IONS Ecosystem of Change : New Narratives


Way-finding Map of Resources

Can we cradle people through a shift in consciousness by providing them a rich set of resources to support them throughout the process? Cassandra Vieten, PhD and her colleges at IONS (The Institute of Noetic Sciences) has researched what people need to transform. Together, can we leave behind a up-to-date map using our collective wisdom? Each week we will ask a new question and show the results from the last question to the group.
