Although 15-20% of the population have the innate trait of High Sensitivity, HSPs often feel misunderstood and lonely for feeling so deeply and being easily overwhelmed. Being able to share with others who "get you" is incredibly healing.
Here are a few clues:
You think deeply and need ample time to make decisions.
You would describe yourself as an emotional person; you feel both positive and negative experiences deeply.
You notice subtleties that others often miss (changes in your environment, social cues,etc).
Your senses are easily overwhelmed (bright lights, loud noises, itchy fabrics, etc)
Take the HSP Self-Test developed by Dr. Elaine Aron to be sure.
In this 8-week Group, you will gain support from a small community of other Highly Sensitive people while you explore different facets of your life as an HSP through the use of guided exercises, mindfulness tools, personal reflection and open dialogue.
