Overview

"What is spirituality? What kinds of experiences are considered "spiritual"? What does it mean to "be" spiritual. Do spiritual experiences help or hinder psychological health? Is there such a thing as spiritual intelligence? These are some of the challenging questions that Dr. Kathleen Noble tackles in this provocative book. Riding the Windhorse is an exploration of the concept of spiritual intelligence and the ways in which this frame of mind can promote psychological health. Noble examines the historical split between science and spirituality in order to understand how widespread spiritual experiences are in the general population and the effects these powerful experiences can have on people's everyday lives. Throughout the book she shows how spiritual intelligence is an innate human potential that can be a catalyst for psychological growth and healing. Spiritual intelligence is not a static product, but a dynamic and fluid process that can transform one's personal and community life."--BOOK JACKET.
