Transform challenges and breakdowns into breakthroughs.

Lower your overall level of emotional reactivity and increase your resilience, happiness, and well-being.

Our mission

…is to promote integral emotional intelligence.

This approach to personal development encompasses all four domains of human expression and how they interact: mind, body, emotions, and spirit or consciousness. The principles of this holistic, integrated approach illuminate how to live a more authentic life and master the art of everyday transformation.

We envision a world in which having a holistic understanding of how to be emotionally intelligent is commonplace.

Our goal is to enable individuals to empower themselves to develop an unshakeable sense of their inner being and operate more fully from their authentic self.

New Book on Developing Emotional Intelligence

Integral Emotional Intelligence FINAL Volume I

Gain self-mastery, live from your most authentic self, and cause transformation.

This book is an introduction to the foundational concepts and practices of being emotionally intelligence in a holistic way. It contains the keys to radical self-empowerment, enabling you to embody and live life from your personal highest ground and shift from dysfunctional, unsatisfying dynamics to more positive, functional, and fulfilling ones.

“This book is not about fixing or repairing what’s broken. It is about helping already fully functioning and healthy human beings learn to embody their authentic self and gain access to previously unthinkable levels of love, joy, fulfillment, and satisfaction.”

—Neal Rogin, author of Delightenment

Challenges in life tend to fall into one or more of three categories: opportunities for learning and growth, opportunities for training and empowerment, or opportunities for building character.
Often, they are all three.
