I'm sorry that I do not know who Gendlin is and also the term or intened meaning of felt sence. So it is a little hard to answer correctly. But if that refers to a sort of intuition and visual contact, then, most definitely. One of Dr. Gilligan's presentation at the upcoming congress concerns the how language and non-verbal connections evoke the 'felt sense'. To me it a 'felt sense' this is a label for the unconscious method of making and understanding (or a least a search for one) that inputs from our scattered and sometimes consciously un-noticed perceptions - often called intuition - and output pieces of 'hunches' or thought (visual, auditory, or kinesthetic) to the conscious mind. That is how I use the concept of 'felt sense' I imagine Dr. Gilligan's take it similar.
