> He doesn't do the deep insight. His approach is more the slow sculpt. The river on rock, molding, and smoothing. He'll introduce something and explain it, then say it may or may not apply, then sits back and a very long time later I'll incorporate all his small observations into myself. Well, not that absolutely. But we do more of the dance of ideas - introductory bow, retreat, circle, approach, dip, embrace. The ideas flow to and fro and become shaped and changed as they go along so that what we finally end up with isn't his or mine, and we both see things a bit differently perhaps. Maybe that's why the relationship itself is so important?

I loved the imagery in this. Just beautiful. Also goes to show how different therapy can be for each of us--there's no retreat when it comes to my pdoc! Well, not exactly true. If I can really convince him, he'll back off, but he's not very good at conceding defeat.

Thanks for the thread.
