Igniting our Spiritual Intelligence through Souldrama®: A New Holistic Group Model to
Enrich Our Lives, Our Relationships and Our World
Today Spiritual Intelligence is considered by many to be the most important of our intelligences, and has the power to transform our life, civilization, the planet and the course of history. How do we move from immature ego-driven behaviors to more mature higher self-driven - from competition to co-creation? How can we develop the ability to hear the voice of our higher self, to understand and transcend the voice of our ego, and to be guided by deep wisdom and compassion?Souldrama®, an outgrowth of psychodrama, is an experiential group method that aligns all three of our intelligences, the rational, emotional and spiritual to move past the resistance in our lives and to ignite our spiritual intelligence. Multiculturally, it crosses diversity by putting spirituality into action within the group promoting cross cultural growth and understanding through connection, creativity and spontaneity. This new holistic group action model has been published as a new action model for the 12-step recovery program (Miller, 2013). As an international program, it has been presented many times for psychologists, faculty’s in Indonesia, Holland, Portugal, Brazil, Lithuania, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Holland, England, India and Mexico.
We are all agents of change. The task of this generation is to cut through the illusion that we live in separate worlds. Today, if we want to change systems, we have to change human behavior; however, human behavior is not so easily changed. The main responsibility of a true group leader today is to change the motivations that drive behavior, enabling people to achieve real transformation. The only way the world will be transformed is for individuals to make changes in individual levels of consciousness . A truly intelligent person is not one who can simply memorize words and numbers; it is someone who can relate 'intelligently' to all the opportunities, simulations and problems provided by the environment. We can develop our rational intelligence with the internet and computers by ourselves; we can access our Emotional Intelligence by ourselves; however, we cannot develop our Spiritual Intelligence alone for the key words here are to relate and to interact.
No matter where we live, a large and important part of our spiritual journey is the power and the fellowship of the group. Our need to talk, interact and simply be with each other is part of our development. If we want to be sensitive to others and make our intentions conscious, we need to examine ourselves in relationship to others. A group is the most feasible method for initiating, improving and evaluating connections.
In a world that is rapidly changing, in both technology and in the social and cultural realms, social norms are stretched, roles are changing and people are looking globally to find a sense of meaning, social and spiritual connectedness. This requires the development of the capacity for creativity, and that in turn involves an integration of language, rationality, perception, intuition, emotion, imagery, and the felt sense of the body in action. In other words, we need to balance the left hemisphere of the brain, or our rational intelligence, which deals more with language and reason, with the right hemisphere or our spiritual intelligence, intuition, imagery, emotion, and action, bridging the gap between the right and left hemispheres by working through the expression of our feelings, our emotional intelligence. It is then that we will be able to awaken our higher purpose and create spiritually intelligent leadership. Throughout our development and the development of technology the left-brain functions have been increasingly emphasized and the right-brain functions relatively neglected. Research in creativity in the last century has shown that both left- and right-brain functioning is needed for optimal mental flexibility, especially that which has to include considerations of human relationships, morale, motivation, and a sense of team spirit or community.

What is Spiritual Intelligence?
Souldrama is a seven stage spiritual action model of growth and discovery designed to awaken your higher purpose!
How do we live a soulful life? We are all on a life-long journey; it is a search for who we are and why we are here. It expands our consciousness, awakens our heart, and clears our mind.
Is your spiritual development important to you? If so, Souldrama can help.
A new spirituality requires us to know the presence of Spirit .. the Universal Presence ... in all things and forms.
This Universal Presence has little to do with intelligence, for the universe is not an intellectual process. The intellect is helpful, but our true selves are a reflection of our hearts and they are the wiser part of ourselves. A new wisdom is unfolding in accordance with the demands of our current times.
People everywhere are searching for well-being: for meaning, direction, fulfillment, health, and happiness. To have our needs met, we look to the outside world to feel useful and appreciated. We long for great relationships, to love and to be loved. Little do we realize that the process has to start internally, if we look within we can find all of our answers.
Behind all of these human desires is the creative impulse of our soul; it moves through each of us and through the world we exist in. When we can understand, connect, and respond to soul, we find meaning in all of our experiences, even the most difficult ones. When we resist the soul because we don't understand what's happening; we become ill, have accidents, experience emotional pain, and struggle with money as well as work and interpersonal relationships.
Life's Purpose - What is yours?
Few of us clearly or intuitively know our life's purpose because our lives are clogged with roadblocks and pitfalls. Through Souldrama, we can actually see and re-enact how our lives have unfolded and can begin to understand our life's lessons. We can discover why we are here and what is preventing us from connecting with our true inner selves and moving forward.
Change is hard. As human beings we prefer constancy and comfort to instability and uncertainty, even if we perceive the outcome as better for us. When change comes, we try to avoid the transition because we are afraid to lose control of our selves and the situation. The symptoms of avoiding change are: being indecisive, ambivalent, impulsive, emotionally detached, and by procrastinating. We become stuck in careers and roles that no longer serve us, we outgrow relationships, and become lost in our addictions and codependency. How do we consciously move past this resistance and step through the doorway to transformation?
The illumination of knowing our life's purpose and the satisfaction of fully living it brings clarity, meaning, and fulfillment into our lives. When we are consciously aligned with our deepest reasons for being, we tap into rich reserves of energy, personal power, and passion. Our lives begin to flow in new and delightful ways and it brings a peaceful stillness to our souls. As we experience the depths of our hearts we are able to love ourselves without judgment and learn to extend it to others.
When we become our authentic selves, we can offer the world our gifts, talents, and skills with the clarity of our intention and without fear, finally living our dreams.

Soul in Action
Souldrama spurs the soul into action bringing forth it's spontaneity and creativity. This Group Action Process moves us from our Rational Intelligence (what I think) to our Emotional Intelligence (what I feel) and Spiritual Intelligence (what I am) so that we can integrate all three in our lives.
Souldrama offers seven stages, or doorways, of spiritual growth and transformation. As a Group Action Process, Souldrama helps you: overcome roadblocks in careers and relationships, create new roles in your life, release the light and peacefulness within the core of your being, illuminate your spiritual gifts, and recognize as well as define your higher purpose in life. When you step through each doorway, you will uncover a challenge within yourself to overcome before you can open the next one. With the completion of each stage comes the gift of illumination, a glimpse of your authentic self, to bring with you to light the way on your journey of self-discovery. Each door will lead you to a higher state of spiritual development: doors One and Two move you beyond your Rational Intelligence, doors Three and Four past your Emotional Intelligence, and doors Five and Six lead to your Spiritual Intelligence. Door Seven is the integration and transformation of all three along with the wisdom and knowledge of the process, your inner journey...your life's purpose.
The processes of Souldrama are akin to a pilgrimage or rite of passage. The common elements are to (1) Accept the challenge to journey for a specific purpose; (2) Find the faith and truth in one's vision needed to set out; (3) Learn how to invoke the strength of spirit and perseverance; (4) Listen and allow the soul to speak and work through you; (5) Overcome the obstacles that slow you down; (6) To perform the appropriate rituals and connect with the transcendent self at the destination of the pilgrimage; and (7) To return to one's home community, bringing back enlightenment and blessings.
On our Journey of Spiritual Transformation there are many doors that we may choose to enter and many pathswe can choose to tread. Transformation is a cyclical process and we intuitively know when it is time for a change. Your challenges may seem insurmountable, but with the Group Process of Souldrama, we can support you from the beginning of the journey to the end result: living your life's higher purpose filled with love, self-acceptance, and peace.
