The problem I see with synthesizing a "technique" is that it becomes your practice, in-and-of itself, whereas the practice of the Noble Eightfold Path should entail Right View driving your effort, speech, action, livelihood, mindfulness, mental composure etc. in the right
direction. Once the "technique" becomes divorced from Right View, there's no assurance that it's right... as you've found out from your experiences.
"Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education." - Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh
"The uprooting of identity is seen by the noble ones as pleasurable; but this contradicts what the whole world sees." (Snp 3.12)
"To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead" - Thomas Paine
