CEB Cultivating Emotional Balance

¿Qué es Mindfulness CEB?

Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB) is appropriate for anyone, but especially for the rising number of individuals living or working in high-stress environments. CEB can create pathways to compassion through the ability to recognize the suffering of others, and us, and tolerate this distress more effectively. CEB is not explicitly a compassion training, however, but learning how to meaningfully attend to the emotional experiences between the self and others, coupled with attention meditations (Mindfulness) and the practices of loving-kindness, empathetic joy, compassion, and equanimity, fosters compassion and constructive interpersonal communication.

Emotional skills help us to better understand emotional life, and thereby increase constructive and decrease destructive emotional engagements. The contemplative practice emphasizes the development of genuine happiness through connection to core aspirations. Genuine well-being focuses on improving the efforts to achieve more stable welfare, not driven by the stimulus versus the predominant focus on sensual, and transitory pleasure. It is an Aristotelian idea that describes the contentment that arises from what we bring to, as opposed to taking from the world, and thus creates true human flourishing.

This training demonstrated great benefits through rigorous research at the University of California in San Francisco. The CEB teachers training began in 2010, and each year 50 new teachers participate in an intensive 5-week teacher training retreat. CEB integrates the wisdom traditions of western psychology and eastern contemplative practices with the explicit intention of providing secular practices that can help anyone achieve greater emotional awareness and balance. It is being taught by teachers from over 21 countries and has been adapted for various settings including the general public, workplaces, communities, boardrooms, schools, dharma centres, wellbeing centres, universities, hospitals, jails (both for inmates and guards) and more.
