Understanding & Building Emotional Intelligence Workshop
Long term studies prove that Emotional Intelligence (aka: EQ) is far more important that Mental Intelligence (aka: IQ). Emily and I recommend to our friends and clients to only choose people to connect intimately with who have a high EQ.
So, what is EQ? How can we cultivate it within ourselves? How can we determine another person’s EQ capacity?
We will answer these questions and provide you with specific ways to build your EQ. This will be a FUN and INTERACTIVE play shop. A few examples of EQ skills are:
– The Ability to Self Reflect;
– The Ability to Listen to others;
– The Ability to Express your self clearly;
– The Ability to play fair/ be mutual;
– The Ability to Empathize;
– The Ability to be Self Responsible;
Scott and Emily have led many classes and workshops on this topic, and participants report it to be life changing!
Sun Jan 22nd, 7pm – 9pm
Evening of Authentic Express in Community
We live in a world where we and the world are putting on masks to be loved and accepted. Fore exampme, we say were “fine” when really we are angry, depressed, sad. How often we have been shamed or made wrong for our authentic feelings and expression. We learn to hold back what’s really alive in ourselves to also protect ourselves and the uncomfrotable emotions or projections of others. The time is now to END this incogurency and to be celebrated for the many aspects of expression that we are at any given moment.
Let us come together to create a SAFE LOVING container where you can be deeply witnessed and seen for what is alive in you.
This is not about performing or putting on a show. It’s about you reclaiming the truth of yout expression at any given moment and being honored, accpeted, understood, and celbrerated in community. You will have a chance with your permission, to have sacred mirrors reflect back their own inspirations or what comes up for them in relation to your sharings/expression.
This is simlar to a ZEGG FORUM, but it is Emily and Scott’s own style.

This tropical jungle earth temple is surrounded by waterfalls and situated in a very sacred part of the island that was known as the home of the owl and a place that the Hawai’ian royalty received training. We are a living eco-temple and the perfect place to reconnect with nature and the mana (healing energy) that the islands are known for. If you are needing the amenities and creature comforts of modern hotels, this is not the place for you. If you are adventurous and are willing to unplug and tune into nature than this nature temple will be paradise. You will wake up to beautiful sunrises and the sounds of nature. The 2.5 acre sanctuary is a living food forest with coconut, papaya, banana, avocado, starfruit, orange, lemon and lime trees, a garden full of organic greens and passion fruit. We also have giant bamboo, exotic tropical flowers and gardens. The temple has gorgeous Indonesian art, statues and fountains throughout. We are somewhat rustic and do not have air conditioning. We have shared bathroom facilities and a clean outdoor marble shower. In general we have good cell service especially for Verizon. We are on Satellite Internet which is not the strongest service. We recommend that you plan on unplugging and taking a retreat from the internet during your time here!
Photos of property
Maui is a tropical island in the Hawaiian chain with a fairly mild year-round climate tempered by the Pacific Ocean. We are located just above sea level the average afternoon winter temperature is around 75°F during the coldest months of December and January. August and September are the hottest summer months with temperatures in the low 90s. Due to the prevailing trade winds, most rainfall hits the north- or northeast-facing shores and it is usual for us to have showers mostly at night and in the morning. As with most volcanic tropical islands, however, many different micro climates mean packing for a variety of conditions: swim suits and light hot-weather clothing for the beaches, a lightweight windbreaker for the occasional shower at higher elevations, and more serious protection during inclement conditions when hiking Haleakala. Winter and Spring (mid-December through mid-April) is high season for Maui.
What to Bring
Most importantly bring your open heart and your open mind! As well, you are welcome to bring something to place on the altar to hold your intention and charge up! Wear comfortable yoga clothes, bring a yoga mat (there are usually plenty, yet it’s usually best to use your own), sunglasses, sandals, beach wear, walking shoes that you don’t mind getting wet and dirty if you want to venture over rivers and to waterfalls (inexpensive boat shoes are ideal), t-shirts, light, long sleeves / trousers for the evening, hat, sunscreen, earplugs and eye mask (for light sleepers), earth-friendly toiletries (we provide Dr. Bronners soap in the shower and bathroom), personal medication, reading material, journal/notebook and pens, coloring pencils, art material (optional), camera. Allow yourself this time to truly unplug and reset by taking a break from wifi and electronics. We are semi off the grid and our resources are precious. Help us to conserve them by using your towels and sheets for the duration of your stay. We are on water catchment and use rainwater for our household needs. We are also on satellite internet. Verizon cell service is excellent here. Help preserve this tropical rainforest. To avoid using sunscreen lotion and mosquito repellent, it is highly recommended to wear long-sleeved, light colored, loose fitting shirts or use a shawl/sarong, long skirts or pants. You may find some mosquitoes out around dusk and most of our guests find the Maui mosquito bites are rather mild and disappear within an hour with no need for creams and repellents.
