CARDEA believes that a danger posed by modern life comes from the loss of a sense of “The Sacred.” However, there is the ability to treat one’s life as a creative force–unlocking thresholds to a deeper understanding. We call this threshold-experience “sacred originality.”
Sacred originality happens when we adventure inward, to reach something divine in us—a rediscovery of the roots of self appreciation, and a reconnection to the world “outside.” When we access this sight of sacredness, not only do we feel lively in our Being, we experience the world around us as full of life.
Indeed, it is for this reason that we chose our name to honor CARDEA, the Roman “threshold” goddess of hinges and handles—the tools that make doorways work.
CARDEA assists those who seek recovery from deep and entrenched psychological anguish, from behaviors that are out of control, as well as those who want a more awakened life and to expand their sense of existence. We see the barriers to growth as the result of lives habitualized, standardized and uniform. We therefore see a lot of good in one’s ability to withstand uncertainty, to find joy in novelty, and to be more creative with one’s pursuit of passion and well-being.
We are at the top of our respective fields in the inspired practice of personal growth.
