(2) The  development of this practice as it is used in the West by 
Buddhists (like  Tara Brach) today.

(3) The specific role, if any, of psychotherapeutic  ideas and practices 
in the use of guided meditation by Westerners.  Especially I am 
interested in to what extent Jung's concept of "active  imagination" may 
have played an important role.
My experience is that no Zen teachers use guided meditation. Many non-Zen  
Mahayana teachers use guided meditation for beginning students. Almost all  
vipassana teachers use guided meditation as part of the teacher process.
I don't see how active imagination has anything to do with Buddhist guided  
meditation. What did you have in mind?
