Sacred Intelligence - The Book
Doubt, fear, self-loathing, and detachment from a spiritual life are symptoms of an injured spirit. The chaos of our daily lives often keeps us from healing those symptoms, developing healthy relationships, and learning to maximize our Sacred Intelligence.
Through Sacred Intelligence: The Essence of Sacred, Selfish, and Shared Relationships, Dr. Terrlyn Curry Avery describes how healing must begin with a loving relationship with the Sacred and with ourselves before we can have loving relationships with others.
Using a three-fold understanding of the sacred, selfish, and shared relationships we all encounter, Dr. Curry Avery illustrates how we can access and use our Sacred Intelligence to create and maintain healthier relationships.
Sacred Intelligence clearly outlines an approach to spiritual healing, with guidelines for personal meditation, reflection questions, and space for self-evaluation. True, modern-day stories of sacrifice, awareness, and hope begin each section. Each chapter offers a sacred passage to help elevate understanding about the importance of each person's journey.
Dr. Curry Avery's passion behind Sacred Intelligence is fueled by the belief that 'relating' on both a spiritual and human level is crucial to the direction of our lives and allows us to live out our full potential. Sacred Intelligence is a balm that any reader can apply to his or her spirit. The prognosis is healing, understanding, and peace.

"It wasn't until I read Elizabeth Gilbert's "Eat, Pray, Love" that I started to understand God in a way that made sense to me. In particular, this quote spoke to me: "God dwells within you, as you yourself, just the way you are." Up until that point, not only didn't I believe in God, I didn't UNDERSTAND God. Since then, I've been on a quest to understand God, knowing that it's also a journey to truly understanding myself, which, in turn, helps me understand and serve others.
Dr. Avery's book provides wonderful examples (and questions that I could answer for myself) that deepened my understanding how God dwells within me AS me...and in others as they are. It also promotes personal responsibility in a way that feels empowering rather than burdensome or preachy.
I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to dive deep and understand themselves better, especially within the context of spirituality (which I came to later in life)."
