What we're about

This is the meetup group for people in Ontario supporting IONS, encompassing the Greater Toronto Area and surrounding regions. We welcome new members from all around Ontario and encourage and support you to start your own meetup in your region.

Our Vision

The Institute of Noetic Sciences serves an emerging movement of globally conscious citizens dedicated to manifesting our highest capacities.

We believe that consciousness is essential to a paradigm shift that will lead to a more sustainable world. We encourage open-minded explorations of consciousness through the meeting of science and spirit. We take inspiration from the great discoveries of human history that have been sourced from insight and intuition and that have harnessed reason and logic for their outer expression.

It is our conviction that systematic inquiries into consciousness will catalyze positive concrete transformations in the world. In this process, our vision is to help birth a new worldview that recognizes our basic interconnectedness and interdependence and promotes the flourishing of life in all its magnificent forms.

Our Mission

Broadening our knowledge of the nature and potentials of mind and consciousness and applying that knowledge to enhancing human well-being and the quality of life on the planet.

18th International Conference of the Institute of Noetic Sciences in California

On July 20, 1969, we witnessed the first human walk on the surface of the moon. We didn’t expect that it would be the view from space back to the Earth that would trigger something even more profound in the human psyche. Earth floating freely in the vastness of space, where boundaries between countries vanish, the conflicts and difference between people become less important. Seeing this vision of Earth from his space capsule, IONS Founder Edgar Mitchell felt a profound sense of universal connectedness: “I realized that the story of ourselves as told by science—our cosmology, our religion—was incomplete and likely flawed. I recognized that the Newtonian idea of separate, independent, discreet things in the universe wasn't a fully accurate description. What was needed was a new story of who we are and what we are capable of becoming.” On this 50th Anniversary, the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) is holding its 18th Annual International Conference in Santa Clara, California, honouring science and deep inner knowing. At the crossroads of science and spirituality, at the intersection of the known and the unknown, leading thinkers, visionaries, and wisdom keepers - will come together for 3 days of possibility, inspiration, and deep transformation.
