Jeff Brown – The Buddha Was The Master Of Dissociation

Thank God for people like Jeff Brown. His insight and capacity to discern the toxic and unhealthy thinking out there, mirrors mine and is rare.

I will also add Buddhism also perpetuates victim blaming and re-victimising trauma survivors.

It is nothing but toxic, irrational and unhealthy thinking.

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

  1. Yes! Which might explain why my Pentecostal minister father, after losing his faith, leaving the ministry, getting arrested, and then spending several months on a psych ward, became a Buddhist after all of that.

  2. You are so right! I have read buddhist-related writings that say that traumatic events and life challenges are “gifts”. Pema Chodron said that her cheating husband was the best thing that happened to her….“He was one of my greatest teachers because he left me,” she says. “That’s the simple truth.” I understand that she learned a lot about herself during that process of coming to terms with the situation, but why give him credit? Lying to and cheating on your spouse is abusive and it should be stated as such and not seen as revelatory. Are rape and sexual abuse considered to be “gifts” because one has to reach into the depths of one’s soul to come to terms with how one’s life will proceed into the future? Should Holocaust survivors look at their abuse as overcoming and becoming stronger from their experiences? They didn’t ask nor want that abuse. What is needed is justice for these indignities.
