This is just a quick note to alert you to a very thought provoking post.
Meditation is usually taken to be at worst harmless and usually very beneficial. In my experience meditation has been beneficial.
This post is about the experience of a zen practitioner who found that meditation was (at least) not enough. His practice fitted his childhood learning of dissociation. During psychotherapy he learned that he wanted a witness to his trauma and an authentic relationship.
I guess advocates of meditation might argue that this was a misuse of meditation.
It is however a very stimulating post. For me it goes right to the heart of what psychotherapy (and meditation) are about. It is called What Everybody Should Know About the Dangers of Meditation. Highly recommended.
