'Cultivating Emotional Balance' (CEB) is an evidence-based training programme being presented in Perth this March and April.

The upcoming course will be run by certified CEB teachers Corey Jackson and Kirsti Kilbane. The varied backgrounds of the two in contemplative practice, mental health and psychology make for an effective, engaging and remarkable delivery. CEB was developed by world renowned psychologist Professor Paul Ekman, who is prominent within the field of emotions, and Dr Alan Wallace, a highly respected scholar of contemplative traditions.

CEB was formulated through discussions between biobehavioral scientists studying emotion and the Dalai Lama in March 2000. 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.

All are welcome to attend a free introductory talk on 7 March at Hayagriva Buddhist Centre (HBC) from 7:00pm; please note bookings are required to attend this event.

The course will then be held over three weekends in March and April: 8 & 9 March, 29 & 30 March, 12 & 13 April, from 9 to 5pm each day. Alternatively, you can commit to just the first weekend.

(Note that those attending either the first weekend or the whole course are not required to attend the free introductory talk on 7 March).

The venues and corresponding dates are noted below:

March 8 & 9 George Burnett Leisure Centre, Manning Road, Karawara

March 29 & 30, April 12 & 13 Beacon Yoga Centre, 151 South Street, Beaconsfield
