Scenes from 2016

…seeing our whole EQ Certification group in Shanghai spontaneously start dancing together, filled with hope and joy. Emotions are the universal human language.

… collaborating & connecting with individuals and organizations who care so passionately and work hard for the emotional well-being of children around the world.

… #grateful for amazing work Preferred Partners are doing… eg inspired to see first certification using your customized version of our EQ assessment.

… incredible diversity of participants… cultural, spiritual, political, sexual orientation, age, etc… total acceptance, respect, empathy & LOVE for all people.

How would it feel to live in an emotionally intelligent world?

Here’s what members of the Emotional Intelligence Network said… larger words are more frequent

Our shared work is co-creating a world where people feel whole. Connected. Powerful. Clear. Where people accept sorrow and fear as valuable teachers, and have the skills to transform challenge into learning.

Six Seconds’ practitioners are united by powerful methods grounded in current science…  we are global… and we take a simple, practical approach to unlock the wisdom that’s in all people. There’s so much that divides and distracts us, but emotions are the universal human language, a force that keeps us focused on what’s MOST important, and, with a little training, can help us build a future worthy of our children.
