Candice O’Denver is the founder of the Balanced View teachings, whose unique methodology begins and ends in the naturalness of our own open intelligence. It offers an education in the nature of mind, allowing people to realize their greatest potential and to be of benefit to all. This grassroots movement empowers people around the world to see their strengths and talents and contribute them for the benefit to all, enjoying increasing happiness and joy and tapping into their potential for living life in a deeply caring and beneficial way.
Candice studied in a Yale mathematics program for gifted children. At the age of 18, she attended a UCLA international program for young philosophers where she focused on the pragmatic application of philosophy to be of immediate, and permanent benefit. Bypassing undergraduate school, Candice was accepted into and completed graduate school, studying both critical theory and fine arts with a variety of professors at California College of the Arts, UC Berkeley, and Stanford.
Candice applies precise levels of organization and explanation used in computer science to arrive at specific results in the philosophy of mind, and has developed a comprehensive educational platform for studying the nature of intelligence. From her 44+ years innovating a comparative analysis of all systems designed to define human nature as well as a standardized comprehensive map for defining human nature in contemporary terms, Candice invented Balanced View, a standardized education in the nature of mind used throughout the world.
