On the Apollo Fourteen mission to the moon, Edgar Mitchell had a transformational experience. When he returned to Earth, he discovered that his experience was called “Samadhi” — A profound state of consciousness told of by mystics and saints, depicted by artists, and experienced by meditation practitioners for centuries. This video features Marilyn Schlitz, IONS President/CEO; Dean Radin, IONS Senior Scientist; and Cassandra Vieten, IONS Director of Research as they explore the role of Transformation in our lives and the influence it has on our culture.
This engaging book, the fruit of the Institute of Noetic Sciences' ongoing investigation into the power and potential of human consciousness, brings what we know about achieving personal transformation off the mountain top, down from the ivory tower, out of the laboratory, and into your hands. Groundbreaking insights were gleaned from representatives of many major world religions including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Native American cosmology, and contemporary forms of spirituality, and are complemented by the latest discoveries from science.
As integrative medicine finds a place on the national health care stage, science has acquired tools to better measure the effectiveness of transformative practices. A close look at three such studies suggests a bright future for alternative and complementary therapies.
In this teleseminar, host Marilyn Schlitz talks with Nina Wise, who is known for her provocative and original performance works. They discuss the value of improvisation in transformational work. Nina shares stories of Vietnam Vets who have participated in her workshops and had breakthroughs they weren't able to achieve during therapy.
Nina's pieces have garnered seven Bay Area Critics' Circle Awards, and she has received, among other prestigious honors, three National Endowment for the Arts fellowships. Her written pieces have appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies.
IONS President Marilyn Mandala Schlitz and Research Psychologists Cassandra Vieten and Tina Amorok discuss their systematic investigation of the transformative process.
