Discussion of Satipatthana bhavanā and Vipassana bhavana.
I'm listening to some talks (on Dharmaseed) by Arinna Weisman (on chronic pain) and was wondering if anyone here knows anything about her. Her website's pretty good (practices in the Burmese U Ba Khin/S. Goenka/Webu Sayadaw tradition/lineage).
Seems pretty solid except when she talks of "Taking a stand for love," I'm not sure what she means? I think she means metta, which makes some sense, but she also might mean "accepting", etc....
"You stop me, obviously with a demand for a personal explanation. 'How is it, you write, 'that you reject with such immitigable scorn the very foundation-stones of Buddhism, and yet refer disciples enthusiastically to the technique of some of its subtlest super-structures?'
