Spiritual Intelligence: A New Way of Being
We live in a spiritually dumb society, but Christian culture rarely seems much brighter. How can you – Christian or not – rediscover your ‘spiritual intelligence’ in these crazy days? And how can you use it to unleash your God-given potential, to transform your life, your work, and your world?
What is spiritual intelligence, and how can it liberate us as followers of Christ – and as artists, activists, leaders of businesses and organisations – in turbulent times? The ego drives us so strongly that – even as Christians – we struggle to recognise our calling and realise our God-given potential. So how can we overhear and ‘flow’ from our true self? And why do business coaches, Zen masters and Christian mystics all seem to point the same way at this vital moment in history? Brian will explain (and share personal experience of) how business is exploring ‘SI’ as a means of helping leaders through profound personal and corporate transformation – and why this has major opportunities and challenges for Christians.
