Equilibrium Dynamics did a 3-part Emotional Intelligence series for our organization this summer. The trainers were engaging and offered relatable content for my staff that challenged their emotional maturity. We also got a chance to dive deeper on professional and personal experiences that we had never shared before. That's the type of space and environment EDQ creates. Our self-care is now at the forefront of every staff meeting now. We are even planning a staff retreat this Fall. Thanks to EQD, we now have polished emotional capacity and skills to help serve our youth.
I volunteered to help Equilibrium Dynamics do some long term planning. They are great team to work with and were very open to feedback and made me and my input feel very valued. They are doing great work.
This organization does amazing work! The information they share is life changing.
I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Flowers for many years. She is a masterful teacher, breaking down the most complex topics in emotional intelligence and making them accessible to all. She uses her humor, insight and great wisdom to work with students and to inspire hope. With Equilibrium Dynamics, she has harvested the experience of her impressive career, and developed a program to teach others her skills. The 6 month training program is superb. I can't recommend her programs highly enough. Equilibrium Dynamics is truly inspirational.
Dr. Flowers and the EQD curriculum has helped me both professionally and personally develop life long skills in emotional competence. Our current educational systems seem at a loss for teaching students emotions....EQD fills in the gaps. It helps students develop a way to name, sort, explore, reflect and implement emotions into our decisions. The approach skillfully teaches how to use our emotions to help ourselves be our best selves in the world and help others do the same. I highly recommend!
Dr. Flowers is an inspiration. She is a wonderful speaker, teacher, motivator and mentor. The EDQ team is a group of intelligent, open-minded, warm and compassionate individuals, with big hearts ready to help empower others.
Dr. Loma Flowers is a powerhouse. She is truly inspirational as a teacher and mentor. I heard her speak in a lecture on dreams more than 20 years ago. I knew I had to work with her. Over the years of our professional collaboration, I have watched her change many lives through her approach to emotional empowerment, which is straightforward and easily accessible. In order to reach a broader audience, she created her nonprofit, Equilibrium Dynamics. Through this organization, she teaches her curriculum to others. I participated in the 6 month training and found it very valuable both personally and professionally. Equilibrium Dynamics is truly a gem!
I began volunteering for EQD more than five years ago because I was impressed by its mission and by Dr. Flowers. My continued interaction with both the organization and Dr. Flowers have helped me enormously in both my professional and personal lives. Through my association, I have realized that my own emotional experiences of the world have been greatly muted but I am learning to re-allow emotion into my life and learning to manage the wide spectrum of emotions so that I am fully human in every moment. It is sometimes difficult work but the effort is completely worthwhile. I often speak of my volunteer efforts with EQD because I feel so strongly that others will also benefit from exposure to and use of EQD principles.
I cont. to grow from the exposure to the EQD curriculum. The last few months have added a lot to my effectiveness in my job setting using EQD as a way of structuring a pilot program to improve our relationship to law enforcement, for example.
I have had occassion to use it as well to work on changes to increase my healthy habits and decrease habits that undermine my health, using the support of personal relationships and the self responsibility portion of the curriculum. The applications of this curriculum are endless.
I have volunteered with EQD as well as donated to the organization. I have been so moved by the mission of teaching emotional competence that I have begun to train as a coach and apply the skill to various settings, including my own profession as a psychiatrist. We have used the skills in teaching MDs how to find balance and care for themselves, as well as teens in an at risk HS who are making decisions every day that shape their future, often driven by impulses and emotions they don't acknowledge or understand.
During our first experience with Dr. Flowers in our training, I was daunted by how much I was not comfortable with after reading her manual. The concepts were easy to understand but the idea of executing them with your own clients took more skills, practice and awesome guidance with Dr. Flowers and her team. The group who I trained with were exceptional professionals in the field and gaining experience with me. Because I was able to open up with my struggles with my own clients, the training was much more useful, and I was able to really gain insight as to how others were using it. I used Equilibrium Dynamics in the field of nutrition and nutrition counseling. At first, I was weary of how I can integrate the two along with pre-existing counseling methods but at the end of the program, I was more confident that I can do it, and I can use this skill to increase my abilities to help my clients with overweight, portion control, eating healthier, etc... I have also found myself to use the skills more in my own life where it now an every day thing. To be conscious of certain things in life. It has definitely changed the way I have view facebook. :)
