Fall Greetings dear HSPs,
This will be a short issue of HSP Highlights and Insights because I am preparing for the sold-out 36th HSP Gathering Retreat fast approaching September 25-29, 2019 on beautiful Whidbey Island, in Clinton, Washington: the same place were at in 2005 for the sold-out 8th HSP Gathering Retreat !!
It is amazing to think I was 51 years of age when I first met Elaine Aron, and began my work with highly sensitive people and the HSP Gathering Retreats ! As a milestone birthday approaches for me, watch for a very special announcement – a gift from me which I hope will reach you in one way or another. Stay tuned for this, and also for information on the 2020 HSP Gathering Retreats.
I am looking forward to being back in the Pacific Northwest ~ that beautiful part of the country, thick with forest and ocean.
Here are four HSP events that are important for you to know about:
September 16, 2019 — The Sensitivity Summit. TIME SENSITIVE
