We believe you.
Let’s discover together what’s next.
For more than 25 years, OPUS has provided support to Experiencers of every kind of paranormal and anomalous phenomena.
OPUS, the Organization for Paranormal Understanding and Support, is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization created in 1994 to offer support and education to individuals having unusual, paranormal, or anomalous personal experiences. Since that time, what began as a small group of dedicated individuals has grown into a network of professionals, and a thriving community of Experiencers, that is worldwide.
OPUS, since 1994, has been helping people that have had paranormal experiences by providing a confidential online support group and referrals to mental health practitioners and hypnotherapists. I would highly recommend their services.

OPUS gives us a safe place to describe our experiences without any fear of ridicule, but more importantly, it gives me (and us) a place to receive encouragement and support by others who truly understand what I’ve been through.
OPUS Support Group Member since 2010
It’s been a complete pleasure to interact with the members. I definitely enjoy the meetings whether in person or remotely…I actually wish that everyone could have a paranormal experience sometime in their life. Such experiences knock down the walls we put up around our thinking regarding what’s possible.
UAP/UFO WHISTLEBLOWER PROTECTIONS INCREASE
"We can't be afraid of asking questions and we can't be afraid of the truth."
Representative Robert Garcia (D-CA)
Subcommittee on National Security, The Border, and Foreign Affairs Hearing on UAP
July 26, 2023
The United States government continues to expand protections for, and investigations in, reports of UAP/UFO craft, and reverse engineering programs. As the stigma of reporting these topics continues to be removed, OPUS expects that additional individuals will feel greater agency to come forward and acknowledge their own experiences.
We wholeheartedly support this effort, and are working to expand our network of providers to assist these individuals and their families.
The Unknown Other and the Existential Proposition of Alien Contact
by Les Velez, Co-Founder of OPUS
In The Unknown Other, author, chairman and co-founder of OPUS, Les Velez, weaves together the history of OPUS, perspectives on newly released UFO/UAP information presented by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and first-hand accounts from Experiencers of encounters with non-human intelligences.
These thought-provoking parallels suggest that, with greater acceptance of the phenomena and the growing number individuals experiencing them, perhaps more will finally be understood. Forward by Linda Moulton Howe, creator of Earthfiles. All proceeds go directly to OPUS.
“The Unknown Other and the Existential Proposition of Alien Contact is a must-read for ufologists, experiencers, and those close to them, and, perhaps most importantly, for those healthy skeptics who are searching for hard evidence as they consider these in many ways dark and disturbing phenomena.”

“Most of the abduction stories I had never heard of before and were unusually unique. Gives you much more food for thought!!!”
