Good to hear a little of Virginia Satir's work remembered. (1:59) and from there some Bandler. Smile

BTW, John Ramsay had a tremendous sense of what others were thinking which he used at his shop and among magicians.

A wonderful talk Simon.

I really enjoyed the lines and presentation, and felt, if anything, the audience were too mild.

Just a couple of minor points. First, the benefits of biofeedback, such as smiling, on mood are mitigated, and sometimes disappear, when explicit. As you would know, in most studies, the movements are incidental. But, when people are actually told to smile, the benefits, at least as measured by implicit or indirect measures, are not significant. If you know of any studies that diverge from this assumption, please let me know, because I could very well have missed this research.

I have been both a psychotherapist and magician for over 30 years, love continuing to learn about the blend of psychology and magic.
