Fondly referred to as the Celtic Sage, Irish-born spiritual teacher Derek O’Neill inspires and uplifts people from all walks of life, offering guidance to influential world leaders, businesses, celebrities, athletes and everyday people alike. Distilled from his life work in psychotherapy, a martial arts career and study with wise yogis and Indian and Tibetan masters, Derek translates ancient wisdom into modern day teachings to address the biggest challenges facing humanity today.

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 booksworkshopsspeaking 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. Background Derek ran a successful psychotherapy practice, has achieved master black belt, addressed the United Nations, spoken at the Parliament of the World’s Religions, written over 20 personal development books, been featured in numerous radio and TV programs and even hosted his own radio shows, but his most cherished achievement is his humanitarian work.
