How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You
July 21-23, 2017
Friday-Sunday, 2 nights
CE Credits available
Plus 2 nights all-inclusive accommodations priced separately below.
Do you have a keen imagination, rich inner life, and vivid dreams? Is time alone each day as essential as air? Do others call you too shy or overly sensitive? Are you a clinician who works with HSPs?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be a highly sensitive person, or HSP—twenty percent of us are. It is a valuable trait: many great artists and thinkers are HSPs, and HSPs are generally highly conscientious and intuitive. There are also drawbacks: an HSP is easily overstimulated and more affected by a troubled past and present stressors.
Elaine N. Aron, PhD, author of five books, including The Highly Sensitive Person, has been conducting and publishing scientific research on this subject for more than 20 years. During this rare opportunity to spend time with Elaine, you will learn:
John Hughes, a corporate leadership consultant, will join Elaine and share his experience of being an HSP in the corporate world and the advantages HSPs bring to the workplace.
Rich in wisdom, this weekend is also restful, and the retreat environment is structured exclusively with HSPs in mind.
Elaine N. Aron is a clinical and research psychologist, author, and pioneer in the field of high sensitivity.
She has published five books, including The Highly Sensitive Person, which has been translated into more than 17 languages, and The Highly Sensitive Parent, as well as numerous scientific articles in leading journals. She also created The Highly Sensitive Person’s Workbook and shares extensive resources on her website to help people identify the HSP trait in themselves and nurture the new, positive self-image they deserve for a fuller, richer life.
Elaine leads workshops for professionals and the public, practices psychotherapy in Marin County, California, and collaborates with her husband Arthur Aron in studies on the psychology of love and close relationships. Her degrees are from University of California Berkeley, York University, and Pacifica Graduate Institute.
A documentary, Sensitive, the Untold Story, featuring Elaine and her work was released in 2015.
