Infusing Impact with the Power of Science

The IONS Discovery Lab measurement core is available to workshop leaders at our EarthRise campus in northern California or online from anywhere in the world.

Whether you’re leading a workshop, facilitating a business meeting, or guiding an organizational retreat, IONS Discovery Lab can evaluate the outcomes of the experience through a robust scientific assessment. We provide deep insights not often found in traditional program surveys.


“Workshop leaders rarely get the chance to see just how their work is benefitting their participants without extraordinary expense. IDL allows them to scientifically evaluate their offering with ease and at no cost.” Helané Wahbeh, ND, IONS Director of Research

We’ll guide your participants to complete two brief questionnaires—one before and one after the experience—to capture a series of core measures, such as their sense of well-being, openness to innovation, and feelings of interconnectedness. We also include EEG measurements to understand their brain waves before and after your workshop.

We then analyze the data from the questionnaires to provide you with clear, evidence-based results about how the experience impacted your clients. This report can be used to further develop your offerings or improve your current programs.

How It Works

  1. Before your workshop, participants take about 30 minutes to complete the measures.
  2. Once the workshop has concluded, participants complete the measures a second time.
  3. Then IONS will send you an in-depth analysis that reveals how your participants were affected by your workshop.

A Significant and Meaningful Evaluation of Your Program

Upon completion of your workshop, you will receive a report on your participants’ changes in Core Measures. This IDL report includes basic demographics (e.g., age, gender, race/ethnicity, relationship status, education), and much more.

Hear from Workshop Leaders About Their Experiences

Working with the team at the IONS Discovery Lab was a great experience. Their research platform and methodologies were a good fit and I’m very satisfied with the outcome. The professionalism and authentic desire to support me throughout the project was exceptional. They provided great value and I am planning to launch more projects with them.

We wish to publicly express our gratitude to the IONS team. So far we have carried out two experiments in the IONS Discovery Lab to evaluate the effects that the Original Bioquantics (BO) protocol has on different aspects of people. IONS have surprised us by their seriousness, scientific rigor, technological capacity, ability to attract participants, willingness, organization, ability to accept challenges, speed, by their privileged setting in exceptional natural surroundings … and by their helpful collaboration … the world needs teams like IONS.
