How to develop resilience
The affable and ever-insightful Corey Jackson is set to bring his widely popular teachings as an accredited Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB) trainer back to Langri Tangpa Buddhist Centre, Camp Hill, commencing Tuesday, 17 October.
During this 5-week series titled Finding Balance in a Stressful World, participants can expect to learn how destructive emotional episodes can be reduced, professional and personal relationships can be improved and how to develop resilience in the face of adversity. This series is suitable for beginners and will also provide a deeper look at the psychology and training that underlies this unique synthesis of traditional and psychological approaches. Each class will include both practical techniques and meditation and a presentation of recent studies and how they correlate with Buddhist philosophy.
