Student-teacher relationships from a psychological standpoint: A booklet


Here is a link to a booklet Jikyo Roshi, a therapist, produced some ten years ago on the psychological aspects of student-teacher relationships.  It was circulated to all White Plum Asanga teachers at the recent annual meeting.  I am posting this link here because I think the information it contains should be available to anyone contemplating entering into such a relationship.  Many of the ethically problematic issues that arise within spiritual communities can be traced to a lack of awareness on the part of teachers and students of these dynamics.
