Psychology of Original Love began during a conversation about the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. The apple was bitten, and left unwhole. This was our original sin. But when Jesus died on the cross for us, when he sacrificed himself to bear our sins, His love gave us a second chance. His love gave us a chance to heal the bitten fruit of Eden.
We believe everyone deserves chances in life. It can be incredibly difficult to reach out to someone, especially a professional, not knowing if they are following the teachings of Christ. We began because we wanted to provide a safe, meditative, and nurturing space where the journey to love yourself, to love your fellow human beings, and to love God was not in conflict, but in harmony.
We came together as Christians and medical professionals because we believe that all of us deserve to love and be loved.
“No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”
1 John 4:12
