    This list causes me the opposite of discomfort. I’m looking forward to seeing these ideas fleshed out.

    Is #17- The Lie of Insurance ?

    We can learn from observing others in their work in psychotherapy. Emulation is a dead end. Emulating a master would be like white knuckling a drive on a treacherous and beautiful road. You can do it for a little while. It will exhaust you. And you will miss out on all the cool scenery. I’ve found that in emulation mode- I miss out on the moments to be present for the sake of sticking to the model, curriculum, or Yalom would say :).

    Thanks for this post.

    I’m really digging your work!
