The Sakyong wasn’t the only one

Meditation teacher and author Lodro P. Rinzler announced that he was leaving the Buddhist group Shambhala International on July 1 after several women came forward to accuse its leader, Sakyong Mipham, of sexual assault. He failed to mention that he had been accused of sexual misconduct himself.

I’ve had an idea for a blog post about Rinzler and his MNDFL business for a while. I’m very pleased with the potential title: “Vowels aren’t the only thing missing at MNDFL.” Maybe I should actually go ahead and write it.
