Spring 2017 HSP Highlights & Insights

Sure signs of Spring … sure signs of new life ..

Happy Spring dear HSPs,

If you are like me, and many of my friends and colleagues,  this past fall and winter have been difficult, to say the least.    If you haven’t been affected by the world’s current events, consider yourself lucky.   One thing we know for sure:  life continues, and with it, Spring inevitably comes.

I have spent a lot of time in the last few months in what I have come to call my “HSP Inner Sanctuary.”  It is a place I go, sometimes in my mind, sometimes in a physical place, but it is always a place my heart feels known, understood, and soothed.  It is a place where I practice extreme self-care, reflecting on my day, my life,  and where I seek new ways to continue growing, re-framing, and learning so that I can show up authentically in the world.

A safe childhood place for me was fishing with my Mother off a pier, with a cane pole and bobber. I’m sure this is where I first unknowingly learned to meditate .

I’ve been grateful, to return once again to Pema Chodron, and the Buddhist concepts of  tonglen and “maitre”, pronounced “my tree.”  I share this work in the Insight link below.

A Buddhist Maitri Meditation

Here are  lessons learned from Pema Chodron whose work inspired my own  Buddhist Maitri Meditation.  You can find it here.

Nature as Healer and Teacher 
Why not make an “HSP Artist Date” with yourself and nature?
You can find a special invitation and instructions  here.   We will share in this beautiful, experiential activity at the 2017 HSP Gathering Retreats.
