January 18-19, Centrum de Linde, Bilthoven (near Utrecht), Netherlands. Empowerment and Self Care for the Highly Sensitive Person. With Annet de Zwart and Tom Falkenstein, both of whom I trained a bit in 2018. Annet is a coach with years of experience with HSPs, and remember, Tom is the author of the new book on highly sensitive men, so this is a great time to meet him in person. The first day they will explore “the challenges and joys” of being an HSP. “In an intimate small-group setting, participants will learn about overstimulation and dealing with the strong feelings that accompany it.” The second day focuses on empowerment and self-care. Goal? Provide you with concrete tools and techniques to better deal with the challenges” and “provide a safe space for sharing.” To register contact Annet de Zwart: firstname.lastname@example.org or Tom Falkenstein: email@example.com. Space is very limited so contact them soon.
