Margaret Hild, Actor/Director/Spoken Voice Coach (Toronto Training, 2018)
Laura Bond offered a good-humored and enthusiastic exploration of the Emotional Effector Patterns which, at first glance felt intimidating and complex. With expert ease, she managed to break down the learning process into easy-to-digest portions and had confident, detailed, patient answers at the ready as our curiosity grew with each new step. Speaking neither down to us nor over our heads, Laura matter-of-factly gave us the tools, information, and support we needed to do and explore the work. From providing a safe emotional space to neuro-scientific explanations and everything in-between, she had it all. I will be eagerly awaiting the next workshop in my area to deepen my understanding of this brilliant and under-utilized emotional method. If you’re working in any field that requires emotional labor or emotional management, you should attend this workshop and read Laura Bond’s book, Emotional Body.
