Filling in the gaps between religion and philosophy – is this what a secular approach to Buddhism does?
Do you think there is a discussion to be had about how a secular approach to Buddhism fits into the space between religion and philosophy?

From time to time I’ve heard participants at retreats etc mention the reason they want to learn meditation is to reduce/manage their anxiety [a couple of my friends dabbled in meditation (they never really became meditators) because they hoped meditating would reduce their anxiety – it didn’t and they no longer meditate].
