Useful post by Michael Taft on an important aspect of mindfulness practice. Though the practice(s) seem simple on the surface, there can be a lot of complexity in actuality. A teacher can help guide one through some of the puzzling moments as well as provide a fresh perspective.
Taft addresses these qualities you should look for in a teacher:
- They know what they’re doing
- They walk the talk
- They are kind
- They are in the moment
- There is not any hanky-panky with sex, power, or money
- They have enough time to actually meet with you one-on-one every so often
