“The Trauma Dharma” – The “First Do No Harm” training program aims to make meditation safer, in part by recognizing the pitfalls. – Tricycle

Interesting article on Buddhist website, Tricycle, with an interview of Dr. Willoughby Britton of Brown University regarding her research into meditation related difficulties. Interestingly, she is now recommending that mindfulness teachers receive “informed consent” informing their meditation students of the potential dangers of meditation. She also notes that meditation-related difficulties are found not only among meditators with trauma and mental illness in their backgrounds but also with students without these backgrounds training under experienced teachers.  The article can be found here:  The Trauma Dharma
