HIGHLY SENSITIVE PEOPLE
Saturday 05/10/2019 3.00PM - 4.30PM
Are you a Highly Sensitive Person? Do you pick up on subtleties that others are unaware of and are highly empathic? Do you get affected by environmental and sensory stimuli and need to withdraw on a regular basis? If you do, this workshop is for you.
One in five people are born with the trait of high sensitivity. But the general lack of awareness and appreciation of sensitivity in our society leaves so many HSPs struggling physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually with being highly sensitive in a non-sensitive world. This talk, which includes refreshments and book signing, offers practical strategies to manage certain aspects of the trait and to help HSPs live more effectively, whilst still embracing and sharing their unique gifts. These strategies include:
- Learning how to protect your energy
- The importance of grounding
- Coping with over-arousal
- Using EFT (‘tapping’) to deal with overwhelm and to optimise emotional health.
