My remarks as to Satipatthana Sutta practice are in full agreement with Analayo's commentary.

Kind regards

It is not possible to discuss the subtleties of Vipassana in the absence of hands-on instruction and a period of supervised practice....or rather it is, but when it is done...it shows.

I meant more what happens experientially Norman...there are many advantages of attending instruction in more than one school of Vipassana...Goenka and Sayadaw for example. A possible disadvantage is that processes that are seen as important in one school are sometimes deemphasised in another, or even discouraged. Swings and roundbouts. One has a wider range of responses to any given need but one can lose clarity.
