“Our Emotional Matrix: An East Meets West Approach to Emotional Intelligence”


Jodi M. Filleman, M.Ed., LPC, RYT
Friday, June 10, 2016
11:30 AM – 1:00 PM






What are our emotions? How did they come to be? The primary education of our mother, caregivers and environment early in life shaped us and created the foundation for our emotional patterning. Come and learn principles on how the family unit impacts our emotional development and our neurology. Learn simple, effective mindfulness tools and practices to begin moving beyond these early imprints and increase our emotional intelligence.

Jodi is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Mindfulness and Meditation Teacher, and Apprentice Trainer for Conscious Transformation. She loves incorporating mindfulness and neuroscience into her skills training classes. She has over 15 years of professional education experience. In that time, she has served numerous hours as a childbirth educator, prenatal yoga instructor and doula. It is her passion and purpose to support individuals, couples, and families know vibrant and meaningful lives.

Learning objectives:

1.Increase understanding of the role the family unit plays in our emotional development.

2. Increase our awareness of emotional intelligence, its role in our lives and its impact on others in our world.

3. Learn at least one simple, effective practice to regulate, balance and improve our emotional intelligence (appropriate for both you and your clients).
