Emotional Literacy Education for a Wholehearted Community






We teach educators, parents, and community organizations how to work with their nervous system, cultivating resilience, empowering personal growth, and enhancing relationships.

Our programs promote personal empowerment, foster connection, deepen ones understanding of self and others, and equip you with the essential skills to thrive and communicate effectively.

Learn to navigate the intricacies of your emotional process. At the Emotional Literacy Movement, we believe that everyone deserves to celebrate their uniqueness, access knowledge about their own biology, and cultivate compassion for the human experience.

We're dedicated to making emotional literacy education accessible to all. Our mission is to provide the tools and resources needed to support and uplift those in your care and on your team.

















As an emotionally literate society we can

Confidently engage when conflict arises and hold compassion for others with different perspectives

Thrive in our relationships and build meaningful connections

Increase productivity without compromising wellbeing

Minimize the impacts of trauma & learn to work with our triggers

Increase academic performance and retention of information.






  We set the stage for learning to occur by working with our biology to balance the nervous system, build confidence, and prevent burnout.

Embark on a transformative journey towards personal growth, enriched relationships, and a deeper understanding of your emotional world.
