Re: 'Shame on You' by Clara Salaman

Yes DASKA I'm sure there are things in the book that are true. The problem is we don't know for sure what is true and what isn't. As you said "we" know what is true. Great but not everyone has your knowledge. In these books there are some things that are true and many things are not. Even ...

Re: 'Shame on You' by Clara Salaman

If you read the article carefully it says: "and it has come in the form of Clara’s gripping, partly autobiographical novel Shame On You. " Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/you/article-1201397/It-relief-discover-I-did-fit-real-world.html#ixzz0vppNesEt Partly autobiographical which...

Re: NYC School of Practical Philosophy

Thank you for your reply

Looking forward to posts from people who have experience in the NYC schools.

See that a lot of people have looked this post over but haven't posted anything. Not sure why.

Re: NYC School of Practical Philosophy

woodgreen - Thanks appreciate the reply. One thing I'll say as a correction I didn't say the school didn't have to change. Just the initiation I thought was weird but OK and didn't have to change because it isn't a great departure from any mantra based meditation initiation. The school on the other ...

Re: NYC School of Practical Philosophy

woodgreen - Yes went through the initiation and had no idea what to expect.

It was tough. I thought too ...

Re: NYC School of Practical Philosophy

It's funny in one of my last groups the men were the ones who ...

Attending the NYC branch for several years now and every once in a while look at forums for what people are saying about the school of practical philosophy and it seems the UK branch even to this day is so different from the NYC branch. There was a recent article in the NY Times about the school and...
