This Meetup was started by a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) to help self-identified, adult HSPs in the Metro Vancouver area (and beyond if you’re willing to travel) to connect with one another. Although many of us are introverts, it is important for adult HSPs to meet with one another to share friendship as well as the challenges and joys of our trait and to just generally socialize with others of our ‘tribe’ as we negotiate our lives in a non-HSP world.
If you are reading this you probably have a good idea of what a Highly Sensitive Person is and likely are one. But if you’re not sure for this Meetup, “HSP” is based on the work of Elaine Aron in her groundbreaking book “The Highly Sensitive Person”. You can find more information about the HSP trait at her website: http://hsperson.com/ .
