Derek explains that spiritual intelligence is latent within every being. To reconnect with this higher intelligence, we do not get rid of the ego or hide from the experiences of our lives. Instead, we coherently tie them all together to observe the patterns and the messages they represent. If we listen to our higher-self (gut feeling), we will see that spiritual intelligence is uniting all our experiences into the highest wisdom, for the most productive and positive outcome. When we finally see all our experiences as messages that have come to benefit us, we are free to rise to unimaginable heights.Through books, workshops, speaking engagements and humanitarian work, Derek empowers others to increase their Spiritual Quotient and activate their highest potential, so they can bring harmony, happiness, and success back into their personal and professional lives.
