If we want to be healthy, growing and happy, what do we need to consider in order to take proper care of ourselves as highly sensitive people? Suitable for all HSPs, from those new to the trait, to those who are already discovering the path to HSP well-being.

Topics covered can include the following (depending on how the group wish to use the time on the day). All topics covered will be through the lens of the high sensitivity trait:

Factual basis of high sensitivity trait
Home and work environment
Illness and medication
Emotional well-being and nervous system balancing
Healthy habits vs toxic habits

Bring a packed lunch. We have a kitchen if you need to warm anything through :)

NB: there are two concessionary places available on this workshop, please enquire.
