Oh, lord. Yeah, I've seen that before -- commonly, in Buddhist teaching, which has traditionally been aimed at men. A lot of the stuff that's meant to break down ego, and works for a lot of men, just reinforces the structures of oppression, for a lot of women. And reinforces the structures of ego-attachment, for that matter, which are by no means limited to self-aggrandisement and self-glorification; they flourish nicely in self-deprivation and self-denigration, too.

I hope all goes well.
