Announcement for Pilots

If you are a pilot who has observed UAPs, we would like to hear from you by participating in a brief survey conducted by Iya Whiteley, Ph.D. and Anne Tyler, M.S., LMFT.

We are seeking feedback from pilots about your interest in a variety of resources and collaboration on recommendations for aviation safety for pilots who have experienced UAPs.

Our digital home is currently in its refinement phase.

Our vision is to promote a positive narrative of exceptional experiences to foster transformative change, resilience, and holistic empowerment to ensure that every individual seeking resources and support is met with compassionate, knowledgeable allies on their journey.


Our mission is to contribute to the revolutionary change taking place in mental health care paradigms to deepen and embrace understanding of extraordinary experiences. We strive to support research and provide educational opportunities that cultivate a global network of professionals who deliver innovative services to experiencers. Our dedication extends to promoting an enlightened and affirmative discourse on the transformative power of exceptional experiences as a catalyst for a more empathetic world.

We create customized educational opportunities and curate resources for experiencers of anomalous phenomena that highlight the contributions of scholars and psychological experts within both fringe and mainstream disciplines. We promote worldwide accessibility and visibility of quality resources so that individuals seeking information and support are assured of expertise, compassion, and a pathway to resilience and well-being.
