In an increasingly fragmented world, we seek inner wholeness, spiritual purpose-and love. While wanting to progress on our spiritual path, however, we are often held back by our sense of wounding. To be truly capable of giving and receiving love, we have to embrace our essential natures and heal our emotional wounds while practicing acceptance and forgiveness. With its unique blend of psychology and spirituality, our experiential workshops are designed to guide you on your inner journey to healing.
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.
