    Institute of Noetic Sciences Round Table: Barbara Hubbard & Cassandra Vieten

    in Lifestyle

    ***Please note that due to a last-minute change, Edgar Mitchell was not able to make the Round Table.


    Wednesday, June 24, 6pm EDT: This week’s radio show is a Round Table about the Institute for Noetic Sciences (IONS) and the upcoming Conference in Chicago, July 22-26.  Joining Mitchell in the Round Table are IONS Founder, astronaut Edgar Mitchell, IONS current President Cassandra Vieten and the internationally-renowned visionary evolutionist Barbara Marx Hubbard.


    IONS is an outstanding organization with a global reach, educating people about the relationship between science and spirituality, a favorite subject here at A Better World.  Through Conferences, publications and more, IONS is helping to upgrade our understanding of phenomena which have been passed on by conventional science, such as parapsychology, yet the implications of this kind of human potential opens up vistas paralleled, well, as Edgar Mitchell suggested when he was in space, by the beauty and mystery of Earth from the point of view of the Moon.  IONS work in this sphere is helping humanity come to a new understanding about itself and “who” we really are.


    The annual Conference, in Oak Brook, just outside Chicago, is a venue for this kind of dialogue and many similar ones, so certainly worth looking into and attending.  Go to: www.noetic.org.  Marianne Williamson, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Edgar Mitchell, Dean Radin, Cassie Vieten are among a stellar group of speakers at the Conference.  I will be there as well representing the NY chapter of IONS, known as FIONS.  Please join us for this special Conference.  Edgar Mitchell was a guest on A Better World TV back in in 1996 and Barbara in 2010, as well as numerous times over the years on A Better World Radio.

    Wednesday Wisdom Radio with Deborah LeeAnn ~ The Art of the RSVP

    in Women

    One of the forms of Integrity in Leadership shows up in being responsive and true.  We say "Yes" when we mean it, and "No" when that is our truth.


    So, why is it so difficult to find people who honor the RSVP request?  Anyone else tired of scheduling an event and no one RSVP's?  Maybe asking more than once for a response? 


    Yes, I'm guilty too, of failing to respond, waiting to check my calendar and then forgetting. 


    With so many forms of communication, it makes the process even more of a maze...let's talk about this lost art and how we can all be better at it.
