Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB) is a secular and evidence based educational program developed by Dr. Paul Ekman, a world leader in the science of emotion, and Dr. Alan Wallace, an eminent Buddhist scholar and contemplative. The aim of CEB is to introduce people to the well-being and fulfillment that can arise from the cultivation of emotional skills and mind training techniques. The program integrates psychological and contemplative theories and practices for achieving exceptional mental balance; its key features include the arousal of meaningful aspirations, the building of attention skills and mindfulness, and the development of emotional awareness, resilience, and regulation.
