Ah, very astute question! Yes, this would indeed involve a break in attention. I think of the recovery process in two different ways.
1) If used as it’s described (with the various steps), I think of this as a conscious response to use in the face of more serious or catastrophic mistakes (memory slips, totally garbling entire passages, etc.). And this would be a notable break in attention.
2) But ideally, when it comes to those smaller glitches and mistakes that are more frustrating and annoying than embarrassing and shame-inducing, ideally we would be so focused and engaged, that they barely register on our radar, and if anything does pop through, we almost automatically respond by releasing tension and getting back into the present moment without skipping a beat. In other words, only the slightest break in attention, if any.
