SEQ Profiler Certification (10 ACE Units)

Spiritual Emotional Intelligence (SEQ) is all about connection—to yourself, people you know, and the larger world. How can we live more congruently, more often? You might think of SEQ as a way to supercharge the Noble Goal—that overarching sense of purpose that helps us stay in alignment across all areas of our lives.

When we consider both the spiritual and emotional aspects of ourselves, we gain new perspectives about ourselves and our relationships. Building on the SEI (Six Seconds Emotional Intelligence Assessment), this new SEQ assessment includes additional questions to capture the connection dimension in three domains:  Awareness, Belonging, and Insight.
