This instruction from Jim Jarrett rings through my mind as I crouch over in preparation for my work onstage with my partner. I wrestle with my powerful superego, which is currently asking, no screaming, the question AM I GOOD ENOUGH? I shove the introject out of my mind as the vulnerability of preparing in front of my 11 classmates and, especially, Jim weighs on me. I close my eyes, cover my ears, and rock gently back and forth, taking myself through the steps of the activity I have prepared to do on stage.
