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
