For me 'transmission' is very much like what the RC Church teaches - that the connection with the Eucharist is real and that the wine and bread convey more than water and dough. Superstition needs to be confronted for what it is - superstition.

There is nothing transmitted other than the teachers knowledge on certain subjects.

Well you could be right about that. However here as elsewhere on these forums, I advocate keeping an open mind. It doesn't cost anything, and nobody has to know. All it takes is the willingness to hold the idea, "Well, maybe..."

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
My posts are for entertainment purposes only. Please don't take anything I say seriously unless you verify it with a real teacher first.

He will certainly do some kind of introduction this retreat.
