School of Emotions Global Gathering

Immerse yourself in the amazing world of emotions with Dan Newby. Three days to learn, reflect, and wonder in inspirational New Mexico.

What is it?

A global gathering that will focus on deepening your understanding of emotions and the ways they enrich our lives through the tool of emotional literacy. When we embrace emotions as a gift and see them as an undeniable dimension of our humanity, we begin to see all the ways they support us. We are able to befriend them and take advantage of the wisdom they offer.

Dan Newby’s approach to emotions is logical, practical, and refreshingly simple. He, along with other expert practitioners, will lead you through a transformational three days.

  • Daily navigation of life’s challenges

  • The creative arts
