Your emotions – all of them – are the motivation for all of your thoughts, ideas, and actions.

Understanding your emotions and knowing how to work with them will improve every part of your life.

Dynamic Emotional Integration® can help you access the intelligence, energy, and insight in all of your emotions!

Emotions are possibly your greatest source of instincts, intelligence, and energy — yet most of us haven’t been taught how to access these gifts. For most of us, emotions can be a mystery or a problem instead of a limitless source of information, support, and lively energy.

All of your emotions are essential to your well being, and each one brings you a specific kind of intelligence to guide your thoughts and actions. DEI can teach you how to work brilliantly with every emotion you have!

Dynamic Emotional Integration® (also known as DEI) is a leading-edge approach to emotions that helps you understand and work brilliantly with every emotion you have. Anger, sadness, fear, even hatred … all seventeen of your emotions are essential for your health and well-being, and when you learn how to work with all of them, your life and your relationships can improve dramatically.

All of the principles and practices in DEI were created to help you develop keen emotional awareness, insightful relationship skills, and robust and healthy empathy.

Dynamic Emotional Integration is based on the work of award-winning author and pioneering researcher Karla McLaren, M.Ed., whose grand unified theory of emotions revalues even the most “negative” emotions and opens startling new pathways to self-awareness, effective communication, and healthy empathy. DEI also encompasses McLaren’s groundbreaking Six Essential Aspects of Empathy model, which makes all of the processes in healthy empathy easily understandable, accessible, and attainable.

DEI incorporates McLaren’s innovative Empathic Mindfulness practices that recruit the emotions themselves to support your grounding, focusing, relaxation, self-soothing, and personal growth. With the help of the Empathic Mindfulness practices, you can quickly bring yourself back to center, regain your composure and your sense of humor, and live mindfully with every emotion and every situation you encounter.

DEI courses and licensing programs are taught online at Empathy Academy.

Dynamic Emotional Integration® Trainings

DEI trainings and workshops — on emotions, empathy, elemental balance, and the Empathic Mindfulness practices — are offered by licensed DEI Trainers in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Chile.

Dynamic Emotional Integration is an empathic approach to emotions and teaching, and each licensed Trainer has their own unique approach and their own unique offerings. Each Trainer can provide educational workshops and presentations to suit the needs of your group.

Dynamic Emotional Integration® Consultations

DEI consultations are individualized sessions with licensed Consultants who can support you in an in-depth exploration of your current emotional situation. Your DEI consultation relies upon your familiarity with the work in The Language of Emotions or The Art of Empathy, and supports you in exploring your emotions and developing strong Empathic Mindfulness skills.

DEI consultations are unique; they’re not therapy or life coaching. DEI consultations help you access the immense wisdom inside your emotional realm, and they help you find your own ideas and solutions with the help of your own inborn emotional wisdom. Learn more about DEI Consultations.

Dynamic Emotional Integration consultations are offered in person, by phone, or by video conferencing with licensed DEI Consultants in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Chile.

Beyond sculptures and symphonies,

beyond great works and masterpieces,

is the greater, finer art of creating a conscious life.

Genius appears everywhere,

but never so magnificently

as in a life well lived.
