King spiritual intelligence scale was used for data gathering which its validity and reliability were confirmed. This scale was fulfilled by participants three times (before study, immediately and one month after study). Eight training sessions was held for experimental group as a workshop. There wasn't any intervention for control group. Data were analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics and software SPSS15. (p=0.05)


The covariance analysis (by adjusting the effect of the base values of spiritual intelligence) showed that the main effect of intervention on the mean scores of spiritual intelligence was significant (p<0.05), so that after the study in the experimental group the mean scores of spiritual intelligence reached from  3.37 before the study to 78.50 after the study. Also, the covariance analysis revealed that the main effect of intervention on the mean scores of four dimensions of spiritual intelligence were significant (p<0.05), so that the training results in significant increase of the mean scores of them in the experimental group.
