Spiritual Intelligence : A new way of being
Aocording to the philosopher Danah Zohar (who coined the idea of spiritual intelligence), we live in a 'spiritually dumb' culture, alienated from each other, too busy to take time to reflect, and trying desperately to juggle the myriad pulls and pushes of life without cracking up. How can we find meaning from meaninglessness, hope from despair, reconciliation from alienation and wholeness from fragmentation? In this book, Brian Draper asks how ordinary people, whether religious or not, can nudge themselves (or be gently nudged) to live on a daily basis with increasing integrity, wholeness and well-being - to become more spiritually intelligent. The book is split into 4 main sections: 'awakening', 'seeing your world afresh', 'living the change' and 'passing it on'. The narrative style is contemplative, reflective and engaging.
