I went to a meditation class last night and got so cross with it that I've written it up here:

Aaaaaaargh! That class sounds horrible, and the woman running it sounds like an irresponsible, ignorant narcissist!

You can do a lot better. I hope her students don't take on board everything she says.

Sorry the class was badly led :-( It sounds like the leader was parroting things she'd read rather than actually knowing what she was doing :-(

Glad you enjoyed the actual meditation bit anyway.

Yes, I think she was. And remembering about what you've told me before about meditation was what made me think that she might not be representative of Buddhism as a whole, so thank you :)

That sounds horrible, I'm so sorry you went through that! I had an annoying counterproductive therapist a few weeks ago too – it's really awful when, as you say, the person in authority who is supposed to be helping people get better is actually saying really problematic things and making it worse.

Yes, it's awful! Even worse when it's supposed to be a therapist, poor you >:( They're supposed to have been trained! Grrr.

Wow, what a load of bollocks (her, not you!!) Still, it meant you made a great blog post, so it wasn't all bad! :-)
