collection of people dedicated to exploring a personal and collective shift in consciousness through conversations that matter. The Institutes primary program areas are consciousness and healing, extended human capacities, and emerging worldviews, or paradigm shifts. The DFW IONS explore these topics at the local level through diverse speaker presentations, DVD showings and discussions, with the interest of creating and sustaining a community of like minded questioning individuals. At the heart of our efforts is to grow conscious awareness of the secrets of the Universe, while bridging the gap between science and spirituality.
