Equilibrium Dynamics (EQD) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching adults and children how to build a life in which feelings empower, rather than sabotage relationships, activities and careers. Everbody has feelings. But not everybody is familiar with the fundamental principles and basic dynamics of those feelings. We teach key aspects of feelings as well as the related skills and strategies for managing them.  These topics are commonly known as emotional intelligence (EQ), emotional competence or Social Emotional Learning (SEL).  Research indicates that these skills and strategies empower students for success whenever they are applied. Goals: - Empower individuals to reach highest realistic goals in academic achievements, occupations, and healthy living in functional families. - Increase public awareness and practice of emotional competence skills to create thriving institutions and safe neighborhoods with community participation for the common good. - Partner with others for maximum impact and efficiency, putting emotional competence into practice. - Contribute to the knowledge and experience in this field and our own effectiveness through ongoing evaluation of our programs. 


The EQD curriculum for teaching emotional intelligence has been proven success rating. 91% of those who have taken a course found it valuable. 92% learned something they can use. 89% learned something to help them meet their professional and personal responsibilities.

Dr. Flowers did an amazing job in sharing the ideals of the program during our trainings and how to influence students and individuals I work with in higher education. The lessons of Equilibrium Dynamics provided very valuable skills that I share with students I work with and even professionals in the field. Definitely a useful tool for a variety of fields.

Equilibrium Dynamics provided me with a number of tools and resources to better assist my students as an educator. I really appreciated the services provided to better understand the importance and role of feeling management and understanding the differences that make each individual unique and different. As an educator, it was definitely a tool that I have recommended to other colleagues looking to better serve their students as well as themselves.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how I approach my students and the organizations I advise.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have more time spent on dream analysis with outside participants.

Loma did a private workshop for our playgroup, and there were so many bits of wisdom I went away with, as well as wanting to dig in more deeply. My husband and I had a lot to talk about regarding raising our son and our marriage. The biggest impact the workshop had on me was remembering that I'm raising my child to be an adult, so depending on the adult I'm hoping he'll be, I should gear opportunities and lessons towards that goal. (She also was honest about us having lots of wiggle room to not be perfect, but be honest with our kids!).
