Eve Ekman, MSW, PhD

Emotion regulation and mindfulness trainer


Eve Ekman is a stress, emotion, and empathy postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, San Francisco’s Osher Center of Integrative Medicine. The daughter of Paul Ekman, a pioneering founder of the field of emotion research, Eve is an internationally sought-after trainer of emotion regulation and mindfulness skills.

Her research interests are inspired by her past experience as a medical social worker in the emergency department of San Francisco General Hospital and her training in Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB), an applied emotion-regulation and mindfulness intervention.

At the Osher Center, Eve continues to refine the framework, research, and training in the areas of meaning, empathy, and burnout. She provides trainings based on CEB to a wide array of clients in technology, health care, criminal justice, law, and education. She has also led a training for Wisdom 2.0, and gave a TEDx talk at California State East Bay.

In 2012, an Elle magazine profile introduced Eve’s research into mainstream media.
