This is the official website of Emotions Anonymous International. Emotions Anonymous (EA) exists to support
individuals with emotional difficulties in their efforts to live a more manageable life by using the Emotions Anonymous Program of recovery.
Emotions Anonymous' 7th Tradition tells us we must rely only on our membership for support of the program as a whole. Your Board of Trustees approved the 2016-2017 ISC budget at the Board meeting prior to the September 2016 Convention in Arizona. The budget year ends June 30, 2017 and is based on expected revenue from publication sales and contributions. Our individual and group contribution goal this year is $45,000. Please consider supporting EA as a whole by making a contribution today. Click here to go to the donation page on the website. Thank you!
EA retreats, programs, and meetings are designed for education, support and fun! Find out what is happening in your area or across the world.

EA groups are self-supporting and all groups and individuals financially support the International Service Center, which manages the literature and behind-the-scenes work for EA as a whole.
At the February retreat in Buffalo, Minnesota there will be an opportunity to explore your creativity. "Just Arting Around" is a local business run by an EA member that provides private painting parties. A painting party at a reduced fee will be offered during this retreat's free time. All supplies and materials are included in the fee. Sign up soon to explore your creative side! For more information, please visit www.justartingaroundmn.com or email Sid K. at email@example.com.
Did you know you can sign up to receive EA-ISC information directly to your email? We send out The Connection monthly as well as periodic information about EA via email. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be added to the email mailing list. That way if you aren't at a meeting when your group contact announces news from the ISC, you won't miss a thing!
Would you be willing to make information about your local meeting available in public places around your neighborhood? Print off the "EA Local Meeting Flyer", found on the righthand side of the page at: http://emotionsanonymous.org/get-involved/ways-to-be-of-service.html, fill in the information about your meeting in the space available, post in local coffeeshops, libraries, grocery stores - any place that has a bulletin board (and agrees to letting you put it up of course!).

Your Trustee's Reflections
During 2017, your EA Trustees will reflect on one of the Helpful Concepts here.
Helpful Concept #1: We come to EA to learn how to live a new way of life through the 12-step program of Emotions Anonymous which consists of 12 Steps, 12 Traditions, concepts, the Serenity Prayer, slogans, Just for Todays, EA literature, weekly meetings, telephone and personal contacts, and living the program one day at a time. We do not come for another person - we come to help ourselves and to share our experiences, strength, and hope with others.
I came to Emotions Anonymous bringing another person for their support and after a few meetings found it would be helpful to me. My life has changed for the better by using the whole program of Emotions Anonymous. When there was a conflict event during meeting date I would choose to go to a meeting and if possible use another date with the conflicting event. - Harold F.
Where would I be without the tools of EA as outlined in this very first Helpful Concept? If truth be told, I’d still be on the slippery slope that brought me to EA to begin with! Our EA toolbox is just packed to overflowing with prescriptions to keep me emotionally healthy, and that is why we have them to begin with. EA is a “me” program. It’s about me, not another person but I can share what I have with them. - Gus S., President, Board of Trustees
