Noetic Sciences: Practices for Personal and Collective Transformation” will be offered in Lucca (Italy) on 12-16 September 2011.

Quoting the event website:
Noetic Sciences combine the powers of keen observation and logic with the deep authority of inner wisdom to see clearly, to heal, and to transform our lives and our world. Join integrative medicine physician Lee Lipsenthal, MD along with psychologist and mind-body medicine researcher Cassandra Vieten, PhD to learn practices grounded in science and the world’s wisdom traditions that support and sustain the transformative process in your own life and in the lives of those with whom you work. Building on a model of transformative change developed from over a decade of research, learn what stimulates positive transformations, where the process can be diverted, and how you can creatively engage with its unfolding with your whole self: mind, body and spirit. Our focus will be to renew, balance mind with heart, and realign with our deeper nature, a true source of healing and transformation.

Grace Patricia Kelly, Princess of Monaco (November 12, 1929 – September 14, 1982) was an American actress who, in April 1956, married Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, to become Princess consort of Monaco, styled as Her Serene Highness The Princess of Monaco, and commonly referred to as Princess Grace.

Princess Charlene Wittstock wore a wedding dress in off-white duchess silk by Giorgio Armani Prive with a boat-neck collar, and a 5 meter-long train. With its clean lines, the dress seemed like it was channeling some of the legendary elegance of Charlene’s predecessor, the late Princess Grace. These are Princess Charlene Wittstock wedding dress pictures.
