Anyone here have experience with the #meditation system detailed in The Mind Illuminated? Looking to renew and advance my practice. Pros and cons? #Buddhism #neuroscience #TMI #Culadasa #TheMindIlluminated #Dharma

@Flophouse_Sam I am not familiar with that system. You might be interested in Michael W. Taft’s interviews with Culadasa on his Deconstructing Yourself podcast.

@BhikkhuBeckett @anatta Thanks Bhikkhu! I'm a regular D.Y. listener but I get a bit mixed up about what I've heard /what practices can be attributed to whom (hence my questions!). I'll definitely revisit this. Thanks for the link.

@Flophouse_Sam @BhikkhuBeckett ugh, yeah that is not a good look. I find it best to dedicate myself to teachings over the personalities themselves. I remember how disappointed I was with how Noah Levine handled his controversy. We as a community have to stop elevating normal people to this higher unrealistic standard of spiritually, morality, etc. It just hurts us more when we are reminded they are still human and suffer from human failings.

@anatta @Flophouse_Sam Formation of the SF Dharma Collective in the wake of Levine’s downfall is an example of both.
