April 5th - Cultivating Emotional Balance, Montreal, Canada

Educational Program created by HH Dalai Lama and Prof.Paul Ekman At some point in our lives we may have heard and been constrained by the notion that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” or held tightly to the idea “this is just the way that I am.” Unfortunately, this way of being strangles our imagination and binds us to complacency. In CEB we are encouraged to release the shackles of limitation by broadening our attention to the vast ocean of possibilities, and learn to ride the currents of an ever-changing universe. The truth is that the dynamic force of change that runs through all of nature endows each one of us with an extraordinary capacity to evolve. Specifically, in CEB we are called to move beyond the confines of normalcy by probing the depths of exceptional mental balance and awakening a heartfelt concern toward our own and others’ well-being. This possibility for transformation has been demonstrated by contemplatives for millennia and has been corroborated by neuroscientists, who have demonstrated the phenomenon of neuroplasticity, which correlates to the ways in which the habitual patterns of our mental life have the potential for change throughout our lives. Although human existence cannot be reduced to brain activity, these neuroscientific insights are reinforcing contemplative and psychological discoveries for the way in which introspective strategies such as paying attention and understanding sensations, thoughts, and feelings can have drastic consequences on both individual and collective well-being. PURPOSE AND GOALS OF CEB Very simply the purpose of CEB is to…  Identify and cultivate genuine happiness. “I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness. Whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we all are seeking something better in life. So, I think, the very motion of our life is towards happiness.” ~H. H. Dalai Lama The goals of CEB are to…  Support the cultivation of genuine happiness through leading a constructive emotional life.  Create a choice in how we engage with our emotions.
