Mindfulness-Based Emotional Balance 
An 8-week psychoeducational and experiential course 

Monday evenings
6:15 p.m. – 8:30 p.m
January 29th - March 19th 
Westfield, New Jersey
Tuition : $400 includes eight Monday night classes and one full day retreat 

Learn to enhance emotional balance through cultivating acceptance and compassion toward oneself and others. Mindfulness-Based Emotional Balance (MBEB) synthesizes the well-documented methods of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, contemporary emotion research, and compassion practices. This method has been shown to reduce stress, depression, and anxiety, while increasing mindfulness, self-compassion, and resilience.

Participants in this program will have the opportunity to:
o Learn or deepen a personal mindfulness meditation practice
o Explore emotions such as fear and anger
o Use mindfulness-based strategies to cope with stress and emotional reactivity
o Learn techniques to cultivate kindness, forgiveness, and compassion for ourselves and others

The program is both experiential and educational, and requires some practice between classes. Using mindfulness meditation as our foundation, we’ll cultivate an attitude of self-acceptance, and learn to bring mindfulness to all areas of life. With mindfulness, we may increase our capacity to savor what’s good, befriend difficulties, and better tolerate a range of emotional experience. People completing this and similar mindfulness-based programs often report being better able to “ride the waves” when the going gets rough.


Introduction to MBSR is currently offered on an individual basis and groups will be forming in the future.
