As one of the Aloka Vihara nuns who has been teaching from Matty Weingast’s book “The First Free Women,” I issued an apology in March, and made another public statement two weeks ago. I hope that this clarifies my views about the nature of the material in the book, and the appropriate language to use when referring to it. I apologize for any confusion or pain that has been caused by my lack of clarity.
You can find my statements on my blog. Also, if you have feedback for me regarding this issue, I’d be happy to receive your comments or questions at email@example.com.
With gratitude for the Path and for the support to continue walking it,
