Andrea has blended her EnneaMotion (exploring Enneagram types through movement) and Transformation through Movement exercises into a system that calls upon training and awareness of physical intelligence to increase emotional intelligence. The process integrates thinking, feeling and actions, creating an internal sense of wholeness.

This is combined with brain science in a way that facilitates change. Why is change so difficult? There are many answers, including: we don’t want to; we’re not ready to; we don’t know what else to do; we know what else to do, but we don’t know how to do it; we keep not changing while knowing what it is we’d rather do.

And the pattern perpetuates. When change is difficult, it means a step is missing.

The Missing Step of Change

Learn exercises that translate emotional energy into physical energy, exploring the neuron pathways that manifest and express your inner states. Recognize and tame the pathways that are overdeveloped, and train and strengthen neuron pathways that capture desired change. This work mitigates change because it integrates (makes whole, connects) you–your body, your head, your heart, your spirit. This workshop will be presented as a combination of large group, dyad and individual work.
