Thrive Living Pack!

Jumpstart Your Emotional Intelligence

Congratulations on taking a step towards living your life at a higher level!

On this page you will find some great resources to help you live a richer and more fulfilling life.

There is mounting evidence to suggest that Emotional Intelligence plays a major role in our level of success, harmonious relationships, health and happiness. When the heart and mind function in synchronization we feel at peace, perform at our peak, relate to others in a meaningful way and experience better health and well being.

After 25 years of conducting Emotional Intelligence workshops and over 10,000 sessions I am absolutely convinced that not mastering our emotions leads to much of our struggles in life: anxiety, stress, depression, addiction, overwhelm, relationship conflict, overeating, weight issues…

Heart to Heart Presentation

My landmark audio presentation so you can immediately make sense of why you are feeling the way you are and what to do now.

This is a map of how to journey from your head to your heart, from thinking and feeling, from disconnection to connection. This journey home has four parts to it. We start off in the head because that’s where most of us live. Then I talk about how to get out of your head. The best way to get out of your head is to get into your body. When you come into your body, what you find is that there are emotions there. When you stay with your emotions and you journey through your emotions then you find you connect in your heart. We’re going to talk about the difference between thinking and feeling and the difference between emotions and the heart qualities…

20 minute Heart Centering Meditation

HeartCentringCD28KBDeep within is an infinite, unchanging well of peace, happiness, love and contentment.

To access this life sustaining essence we need to tune in and connect a pipeline inside, to our heart, where such nourishment abides.

Scientific research is now showing that we function at our peak physically, mentally and emotionally, when we are centred in our hearts. For example:

  •          we think and comprehend more clearly
  •          we remember things better
  •          our immune system functions optimally
  •          we relate to others more harmoniously
  •          we have more energy, get less tired and we sleep more deeply
  •          we get less frustrated, more patient and our days flow more smoothly
  •          perform at our peak physically
