Event description
3 Saturdays! April 11,18, 25 CBCT® is a secular ethics training with roots in buddhism interfaced with neuroscience and psychology.

About this Event

CBCT® is a secular ethics training developed at Emory University by Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, PhD with input from multiple disciplines and taught in medical & educational institutions­—anyone can learn this practice.

CBCT®, with roots in buddhism, has interfaced eastern meditation with neuroscience and psychology. It first couples self-nurturance with focused attention meditations, and then adds progressive contemplative exercises that help one gain insight/awareness of how one’s attitudes and behaviors either support or hinder a compassionate response toward life’s ups and downs.

Research shows multiple biomarker and social benefits including increased personal resilience, improved satisfaction, plus a greater capacity for tenderness toward self and others.
