The Thanyapura Mind Centre (TMC) offers ongoing training in cognitive and emotional balance.
Beginning in the year 2000, psychologist Paul Ekman and Buddhist scholar and contemplative B. Alan Wallace devised a 42-hour training programme called Cultivating Emotional Balance, which has been scientifically studied by a joint effort from the University of California, San Francisco and the Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies. This training programme draws from meditative practices in the Buddhist tradition, focusing on the cultivation of attention, meta cognition, mindfulness, empathy, and compassion, combined with evidence-based methods drawn from modern psychology focusing on the cultivation of emotional regulation and mindfulness. The six-week training for those wishing to become qualified instructors of this programme will include both theoretical and practical instruction in the meditative and psychological aspects of this programme.
