    What a pleasure to watch this webinar. All creative arts therapists capitalize on this idea of the felt experience. Many years ago I was in a clinical supervision session (both my supervisor and I are music therapists), and we used music to process a particularly challenging situation I was having in dealing with my colleagues. She invited me to play what the situation felt like to me. After stumbling around a bit, I gradually found a sound and a beat that felt about right. My supervisor joined in on another rhythm instrument, and I immediately syncopated my beat, and in that instant I Realized (with an uppercase R!) *my* tendency to not want to play “on the beat” and was able to recognize my own contribution to the trouble I was having. That felt awareness has stuck with me, quite literally, for the past 20 years! I remember it that vividly. Thanks for sharing this fascinating work!

    Terrific demonstration of how to create a “reference experience” of “I don’t want to do this”. Thank you
