Dr Edgar Mitchell: Roots of Noetic Sciences

Dr. Mitchell discusses the Apollo 14 mission and how that trip changed him and planted the seeds for his development of the IONS.

Dr. Edgar Mitchell was an Apollo astronaut and one of the first men to walk on the moon. That experience led to his formation of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) more than 3 decades ago.

This talk took place on November 9, 2009.

BoiseIONS March 2016: Honoring Edgar Mitchell

At the March 27th meeting, Boise IONS commemorates the founder of IONS International, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, a former astronaut who passed away on February 4, 2016. Upon his return from his Apollo 14 moon landing in 1971, he had a powerful shift in consciousness; a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts and cosmonauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from orbit or from the lunar surface. It appears to stem from the experience of seeing firsthand the reality of the Earth in space, which is immediately understood to be a tiny, fragile ball of life, “hanging in the void”, shielded and nourished by a paper-thin atmosphere.

To better understand this psychic/spiritual phenomena, as well as delve deeper into understanding of consciousness and ESP, Edgar Mitchell co-founded IONS in 1973 to encourage and conduct research on noetic theory and human potential. The word noetic means “of or relating to the mind,” and covers a broad range of study which includes ESP, meditation, spontaneous remission, lucid dreaming, and other parapsychological experiences. We will enjoy and discuss a video presentation with Edgar Mitchell in which he speaks about his experience and the founding of IONS as well as some of his more recent research into quantum holography.

Hello and I hope everyone had a Happy Holiday season

Below is the notes on this months presentation.  In addition in the next newsletter and meeting there will be notes about a idea that BoiseIONS will try this year.  Please look for the next newsletter for details.

Boise IONS meets the last Sunday of each month except August and December from 2 to 4 PM at the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on Garrett Street in Garden City.
At the January 31 meeting Denise Nygard will  present “Releasing limitation by understanding and transcending the Ego Mind”.

Denise will talk about the Spiritual Anatomy of the Ego Mind  so that you can identify which  part of your ego mind you are operating from in different areas of your life.   She will be break down the counterparts to the ego mind  and give you ways to move beyond the limitations that can keep you stuck.  Ultimately, by understanding how to be the master of your ego, and having it work for you instead of against you, you  will learn to become more conscious of the blocks that you may have in your life to becoming more self realized and operating from the Mind of the Heart. 
Denise has been a “spiritual seeker” as long as she can remember.  At 19, she met her mentor/spiritual teacher Judie McReynolds, from whom she learned  about energy balancing techniques, mind/body connection and ways to heal ourselves through visualization. She subsequently trained in Advanced Clairvoyant development and healing, Access Consciousness, Energy medicine healing techniques, Illuminated  Mind, and JSJ training  with a medical doctor.  She is also a Level III Reiki Master.  Through her business, Divine Inspiration Healing, Denise has spent the last five years working professionally in the field of energy medicine, incorporating many modalities as an intuitive healer and spiritual teacher.  She also offers crystal bath therapy session on her “John of God” crystal bed from Brazil. 

Hope everyone had a good holiday season and will be looking forward to seeing you in this new year.

Boise IONS meets the last Sunday of each month except August and December from 2 to 4 PM at the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on Garrett Street in Garden City.  Judith Allen will share with us a way of  “MAINTAINING  YOUR  INDEPENDENCE   from the Healthcare System; What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You!”,   along with her story of coming back from disability to health and the Nobel Prize winning science that helped her accomplish this along with getting her prescription medications. 

Affectionately known as Lady J, Judith Allen, RN, has for 35+ years been studying and practicing alternative/complementary medicine, and for the past three years has been a Cardiovascular (Heart Health) Coach.  Her objective is to make a difference in the world, one person at a time.  She has some startling facts about the ‘Medical Industrial Complex’ and the medical device she uses to determine the amount of fatty plaque buildup in your arteries which is 99% as accurate as having an angiogram, non-invasive and much less expensive both in time and money. She has many skills to help her patients or when appropriate, to refer them to someone else who can meet their needs.

Hello members:

IAt the September 2015 meeting Vicki Lundin-Taylor, PhD, will share with us the synchronized approach she uses for coaching clients looking to balance personal and professional lives.

Vicky is a credentialed transformative coach who says that after years of working, playing, and living with the best of intentions for becoming successful and happy, she finally discovered the secret.  No, not the book!  The truth. To know thyself.  It is about taking the time to soulfully discover who you are, who you want to be, and strategically live with purpose. Vicki integrated her diverse business background, which spans the corporate venue, community advocacy, successful entrepreneurial enterprises, and a Masters Degree in Business with extensive education and practical experience in Transpersonal Psychology.

During the last 5 years, Vicki observed that the term transformation had been overused, commercialized, and diluted in its value which led her to her doctorate research: A Lived Experience of Transformation within an Earth-Based Hero’s Journey. She discovered shifts that take place in an individual’s daily life after experiencing a transformation. Vicki will share her research and provide a forum for discussion.

At the May 31st meeting M’Tae Woodbury will provide an overview of the Buddhist insights into the nature of mind and recent investigation by neuroscientists into the effects of meditation on the mind. The presentation will pose questions, explore answers and suggest further lines of inquiry.

As the Director of the Mindfulness Center Idaho, M’Tae provides training and education to individuals and groups interested in mindfulness and the cultivation of resiliency.  She is a facilitator for the Trauma Resource Institute, as well as an ordained Buddhist Chaplain. She speaks regularly at local centers of worship and officiates at weddings and funerals. She received Upasika vows from the esteemed Tibetan Buddhist teacher, Venerable Pema Chodron, in 1992; received the Five Mindfulness Trainings in the Plum Village Tradition in 1994, and was ordained as a lay member of the Order of Interbeing by Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh in 1997.  She has taught yoga and meditation in Boise since 1989, and is the current President of the Board of Directors of Beginners Mind Sangha, a Thich Nhat Hanh community of practice, in Boise, ID.

BoiseIONS April Presentation: The Toolbox Project A

At the April 26th meeting Becky Carson Eisenman, who has taught at Boise schools for many years will share The Toolbox Project. The Project is based on the belief that all children have an innate capacity for resilience, self-mastery, and empathy for others. The Project curriculum, practices, and methods  give children, educators and parents skills to access those innate abilities through a strengths-based, common language, leading to cohesive, collaborative, non-violent, and caring communities. The Toolbox Project  provides a new way forward in our understanding and assumptions about what it means to be an educated person in the twenty-first century, giving hope for a more meaningful and positive future.
