Hello and welcome to the growing Melbourne community of HSPs.
This is a Meet-up Group for those who identify themselves as a Highly Sensitive Person / HSP.
In the book "The Highly Sensitive Person" Dr. Elaine Aron defines a distinct personality trait that is inherited by only 15-20% of the population. The HSP has a sensitive nervous system, is aware of subtleties throughout their experience, and is more easily overwhelmed when in a highly stimulating environment. Your sight, hearing, touch, and sense of smell are not necessarily keener, but your brain processes information and reflects on it more deeply.
This is a truly special community. When HSPs get together, there is a sense of connectedness on a deeper level, a sense of belonging through meeting people who understand what it is like to feel and experience the world as you do.
We also have a private Facebook group where members can share their experiences, thoughts, and opinions regarding our rich inner lives.
PLEASE NOTE: If you RSVP to an event, but are no longer able to attend, the expectation in this group is that you update your RSVP to 'no' out of courtesy to the host, but also because as we often have waitlists of people wanting to come if you can't make it. If you have 3 no shows, you may be removed from the group. We endeavour to be understanding of where each person is at, so feel free to get in touch to let us know, but please make the effort to change your RSVP if you know you can't be there instead of just not showing up.
Certain events may require reservations and costs involved will be shared between attendants.
Please feel free to email me with any questions or suggestions.
