  • Great interview Clinton & thanks for being so clear Roby. I had my first Brainspotting session with your colleague Salene 3 days ago & have just finished reading David Grand’s book “Brainspotting”. I’m curious to experience what happens with me on this journey. In amongst the stuff that came up in my session, I had a few minutes which felt exactly like a particular deep meditative state (there are a few different ones) when I’m in an intensive meditation retreat. The main difference was that my eyes were both looking to my far right on a horizontal plane, something I’ve never done during meditation. Who knows, maybe it’s a Resource spot for me??? I’ll watch this space 🙂

    • Thanks Vivian. I’m glad you enjoyed the interview. Great to hear you’re trying out Brainspotting as well!
