Revealing the Gift of Emotions

There is no more important life skill than Emotional Literacy. Recognizing, naming, and understanding what our emotions are trying to tell us is life changing. It is a skill as important as linguistic literacy and something we can all learn. Step onto the path to emotional literacy with us.

Hi, I’m Dan Newby.

Many of my students say something similar happened for them. My passion is to help others discover the impact emotional literacy can make in their lives
