Thanks Chris, it looks interesting!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Very interesting Chris. Thank you. The section on Imaging was of particular interest to me as I have some input into an ongoing research programme using imaging to attempt to evaluate some aspects of CBT.
The Dzogchen teacher Ngagpa Chogyam participated in similar studies to that mentioned in the essay..I will see if I can dig out some of the data. The trouble is I havent seen it since before we moved house.... :?
