Wednesday-Friday, 2 nights
CE Credits available
Plus 2 nights all-inclusive accommodations priced separately below.
Reunite with a supportive community of Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB) teachers and trainers and learn creative new methods for sharing your skills with diverse populations.
This unique weekend workshop with three leading CEB trainers—Eve Ekman, PhD, Ryan Redman, MS, and Venerable Tenzin Chogkyi—is designed to inspire your teaching while providing you with the tools needed for offering CEB to a wider audience.
With the most up-to-date teaching materials and a refreshed connection to the basic pedagogical foundation, this weekend you will learn:
Through group discussion, small-group work, and guided practice teaching sessions, you will increase your confidence, deepen your understanding of the versatility of CEB, and take a break from your usual schedule to gather with those who share your passion for giving others the lifelong rewards of tools for emotional balance.
Relax into a refreshing weekend as you improve your skills and receive updated content for your toolkit.
Eve Ekman is a stress, emotion, and empathy postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, San Francisco’s Osher Center of Integrative Medicine. The daughter of Paul Ekman, a pioneering founder of the field of emotion research, Eve is an internationally sought-after trainer of emotion regulation and mindfulness skills.
Her research interests are inspired by her past experience as a medical social worker in the emergency department of San Francisco General Hospital and her training in Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB), an applied emotion-regulation and mindfulness intervention.
At the Osher Center, Eve continues to refine the framework, research, and training in the areas of meaning, empathy, and burnout. She provides trainings based on CEB to a wide array of clients in technology, health care, criminal justice, law, and education. She has also led a training for Wisdom 2.0, and gave a TEDx talk at California State East Bay.
In 2012, an Elle magazine profile introduced Eve’s research into mainstream media.
Ryan Redman is cofounder and executive director of the Flourish Foundation, a social nonprofit dedicated to promoting contemplative practices in communities for the purpose of achieving mental balance and universal compassion.
He is also a certified instructor of Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB) and serves as a core faculty member of the Inner Kids Program. He has been teaching contemplative-based practices in Sun Valley, Idaho, for the past 15 years.
Ryan developed an interest in contemplative practices at an early age. In his early 20s he spent three years in India, deepening his personal practice and furthering his understanding of various traditions. He holds a master’s degree in contemplative education from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, and continues to study meditation with B. Alan Wallace.
Ryan is actively involved in local community service as a Rotarian and hospice volunteer, and each year he leads international service projects to Central America and Asia.
Venerable Tenzin Chogkyi, an ordained Buddhist nun and dharma teacher, has been studying and practicing Buddhism for more than 30 years. In 1991 she bought a one-way ticket to India and became a student of the Dalai Lama, Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche, and Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
In 2006, she completed a six-year solitary meditation retreat and since then has been teaching at Buddhist centers in North and South America, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. She is a visiting teacher for the Liberation Prison Project, having taught Buddhist meditation and philosophy in prisons in the United States, Colombia, Australia, and New Zealand.
Tenzin Chogkyi is also a certified teacher of Cultivating Emotional Balance, a secular program for dealing with emotions, developed by B. Alan Wallace and Paul Ekman at the Dalai Lama’s request. She is passionate about prison reform, animal rights, and bringing an end to human trafficking and other modern forms of slavery.
