Discover the rich and expanding capabilities possible with the Emotional Body method’s holistic approach to physical emotion regulation in this 7-week course. Practitioners who have received previous instruction on the Emotional Body Method’s approach to teaching the emotional effector patterns now gain valuable personal and professional experience, as they take deep exploratory dives into its potential applications.

Participants will explore holistic applications for…

  • Emotional impulses and their potential stimuli, both internally and externally, and what choices we have concerning responses to such impulses
  • Shifting emotional states at will, and exploring mixed emotions, emotional polarities or pendulating
  • Exploring the concept of how emotions can be a consent-based practice within ourselves, as well as within our interactions with others, allowing more personal agency with emotions, and developing a practice to support these abilities
  • Vocal expressions of emotion, feelings, and the impact internally and externally of what occurs with the shared energy that sounded expressions create
  • Fully connecting the voice and body with the patterns, along with intentions, desires, and actions in the creation of more consistent, holistic expressions
  • Managing vocal and emotional health while gaining these skills in applications, learning essential information about vocal anatomy, understanding personal tolerance levels, identifying, and setting personal boundaries, and considering consent-based agency around emotional expressions
  • Centering, destressing, revitalizing, and restoring the nervous system to achieve a calm and restful state, and a quiet mind

For $600 USD the course includes:

  • 14 hours of online synchronous instruction.  A temporary recording of each class each class meeting will be provided because we know life happens, and sudden conflicts emerge.
  • 6 additional hours of recorded lessons and written resources to support private practice is also provided and becomes available as soon as you pay for your registration and remains accessible for a full year!
  • One private online 30-minute lesson with the instructor, scheduled after completing the full course of study, is also included in the course registration fee.
  • An online course platform filled with rich materials is available to all course members throughout the course including pre-course lessons to help you refresh your study and practice of the emotional effector patterns before the course begins, reinforcement lessons to assist practice in-between synchronous lessons, and to assist with sustaining ongoing practice well after the course ends. The materials include video and audio recordings, and downloadable documents describing emotional effector pattern practice recommendations, and recommended reading materials.
  • Emotional Body lessons are also supported by reading recommendations from the text The Emotional Body: A Method for Physical Self-Regulation by Laura Bond. Course registrants will receive a special promo code providing them with the opportunity to order the Emotional Body book through our website at 20% before the course begins.
