Spiritual Intelligence: A key to survival in the 21st century.

An evening with Tanis Helliwell

Toronto, Ontario

Tuesday, February 27, 2001, 7:00 for 7:30 - 9:30 pm


You have heard about IQ (intellectual intelligence) and EQ (emotional intelligence). During the evening Tanis will help you discover how to measure your SQ (spiritual intelligence), how to develop it, how to recognize it and foster it in others.

There are three types of intelligence that determine our inner and outer success in life.

IQ (intellectual or rational intelligence).
Usually equated with having high logical, strategic, mathematical and linguistic talents. Good for solving problems.

EQ (emotional intelligence), Equally important as IQ in determining success. People with a high EQ relate well with others, have high self-esteem and respond appropriately to situations.

SQ (Spiritual Intelligence) Not a recognized intelligence to date but just as essential to our wellbeing. Puts our individual lives in larger context. Gives meaning and purpose in life and allows us to create new possibilities. SQ allows us to utilize our IQ and EQ in a unified way to express our gifts in the world in a way that betters not only our own life but also that of all beings. SQ is truly a global intelligence. It is found in great leaders such as Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Tommy Douglas and having SQ will increasingly become a determiner of success in this next decade and beyond. Why?
