Louise, yet again I LOVE your post.
I too find that listening to the MP3 is super powerful. Gillian’s voice is soothing, and she really addresses nuances of all of her sessions in an uncanny way that just works. When I have the presence of mind to put it on at the end of my meal, my experience always goes much better than when I don’t.
And I love the reminder that it takes time to develop this skill, like any other, repetition, practice, making mistakes, trying again, etc.
