200px-Edgar_Mitchell_croppedBaltimore Friends of IONS explores the mysteries and potential of human consciousness and the intersection between science and spirit!

Join us for vibrant discussions every month and an engaging book club or movie every other month.

Discussion Group:
7:00-8:30 pm, 2nd Tuesday of the month

Movie Nights:
Every other month on the third Wednesday.

Meetings are generally held at the Ruscombe Mansion Community Health Center,

in the conference room in the Hill House at 4803 Yellowwood Avenue, Baltimore MD 21209

Our group hosts an annual gathering and occasional field trips, as well.

We say “Friends of IONS” because our group follows the work of the nationally based Institute of Noetic Sciences (www.Noetic.org) founded by astronaut Edgar Mitchell. Please visit their website to learn more.

The mission of the national organization is:

“Broadening our knowledge of the nature and potentials of mind and consciousness and applying that knowledge to enhancing human well-being and the quality of life on the planet.”

Given the wide range of topics and opinions that are presented and discussed during our activities, it may not surprise you that IONS notes that “Views expressed by speakers, workshop leaders and participants do not necessarily reflect the views of IONS or anyone associated with The Institute of Noetic Sciences” which, in other words, means that we foster diverse and open-minded conversations, enough that someone is bound to take an opposing view or even not like what is said!

Unfortunately, in a litigious society, we also must share that Baltimore Friends of IONS is wholly independent of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and is legally and financially responsible for its own activities.

Enough said, now please enjoy the rest of our site and take part in our activities.
