There is much to share with you this month!  Since this newsletter is packed with lots of things to read and ponder, you might want to review a few sections at a time, take a break and come back later to finish reading.  
   It has been almost one month since the 21st HSP Gathering Retreat™ in North Andover, Massachusetts ended on Memorial Day, May 30th.


My two lovely co-hosts at the 21st HSP Gathering: Jackie Kutner, Bronx, NY & Ane Axford, Manhattan, NY

There were so many lessons to be learned from this HSP Gathering!  In this issue I am sharing the main points from  my presentation on:  HSPs & Conflict: From Resistance to Successful Resolution 
and from Ane Axford’s Beyond Thriving: Sensitive Leadership .  Due to time constraints, I will report on Elaine’s important presentation on HSPs & Complexes: Ours & Others in the next issue of this ezine…

If you are in the United Kingdom, you can hear Elaine’s talk about HSPs & Complexes: Ours & Others  via teleconference at the:

I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer….. It goes very fast here in Colorado … I am looking forward to my annual backpacking trip in August with my dearest friend and colleague:
 Erika Harris ( )
who is coming out to Colorado for what promises to be a very grand WomenOutdoors adventure! We will get plenty of time to discuss the books we are writing ~  The Bully Book  is hers, and mine ?  Well, I’m trusting the title will soon evolve. We’ll be sure to share what manifests from our time together!

Oh Be Joyful trail in Crested Butte, Colorado: photographer unknown

Oh Be Joyful !! Why Not?? 
This weekend I am off with my family for an extended five-day fourth of July weekend to one of the most beautiful places in Colorado ~ Crested Butte ! I love the name of this trail: Oh Be Joyful … and you can be certain I’ll be joyful while surrounded by an abudance of July wildflowers. As many of you know, I ~ like most HSPs ~ have always found much solace, wisdom and inspiration in nature.  I think most anyone can experience the same thing if they are open to it.  
    If you are so inclined, here is a simple, yet profound way to become intimate with nature…It’s called “Nature as Teacher and Healer.”  I hope you can find time to experience what nature might have to teach you and let me know what you find out.

Until the next newsletter …..or until I see you at the next HSP Gathering …
with love,
