Study Exploring Challenges in Your Vipassana Practice
« on: August 03, 2012, 04:33:11 PM »
Hello Forum-mates!

I’m looking to find a few more Vipassana practitioners to interview on my study of the challenges that Western Buddhists face in their practice.  My goal is to compile a comprehensive guide of these various challenges and resolutions, which I believe will benefit all aspirants on the spiritual path.

I’m a doctoral student and former resident at Spirit Rock Meditation Center.
Those who have already been interviewed have found it a valuable reflection on their spiritual history and have discovered insights about their practice. I’m specifically looking for:

   -  Those who will have recently come off of retreat between now and the  next month
   -  Practitioners raised in Western countries other than the US
   -  Practitioners of minority or marginalized populations
   -  And those who have left Vipassana practice altogether 

Please contact me if you fit any of these criteria and are willing to participate.  Also, if you know of someone or groups who may be interested, I would really appreciate you forwarding this along to them!

The interviews are completely confidential and will be done over Skype or the phone at your convenience.  For more information, you can check out the website, e-mail me at, or call me at (510) 545 6065.

Thank you so much for your help!  Warmly,

Ross Buttner, MA
