I hope this finds you entering into a New Year filled with confidence and expectations of new and creative things to come !!  I know many HPSs who are joyfully anticipating a”transitional year” of exciting planned changes.   However, I also know many others who are dealing with loss, disappointment, health or relationship issues, or are just overwhelmed with the challenges of life in general.

In this Winter Issue of HSP Highlights and Insights I have both Insights and Highlights to share which I hope will address the struggles and challenges as well as the anticipation of new things.

 Let’s start with HSP Insights:
Facing and Celebrating Life’s Challenges and Joys:  Maitri & Tonglen
A Buddhist Meditation for HSPs
Top Eleven Ways for HSPs to Thrive by Jacquelyn Strickland

Summer 2018 ~ HSP Highlights & Insights

Yes, I love trees, and see them as ancient friends.

Summer greetings dear HSPs,
Much is happening around the world which can be distressing and overwhelming even for the most resilient, hardy population, much less we highly sensitive people.  What is helped me the most this summer, as always, is my time spent in nature.  When we are in nature it feels as though our senses are soothed, our hearts are comforted, and there is a clear, direct line to some type of wisdom that always helps me clarify troubling situations or  “what wants my heart’s attention.”  A recent “HSP Quote Worth Remembering”  that I love is:

“Extreme self-care helps me thrive.

Thanks to Meet Up ( there are now multitude of ways to find like minded people to connect with, hike with, learn from, and help “ban isolation” which can be a challenge for some HSPs.

Here are the Highlights & Insights from my Summer 2018 Newsletter:
