We empower people to refine and reach their goals by providing research-based content to help improve thinking, feeling, and behavior patterns.
We envision a world where individuals, organizations, and governments intentionally use research-based strategies to optimize their ability to evaluate reality clearly and make effective decisions, empowering all of us to live more happy, meaningful, altruistic, and flourishing lives.
We create engaging content that helps people learn and practice rational thinking and effective giving. We also provide content and marketing support for other organizations that aim to build an altruistic and flourishing world. Want to know when we have something new?

Check out our blog posts on agency, emotions and rational thinking, finding life meaning and purpose, effective giving, mental health, communication and relationships, probabilistic thinking, and reaching your goals.

- "I really enjoyed the workshop. It helped me to see some of the problems I may be employing in my thinking about life and other people... Something I gained from this workshop are tools to help me be a less stressed-out person."
- "I have gained a new perspective after attending the workshop. In order to be more analytical, I have to take into account that attention bias is everywhere. I can now further analyze and make conclusions based on evidence. With relation to the fundamental attribution error, it can give me a chance to keep a more open mind. Which will help me to relate to others more, and have a different view of the ‘map’ in my head.”
- “From this workshop, I have gained the knowledge of how to better assess the conflicts in a situation and how to resolve the issues… The benefits of this workshop for those who participate can include: greater self-awareness, greater strategic planning, and greater satisfaction with life.”
- Written testimonial from the leader of the Humanists of Houston-Clear Lake chapter, Jeff Boxell, about our virtual workshop: "The Humanists of Houston (HOH) hosted a Freethinker Forum on Nov 6th, 2015, where the topic was finding purpose and meaning in a secular life using science and featured a discussion/workshop led via a Skype session by Gleb Tsipursky, PhD. A group of 25 humanists from the Bay Area Unitarian Univeralist Church or surrounding area completed the one hour workshop and accompanying worksheets and engaged in lively discussion. The overall feedback from the group was very positive. The workshop provided a framework for both individual reflection and group interaction on the topic of finding meaning in life. The pragmatic tools and strategies Gleb puts forth proved an effective guide for a group that prides itself on being rationale thinkers. One takeaway from the course, and the reason our humanist group exists, is to find your tribe and engage with them in meaningful discussion and volunteer events that improve the world. As the lead of this particular American Humanist Association chapter, I highly recommend this workshop. While ideally having Gleb available in person to lead the course would be the best approach, our use of Skype worked very effectively. Gleb was very polite, eager to assist and smartly responded to all questions put forth by the group. A big thank you Gleb for your assistance with this forum."
