The Spiritual Intelligence Certificate is a program that teaches participants how to cultivate and apply spirituality in their personal and professional lives. The program is designed for therapists who want to help their clients with spiritual issues, for anyone interested in exploring spirituality for themselves, and for psychedelic facilitators who want to enhance their ability to support clients who have spiritual or mystical experiences during psychedelic journeys. The program is also a prerequisite for those who want to pursue the Transpersonal & Psychedelic Practitioner Certificate.
The program covers the concept and practice of spiritual intelligence (SI), which is not based on religion or the supernatural, but on connection. SI is the ability to access and use one’s inner wisdom, compassion, and creativity to cope with challenges, find meaning and purpose, and transcend one’s ego. SI has been shown to have positive effects on mental health and well-being. SI is also essential for psychedelic facilitators, as many clients report having profound spiritual or mystical experiences that can transform their worldview and identity. The program will provide theoretical and practical tools to develop and apply SI in various contexts.
Tatayo (“Fruit of the Wind”) first arrived in Gabon in 1971 at the age of 21 and became a Gabonese citizen. In 1979, he became the first white person to be initiated into the Bwiti Fang tradition in Gabon. In 1994, he was initiated into the Misokko tradition. As a guide for numerous expeditions and missions, including those of National Geographic, the BBC, and others, Tatayo is considered to have “opened the door” to westerners in Gabon.
