Ease, Peace and Joy No Matter What

[NO RECORDING] One thing that I know for sure is that if you don't like how you're feeling (angry, sad, resentful, invisible, grieving, envious, anxious, etc.), it doesn't have to be that way. The challenge is, it's not always easy to change how we feel, so we may hold it in and then blurt, not say anything and resentment [...]

EnneaMotion is an experiential approach that helps us embody the strengths of all personality styles. It repatterns the brain and creates new neural pathways throughout the body.

The Magic Quarter Second – Emotional Intelligence, the Enneagram and Transformation

[NO RECORDING] There is a quarter of a second between the time your brain has an impulse to do something, and the moment you do it.

Integrative Change

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 [...]

Emotional and Physical Intelligence and the Enneagram

This program uses an experiential approach to explore the relationship between personality and the body. Personality--including inner thoughts, feelings, and motivations--will be translated into simple movement concepts of space, time, and energy. Neuron pathways are the channels through which information travels between the brain and the muscles, nerves, and tendons of the body. The thinking and feeling patterns that [...]

Cancer Odyssey: Using the Enneagram, Physical Intelligence, and Creativity on the Cancer Journey

[NO RECORDING] A cancer diagnosis temporarily stops you in your tracks and brings on a range of emotions. "Repression of expression" can be damaging to our psyche and our physical and emotional well-being. It can prevent us from moving on with our lives.
