Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB) is an educational training committed to utilizing the experience of emotion as a path for developing the happiness of being for ourselves and in relationship to others. You can watch a 4 minute video clip on "Emotion as Process" by Dr. Eve Ekman to get a taste of the material.
By integrating the wisdom traditions of modern psychology, current emotion research, and contemplative practices, CEB provides a secular platform for transformation. Given the rising number of individuals working in high stress occupations, CEB is especially relevant. It provides a number of different, practical emotional skills which lead to a better understanding of our emotional life and support an increase in constructive emotional episodes.
The contemplative practices of CEB emphasize the cultivation of the happiness of being or the happiness we bring into the world by aligning with our core values and aspirations, developing attention skills, and utilizing contemplative inquiry to investigate our lived experience.
