Why Emotional Intelligence?

The capacity and possibility of recognizing and exploring your own emotions is a fundamental way to having emotional intelligence. A natural harmony and balance with our emotions can keep us flexible and oriented towards growth. This can lead to improved relationships and life satisfaction. When emotional intelligence is present, we discern how others respond to us and in turn respond with less stress, which leads to less reacting from triggers and beliefs. This course explores how to advance the many levels of emotional intelligence.

For the past 15 years, Erickson Coaching International has successfully taught Expanding Emotional Intelligence (previously known as Freedom to Love) worldwide. The course has been recently updated to incorporate the latest findings within Emotional Intelligence science.

This Level is designed to broaden your existing skills further and enter into the realm of forgiveness and how to face challenges and stress. You will explore specific states, recognizing various state changes and being guided through a practice that helps connect to forgiveness. Finally, you move through a format assisting you to dissolve and separate from an enmeshment with another person, finding real connection and inner balance.
