You should perhaps quote tilt when you speak to tilt.
On the other hand, deep teachings can do a great deal of harm. I recall Jung describing an archetypal motif of a sorcerer who was not ready for the magic (horrible things happen!). It can really be a case of too much too soon...
And also Trungpa warning about Spiritual Materialism - plucking all these delectable goodies from this smorgasbord of Buddhism(s) is just bound to give us an indigestion (or a big head covering a great deal of confusion).

On the other hand, if the motivation is sincere and there is an established direction and deep commitment, maybe it can work?
