Thanks for providing a link to the article.
I think the article is very interesting and if one can unpack the message from some of the Mahayanist/Vajrayanist contextualization there is an awful lot there that is very applicable to Theravadin practitioners and their sanghas. I was interested to read of Welwood's observations which I have also witnessed. However, I am no psychotherapist.
“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.
