What's Blooming: Travel, Spirituality & "What about All those Websites?"

Dear fellow highly sensitive people,

Warm weather, flowers... Here's what's blooming in this issue.

A Reminder about a June Course, Coming Up Fast

In June, the 3rd through the 5th, I will teach The Undervalued Self at Esalen in Big Sur, California. It's SO beautiful, and it's where the "human potential," “self-actualization" movement began, with Fritz Perls, Abraham Maslow, and so many others. If you have never been there, and especially if you like ocean vistas (or hot springs hanging over the Pacific, amazing gardens, redwoods, organic food, and interesting characters), you really must consider going once to Esalen.

I don't speak in public very much, but I like this place and Kripalu, so this is my only "public appearance" until the HSP Gathering in Santa Barbara this fall. While this course is not explicitly about being highly sensitive, the vast majority of attendees have been or found out they were while there. It's a subject that really matters to us.

Unlike my courses designed to teach about sensitivity, this one is more experiential and focused around linking with others in a much deeper, more skillful way, and linking with parts of yourself never contacted before. (We also look at where people are having trouble with power or ranking.) No one leaves in their undervalued self-state.

One HSP told me that she was afraid she'd be one of hundreds at the Kripalu weekend. No, HSPs do not rush off to every weekend seminar they hear about, even by Elaine Aron, and that's fine for me. So far only 8 have signed up, which will make it much more personal if we do not grow too much by June. The average has been 25.

Sign up to receive notice of new blog posts at the Psychology Today site, if you wish, by following the link at the bottom of your Comfort Zone, which will always be at the bottom of your newsletter. (You can unsubscribe there too.) An interesting conversation occurred there around "The Wound with No Name."

World News--the The Highly Sensitive Person became the best-selling book in Israel for at least three weeks according Haaretz (I think something like the NY Times), based on sales by the largest book seller in the country.

Also, The Undervalued Self has sold 20,000 copies in Korea. I'm so happy that I have given Koreans something they could use so well.
