The teachers left me more wounded than when I started meditation. They're into a very narrow view of Buddhism that leaves one feeling wrong for "Having your own experience." They attract survivors, addicts and vulnerable people and abuse their power in subtle and profound ways preaching the message in such a convoluted bunch of words luring one into some path and missing the point of Buddhism completely. There is such a thing as over-teaching which they are very good at. Be ready to run for the door when you find you are on a different path and disagree with the precious teachings. They are hard-core but come across as benevolent. They are not up front with what they are about.
