Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 10 January, 2017 Q: I came up because I just saw something that I hadn’t seen before… some kind of… the best way I can label it right now is like a fear of intimacy. James: How is it showing up? What is it you’re noticing? Q: It’s kind of here, in the heart. James: Is it hot, cold, tight, heavy? Q: It’s tight. James: Really feel into that tightness, right now.
