What is Creedia?
Creedia is an online community for individuals seeking to express themselves and connect with others. Creedia provides forums for learning, exploring, and sharing traditional, spiritual and philosophical values and beliefs.
Creedia was developed out of the notion that sharing and discussing core values lies at the root of tolerance and co-existence. Only through honest, open, and meaningful discussion can we develop insight into our own and others' beliefs.
How it works:
Members create profiles where they continuously track their spiritual journey, log their values, and categorize themselves and their beliefs according to personally created labels. Choosing Ways allows members to show what they believe and how they actualize those beliefs. Discussion topics from across all spectrums of thought offer a chance for members to share stories, learn insights, and challenge each other. Members then have the ability to interact in public forums, or privately through messages and comments.
