This interpretation feels more like a fit. Could we set up a secret headpiece/earphone deal --- you listen to my session and then tell me what to say??

I don't know what the ego-boasts she is referring to? Do you?

THEN! I'm always surprised when she gets excited about something that has been there all along. I mentioned that my yoga class was sad yesterday. One of the secretaries died (age 49) --- losing her battle against anorexia. The teacher spoke throughout the class about her virtues of kindness and compassion. At the end of class he had us sit with palms open on our knees and conjure up someone we loss and think about their spirit. Well, having just lost my brother, my eyes began to water. After a few minutes of meditation he asked us to send them a message --- know that are spiritually with us --- etc. etc. He went on and spoke a bit about the circle of life ..... It was a touching class.

Well my T just about jumps out of her chair. "Do you believe this?"

me: Yes, I often speak about how I hold my grandma near.
t: so you are open to this type of thinking?
me: Yes, I have told you that I'm a spiritual person - just not tied into a specific religious organization
t: this eastern type of thinking believes the ego should not come into play
me: one yoga teacher often says, "everyone please leave your ego at the door before entering the class"

She went on and on. But I sat there confused. I have been going to this yoga studio for close to two years. I often talk about the class and the messages I leave with and how important my instructors are to me. Did she miss that?

Getting back to your post - attachment - it is so darn important and so hard to get to that core. For me it comes down to this - Can I believe she really cares? It is so scary to think that someone really holds me in mind.
