2017 Institute for Soul-Centered Leadership Summer Intensive Spiritual Intelligence: An Essential Tool for the Transformative Leader

Spiritual Intelligence as defined by Cindy Wigglesworth is: “The ability to behave with wisdom and compassion , while maintaining inner and outer peace, regardless of the situation.” Wigglesworth has identified 21 skills of spiritual intelligence. Among these are: Awareness of Ego self/Higher Self; living your purpose and values; being a wise and effective leader/change agent; making compassionate and wise decisions and keeping Higher Self in charge. In this day and a half intensive we will learn practices that help us to cultivate the above skills which strengthen our ability to lead with wisdom and compassion. By incorporating these skills into our lives and leadership we are better able to lead others through transformative change and awaken to the new levels of consciousness that are necessary to bring our work to fruition.

Participants in the summer Intensive will have the opportunity to take the Twenty-One Skills of Spiritual Intelligence Inventory at a reduced fee.
This is a CEU Accredited class. Professional Counselors, Chaplains, and Social Workers earn 9 hours of continuing education.

Mindfulness Meditation Clinic
Meditation has been studied over 30 years and is an evidence-based method that counteracts daily stress responses. The effects have been shown in MRIs of the brain, in biochemical changes in blood, and even in genetic changes in the body.
This mind-body method has been proven to significantly improve health and quality of life for patients with illnesses that are caused or made worse by stress, including obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, pain and fatigue syndromes, mood disorders and many others. It has also been shown to decrease complications in cancer treatment, surgical procedures, and improve pain in both acute and chronic pain disorders. It has been shown to also improve attention, increase creativity and provide greater cognitive flexibility.
This stress-reduction workshop will help each participant to:
  • Understand stress and disease affect the body and its consequences
  • Become familiar with current research on meditation and its role in stress-reduction and healing
  • Learn and practice a simple mindfulness, evidenced based method to reduce stressful stimuli

Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life

“All faiths insist that compassion is the test of true spirituality and that it brings us into relation with the transcendence we call God, Brahman, Nirvana, or Dao. Each has formulated its own version of what is sometimes call the Golden Rule, ‘Do not treat others as you would not like them to treat you,’ or in its positive form, ‘Always treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself.’ Further, they all insist that you cannot confine your benevolence to your own group; you must have concern for everybody – even your enemies.” ?Karen Armstrong
With social media (Facebook, Twitter and others), we have a wonderful opportunity to reach out and connect with people all over the world in the comfort of home. Are we connecting compassionately? Are we choosing words and images that reflect our true values? Join me each first Friday of the month during the coming year as we gather to reflect on the twelve steps from Karen Armstrong’s book “Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life”. Purchase of the book is required. A limited number of copies will be available for purchase at the Cove. Let’s gather for lunch and compassion. As the Dalai Lama said, “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” This quarter we look at: Empathy (April), Mindfulness (May), and Action (June)
