is pleased to sponsor two Alba Method workshops, A Full Session (10 hours) and An Introductory Session (2 hours), by Master Teacher Elizabeth Townsend

Alba Method/Alba Emoting is a scientific technique originally developed for actors as a means of accessing organic emotion.

Alba Emoting was developed by neuroscientist and psychologist Professor Susana Bloch as a safe, purely physical technique to release and maintain emotional states.

Alba identifies six “emotions” from which all other emotions are derived: Joy, Fear, Sadness, Tenderness, Anger, and Erotic Love.

Each of these basic emotions, as well as emotional neutrality, has its own unique, identifiable set of bodily responses which are universal to all humans. By reproducing three aspects of these patterns — breathing, posture, and facial expression — anyone can experience and express genuine emotion at will without the use of memory or images.

Most important, using the seventh pattern called “Step-Out,” one can leave any emotion just as easily and return to psychophysical neutrality.
Alba Method has proven to be a highly effective means for identifying one’s own emotional state as well as that of others.

It is extremely helpful for developing coping skills to respond to stress in a healthy and productive way.

Alba Method has also proven to be useful in all areas of a person’s life to enhance an overall emotional well-being.
