God on the Brain - Developing Spiritual Intelligence

Developing Spiritual Awareness

Traditionally, intelligence has been measured purely on the basis of a person’s intellectual skills, measured in an IQ score, but now we recognise a host of different kinds of intelligence, including physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. And many see spiritual intelligence (SQ) as the central and most fundamental of the intelligences because it becomes a compass and source of guidance to all the rest.

But what is spiritual intelligence?

How can it be measured?

More importantly, how can it be grown?

And where does it fit into a Christian understanding of spirituality?

As well as exploring these questions, a main focus of this retreat will be on developing practices that can help to grow spiritual intelligence.

Dave Tomlinson is the vicar of a thriving parish in North London, an experienced Enneagram teacher, spiritual director and author, and a popular speaker and retreat leader.

All meals in Casa Roberto are included in the cost of £600 per person.  All transport during the retreat, including travel from and back to Perugia Airport, is provided by people carrier.  Additional costs include flights to and from Perugia airport. Please also allow 200 Euros for light lunches, evening meals out and incidental expenses.

What is this life…?

Retreat 2016This holiday retreat, for a small group, is for people who recognise the need to take a break and find refreshment.  There are times in most of our lives when it’s good to stop what we’re doing and take a break from all the activity… 

Sometimes illness or bereavement forces such a ‘break’ upon us; sometimes we choose to step off the treadmill for a while.  There will be plenty of time for rest and relaxation as we eat, talk, pray and travel together for seven beautiful mid-summer days in Umbria. 

Visits to Assisi, Gubbio and Lake Trasimeno are planned on alternate days.

At Umbrian Retreats, near Umbertide in Northern Umbria, Clive and Florence Morton have been running holiday retreats since 2010.  Accommodation is provided in Casa Roberto, Sopra and Terra.  

All meals at Casa Roberto are included in the cost of £600 per person and there are no single supplements.

Transport during the retreat, including travel from and back to Perugia Airport, is provided by people carrier.  Additional costs include flights to and from Perugia airport.  Please also allow 200 Euros for light lunches, evening meals out and incidental expenses.

A Franciscan Pilgrimage

Living with integrityThis pilgrimage will visit and spend time in the locations in Umbria that are now Franciscan sanctuaries: they form both a background and commentary on the conversion, ministry and spiritual legacy of St Francis. These sanctuaries contain some of the most profound works of art in the western Christian tradition, some witness to the simplicity of holiness, others are set in the most spectacular and dramatic landscapes. Montecastelli is less than an hour’s drive from all these holy places, allowing the maximum time to engage with the ethos unique to each place.

The proposed programme is: Monday morning arrive Perugia airport. Lunch, rest, introductory meeting and evening prayer, early evening visit to Montone (a small medieval hill top settlement) followed by supper at Casa Roberto.

Tuesday morning (after Morning Prayer) visits to San Damiano and the Carceri: lunch in Santa Maria del Angeli, followed by visits to Portiuncula and Rivotorto.

On return to Casa Roberto, rest and free time, supper followed by night prayer and reflection on the past day.

Wednesday morning (after Morning Prayer) an all day visit to Assisi: with group visits to the Basilica and Santa Chiara, followed by free time to explore. Evening as Tuesday.

Thursday: Visit to La Verna, lunch at La Verna, visit to Citta di Castello on return journey. On return, rest, followed by evening prayer and meal in a local ristorante. Friday: leave for Perugia airport.

Andrew Hawes has been an Anglican Priest since 1981 and since 1989 has been based in Edenham, Lincolnshire, at a small retreat and conference centre www.edenhamregionalhouse.org . He and his wife Sian have been visiting Assisi regularly since 1978 and have a great love for all things Italian.

All meals in Casa Roberto are included in the cost of £450 per person. All transport during the retreat, including travel from and back to Perugia Airport, is provided by people carrier. Additional costs include flights to and from Perugia airport. Please also allow 150‐200 Euros for light lunches, an evening meal out and incidental expenses.
