About this Event

Want to learn a method that can help melt barriers to connecting deeper with yourself and others? 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.

Pre-Registration Required $250- $200 Sliding Scale
