I don't want to drift too far from the OP, but could you talk more to the distinction between offering advice and giving feedback? In my mind, the two are the same.
Well why I agreed w/ him so strongly on this...
feedback is simply brief reporting on what I felt, murmuring to my partner (or him to me) "hey you had me but when you turned you disconnected" or "I'm tapping because of pain compliance - you don't have my center."
advice is delving into why it happened, how to correct it, etc.
