Nurturing the Numinous - Mentoring and Support Day
Sun, 17 Sep 2017 09:00

This is a support day for those who are, or are well on the way to being, HSP role-models and who already have responsibilities or an interest in the development of highly sensitive people. If you have known about the trait of high sensitivity for some time, have read about it and are on a conscious path to authentic HSP living, then this day is about you. It is about support for you as an individual, through group discussion and experience.


Topics that will likely surface over the series of day-events will include:

•  What it means to be a role-model, ethics of learning while leading at the same time. 

• The relationship between self-care and your work. Maintaining compassion for self in a non-HSP dominated world.


• Balancing earning in vocational work with the messages we receive about success. 

• Examining your support network of like-minded colleagues, friends or family. 


• The role of empowered HSPs in society.


•  Other topics that may arise from your pre-event comments or as the day goes on.

There will be two or three of these events each year to join if you wish, so that you can progress your development as a role-model, hopefully with known others who are with you on the same path.

I look forward to spending a whole day with you, exploring what matters to you, supporting your dreams and intentions and above all, enjoying that special energy that surrounds us in a room full of sensitive people :)

Please bring a packed lunch :)


NB: Please do not attend if you want to receive a stack of documents, a certificate, or are thinking of this as a substitute for academic training. Whilst there is a lot to learn here, this day is about you. You need to attend with your personal head in the foreground and professional head in the background, even though the day will likely have a very positive effect on your professional path. You will find out why this is important by the end of the day.

HSP Rest and Recovery Retreat - £225 (£60 deposit)
Fri, 13 Oct 2017 17:30

Two gentle nights for HSPs seeking to be actively encouraged to sleep, rest, relax, laugh, recover and enjoy quiet time with other sensitive people.  Breakfast and Lunch as and when you please, then dinner all together each evening, taking turns to cook. 

Two nights in total. Arrive on Friday[masked]pm, leave by 12 on Sunday. 

THE ACCOMMODATION


Our rest space is located in an area of natural beauty.  The area is fabulous for walking, wildlife watching or simply relaxing. 

THE SUPPORT

• Reminders and full permission to sleep/nap, walk, meditate, snack and generally meet your restful needs.


• Opportunity to book 1-1 time with Barbara to deepen your understanding of your rest and relaxation needs (included in cost of weekend).


• Encouragement to engage with other HSPs where appropriate on topics or activities that will enhance your stay, visits to local beaches and places of interest.


• Relaxation group and meditation time if requested.


• Full permission to 'do nothing and rest afterwards'.


• Small dog provided for cuddles or walks.

GUIDELINES

• You must be in a good enough emotional place to be able to offer as well as receive support and to be a good companion (even if you are a quiet companion).

• You should at the very least have read Dr Elaine Aron's book 'The Highly Sensitive Person' and attended HSP Meetups or something similar before attending.

• You need to be able to meet your own needs and organise your own activities where appropriate.

• Be prepared to share a bedroom with one other person and follow the rule that there is no talking in bedrooms unless the person sharing with you makes it clear they would like this.  Some people will be in bed during the daytime to get some quiet time, to read or to calm themselves - do respect this.  If someone is asleep, try not to wake them.

• Bring earphones so that you can enjoy music etc quietly in the same room.  Bring ear plugs if you are sensitive to noise, also bring anything with you that makes you more comfortable (hot water bottle, special blanket or pillow, guitar, art supplies, books).

Price of £225 includes shared accommodation for two nights and Barbara's special support and guidance in the background throughout the weekend. Bring food or share the shopping as we go.  Lift-sharing is encouraged (use the comments box to link up).  Please pay a non-refundable deposit of £60 to book your place.  The remainder of the fee is due a month before the retreat.
