The Deviant Minds, NFP is interested in exploring alternative ways of thinking and paradigm shifting lifestyle choices that deviate from the socially accepted standards of what is considered “normal.” Our goal is to develop interactive perspectives that integrate academic research with a strong advocacy for open minded approaches to understanding social marginalization around taboos and an embodied spirituality. To do this we will examine supportive ideas from both science and spiritual belief systems that promote a balanced perspective about nature, nurture and harmonious well-being.
