my primary advice for anyone trying to get into meditation is that if it includes the word 'mindfulness' and it's not used together with 'insight' and 'vipassanā' by a lineaged buddhist, run away


there's an entire mcmeditation industry centred on using out-of-context appropriated scraps of beginner level buddhist techniques mixed in with victim blaming and calvinism out to get you to pay them to either turn you into an even more insufferable techbro or give you just enough for you to trick yourself into believing being oppressed is good for you; and you need to stay the fuck away from it
