Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness, and Nutrition with open minds and hearts awaken to our best Highly Sensitive selves.
What is the Highly Sensitive Healing Circle?
A compassionate and brave community where Highly Sensitive People (HSP) learn, heal, and embrace positive change.
Do any of these resonate with you?
I have trouble sleeping, racing thoughts, or I struggle to focus.
I fear rejection and I procrastinate on important things.
I'm stressed, anxious, and overwhelmed by the state of the world.
I'm easily overwhelmed by my everyday environment.
I suffer emotional and physical effects of stress and anxiety.
I struggle to manage my emotions in healthy and productive ways.
I'm easily agitated, frustrated, and moody and it’s affecting my home and work relationships.
I struggle to establish boundaries and practice self-compassion.
“Today I have the power to change my story.”
Why was this community created?
As HSPs the frequent emotional exhaustion and overwhelm we experience can take over our lives before we realize what’s happening. The longer we go without caring for ourselves the harder it can be to pull ourselves out of unhealthy habits.
In this space we can escape the trappings of social media and focus on our unique needs as we renew, replenish, and reset our physical, emotional, and mental health.
What's inside the circle?
Yoga for Every Body
Social media would have us believe that the physical practice of Yoga is something attainable only for an elite few. This couldn't be further from the truth! Yoga asana is accessible and beneficial at any age, for any body type.
The practice of Yoga has so much more to offer us as HSPs than the physical! Together we'll explore the endless benefits of adding Yoga to our Highly Sensitive Lives.
Mindfulness is the practice of purposely focusing our attention on the present moment—and accepting it without judgment. But this takes daily practice and dedication to put our mental health first!
Together we'll learn how to embrace our High Sensitivity through awareness of our thoughts, feelings, and sensations and all the ways we can use mindfulness to manage the daily challenges we face as HSPs.
Sugar, caffeine, processed foods... we're surrounded by convenience that's supposed to make our lives easier. But much of what's out there just adds another layer of stress to our already overloaded nervous systems. The more stress we experience the more nutrients we use and require. Healthy eating doesn't have to be hard or expensive!
Everyone is welcome no matter your diet! Just be open to adding more plants! 😉
We're building a genuine community of people who want to be their best Highly Sensitive selves and who want to make a commitment to supporting one another through the joys and struggles of living as an HSP.
Together we'll support the constant growth and progress of ourselves, each other and our world.
This community is for you if... ❤
You're ready to embrace your High Sensitivity without judgement.
Your mind and heart are open to learning and healing with others in a nurturing environment.
You're ready to do the work to cultivate inner joy through consistency and compassionate guidance.
You believe that self-care and self-compassion are not indulgent narcissistic practices but they are essential to our overall health and well-being.
You want to embrace your High Sensitivity to show up authentically in all areas of your life.
You want to support, uplift, and encourage your fellow HSPs to be their best selves.
You are open and willing to listen to many perspectives from all walks of life and to learn from their experiences.
You believe that real positive change is possible!
This community isn't for you if... 💔
You're looking for short cuts and quick fixes to life as an HSP.
You have expectations for overnight results without genuine commitment to making lasting changes.
You feel it's impossible to make time in your life for self-care and self-transformation.
You don't believe in, or are not open to learning, non-western views of healing, spirituality, and life in general.
You don't believe in inclusivity and that everyone must be treated equally with kindness and respect.
You're just not in a space in your life right now to invest in and challenge yourself and do the work needed to make positive change.
“Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end.”
What is a healing circle?
It is a safe haven where we work together as a community to remove the obstacles we face as Highly Sensitive People using holistic teachings, philosophies, and practices.
A brave space where we lift each other up and celebrate the joys and challenges of our High Sensitivity.
Talking circles, peacemaking circles, or healing circles, as they are variously called, are deeply rooted in the traditional practices of indigenous people.
Healing circles are often called hocokah in the Lakota language, which means a sacred circle and is also the word for altar. They consists of people who sit together and are committed to helping one another to heal.
Still not sure if you're a Highly Sensitive Person?
HSPs process sensory input more deeply than others and tend to be more empathetic and thoughtful overall. But we're also easily overstimulated and require frequent respites of peace and quiet.
Come on into the Healing Circle to learn more about High Sensitivity and how it may be affecting you!
If your story is anything like mine you were told countless times growing up that you were too sensitive, too emotional, and too intense. I was taught by my family, teachers and many of my peers that there was something wrong with me because I reacted strongly to many of the things that were happening around me and to me.
It took many years for me to acknowledge the pain I carry from how I grew up, to embrace my Highly Sensitive trait and to begin my journey of emotional and physical healing. Embracing Yoga and holistic living and the healing introspection and self-discovery they offer has infinitely improved my self-worth, relationships, my perspective of our world and my place in it.
I have a diverse background including an MA in Humanities studies, CCA Life Coach certification as well as certifications in Holistic Nutrition and health coaching, RYT 500 Yoga teacher training, Yoga for all shapes, sizes, and abilities, Yoga for Mental Health, and Laughter Yoga.
