Arinna Weisman

Post by danieLion » Fri Aug 03, 2012 11:59 pm

I'm listening to some talks (on Dharmaseed) by Arinna Weisman (on chronic pain) and was wondering if anyone here knows anything about her. Her website's pretty good (practices in the Burmese U Ba Khin/S. Goenka/Webu Sayadaw tradition/lineage).

Seems pretty solid except when she talks of "Taking a stand for love," I'm not sure what she means? I think she means metta, which makes some sense, but she also might mean "accepting", etc....
