Curated Resources on Faith & Emotional Intelligence

emotional intelligence

It may seem as though “emotional intelligence” is at an all-time low point in our communities, but no need to despair. Considering how emotions play a role in all our interactions can be practiced and learned. Emotional intelligence is not only the seemingly innate ability to “read the room.” From family systems theory to the impact of sensory experiences to exploring “resonance,” emotional intelligence comes alive in our faith communities in myriad ways. Building reflection processes into everything we do is an important spiritual discipline.
