Lazy_eye wrote:Anyway, thank you all for the information and feedback -- I'm just trying to sense the lay of the land and perhaps pick up some recommendations. I listen mostly to Goldstein and Tara Brach (she teaches near where I live) and really like what they're doing -- haven't checked out Kornfield yet. Mike, I'll look into Armstrong, Fronsdal and Kearney...appreciate the tips.
