After reading John’s book and chatting over the phone with him, it was quite apparent that the quality of John’s presentation was such that he had to be included on our summer agenda! I personally attended and can attest to the fact that the information and the lively discussion that we experienced was most useful, practical and beneficial. Our participants enjoyed not only the class, but John himself. He presented this valuable information in progressively more complex “bites” each week. Participants were sorry to come to the end of the series. Raising Consciousness, Improving Life, has something to meet everyone’s level of study. I highly recommend inviting John Smotherman to speak at your event. ~Laura Sutherland, Events Coordinator, Unity-Dallas

They (the other IONS chapters) told us you were great so we had to have you speak to us, but your presentation was even better than we expected! ~Gloria Hill,  Coordinator Institute of Noetic Sciences, Austin TX

Using Consciousness to Create the Life We Want

IONS, Austin TX | July 2012|Full Lecture

Great information and good ideas for practice that will make a difference! ~Shannon Looper, Organizer, What the Bleep Meetup, Dallas-Fort Worth

This was a very beneficial learning experience about how to bring out the best parts of yourself in everyday life and how to bring the higher self closer to the everyday self.  Putting theory into practice is important,as otherwise there is a disconnect between the two.  ~P.T.

I found it to be a very valuable exploration into living at a higher lever of consciousness.  It is extremely useful to be able to assess where my own weaknesses occur and have a plan to address these gaps.  How incredibly unique to be able to apply SMART goals to such a conceptual topic!  ~Lara Hanson, Communications Chair, Understanding Men Dallas
