Tend and Befriend your Highly Sensitive Self

Rochana Felde

Are you, your clients, or someone you know a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)? HSP refers to a scientifically studied personality trait, also known as Sensory Processing Sensitivity, that affects 20% of the population, including animals! The main characteristics are Depth of Processing, Sensitive to Subtleties/Sensory Stimuli, Emotional Responsiveness/Empathy, and Overstimulation. In this presentation, I’ll take you on a journey through the eyes of a very sensitive HSP (me!), so you can recognize and honor this neurodivergent trait as a superpower rather than a disorder, in yourself and others. You’ll learn how flower essences are a primary therapy for many HSPs, as part of a holistic toolbox to manage nervous system overstimulation.

Healthy Boundaries for Empaths

Carla Savetsky

Many healers that are drawn to flower essences are empaths and highly sensitive people. While these traits come with many gifts, there are also interpersonal challenges that we share, including porous and weak boundaries. Come to this talk to learn strategies and tools (including flower essences) to firm up your boundaries and take care of yourself first.

Building Healthy Boundaries

Kathleen Aspenns

Healthy and functional boundaries are essential to health and well being. This talk will help you identify where your boundaries may not be working well for you, and introduce you to a way of thinking about boundaries based on insights from Chinese Medicine. You will learn flower essences and acupressure points to help you feel safer and more grounded in your body, manage challenging emotions and relationships, and clearly hear the voice of your intuitive knowing.

Sensitives as Leaders in the Greater Journey of ReMembering

Ruth Toledo Altschuler

Is it possible that we, Sensitive Individuals, ultimately have been saved by our early connection with Nature? Do you recognize this early affinity with plants, animals, nature places, and feel this may have saved your sanity amidst difficult times? Why are we sensitives more prone to becoming traumatized, and more prone to being impacted by Developmental Trauma? What is Developmental Trauma and how can it be treated and transformed? Maybe this very sensitivity can now be perceived as one of our greatest sources of strength. As we recognize ourselves as Agents of ReIntegration, how can we step more fully into our Purpose?
