When smart people get stuck, they turn to Amanda Blake to help them tap their next level of intelligence.
As a Master Somatic Leadership Coach, Mandy has devoted her life to the spread of one simple message: when you learn to access the smarts hidden in sensation, you open the door to more courage, connection, and contribution than you ever imagined possible.
She has been praised for her ability to facilitate pragmatic, profound changes for clients from Sydney to San Francisco to South Africa. She holds a degree in Human Biology from Stanford University, and has taught leadership programs for the likes of Nike, NASA, and beyond.
But really, she’s here to show you how you can become your best self, build a better world, and have a blast along the way.
When she’s not teaching people practical ways to leverage the links between body, brain, and behavior, you can find her swing dancing with her sweetie to corny country songs, backcountry skiing in the Sierras, or learning cool ninja tricks from her nephews.
Her flagship online course, the Body = Brain Virtual Salon, begins again in spring of 2016. Discover how you can embody your brilliance at embright.org.
Right now there’s an explosion of research about the brain and body. But our knowledge of this vast field - not to mention our ability to put it to use - is scant at best.
Take practical steps towards better living, stronger leadership, and more effective coaching by turning new research into applied practice. We’ll explore the neurobiology of your gut feelings and learn practical strategies to cultivate intuition in service of your own life and the lives of your clients. Come learn how to build intuitive capabilities that are as reliable and trustworthy as your intellect.
- Explore how & why body, brain, and behavior are inextricably linked.
- Learn practical tools to cultivate intuition... and why it’s so important to do so.
- Discover why intuition sometimes leads you astray... and what to do about it.
- Enhance your work with clients by tapping your own intuition and helping them tap theirs.

Dr. Emeran Mayer at UCLA has called the gut “an extension of the limbic system.” In other words, your gut is part of your emotional brain. Do you agree? Why or why not?
How many years have you spent honing your intellectual intelligence? By comparison, how many years have you spent honing your intuition?
“You should always trust your gut.” Agree or disagree? Have you ever felt misled by your intuition?
All humans go through a development process that enables them to adapt to their environment. This is a biologically-based developmental process; it’s not an intellectual exercise. And this experiential process is how we come to acquire all of our strengths, weaknesses, and ways of being in the world.
Through this biologically-based learning process, certain qualities and behavioral tendencies get wired into our bodies and brains. This session walks you through the art and science of undoing old, unhelpful patterns and harnessing the biological learning process to create new, more resourceful approaches to life and leadership challenges. When you understand the basis for psychobiological learning - and most importantly, how to apply it - you gain the key to successfully unlocking lasting tranformative change in your clients.

Key Learning Takeaways
Discover why experiential learning is a non-negotiable aspect of any kind of behavior change.
Learn how to apply the six elements of neuroplasticity to help your clients change their brains.
Understand why clients sometimes get stuck... and what to do to help them get unstuck.
Do your clients ever get stuck when they are trying to implement a change? What do you do to help them get unstuck?
Interrupting old, unhelpful habits is one of the hidden keys to successful adult learning. How do you help your clients undo old patterns?
There is a difference between transformational change - in which old unhelpful habits are replaced by new habits and no longer recur, and incremental change - in which unhelpful habits need ongoing effort and mangement. What’s your biggest obstacle to facilitating transformational change?
