Emotional culture/regulation has been a center of discussions for a long time, as uncontrolled emotion may risk a person with psychosomatic ailments. In this concern, self-help techniques are in the search, which can assist in training negative emotions and achieve positive health. Study of scriptures on Indian dance classical suggests, repeated practice of ānġika (expression by physical movements), vācikā (expression, by words), and sāttvikā (expression, by intense feelings) with lyrics set to particular rāga can be a counter-measure for subjugating undesirable emotions. It may work as 'disguise bring changes in human beings,' reducing negative emotions and filling new sights. In this article, emotional brain training mediated by elements of Indian classical dance/abhinaya (expression) imbibed 'rasa' discussed as a possible emotion culture therapy procedure.
