The Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB) training was sparked during a meeting between behavioral scientists, a neuroscientist, a monk, a philosopher, and the Dalai Lama in 2000, as a new approach to understanding our emotional lives. Combining contemporary emotion based scientific research with contemplative practices and psychology drawn from Buddhism, the Cultivating Emotional Balance training gives participants new tools to use emotion as a path for transformation.

Join an original format for learning and integrating the basic tools of Cultivating Emotional Balance. In this workshop, participants develop attention, restore motivation, identify the root causes of enduring happiness, explore anger and sadness, investigate different pathways of empathy, practice self-compassion, and build connections through vulnerability and trust.

Our goal is to support the participants in acquiring tools for cultivating emotional balance in daily life. Your guides are CEB teachers, Lani Potts and Dave Smith. Together, they are a dynamic duo with experience teaching the fundamental concepts of CEB.

Day 1:
– Lay the groundwork for emotional awareness
– Learn how to track emotions
– Cultivate a basis of joy in meditation and stabilize attention in the body.

Day 2:
– Investigate the roots and strategies for working with the emotions of anger and sadness
– Develop mindfulness, introspection and compassion for your mental and emotional habits.

Day 3:
– Explore your internal longing for contentment and flourishing,
– Reflect on on genuine well-being and a meaningful life
– Meditations that establish the clarity of intention and commitment to you and others well-being.

Each day focuses on learning and practice:
9am-12pm PDT Emotion Awareness Workshop:
– Includes powerpoint instruction, small group breakouts, activities, and interactive discussion

2pm-5pm PDT Contemplative Practice and Meditation:
– Includes guided practice and instruction on contemplative themes.
– These sessions will be recorded
**Can be watched the next morning for those in later time zones.
