Why become a member or friend?
The MIND Foundation is a science organization giving a voice to mindful, rational and evidence-based psychedelic science and practice. As such we are reaching beyond a purely academic organization. We are actively addressing the cultural and social issues that come with the psychedelic experience – both in benefits and harms.
Our memberships also guarantee a range of benefits: from reduction of fees for conferences and trainings to special access to information. It is possible to enroll at any given time. Memberships will be active for twelve months and then be renewed unless you cancel them. Find detailed information by clicking on the membership icons above. Additionally memberships are a requirement for becoming a member of staff with the MIND Foundation.
Discretion and transparency
Investigating the subject of the psychedelic experience – be it on scientific or on private grounds – remains stigmatized for a number of people, among whom especially academic employers often hold reservations. This is commonly based on incomprehension or plain lack of knowledge, which is bound to change over time through the development of an impartial and critical discourse encouraged among others by MIND. Yet, for this very reason we position ourselves clearly: anybody who enrolls as a member of MIND has full control concerning which part of his/her identity is disclosed. We will never expose your information to the public. It will be you who chooses the level of visibility: as a discrete and silent member, as an active volunteer or intern, a staff member, through participating in our online forums, or in the form of a full public presence.
