So do you have a comment about this?
To amplify my comment to Bill. When I watched Gempo say this to a student, I
do not believe he was saying this in such a way as to confront the student with
his own reality, a.k.a. "tough love". Gempo was visably irritated, and his
body language, tone of voice and entire behavior indicated that he, himself,
had simply lost control. As for Andrew Cohen, frankly-- I cannot understand
this guy. He can talk non-stop for hours. My ears hurt when starts rambling
on and on with what I perceive as psycho-spiritual-intelli-babble. Hailed as
brilliant, I cannot understand most of what he says.
I do understand the point of this video, but I can't see Jack Kornfield, TNH,
Cheryl Hubbard and so on, behaving this way. But perhaps it is also telling to
note that this is a teaching style I avoided as not right for me.
