Living in Balance: Spiritual Intelligence (Danah Zohar) (2000)
How smart are you? Maybe the more relevant question is, "What is your spiritual capacity?"
In the 20th century, IQ was the popular way to numerically measure someone's intelligence, but it became apparent to some that IQ was not a strong indicator of a successful life. Because of this, the concept of emotional intelligence (EQ) was developed, which measures one's situational awareness and ability to adapt to that situation. A high EQ enables you to maximize the traditional intelligence that you have.
Danah Zohar takes intelligence a step further, making the case for spiritual intelligence (SQ). The core of spiritual intelligence is the quest for meaning in life. Someone with a high SQ has access to meaning, purpose, and value in their thinking processes.
Rooted in science, Zohar explains the research and neurology supporting SQ, discusses the physical benefits of SQ and provides techniques on how to develop a higher SQ.
