SacIONS Overview

SacIONS, the Sacramento Community Group of the Institute of Noetic Sciences is a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization that is affiliated with and supports the programs of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) in its vision and mission to explore the frontiers of consciousness.

SacIONS supports our personal and collective quest for healing, wholeness, connection, transformation and community-building and contributes to bringing about a humane, sustainable and peaceful world.

What are the Noetic Sciences?
“Noetic Sciences” bring objective scientific methods together with the deep wisdom of inner knowing and direct experience to explore the mysteries of consciousness. Noetic sciences explore the "inner cosmos" of the mind (consciousness, soul, spirit) and how it relates to the "outer cosmos" of the physical world.

SacIONS presents programs that expand the understanding of human possibility by investigating aspects of mind, consciousness, and spirit. We holds meetings that may include well-known national and local speakers from organizations that reflect our vision and mission as well as topics presented by members. The meetings are held locally and often include co-presenting with other non-profit organizations, such as our current partner, Unity of Sacramento.

SacIONS supports and encourages the creation of study groups by its members. These groups bring diversity of perspective and foster connection through exploration, dialogue, and service. Each group is self-organizing and self-directed. Their endeavors can result in a presentation at one of the general meetings, increasing the knowledge and wisdom of all members. Our currently active DG's are the Inner Work Group and the Video Viewing Circle. We periodically run short-term Discovery Groups on specific topics, such as the immensely popular IONS educational program, Conscious Aging.

SacIONS is about building community and expanding consciousness of as many people as possible. To that end, we have allied with a wide variety of organizations over the years or presented some of their materials due to their importance in facilitating the great shift in the Field we have been working towards. These have included organizations such as The Pachamama Alliance, The Institute of HeartMath, Soilborn Farms, and our current major partner, Unity of Sacramento.

Unity of Sacramento embraces many of the same spiritual principles that the scientists of IONS study and the community members of groups such as ours explore and investigate within our own inner work. We use their facilities to host our larger meetings and workshops, and when our meetings overlap with each other's audience we will often encourage each other to attend one another's events in the spirit of building community. Please note that we do not endorse any particular faith or creed and welcome and encourage people of all paths to walk along ours for as long as they wish.
