Cultivating Emotional Balance Teacher Training Application Information

The ninth Cultivating Emotional Balance Teacher Training (CEBTT) will take place next summer from June 19th - July 23rd, 2018 at Landguet Ried, Bern, Switzerland. It will be led by Dr. Alan Wallace and Eve Ekman Ph.D.

During the first two weeks, Eve Ekman will teach the theories and practices of the psychology of emotional balance. In the latter three weeks, Dr. Alan Wallace will teach the relevant theories and practices of Buddhism, particularly focusing on the cultivation of attention, insight through the practice of mindfulness, as well as the qualities of loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity (the Four Immeasurables). The format will consist of a combination of lectures, meditation, teaching opportunities, and discussion.

Alan will co-teach CEBTT in 2018, but this will most likely be the last time he will do so. So if people wish to receive the training from Alan, next year is the time to do it.
