Rob Poynton - reflections session
Rob and John spend almost as much time reflecting on the witnessing session, as the actual sesssion itself. John always sets each filming up as an experiment setting no expectations - if we are to sit in silence for the whole time, then that is just a great an outcome as if the person speaks. It so happens that Rob stayed in silence for 45min....and a whole lot happened.
