What we're about

This group is for highly sensitive people that are also very interested in exploring consciousness and eclectic spirituality. It is for highly sensitive people that are depth oriented, wanting deeper connections within and with other people. I've been a seeker for my entire life and have found many wonderful people, experiences and much healing along the path. I want to share these with you. I want to form a group that connects HSPs who share a similar path.

The group will “offer a way to feel more at home in oneself and in one’s environment, and at the same time, to develop the gifts of sensitivity, emotional depth and insight. … (To) show how these gifts can be entranceways into both the everyday world of shared human connection and the most subtle, spiritual dimension of our being.”- Judith Blackstone, Belonging Here: A Guide for the Spiritually Sensitive Person

Why might you be interested in this group?

You have felt some sense:

of being out of sync with the ordinary world, some sense of not truly belonging here

of being too impinged upon by sensory stimuli

of feeling unbearable empathy for the suffering of other people

of having no filter against the hypocrisy and brutality of the world around you

of not being able to truly connect with others or to find your true place in life

Our group and practices together will help you:

Become more resilient to sensory stimuli

Be more grounded and authentic

Feel content with life without losing your compassion for the suffering around you

Accept yourself and the world as it is.

Some of you were able to participate in my 6 weeks of Daily Practices for HSPs during our shelter in place. During these sessions I introduced the main three practices from Judith’s work. In this group, I will continue to teach those practices, as well as others. I want us each to develop our capacity to hold our own depth and be present in the world in a satisfying way.

I was planning to wait to begin when we can meet in person again, but now see that that whole question of when to meet in person is complex, and the answers not known. So let’s begin on line and switch to in person as that feels like a safe and responsible thing to do.

I am charging a fee in order to help compensate me for my work, as well as to encourage more engaged members. The group will meet twice each month.

I hope you will join us if this resonates with you. After you join the group you will have 30 days to participate and see if the group is a good fit for you before needing to pay the monthly fee.

Love and light,

Mary Kay

“Although sensitivity may cause discomfort, it is an entranceway into life’s spiritual dimension. Sensitive people sometimes try to make themselves more solid or dense, or to shut themselves off from the onslaught of stimuli in their daily lives. However, the cure for this discomfort is actually to become more sensitive and open. As you continue to develop your sensitivity, your consciousness can become so refined that it is finally the luminous transparency of fundamental consciousness, pervading the material world. When this happens, stimuli can move through this dimension of consciousness without disturbing it. As fundamental consciousness, you remain steady and open while the movement of life flows through you. This means that you can continue to become even more subtly attuned to life without being overwhelmed by the world around you.

Attunement to fundamental consciousness also helps you tolerate stimuli in your environment because it requires you to inhabit your body. When you live within your body, you have a felt sense of internal depth and wholeness. You can also feel the qualities of your being, such as your love, understanding, and power. This is an experience of actually existing, and of possessing yourself from the inside. This internal depth, wholeness, and quality of being cannot be broken. Stimuli move through it without altering it.

As your senses become refined—as you reach the subtle range of your senses—they also become unified. The vibrational nature of reality that is revealed with your subtle senses is seen/heard/touched/smelled/tasted all at once. Finally, as you realize yourself as fundamental consciousness, you have a single, direct experience of each moment. All sensory stimuli seem to emerge directly out of the pervasive empty space of your consciousness, without any effort on your part. This produces the feeling of immediacy or “nowness” that is associated with spiritual experience.” – Judith Blackstone from Belonging Here

Note about the HSP trait:

For those of you not familiar with HSP, it refers to highly sensitive person. or a person having the high sensitive trait. In the research literature this trait is called sensory processing sensitivity. We, as HSP's, experience and process the world differently than 80% of the population. We have sensitive nervous systems which take in more information and process information more thoroughly. Wondering if you are highly sensitive? Take this self test ( http://hsperson.com/pages/test.htm ), researched and validated by Elaine Aron, the founding mother of the HSP trait. Or read this overview of the trait: "Highly Sensitive People, Bet You Know One" ( http://www.bewellworld.com/article.cgi?id=Psychotherapy_3301 )Or watch the new documentary "Sensitive: The Untold Story" ($4.99 to rent, $9.99 to purchase): HERE.

Attunement to Fundamental Consciousness

Online event

We will meet. We will do the Attunement to Fundamental Consciousness Practice. We'll check in with each other. If there is time, we will explore one of the HSP dilemmas presented during our sharing, and do practice exercises to help overcome that dilemma. We'll close with a meditation.

Last year I completed a class with Judith Blackstone, called the Realization Process, Healing Ground, https://realizationprocess.org/healing-ground/. In this class I learned many practices which I want to teach to you through this group. I experience these practices as a very deep way for us to strengthen our sensitivity and become more resilient as HSPs. I have been looking for ways to deeply support HSPs for a very long time, so I am excited to have found this work.

Here is a quote from Judith's book that fully explains the goals I have in mind for us in this group. If these goals resonate with you, this may be just the right group for you:
