New collaboration with the INSTITUTE OF NOETIC SCIENCES
Seymour Projects x INSTITUTE OF NOETIC SCIENCES
PARIONS Community Group
Melissa Unger/Seymour Projects has partnered with Jean-Georges Etter, François de Witt and Beatrix Délic to found PARIONS – a Paris-based Community Group affiliated with The Institute of Noetic Sciences.
The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) is a non-profit organization founded in 1973 by Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell. During his voyage back to Earth, Mitchell experienced a profound sense of universal connectedness which led him to conclude that reality is more complex, subtle, and mysterious than conventional science had led him to believe. He founded IONS in the hopes that a deeper understanding of consciousness (inner space) could lead to a new and expanded understanding of reality that would ultimately be of great benefit to humanity and the plight of our planet.
PARIONS community group will seek to explore innovative ways to assist the general public in shifting their core metaphysical assumptions underlying the current dominant model of reality. This group will also seek to introduce the public to the notion of extended human capacities and provide opportunities to facilitate the discovery and exploration of their own individual intuitive abilities.
By helping to disseminate the IONS message to the local community we hope to encourage open-minded explorations of consciousness with the specific goal of propagating a new and expanded view of life in which objective and subjective are better understood as equal aspects of the human experience. By helping to erase the boundaries between science and spirituality, noetic science helps to ignite increased energy and creativity in all individuals. We are so much more than we currently realize. .
Group meetings and public events will take place at the SEYMOUR+ space located at 41 Boulevard de Magenta in Paris.
