EIOS HACKATHOn | June to September |
18:00 - 21:00

1 journey. 8 weeks. 8 modules. 8 coaches. 1 quest: become a #WellbeingChampion. 1 mission: #MakeWellbeingGoViral.

The eiOS Hackathon – SHFT Happens’ Emotional Intelligence Program, is now in full swing. But it’s not too late to join. Take a look at our program dates below and come on over.  

Over these 8 intensive weeks, 8 wellbeing practitioners are your partners and guides on your journey to wellbeing. Connect with your ultimate purpose and ignite your passion to achieve the ultimate vision of your life, career, wellbeing and relationships. 


Week 1: Clean Up Week

Have you ever been hurt in your life? Do you sometimes feel like your whole body is crying? Do you know how to overcome fear, doubt, and discouragement?

In this module we will share a technique that will help you learn to uncover the source of unexplainable pains, sensations and emotions (psychosomatic illnesses). This will be the first step to set you forth on the path of effective handling for these conditions.

Week 2: Discovery Week

Are you often feeling exhausted? Do you sometimes lack the energy to even last the day? The answer may be, literally, in your heart. 

Believe it or not, your heart is not just a pump; it is directly relevant to business performance and results. We now have empirical evidence that demonstrates the connection between Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and performance. A 24-hour HRV assessment can reveal how much energy your have and whether your energy is being used efficiently or being drained. In this module, we’ll learn how to recognize subtle stress signals before they become chronic; powerful techniques to boost performance, resilience and quality of life; as well as how to be less reactive and maintain clarity under pressure.

Week 3: Preparation Week

Fulfillment is a right and not a privilege, and nothing gives a person inner fulfillment and peace like a distinct understanding of where they are going. Finding fulfillment in life starts with understanding exactly WHY we do what we do. More than ever, people are wanting more out of work than money. We want more meaning and more purpose. We want to be able to see how our contribution to the workplace or to the world makes a difference.


Get to the bottom of the big questions everyone asks themselves: Why am I here? What am I here to do? In this module we reveal six powerful exercises to help you discover and live your purpose.

Week 4: Competence Week

– “I’m not somebody who follows through.”
– “I’m not worth it.”
– “I’m not good enough.”
– “I can never finish anything.”
– “I’m not an expert. Why would anybody listen to/buy from/hire me?”
– “Nobody cares what I have to say.”
– “I’m not perfect.”

You know them! All the voices that go through your mind. They seem harmless at first…. They are just thoughts. Why would they matter? Right?


These negative voices are toxic and are poisoning your potential for success and wellbeing. You develop many of these self-defeating “voices” during childhood. Perhaps you grew up always feeling like an outsider. Or maybe you had a parent who was critical. Those types of experiences could lead you to adopt self-sabotaging behaviors and beliefs later in life. Those types of conclusions will cause you to subconsciously seek evidence that supports your beliefs. Every time you fail a test, or get rejected by someone, your negative beliefs will get reinforced. But luckily there is a way to overcome them. And that’s what the eiOS Hackathon Module, on 15 August 2018 is all about! Defying limiting beliefs.

Week 5: Embodiment Week

Nonverbal Communication – body language, eye contact, expressions, and gestures: nonverbal cues are very important in communication. While it may seem that words are the most effective way to get a point across, it is actually the way we hold our bodies and the facial expressions that we use that determine how our messages are received by others.

In this Module, you will learn how to “speed-read” people and your own emotions. You will decode sentiments and behaviors, identify deceptive behaviors and mitigate hidden pitfalls and blindspots.

You’ll also learn how your body language can influence not only how your managers, lovers, friends, and strangers perceive you; you will learn how your body language influences your Emotions. Part of being emotionally Intelligent is being able to understand, read, and manage your own body and the emotions it produces or holds on to.

You will discover:

– The ancient survival instincts that drive body language. 
– Why the face is the least likely place to gauge a person’s true feelings. 
– The most powerful behaviors that reveal our confidence and true sentiments
– Simple nonverbals that instantly establish trust
– Simple nonverbals that instantly communicate authority

This Module offers a powerful new way to navigate your world as a captain of your own body.

Week 6: Discipline Week

By now you know what you want, you feel empowered and energized to put it all into practice; you have the tools, the know-how, the enthusiasm and the energy to turn your life around. How do you sustain this state?

This module will help you achieve and sustain clarity about what is important to you and a deeper understanding of the world around you. We will help you clear away the trivia and needless worries about unimportant things, nurture passion for your work and compassion for others, and develop the ability to empower the people in your around you.

Week 7: Wisdom Week

Have you been to more personal development workshops than you can count? Are you making measurable progress? 

The eiOS is not only unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, it offers you measurable oversight of your progress. This module is a cutting edge assessment (used in forensics). Here we will measure your Emotional Intelligence (EQ), and identify your potential for emotional health, and psychological wellbeing, making sure that you don’t only FEEL better, but also see measurable effects. 

Week 8: Integration Week

On our final day together, we will lock in our new purpose and empowerment. 

How is SHFT Happens


We are not a traditional training school. SHFT Happens is a colearning platform. Colearning is a new concept. In colearning, coworking & coliving spaces are leveraged as communication tools.

Mind, Body & Spirit

Our immersions revolve around the interface between Work, Mind, Body & Spirit. We don't believe that emotions can be learned - only experienced. We'll take you on a journey to where you've never been before, through realms such as HeartCoherence, Generative Work and trance.


We don't differentiate between CEOs, students, or unemployed! We care about who you are, not what you do. By breaking down the boundaries between titles, we allow for natural tribes to emerge. Students meet their future internships, startups meet their helping hands and brands meet their customers, in a organic way.


Preparing the world for the future of work and striving for ZERO burnout for all.


Together with a network of 20+ mentors, coaches, psychologists and experts in fields of human behavior, emotions, motivation and personality we are hacking, rewiring and upgrading the emotions of savvy creatives, high performers and their teams around the world. From entrepreneurs to Fortune 500 enterprises.



We design programs, create immersions and craft campaigns that contribute not only to your financial success but also to the betterment of human condition.
