Rajatiedon Yhteistyö ry is an ideologically, religiously and politically independent association of fringe knowledge organizations, communities and individuals (see key objectives). Our mission is to map the frontier area of human knowledge, the ideas and currents that operate within it, and to promote cooperation and share relevant information between communities and people in the field. A more detailed definition of the association can be found in the association’s rules. Inquiries and contacts: +358 (0)44 9792544 (Wed – Fri 12-18 | Sat 12-14).
Every year since 1983 (except in 2020-2021), Rajatiedon Yhteistyö ry has been organizing Spirit and Knowledge expo, where is on display cross-section from the mind-body-spirit activities in Finland. Expo of Spirit and Knowledge is oldest and the most comprehensive Finnish fair in this field. Most recent events there has been 3000-3500 guests and over 200 exhibitors.

In addition of Spirit and Knowledge expo in Helsinki, the society has been organizing earlier expos in Imatra and Tampere with the same name, as well as smaller events in cooperation with other organizations.
Rajatiedon Yhteistyö’s (Mind-Body-Spirit Cooperative Association’s) spiritual helpline has been set up to help people who have experienced helplessness, fear, anxiety or, in the worst case, a crisis because of issues in the area of fringe knowledge. This can happen if events and phenomena are too difficult to interpret for the experiencer, or if he or she does not have any model of explanation for what he or she has experienced from his or her previous experience.
The helpline is open on Thursdays and Sundays from 18:00 to 22:00 on 040 913 1038. The phone is answered by trained emergency personnel, calls cost the normal call charge. Helpline concelor trainings will be organized every few years to train new volunteers.
Since 1993, Rajatiedon Yhteistyö ry has distributed scholarships for fringe knowledge research and development activities. A few scholarship applications have been submitted each year. Scholarships have been available to both individuals and communities. In total, scholarships worth around € 50,000 have been awarded to more than 70 different applicants.
Library for Fringe Knowledge has served the public interested in esotericism, paranormal and spirituality since 1995, when it operated as part of the Rajatieto Center in the center of Helsinki, maintained by the association.

The library is open Wed-Fri 12-18 & Sat 12-14, as well as in connection with public events organized by the association.

Since April 2018, literary circles have been organized in Studio Rajatieto on Thursdays at 6 pm, as part of the activities of the Library for Fringe Knowledge, which serves on the premises.

The association’s website will develop a modern communication platform and a virtual community service for the association’s members and anyone interested in fringe knowledge, which will work naturally together with social media services.
