Have you come to a point in your life of realizing that wisdom of the heart is necessary for all human happiness and fulfillment? And that the most significant elements on your life journey rely on emotional intelligence?
If this is true for you, I invite you to attend the Becoming a Sun Workshop.
When you think about your life carefully, it is easy to see that high emotional intelligence is essential to it all. Health and well-being, relationships, and professional success all rely on emotional awareness. And if your own emotions are highly conflicted, or blocked, it becomes impossible to be happy or fulfilled.
An emotionally intelligent person knows an internal spiritual peace and well-being. They attune easily to the source of wisdom and love within themselves. They develop a practical spirituality that stays with them through daily life. Their emotions radiate empathy, compassion, generosity, and kindness that transcend any religious beliefs or practice. Because profound emotional intelligence leads to profound spiritual intelligence.
Without developing emotional awareness, the human spirit is in chains. And no matter how rigorously they may apply any spiritual practice, they can’t access who they really are in their heart of hearts. And who they are can’t get out. It is locked up inside their emotions. So, the world never knows how much they care, how much they love, and how much they wish the best for the people in their life.
We have all seen people who thought they were spiritually motivated but lacked wisdom, authenticity, and spiritual warmth. Because no matter what a person’s religion or belief, there is no spiritual intelligence without emotional perception and clarity.
The world is waking up to the reality of emotional intelligence and how critical it is for human psychology. Research suggests that a person’s emotional quotient—a measurement of emotional intelligence—may be more important than IQ in determining a person’s success in life. EQ has been linked to job performance, more satisfying relationships, and the ability to recover from acute stress.
Emotional intelligence is like the weather. Everybody talks about it, but no one does anything about it. Or even more relevant, no one teaches it in a way that transforms people’s lives.
For the average person, an academic concept of EQ, or the ability to test for it, doesn’t help. And traditional concepts, such as the idea that we need to “manage emotions,” don’t bring us the emotional freedom we seek. We have to go beyond the belief that we have to “manage emotions,” to an experience of emotional flow and mastery.
For that to happen, we need an understanding of EQ that maps to our own day-to-day experience. We have to find a way to see what is happening within our own feeling realm and then become masterful about what we see. We have to get eyes on our emotional experience to become emotionally intelligent in all the dimensions of our human experience.
This is what the Becoming a Sun Workshop offers. It presents a map of the human emotional experience that correlates with your actual experience. Then it explains how the elements of your experience are in dynamic relationship with each other. And finally, it lets participants work that dynamic in themselves and feel what it is like when it is working creatively.
What does this mean for participants in the Becoming a Sun Workshop? They transform emotions that have been sabotaging them into emotions that empower them. Emotions of love, empathy, and compassion that were frozen melt and flow easily out. Destructive anger turns into devoted commitment and service.
Emotional intelligence—EQ—is a doorway to higher levels of spiritual intelligence—SQ. Researchers have found the SQ is a predictor of leadership. Other research suggests that SQ has a significant influence on the quality of life for adolescents.
Bestselling author Stephen Covey said this about SQ:
Spiritual intelligence is the central and most fundamental of all the intelligences, because it becomes the source of guidance for the others.
He’s right. But the combined effect in a person’s life of EQ and SQ goes far beyond that. It unleashes powerful spiritual energies into a person’s physical body, creating vitality where there has been stress. It unlocks the mind. It brings an emanation of loving goodwill into a person’s world.
The combined effect of EQ and SQ opens a person to the source of all creativity that is possible to them in all phases of their life.
At each step along the way, the participant is unleashing another element of the spiritual power within them. They are liberating another facet of who they are.
Participants receive a comprehensive understanding of the emotional intelligence behind all aspects of human experience—from personal to professional to family and relationships. They learn the essential emotional pattern that replicates throughout it all.
The workshop goes beyond the conceptual knowledge of the principles of emotional intelligence. Through journaling, silent reflection, and a variety of exercises, the concepts become real. Participants gain emotional understanding. They find the source of their own emotional strength. And their own powerful spiritual connection grows.
My name is David Karchere, author of the bestselling book, Becoming a Sun; Emotional and Spiritual Intelligence for a Happy, Fulfilling Life. It is a book of prose and poetry that guides the reader through an experience of their victorious human journey. It is a journey to grace, the ultimate emotional intelligence, and the highest spiritual knowledge. It is the journey of Becoming a Sun—the spiritual path to becoming, on the outside, what we have always been on the inside: a being of radiant love and light. This workshop is based on the principles and experiences I write about in my book.
Oren Yakovee will be assisting me in in this workshop for the first time. Oren is an Attunement Teacher and Practitioner. He is a spiritual coach, and workshop facilitator. I am really excited to have Oren on our faculty for Becoming a Sun Workshop. I know his presence will deeply contribute to the overall experience.

You can imagine what an honor it has been to witness the joy on the face of a person I’ve never met before when they realize they have the power to set themselves free. It is one of the most fulfilling things in my life to watch a person become liberated from an unconscious block that had starved them of emotional fuel—to see them feel victorious and joyful about their life.
I know the formulas I will be teaching work. I’ve seen it happen for people again and again. I want to share my confidence in what you will experience in this workshop by guaranteeing that you will experience transformational learning when you attend the Becoming a Sun Workshop. Your experience will change you. So I make this promise: I guarantee that, if after participating in this course, you find that the formulas I’ve shared do not empower your transformational learning, I will return your fee in full. All you have to do is ask on or before the last day of the course.
