Who We Are
Open Minds is based upon a belief in independent choice and freedom of mind. With your help, we will make the world a better place.
Sharing our Knowledge
The Open Minds Foundation is a group of people who understand manipulation and undue influence and want to share their knowledge. We bring together counselors and scholars from the many disciplines where manipulation is treated or studied. We offer advice about manipulation wherever it occurs – in partnerships, families, cults, gangs, grooming rings, terrorist groups and even totalitarian countries.
We promote education about the dangers of human predators and the techniques they use, from propaganda and sales tricks, to thought reform and hypnosis. There are Open Minds Foundations in the United States, the United Kingdom and Belgium, with more countries ready to join. As a group of interlocking charities, we share the same desire to proof people against manipulation in all its many forms. All donations are used to promote our work, most of which is provided free of charge.
We are developing new projects as we grow, and are always open to new ways to better understand and share our findings.
