    I admit that I only have my own limited experience to go on, but the teaching I have had has been the opposite of dogmatic or hierarchical and very solidly grounded in the four noble truths.  In fact,  rather than being mystical, my own community seems to give more of a hat tip to Jon Kabat-Zinn and the scientific and neurological aspects of the eightfold path, rather than anything mystical.  

    Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion
