"Breathe into your body and notice what you are feeling," I said to Bryan in our second phone session. "What are you feeling?"
"I feel bad and uncomfortable. I don't like focusing in my body."
"Where do you focus most of the time?"
"In my mind. I think about work all day and then the rest of the time I daydream or think of other things."
"So you do all you can to stay in your head and out of your body - right?"
"Right. It doesn't feel good in my body."
"Bryan, imagine that you always ignore your little daughter, and then when you finally do give her some attention, you find that she is upset with you for ignoring her all the time - and then you ignore her more because you don't want to know that she is upset with you for ignoring her so much."
"I would never do that with my daughter."
