WHAT IS THE EQ GYM
You’ve heard about gyms for your body, but what about for your mind? The EQ GYM is a mental training gym that will help expand your mind's consciousness, understand emotions and release stored anger, fear, sadness, and stress. In the process, you will develop empathy, compassion, creativity, gratitude, appreciation, lust, motivation and harmony.

WHY LIVE MEDITATION CLASSES?
Sarah Snavely, Composer / Musician
The EQ GYM facilitates a space that altered my entire existence. I. MEAN. IT. And of course, COMMUNITY. The collective feeling in the room we create together is magical, otherworldly, and so so so so healing... a feeling that I belong.
Aida Chehrehgosha, Artist
Getting to experience April Wickström as a person and leader in the Master Classes has been the most amazing thing that happened to me as an individual, mother, partner and professional woman. Everything I learned, I was able to apply in my various roles and, as a result, has grown enormously in them. I wonder if April Wickström knows what huge tsunami waves she started. Wishing everyone to experience this inner journey and personal development.
Anso Lundin, Artist / Composer
For me, The EQ GYM is a mix of concrete research, knowledge building and spiritual deep diving. It's such a stress relief to let go. To get to know myself deeply, to begin to accept myself and, in turn, everything around me. I have found peace and security. Almost got rid of my fear of dying, which was very strong and tangible the first time we met.
Ellie Elmondt, Entrepreneur
April’s presence combined with her incredible knowledge created magic in the room. She leads at the same time as she is extremely responsive and creates cohesion and security in the group. She understood exactly what the group needed at every opportunity which made me dare to give in and trust the process.
Andrea Björk, Assortment Manager
I am so grateful to April, all the other participants and myself for staying, exploring and coming through on the other side.
Nasrin Iranfar, Lawyer
I cried a lot. It was so strong and diffuse that I can't even remember what made me cry exactly. Maybe it was feeling safe among people I didn't know well. For me, it is important to convey to skeptics that it's not abstract and fuzzy in any sense, the contact with oneself is what creates security and tranquility.
Sandra Andreis, Actress
All of a sudden you find yourself to start tapping in the dark with a dozen others and it feels completely safe. The personal development and community is difficult to describe other than simply magical!
CJ Salvador, Dancer & Artist
This blew my mind away, literally. Amazed!
Cissi Efraimsson, Musician & Artist
April has an incredible amount of knowledge and is a fantastic leader. During the course I have gained so many “wow”-insights on how I work and learned to manage my emotions better. It was great fun doing it in a group! Sharing and developing together with others created a strong community for me.
