The 36th HSP Gathering Retreat – Sept 25-29, 2019, Whidbey Island, Clinton, Washington

What will I learn at an HSP Gathering Retreat™ ?

I am asked this question over and over, and

Truthfully, there is no easy answer because what each person gains from this unique four night, five day experience is unique to each individual:  what they bring to the Gathering; how open they are to receiving from others; and where they are on their unique journey as a highly sensitive person. 

Here are a few comments from past participants in 2018:

“I was truly touched, Jacquelyn, by how much of yourself you gave to us. Your personal experiences, educational knowledge, therapeutic knowledge, advice, history, your heart ~ that you truly cared for each one of us and our experience was profound. It was jam packed both with education and therapeutic modalities to learn and know how to take care of ourselves.”

Advanced Training in HSP Research

From Dr. Elaine Aron’s website:
“The HSP Gathering Retreats (started in 2001) are a unique opportunity to gather with other HSPs to discover, explore, and celebrate your unique HSP trait. You will leave with greater scientific understanding of the trait, new tools for empowerment, as well as a deeper sense of being seen, heard, and validated as an HSP so that you can begin to live more authentically and confidently. The HSP Gathering Retreats have been life changing for many. I am a guest speaker, usually via an online conference, and I highly recommend them.”

To Register, go here:
The HSP Gathering Retreats are limited to 30 people.  We currently have 21 registered. 🙂

Just for fun ~

      any affordable, in nature, retreat centers with healthy food, and a variety lodging accommodations ?
      I am working on a way to make the HSP Gathering Retreats more accessible to more HSPs , both nationally and
