Anybody know the "Insightforum" Yahoo Group?

Postby AdvaitaJ » Sat Jan 31, 2009 1:22 am

I got two e-mails today inviting me to join the Yahoo Group "Insightforum". Never trusting such things in e-mail, I went straight to Yahoo Groups and tried to find it -- no such animal as far as Yahoo search knows.

1. Midpeninsula Insight Discussion Forum: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/insightforum

— I don't know anything about this one.

2. Insight Forum: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/insight_forum

— Inactive since 2007

3. Insight Practice Forum: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/InsightPractice

— Very active group moderated by Jinavamsa/Mitchell Ginsburg, an American student of the Thai teacher Dhiravamsa. Its threads are pretty wide-ranging, but the focus is chiefly North American vipassanā, and especially the more eclectic and psychotherapy-oriented wing of this movement. I've been a member almost since it started, but haven't read it for ages as it's not really my cup of tea.

Best wishes,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu

Dear Dhammanando,

The first link you supplied nailed it. I still don't know why I received the invitation, but I have donated to IMC and certainly listened to many of the audio dharma talks that are recorded there. Thanks for solving half the mystery!
:thanks:
