Priestly Advisors, Joseph the Dreamer & Books I'm Reading

Dear highly sensitive friends,

So much to tell you. But first, here's what's in this issue.

World News:

The Highly Sensitive Person has been published in Hebrew by Focus, so if you know anyone in Israel, be sure to let them know. (I have a few signed copies to sell in my Store.)

Some eager HSPs in Hungary have organized and bought the rights to The Highly Sensitive Person to translate and publish there.

In the store you will find for sale some copies of foreign translations. If I do not have copies, I've added links to the publishers who do.

In Canada, I was interviewed for this article on sensitive children in The Toronto Globe and Mail.

(The Globe and Mail also interviewed my husband and I about our research on love, for Valentine's Day. If you want to see a silly photo...)

In France, we HSPs have made it to the cineme. Les Emotifs Anonymes is about a romance in "a support group which actually exists to help highly sensitive people who have trouble dealing with their emotions. The director, Jean-Pierre Améris, admits he suffers from this himself. The odd title given to the French translation of the HSP book, Ces Gens Qui Ont Peur D'avoir Peur (The People Who Fear Having Fear) explains this a bit. Here's more of the review. It is not easy to find with English subtitles yet, but you can try the internet.

A Reminder about a March Course, Coming Up Fast

I will teach two courses this spring on The Undervalued Self. The first is March 18-20 at Kripalu in western Massachusetts (Lenox) with its woods, meadows, great food, and yoga for every level. The other is June 3-5 at Esalen in Big Sur, California, with its hot springs hanging over the Pacific, amazing gardens, redwoods, and unique atmosphere.

These are two of the only three appearances I plan for this year (plus the HSP Gathering in Southern California in the fall), and while they are not explicitly about being highly sensitive, I find that most of those attending are HSPs, sometimes finding out for the first time. (You who know yourselves can be very helpful to them.)

Unlike the original course for HSPs, these allow more time for all of us to interact during an intimate weekend of learning to link with others in a much deeper, more skillful way, and also to link with parts of yourself never contacted before. No one leaves in their undervalued self-state.

Upcoming HSP Gatherings:

  • East Coast: May 26-30, 2011
    Rolling Ridge Retreat Center, North Andover, MA
    (about 45 minutes north of Boston)
    www.RollingRidge.org
  • United Kingdom: July 21-25, 2011
    Gaunts House, Wimborne, Dorset, United Kingdom
    www.gauntshouse.com
  • Southern California: info to come

I will speak live at the Southern California gathering and by phone conference at East Coast and United Kingdom gatherings. For more details and to register, visit www.lifeworkshelp.com/hspgathering.htm

The Undervalued Self will not appear in paperback, alas, so if you were waiting for that, you may as well buy it now. If you have already read it and liked it, it would be nice if you could rate it or say something to that effect on Amazon. By the way, if you enter Amazon through Amnesty International, they receive a portion of the profits from the sales. Make it a "favorite."
