Like many others, we enjoyed Zoom quizzes galore with our loved ones
during lockdown. But the problem is that most of these family competitions have been testing what we know about popular culture, sport, history and geography – which aren’t always things that really interest us. Enter the Soul & Spirit Ultimate Spiritual IQ Quiz! We’ve compiled 20 different questions to really test your knowledge across the different spiritual practices and disciplines and to find out just how deep your knowledge goes. See how many you get right, and then try it with your friends and family too. But just remember, it’s only a bit of fun, and could even introduce you to your new favourite area of spirituality.
