Started in 2000 by leaders in contemplative tradition, including HH Dalai Lama and Dr. Alan Wallace, and leaders in emotions research such as Dr. Paul Ekman, 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.
