Join us for this FREE event as longtime friend of SacIONS and former board member of IONS Hubquarters, Belvie Rooks, (http://growingaglobalheart.weebly.com/about-us.html) brings us an afternoon of dynamic discussion about how to bring personal noetic insights into practical action and transformative healing within our own communities. Learn how each of us contains wisdom that is integral in transforming society for the better and how sharing it and receiving the wisdom from others can be one of the most powerful transformational tools not only in our lives but in the lives of everyone around us! We will also be showing a video of one of the most inspiring aspects of the IONS conference in July - The IONS Next Gen: Consciousness in Action Awards! Three brilliant young noetic minds are interviewed by noted scholar, author, poet, and activist Drew Dellinger about the various ways they are Consciousness In Action. And we are delighted Belvie will be joined by one of the award-winners, Marcelo Garzo Montalvo, in this dynamic SacIONS event! Read on for more about these two amazing presenters!
