Emotional Intelligence!

A Transformative Learning Journey
– Powered by Beyond EI

We often lack effective coping strategies that allow us to handle the demands we each face. We are not necessarily taught how to best use our mind to work with our emotions, to adopt the best possible mindset or to make decisions that bring about the outcomes we most want.  

Mindfulness can help you live a more fulfilled life!

We live in a time when more and more people find it challenging to lead a meaningful and happy life. The challenges we face have reached a dimension that we are often not able to cope with them as effectively as we would like. Many people function in their day-to-day lives, but are overwhelmed by life’s expectations and pressures. We see this in the well-documented decline in mental health and well-being of people across the globe.  

This course presents the Missing Manual for Your Mind that you did not learn in school. The insights and methods presented in this course will show you how you can bring your mind and body into alignment and harmony to master your life in a more relaxed way with renewed energy. In a fun and easily manageable step-by-step format, you will learn to navigate the ups and downs of your life, and create the life you really want.  

Whether you are new to mindfulness or have prior experience, this course will expertly guide you to embody mindfulness in your own life

Mindfulness is fundamental to developing your own emotional intelligence and will help you in all aspects of your life and work. Employing mindfulness practices helps you unlock your full potential. 

This course is for anyone who is interested in developing mindfulness as a way of life.

  • Whether you are new to mindfulness and can benefit from a practical and systematic introduction, or…
  • Perhaps you have tried mindfulness but found it difficult to practice regularly and want support to make it a habit. 
  • Maybe you already have a regular mindfulness practice and simply want to deepen and increase your understanding of it.
  • You want to develop your listening, communication, team-work, and creativity to become a better leader, or…
