This session forms part of the CEB course, a 42 hour course, which will be offered in blocks throughout the year. For those interested in completing the full 42 hour course we will keep track of attendance over the year. Although elements of the course link together, we aim to ensure each block has individual learnings that are useful and applicable to every day life.
The Cultivating Emotional Balance Training emerged from the Destructive Emotions dialogue between behavioural scientists and the Dalai Lama, Buddhist monks, and scholars at the Mind and Life Institute in Dharamsala, India, in March of 2000. At the culmination of this meeting the Dalai Lama requested that the important ideas raised in these sessions, specifically how to manage the everyday obstacles of our destructive emotions, be turned into an accessible secular training.
