It's spring. Time for new growth. In this issue you can grow by learning more about depression in A Few "Happy" Things Regarding Depression.
You can sprout new smiles by reading A Love Letter to Highly Sensitive Men.
You can follow the blossoming of a book that should help HSPs a great deal, by reading The Story behind The Undervalued Self.
Plus, you can plant The Undervalued Self on your bookshelf for free. All you have to do is intend to read it quickly and to tell others about it IF you think it would help them (all on the honor system), and then be among the first 50 to respond to this offer. [Offer expired]
[NOTE: We've filled the 50 spots for free books, and those to receive a free book will be notified by end of day March 5.]
The idea is, as publishers say, to "build excitement" about the book. I’d be satisfied simply to build some good impressions of it as helpful, and I know HSPs are going to give it some thought and make a fair evaluation of its usefulness.
Finally, you can grow by going some places as spring is arriving.
Are you free next weekend?
I would be very glad to see any of you March 5 through 7 at wholesome, peaceful Kripalu in the hills of Western Massachusetts. That's when I teach a course about healing the undervalued self. This will be the first time I teach it, and maybe second to last! (After Esalen in May.) The group should be small - the book is not even out until March 10. If the weather is bad, we'll be warm and cozy inside, eating fantastic healthy food and working on healing some of the damage done to HSPs by our being made to feel something was wrong with us all those years. Go here to learn more and sign up. (Click on the title of the program to register.)
As always, there are HSP Gatherings planned for this year in three varied, delightful locales. (I will be speaking at Walker Creek ranch in person and by telephone at the others.)

On the west coast, our chance to meet and consider The Undervalued Self will be May 21 through 23. If you know Esalen, there's no need for me to mention how the place nestles against the cliffs of Big Sur, its back to a great wilderness and its classrooms, cabins, and hot-spring baths dangling over the crashing surf. Read more and register here.
I hope by summer we all feel satisfied with our growth.
