Cultivating Emotional Balance

Cultivating Emotional Balance

Hosted by both Hayagriva Buddhist Centre, Perth (HBC), and Hospice of Mother Tara, Bunbury (HMT), Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB) is again coming to WA in January and February 2015.

CEB is an evidence-based training programme for working with our emotions that arose from a dialogue between biobehavioral scientists studying emotion and the Dalai Lama in March 2000. Professor Paul Ekman, a world renowned psychologist within the field of emotions; and Dr Alan Wallace, a highly respected scholar of contemplative traditions then went on to develop this unique programme.

The goal of CEB is to train participants in the skills for reducing emotional responses that are destructive to themselves and others, and enhancing positive states of compassion, empathy, altruism and pro-social behaviour. The programme is secular, integrating ancient contemplative skills with ground breaking science.

More information about this amazing programme can be found at the CEB website. Alternatively, view the following video where Alan Wallace summarises some of the key concepts which will be covered on the course:

About the teacher:

Corey Jackson PicCorey Jackson left his career as a jazz musician in Toronto in 2003 to study Buddhist philosophy, meditation and Tibetan language in India. Inspired by the benefits that meditation had on all aspects of his life, he was certified as a teacher of the Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB). This perfectly facilitates his passion for using ancient wisdom in a modern context, and he regularly teaches CEB in Sydney and around the country. Corey currently majors in Psychology and Sanskrit at the University of Sydney and is the Tibetan interpreter at Vajrayana Institute.
