Exploring Emotional Intelligence + Perfectionism with Emile Steenveld

"When your spine is out of alignment our body tries to adjust and then develops blockages and pain. Exactly the same thing happens when we are out of alignment with our values. Our life develops blockages without the flow of values." —Emile Steenveld

This was a wide-ranging conversation with emotional intelligence coach Emile Steenveld—previously an Australian model and actor traveling the globe for 12 years—he now works as a coach + facilitator, focusing on the inner workings of the relationship with the self and the mind.

In this conversation we dive into:
