Goal of the Study

To clarify the relations between Spiritual Sensibility and Emotional Intelligence through an in-depth qualitative analysis of a first-person narrative of a participant in an intensive spiritual program (the 30-day Ignatian Spiritual Exercises Retreat).

Intensive Spiritual Program : 30-day Ignatian Spiritual Exercises

The Ignatian Spiritual Exercises are an intensive

Christian spiritual practice to help people attain

a state of unitive consciousness so as to be

“contemplative in action”.

participant
Participant

The narrative analyzed in this case study corresponds to a 33 years old women, Catholic nun, who participated for the first time in the intensive spiritual program.

instruments
Instruments

Spontaneous self-biographic narrative in a diary format that was elaborated by the participant throughout de 30-day duration of the program.

procedure
Procedure

In-depth qualitative analysis by means of a combination of a Grounded Theory Methodology and methods of textual discourse analysis.

results
Results

The analysis of the self-biographic narrative yielded 73 categories grouped in 6 core categories: (1) Contextual Information, (2) Daily Organization, (3) Reflexive Comments, (4) Experience of the Spiritual Exercises, (5) Synthetic Summary (6) Global Evaluation.

Results

The 73 emergent categories were classified according to the components of the Spiritual Sensitivity (2s) and Emotional Intelligence (EI), and they were distributed thus:

discussion
Discussion

The distribution of the unities and their overlap shows the relation between Spiritual Sensitivity and Emotional Intelligence, and with the Spiritual Exercises.

discussion1
Discussion

At least, in the context of the analyzed case study, Emotional Intelligence could be considered a manifestation of Spiritual Sensitivity applied to the field of emotions.

discussion2
Discussion

Nevertheless, to extend this conclusion to a more generic context depends on the meaning attributed to the term “spiritual”.

discussion3
Discussion

If the spiritual experience is considered as another field of human experience, then the relationship between 2s and EI should not be that of subordination but of hierarchical horizontality.

discussion4
Discussion

If the spiritual experience is considered superordinate to the others (i.e. as founded in the full awareness that sustains the experience of all the others) then it is coherent to represent it as hierarchically superior.
