Programs: Our main goal is to recover the mental health of former members of high-control religious groups, through education online and interacting with other people seeking the same.
We are people from across the world standing up for humanity and human rights. We expose spiritual abuse from high control religious groups, particularly Jehovah''s Witnesses, whatever their claims to higher authority may be. Our purpose is educate the public about such movements, provide an online support network where everyone is welcome to contribute and to enable a safe non-judgmental place for people to find healing and comfort and the community of their fellows.
We are a global online network with independence from government, corporate, national and organised religious interests.
Our vision is of a world in which every person - regardless of race, religion, gender, sexuality or ethnicity - enjoys all of the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards, specifically with regard to freedom of religion.
We invite you to join our online community - to take action and to stop high control groups from ruining lives. This means new fresh content every day from the cult awareness community. We welcome the input of all for publication.
The people now working with us are volunteers, with a common goal in mind, and that is to create a heterogeneous "congregation." That being an online community comprised of former cult members covering the full spectrum of religiosity and spirituality. This is a cooperative effort of equals and any departure will not be viewed personally. It will especially feature all things important to helping the Jehovah''s Witness exit the Watchtower Society as painlessly as possible, if that is their wish, and to provide them with a supermarket of future options. There is somewhere else to go! It is a loose-knit cooperative, begun initially through a small circle of friends.
