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

Live Conversation: The HSP Experience in a Time of Fear

You are invited to a free Facebook live conversation

Live Conversation:
The HSP Experience in a Time of Fear

Monday, March 16, 2020 — 11:15 am (Pacific time)

What:  A small, live, intimate group conversation among a few  professional HSP colleagues and friends of the ICHS  ~ International Consultants on High Sensitivity.  We invite you to eavesdrop and comment on our conversation about living, surviving, and yes, thriving in this time of global pandemic.  The conversation will be in English and will be recorded for viewing later.

What is the ICHS – International Consultants on High Sensitivity?
The ICHS is a professional group of HSPs colleagues from different countries who are well-versed in the scientific research pertaining to SPS. They bring a wealth of combined knowledge and experience in how to thrive and honor our trait in our workplaces, families, relationships, and more.
Although it is important to note that Elaine Aron does not “certify” nor “license” anyone in the field of high sensitivity, the ICHS professionals are fortunate to have received in-depth training and ongoing updates regarding the most current research on highly sensitive people from Elaine Aron, PhD.

Who will be participating in this live conversation?
  This intimate conversation will be shared by six of the eight members of the ICHS :
Alane Freund,  LMFT, (California,) Annet de Zwart,  HSP Coach, (Netherlands,) Elena Lupo, Psychologist, (Italy,) Jacquelyn Strickland,  LPC, (Colorado), Karina Zegers de Beijl, HSP Coach( Spain) and Lian Kirksæther, HSP Coach,(Norway.)
We are also admins of the Elaine Aron & High Sensitivity Facebook Group.  Discussions or questions about sensory processing sensitivity, the research, resources, and applications to daily life as an HSP are welcome in this closed Facebook group

When:   Monday, March 16, 2020 – 11:15 am (Pacific;)1 2:15 pm (Mountain;)  2:15 pm (Eastern.)  Check your time zone here:

How do I join the live Facebook conversation?
There is no need to sign up, but you do need to be a member of the closed Elaine Aron-High Sensitivity Facebook page and briefly answer three questions. You can request to  join this closed Facebook group here :
Once you have been approved as a new member of this group, you just “show up” tomorrow on this page, and you will see the live FB conversation (if all goes well technically – fingers crossed. 🙂 )

Stay tuned for the next issue of my newsletter, HSP Highlights & Insights where I will be sharing:

  • Updates on the HSP Gathering Retreats  – the 37th one to be held here in Colorado was postponed for now — (was postponed before the corona virus update)
  • Details about the 3rd HSP Colorado Weekend Retreat to be held in Ft. Collins, Colorado
  • Spirituality & Empowerment:  A Unique Connection, by Jacquelyn Strickland, LPC
  • Two very helpful interviews about our HSP Brain and how it differs from the non-HSP brainMeanwhile, I hope you are all finding ways to practice extreme HSP self-care — something many of us do on a daily basis.

with love,
