Learn this incredible life-changing method and all it can do for you and your profession. The course takes place over a long weekend while enjoying the highly desirable destination city of Asheville, NC!

By learning more about emotions and developing skills to sense how they emerge and express through your body, you can become more adept at self-regulating emotions, managing how you express them, and consciously shifting from undesirable emotional states to more desirable ones. Everything you encounter triggers your emotions, and then influences your health, relationships, perspective and perception of the world. Our courses are dedicated to helping people learn physical emotion regulation methods, and develop emotional fluency and emotional intelligence. Recent studies have shown that people who develop high emotional intelligence have greater success in all types of jobs, as well as increased management and personal benefits within their interpersonal relationships

Lessons in this course, and its accompanying book, provide detailed information on a remarkable physical approach to emotion regulation. The Emotional Body® method uses physical patterns discovered in scientific research, and an instructional style informed by extensive research, somatic education theory, and more than ten years of development.

Receive 20 hours of instruction on the emotional effector patterns and various somatic education methods, including Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® lessons (taught by certified practitioners) to increase somatic sensing awareness and learning. All six emotional effector patterns will be taught, as well as neutral and step out. The course is open to adults (18 years or older) from all professions and backgrounds. 

Instructors: Laura Bond (CL5 Alba and author of The Emotional Body), Lavinia Plonka (CL4 Alba certified & certified Feldenkrais® practitioner) plus additional teaching assistants.
