Re: Sedona/Flagstaff

Garchen is a good idea. Sedona is notorious for faux- Buddhist cult nonsense tho so keep your head up. "Jetsuma" has a presence there or at least did. Maybe they've settled down and become good practitioners, but the stuff coming out 10-15 years ago made it seem highly skip-able, even if they did h...

Re: Sedona/Flagstaff

Hey guys, I'm headed to Flagstaff and Sedona this weekend for a brief visit and was wondering if anyone knows of any good Buddhist, especially of the Tibetan or Vajrayana persuasion, things to do there. I can't find any groups with actual practices, except there is the Stupa. Any suggestions are ap...

Sounds a little Gestalt like, no? What is your therapeutic school?
A mixture of gestalt, existential, client-based and body focused with a few Danish influences on the side.
Sounds very interesting! Danish influences would definitely be completely new to me.

Re: How to face false accusation

Well, despite some naysayers opinions, that whole Freudian defense mechanism theory is pretty accurate, I think, on how some of that works. The whole denial and projection thing... Are you familiar with the Motivational Interviewing/Enhancement people's take on denial? IMO their argument is more co...

Re: Denial and defense mechanism - Western Pysch perspective

Same here, and I am minimally educated, to be honest. My views are all "this is how I feel at the time". since we're talking about this stuff, I'm seriously considering starting Lama Tsultrim Allione's "Feeding your demons" training for clinical work because it seems like a very good integrative ap...

Re: Denial and defense mechanism - Western Pysch perspective

I think it can ultimately be boiled down to our good ol Buddhist "passion aggression and prejudice" and ego but I guess I may be predisposed to an "integrated approach." I pretty much see some truth in a lot of different models, but then I'm just working on my licensure and am in no way an expert. ...

Re: How to face false accusation

Isn't this the truth. So many times I get told how the job I chose to do for low pay I am actually doing because I want to "make money off of them"...if they only knew. I once had someone accuse me of being in league with the prosecutors office...this when working in conjunction with an alternative...

Denial and defense mechanism - Western Pysch perspective

You can be grateful because you are exhausting your previous negative karma. I know teachers who say to be falsely accused of wrong doing is a great thing and an excellent opportunity etc. In my job, being falsely accused is de riguer. Now when someone deliberately lies or accuses me of something I...

Re: New Rainbowbody Manifestation

So, silly question, when you achieve rainbow body, you shrink down and get really small??? How does that work? Not a silly question...after the breath etc has stopped the body slowly reverts back to the elements and then into light leaving only the hair and nails behind. As was said previously this...

Re: How do you respond to someone who likes to armchair psychoanalyze you out of arrogance?

Has anyone else dealt with this kind of thing and if so, what is your verbal response to it? I have a friend who likes to analyze people and project his own issues onto others. He seems to have an incredibly difficult time seeing his own dysfunction and is quite arrogant. I'd tell him exactly like ...

Clearly this only happened because there weren’t enough yoga practitioners carrying guns. We need regulations requiring armed guards at all yoga studios. Lululemon needs to start selling holsters.
So sad I have to laugh, and cry.
