IONS is a nonprofit which is marrying science with consciousness. Their goal:
"To create a shift in consciousness worldwide - where people recognize that we are all part of an interconnected whole and are inspired to take action to help humanity and the planet thrive."
They are providing scientific studies around this magical, mystical world to provide verifiable information to its existence.
William Buhlman is the author of Higher Self Now! and Adventures in the Afterlife, Adventures Beyond the Body, and The Secret of the Soul.
His website: www.astralinfo.org is a great place to go to learn about what he has learned personally, and how he can teach these skills to all of us.
There are Out-of-Body Intensive 6 Day Workshops at the Monroe Institute in Virginia. . . maybe I'll see you an one soon?
Reading Adventures Beyond the Body right now and am definitely intrigued.
