At this event, Dr. Schlitz will present: Living Deeply: The Art and Science of Transformation in Everyday Life — For over two decades IONS researchers have studied the art and science of transformation in everyday life. From this research we have learned that as we transform our consciousness we transform our bodies, our societies and our world. Based on this research, Dr. Schlitz will explore the interface of Western Material Sciences and Eastern Inner Science to identify insights, tools, and capacities for activating your inner healer.
