Five Key Benefits

Emotional Management: Being better equipped to recognize and manage destructive emotions/negative moods and cultivate positivity

Given the increasing level of stress in our lives, the Dalai Lama requested a group of internationally recognized neuroscientists, psychologists, leadership experts and meditation practitioners to develop a secular program to help people manage the everyday obstacles of our destructive emotions and cultivate a wholesome way of being.
The curriculum combines the latest science of emotions and time tested Indo-Tibetan attention and mind management techniques. More details can be found at: http://cultivating-emotional-balance.org/.

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
Over six weeks in New York and Switzerland, I completed an intensive six-week teacher training certification. For the next six months, I applied the lessons learned and was pleasantly surprised to see a reduction in my destructive emotions, improvement in two significant relationships and an overall improvement in mental balance.
This personal experience was the catalyst I needed to bring this world-class in-depth personal transformation program to India both for individuals and for organizational teams.
It has been great to see the participants transform over the duration of the program.

Though a lifelong fan of personal development literature and learning programs, I'm also been a person whose idealism is tempered with a healthy dash of cynicism, I didn't think that I would ever write a testimonial about a course, stating that it changed my life. However I'm glad to finally be able to say with conviction that the Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB) course led by Sanjay, has made a big positive change to my outlook and the way I approach both my personal & work life.
In the last few years, I'd been struggling with an increasing emotional see-saw often the result of external situations beyond my control. I signed up for the CEB course, with the primary aim of trying to cope better with these ups and downs. The course presents a wonderful framework to address the issue of achieving emotional balance and happiness. What appealed to me was that it is combines the best of western psychology & neuroscience and our own traditional "eastern" philosophies - CEB seamlessly integrates the 2 perspectives, and creates a simple but powerful blend of teaching & techniques that one can put into practice from Day 1.
The course equipped me with a set of wisdom AND heart practices (analytical tools as well as meditative practices), that have greatly in regulating the sudden swings/outbursts of emotion that I'd been experiencing. I have had two clear takeaways from the course - the first is a much better ability to look at /deal with to any situation or stressful trigger with more objectivity and with less 'reactivity". The second is a wider perspective, and enhanced sense of calmness, which helps cope with the larger stressors in my life.
I can without a doubt say that this has been one of the best investments of my time I have made - thanks Sanjay for introducing me to CEB and the wider learning community- look forward to the continuing journey ahead.
