Falmouth Jewish Congregation welcomes the public to an interactive breakfast talk entitled “Spiritual Intelligence,” by Dr. Richard Wolman, psychologist, teacher, and author of the book Thinking with Your Soul: Spiritual Intelligence and Why It Matters.
Payment may be made at the door or in advance by sending or bringing a check to the Falmouth Jewish Congregation office.
The fall months mark the start of the Jewish New Year, during which Jewish tradition calls on us to engage in a practice called, in Hebrew, cheshbon ha’nefesh, an accounting of the soul. But how does each of us define and engage in spirituality? Falmouth Jewish Congregation invites you, regardless of your faith tradition, to engage with us in an exercise of examining your spirituality under the guidance of our member Dr. Richard Wolman.
Dr. Wolman defines spiritual intelligence as: “The human capacity to ask questions about the meaning of life, and to experience simultaneously the seamless connection between each of us and the world in which we live.” In this interactive talk, Dr. Wolman will discuss his book and his “Spiritual Inventory,” which gives us a snapshot of the areas in our lives in which there is a strong emphasis on spirituality. The resulting self-knowledge enables us to strengthen relationships, improve communication and ultimately live more fully.
Attendees are asked to access and take the PsychoMatrix Spirituality Inventory online before this event so that Dr. Wolman can engage the audience with his findings and so that participants can offer their reactions and feedback about taking the inventory. To do so, visit http://psychomatrix.com/spirituality-inventory/.
When you fill out the demographics (age, gender and the like), there is a little box that says Group Code. Enter “FJC.” This will enable you to take the PSI for free and also allow Dr. Wolman to look at the scores of our group, if it is large enough, to see any commonalities.
A member of the faculty of the Harvard Medical School for over 25 years, Richard N. Wolman, Ph.D., is an experienced clinician, teacher and researcher. He is a clinical psychologist with expertise in psychotherapy with individuals, couples, families and children, and president and research director of PsychoMatrix (home of the Spiritual Inventory). Dr. Wolman teaches the “Psychology of Influence” at Harvard and offers workshops about spirituality in the workplace. His research focuses on spirituality, child custody, psychotherapy, dreams and child development. He has extensive experience with personality testing in relation to the dating and matchmaking process, where he applies theory to practice in coaching singles searching for meaningful relationships.
