Meetup for HSPs in BRIGHTON BN1 :)

If you live in Brighton, would like information on Sensory Processing Sensitivity and to meet Highly Sensitive People like yourself, do come along to this gently facilitated Meetup supported by the National Centre for High Sensitivity.

Ildiko Davis will be there to welcome you and to facilitate exploration of topics related to this trait.  This is an information rather than a therapy group, however, you may find the discussions have poignant moments. You are welcome to join in discussions, or just to listen or chat in the break if you prefer. Refreshments provided. If you have any questions about the Meetup, please contact Ildiko by email through this site or telephone[masked] 554. If you need information on other Events hosted by the National Centre for High Sensitivity, please call Barbara on[masked] 4854.

Early RSVP is advised as places will be limited.

    It was really lovely to see you all yesterday! I would be interested in some good calming meditation techniques if anyone could let me know? Look forward to seeing you all again!! :-)

      Hi Cathy, It can be easier to start with short meditations first (3mins.) and bit by bit to increase the time, as it gets easier to just be for that long. Focusing on your breathing can be helpful - gives something to your mind to do. Meditation would be just noticing your breathing as it is, or if your aim is to calm down, make sure that your breathing out is slightly longer than your breathing in. Counting can help in this - just find a comfortable pattern, eg. breathe in for 3 (or 1) and out 5(or 2). Another way could be to scan through your body with your attention, just noticing your toes, feet, legs, knees, etc. If you want to ease tension in your body, it can be helpful to tense areas up first (eg. clinch your fist) and then let it relax.

    We just had another lovely HSP Meetup :) With highly sensitive people coming from as far as London, it really seems important to have this opportunity for HSPs to meet and talk about our trait, especially for all those out there, who just discovered that they are not alone with this. Today we mainly talked about balancing our energy and stimulation levels and health issues particularly relevant to HSPs.
