Andrea Isaacs will talk about Increasing Emotional Intelligence with Mudras and Mantras for the Nine Types. Living a conscious life requires emotional flexibility so we can to respond to life in whatever way best serves the moment. This could mean responding like a Two, Four, Six or Eight, etc., rather than with the habitual response of one’s type. The EnneaMotion Mudras and Mantras (M&Ms) repattern the brain and the neural pathways throughout the body giving us the ease and flexibility to do that. In addition, applying EnneaMotion to our fixations or other disturbing issues can guide us to an alternative response that can be used as an antidote, allowing us to respond to life’s changing demands with wholeness, greater peace and joy. Andrea will demonstrate the M&Ms and how to create an antidote.

Andrea Isaacs created EnneaMotion by combining her background in modern dance (where she translated emotional energy into physical energy), with Taoist practice and the Enneagram. Since 1994, she’s been traveling the world teaching EnneaMotion workshops, coaching individuals in designing their own physical antidotes, and conducting her training program. She’s been on the faculty of the Riso-Hudson Part II Training Program since it launched in 1995, was co-founding editor/publisher of the Enneagram Monthly and was a board member of the IEA for six years.
