About My Business:


Spiritual Intelligence: Barbara Scogings teaches you to identify and use simple tools WITHIN YOURSELF; to use them in overcoming everyday problems(your life lessons) thus enabling you to grow and strengthen from within. This allows you to achieve balance, freedom and happiness. Biography: Barbara Scogings grew up in Durban and graduated from Natal University in 1977 with a B.A (Hons.), majoring in English and Drama. She lectured in Drama there before moving to Wits University to study and lecture further. She returned to Durban in 1984 after being widowed and began a successful career in corporate sales. Barbara later remarried, had two daughters and divorced in 1997. She did attempt marriage again but it was short-lived, albeit full of rich lessons! Barbara's interest in the spiritual world was founded in her Anglican upbringing, which gave her a solid base from which to explore. Her first husband went on to introduce her to the greater picture of the metaphysical and esoteric and she had her first conscious "out of body" experience at 25. This encouraged her to question both her "White Anglo Saxon Protestant" upbringing and the world as a whole as she delved into a wide spectrum of spiritually related subjects and philosophies. She began to give professional spiritual counselling in 1998 and left the corporate world in 2002 in order to run a full time business from her home in KwaZulu-Natal. This grew into a successful practice seeing clients of all cultures, ages and belief systems, training being conducted in individual sessions as well as in groups and workshops. In essence she trains in spiritual mastery by developing a person’s spiritual intelligence. The word "spirit" merely implies that which is not physical and that which relates to your deepest thoughts and feelings; that which is invisible and is therefore your intrinsic and real self (not your often mistaken self-image). Spiritual intelligence does not mean an automatic connection with religion or with the “New Age” consciousness very prevalent today. Barbara relocated to Gauteng in 2005 with the aim of expanding her practice into the education and coaching of spiritual intelligence (SQ-spiritual quotient) in the business world and has a particular interest in coaching leaders. Corporations are made up of and run by human beings, but many companies are obsessed only with profit, rules, regulations, systems and procedures. The apparently ‘invisible’ aspects such as trust, integrity, cooperation and honesty are not often addressed. Human performance levels are heightened when this is attended to. The type of learning that is required for human beings to achieve an essential ‘mastery of self’ is the process of self-knowing. Mere information is external from the self, but too many companies emphasise the need to acquire ‘book knowledge’. Authentic and permanent learning is the ability to process this knowledge through self-exploration and transformation. Question: "How do we undergo self-transformation?" Answer: "Through identifying our trials and challenges in life, through understanding why we are here, and then having the courage to overcome these challenges." The resulting benefits are happy, stable, well-balanced and cooperative human beings who perform at their highest levels. Barbara wrote an in-depth course in 2009 called: “Living a Simple and Integral life; having all the parts necessary to be complete in an uncomplicated way”. Staff at a top S.A bank were trained in this course in 2010. The exploration, implementation and balance of four fundamental aspects of life – mental, emotional, spiritual and physical - is essential, as it leads to a profound self-knowledge, self-awareness, authenticity and a heightened level of consciousness. The ability to investigate ourselves honestly brings genuine wealth; that of wisdom, grace, balance, integrity, self confidence, happiness, good health and freedom from limitation.
