I'm not sure about CBT but DBT (which is related, I think) is definitely based on ideas from Buddhism, so that makes sense. I think psychologists have been trying in several ways to bring the wisdom of the Buddhist approach to emotional regulation into a Western context for awhile now. (Btw if the Buddhist nun is Pema Chodron, her works are some of my favorites!)

Well I would have thought in this day and age they would have some kind of simple computer program that could identify which customers were out and only send messages to those, yes. And if they don't, and this was sent out to everyone (I got it too, service is fine), they really should have worded it differently. Like "IF your service has been out, we're working to get it restored". I saw that text and immediately got nervous and went to check my connection. This was poorly executed.
