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. (cultivating-emotional-balance.org)About the Workshop
- What is (and what is not) an emotion?
- How can I map an Emotional Episode Timeline to better understand my emotions?
- How can I work with specific emotions, such as anger?
- How can meditation and contemplative practice help me work with emotions?
These are just some of the topics we will explore in this dynamic, experiential, and participatory 4-hour workshop. Though it offers only a taste of the deep wisdom contained in the full, 42-hour CEB course, you will come away with insights and skills that you can begin using immediately to enhance relationships and access greater awareness in your lived experience.
This workshop is being offered free of charge. Donations to Manjushri Dharma Center, for use of their lovely space, are encouraged and much appreciated.
This event is limited to 18 participants, on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, or for more information, contact Aaron directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or (805) 618-8822.
