We facilitators hold a vision of future HSP meetings of various types taking place in various locations around the Denver metro area. This group was founded in the spirit of a collaborative culture, so please share your ideas for engaging.

We are passionate about creating a supportive HSP community as defined by the research of Elaine Aron (hsperson.com). Coming together and sharing our experiences and knowledge with each other can help us to understand and feel compassion for our unique HSP challenges. We also deeply honor the strengths and gifts that only HSPs can bring to the world.

And so everyone’s presence is valuable, because each person’s unique perspective potentially yields more flexibility, ingenuity and sensitivity as encouragement and support to others.

You are always welcome at our meetings, where we all treat each other with kindness and respect. There is no pressure to speak or interact at meetings. You are welcome to come and listen, and participate as you wish. It’s important that you feel safe and comfortable at meetings, so please do what you need to do to take good care of yourself, including leaving whenever you want.

We are not a therapy group. Please consider a caution from Elaine Aron herself:

“Some people, HSP’s included, are not ready for a non-therapy group… If you are depressed, distressed, or have absolutely nowhere else to turn at this time, it’s best not to join a non-therapy group. Instead you should seek professional help. But it’s alright to join a group because you think it would be useful for your own purposes – otherwise, why bother? It’s just that once in the group, you have to balance your needs equally with others, as in a family.” (excerpt from The Highly Sensitive Person’s Workbook)

We are very much looking forward to getting to know each of you, learning about your lives and experiences, and seeing how we all intersect-- because there’s no doubt that we do! Welcome!
