Cowerei ce Faculty WELCOME We are pleased to personally invite you to participate in the Institute of Noetic Sciences first international conference of members, colleagues and friends. At the Institute of Noetic Sciences, we sincerely be- lieve that collectively we can build a sustainable and magnificent global future. Global Mind Change - From Vision to Reality is a conference dedicated to exploring tools and strategies for the most impor- tant work of humankind - personal growth within the context of sustainable global development. These are times of tremendous challenge; they require the best in each of us. By coming together for a week- end of collaborative learning, we can have an op- portunity to discover the visions we all share, and understand more deeply the likely realities that will emerge from them. Such knowledge can help us shape our choices with greater awareness, skill, and wisdom. The interactive nature of this conference is, in the spirit of the poetic sciences, both experimental and experiential. The successful outcome of this meeting is in the hands, hearts, and minds of all partici- pants. Keynote addresses will raise our sights; inter- active panels will contribute to our knowledge; and working groups will address themselves to specific questions with practical import. All will be docu- mented for publication at a later date. This conference is a culturally significant, inter- disciplinary event where scientists, philosophers, business people, social innovators, and practical visionaries from diverse backgrounds will come to- gether to integrate their ideas and expertise. In a truly collaborative fashion, participants will meet to address topics that cut across traditional boundaries in an effort to see the critical issues and transforma- tive possibilities that connect us, rather than sepa- rate us. From such a vantage point, we expect to see solutions more easily. In addition to what occurs in the conference sessions, we especially look forward to the at- mosphere of warmth and friendship that will emerge by dining, celebrating, networking, and simply being together. Community building is an important aspect of our efforts to make the "global mind change" a reality. In exploring human consciousness, we have set a bold course for ourselves. Each of us owns a por- tion of the map, along with the skills, talents, and insights for following it. On behalf of our members, colleagues, friends, and Board, we want to extend to you a warm personal invitation to engage with us in the task of discovering more conscious, crea- tive ways of being. We welcome your participation. We look forward to meeting you this summer at the conference in Santa Clara.
