What is Emotional Resilience Training?

Emotional Resilience Training (ERT™) is the ultimate form of mastery over self and your nervous system. With ERT, you gain awareness and can control how you react to emotionally charged, stressful, or triggering situations. 

Without ERT, you stay an unconscious prisoner to how your brain and body have learned to seek safety—usually by sabotaging relationships, looping unhealthy patterns, or using coping mechanisms or addictions to protect yourself. 

By mastering the self, you get to command how you behave in any encounter to actualize your dreams fearlessly.

When you master your nervous system you master your life.

Why is ERT important?

Our brains form an emotional bias in ⅓ of a second—even before we feel a sensation.

People have hundreds of nonconscious rapid emotional biases from past pain or trauma. Our brains link certain situations as threats to our physical or emotional wellbeing. These might be “big T” trauma events which are deeply disturbing, such as abuse. Or they may be “little T” traumas, which are smaller scale events that we experienced as distressing.

When your brain identifies a threat, your body will immediately shift into an emotionally reactive survival state. Maybe you faced a terrifying incident at 6 years old. You’re no longer in danger, but your adult body still reacts to similar situations at an unconscious level. In activated states, we lose compassion for ourselves and others—as well as logic. Our brains and bodies will attempt to gain safety through a number of trauma signs.

Develop awareness and self-compassion to navigate triggering or painful situations without draining your time, energy, or happiness


ERT are frameworks and tools that arm you with the awareness to take control of your nervous system. Without awareness, our brain and body automatically shift us into emotionally reactive states. This can happen during triggering events or if we feel affected by another person’s activated state. With awareness, we can identify indicators (ERT trauma signs) that tell us when we are in a highly emotionally reactive state.

Using ERT the tool-set, we can move ourselves into calm, responsive states and confidently respond to trying situations. With time and practice, we can also begin to help co-regulate other people’s activated nervous systems. Once we Master The ERT frameworks & tools you are able to master your nervous system which allows you Master Your Life. 

Develop Self Mastery

Painful past experiences often hijack our present freedom. Self-mastery helps us choose how we react to life’s most emotionally triggering situations. By mastering the self with ERT, we build integrity, confidence, and power because we align our internal thoughts and external actions.

Increase Emotional Capacity

Emotional capacity is the ability to handle more emotional load in our lives. Are typically able to handle more emotional load because they are good at achieving however, they lack presence if they have low emotional capacity in the different areas of their lives. People spend their lives ruminating over anger, shame, sadness, stress and other emotions. When we loop these reactive states, we continue to empty our emotional capacity “tank” and trigger easily. By increasing our emotional capacity through ERT frameworks & tool-set, we start to become more present in everything we do, we start to enjoy the things that used to cause us stress & feel more in control & more fulfilled because we can discern how to react and start fully enjoying life.


High-achievers endure heavy emotional loads. Yet, with low emotional capacity, we will lack presence and trigger easily. Our relationships suffer as we ruminate over negative emotions and continuously empty our emotional capacity tank. By upgrading our emotional capacity through ERT, we gain control of our reactions and start fully enjoying life.

Heal Relationships & Experience Love

To find lasting fulfillment in our relationships, we must work through old emotional wounds. Without healing, we close our hearts to the right people and open them to the wrong ones. ERT teaches us to set & enforce boundaries, embrace healthy connections, and experience deeper love and happiness.
