Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS)
Founded in 1973 by former astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell to
encourage and conduct basic research and education programs
on mind–body relationships for the purpose of gaining new understanding
of human consciousness. The term noetic is defined
as ‘‘pertaining to, or originating in intellectual or rational
activity.’’ Institute programs include research in parapsychology,
healing, personal awareness, and control of interior states.
In 1993, the institute merged with the Intuition Network. The
institute, now a worldwide organization, has a 50,000-plus
membership. Address 475 Gate Five Rd., Ste. 300, Sausalito,
