After five years of writing, and an additional year of work on illustration and layout design work, Laura Bond’s book on physical emotion regulation and the emotional effector patterns, titled The Emotional Body is finally finished!

The book project was made possible through a nonprofit arts oriented crowdfunding campaign, called Hatchfund, which helped us raise enough money to pay for all the editing, illustrations, and layout design work for the book. Now that our Hatchfund sponsors have received their limited print First Edition copy of The Emotional Body as a special “Thank You” perk for their support of the book development, we have retired the First Edition, and created a public Second Edition version of the book.

At this point, we are only making the public Second Edition book available to students in our courses and workshops, and to those who are currently studying with our instructors, or who have already studied with us and want to continue their practice of physical emotion regulation.

If you are a former or current student of one of our Emotional Body instructors and would like to order a copy of The Emotional Body book, fill out this book request form:
