Do you find emotional change difficult? If you’re like most of us, the answer is “yes!”As much as we may want to make emotional change, even once we know what that change might be, implementing it can still be a challenge. I believe when change is difficult, a step is missing. The Missing Step is often working with the body.

Emotional habits have strong and well-developed neural pathways (the information system connecting the brain and the body) for their expression. This is true with both helpful habits like confidence and patience, and less helpful habits like anger and shyness.When change is difficult, it usually means there is not a pathway for an alternative expression. The Missing Step uses movement to train new neuron pathways.

Integrate the understanding of your personality style with the Missing Step to increase your emotional intelligence. These techniques are relevant in both your personal and professional life. In addition to individual and group activities, several people from the audience will have one-on-one opportunities to work with Andrea on an emotional habit they’d like to change.

Andrea Isaacs combines the Enneagram with movement and brain science. Her system is based on how emotional habits are formed and offers a tool for breaking free of ineffective habits. She teaches people how to listen to their physical intelligence in a way that can increase emotional intelligence. In addition to being a faculty member for the Riso-Hudson Professional Training Program and a frequent guest teacher for Ginger Lapid-Bogda’s Train-the-Trainers Program, she teaches an EPI (Emotional and Physical Intelligence) Certification and Train-the-Trainers Program, conducts workshops and sees private clients internationally.
