This group is to help support, and empower people who know about the highly sensitive trait, as described in Elaine Aron's book The Highly Sensitive Person. It is also for people who are just finding out about this trait and, others that do not know there is a term that can describe, how they have felt their entire life. Have you been called moody, shy, too or too sensitive? Perhaps people have told you, you take things way too personally. A good place to start if you do not know how if you might be highly sensitive is to take the test here: http://www.hsperson.com/pages/test.htm We will meet once a month in Oakland on Grand Ave. Each month I we will discuss a theme that is pertinent to things HSP's handle in their lives. This is not a sensitive person vs non-sensitive group or us versus them kind of support group. My desire for our meetup is that people will value and empower themselves as HSP's and have a good time hanging out with other sensitive souls.
