A free training with Eve Ekman and Ryan Redman.

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. By integrating the wisdom traditions of modern psychology, current emotion research, and contemplative practices, CEB provides a secular platform for transformation.

For this mini-CEB training we will draw on a core portion of this curriculum with a focus on developing attention training to stabilize the mind, identify and investigate root causes of anger and fear, and practice setting clear, compassionate, intentions to guide us towards deeps meaning and purpose in life. The mornings will emphasize developing inner resilience through contemplation and meditation, afternoons will include small group emotion mapping, dyadic reflection, and discussion.

With the tools of CEB, we can draw upon our human capacity to wisely and compassionately actualize individual and collective well-being and reform a wholesome relationship with the planet.
