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,

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:
