A place to belong, share, and explore your life in a thoughtful and supportive way.

The IQ Sophia International Community

is based upon a holistic integrated practice of shared knowledge, experience and spiritual awareness and guided by the wisdom principle. Sophia comprises members from around the world who genuinely wish to create a meaningful life. It uses an online forum via a private Facebook platform with access to the IQ website Resource Library. 

Sophia members challenge each other to think about making changes in our lives and to enrich our understanding of what it is to live a fully human spiritual life. We understand that this will be done with respect, humour and honesty for, in the unity of community, we have an opportunity to heal self and thereby move human consciousness in the direction of peace.

If you’re looking for a way to belong, share, and explore your life in a thoughtful and supportive way, Sophia offers a vibrant and dedicated online community. However, Sophia is not a training ground for eager mediums, a how-to for teachers, or a platform for personal or professional gain.

Being part of the Sophia Community plays a very important role in my daily life. Here they encourage us to reflect, change habits, face challenges but also smile. I really love to share with likeminded people without being judged, supporting each other, feeling safe. Gathering as a Community is so helpful for me to feel less isolated, giving me a strong sense of belonging, and contributing to create a better World.
