Emotional Intelligence and Spiritual Discernment

Presented: July 20, 2021
With Anne Papinchak

Discernment, or the ability to judge, to make “the best” decision, is a key reason we seek and nurture spiritual connection. In this context, Spiritual Connection is defined as being in relationship with, sensing the greater than. We ask for the freedom, insight and/or wisdom to gain clarity for our next best step, to move through a difficult time, to see/feel the choices before us, to make the “best decision”. Emotional Intelligence is fundamental to discernment and the process of discernment deepens and expands emotional intelligence. Together in this session we will explore:

  • a discernment process/methodology based on Ignatian Spirituality
  • how discernment requires and deepens emotional intelligence, and
  • ways a spiritual director/prayer companion senses emotional intelligence to support the discernment process
