Understanding our SensitivityUnderstanding Our Sensitivity

A Workshop with Rufus May and Elisabeth Svanholmer

Tue 17 June 2014

Friends House, 60 Lowther Ave


Sensitivity means the ability sense things, such as sights, sounds, other peoples feelings and energies. When we are highly sensitive we notice things others don’t and we are more strongly affected by things. This doesn’t have to be a problem we just need to learn to look after this ability. Some people who are highly sensitive may be told they are mentally ill, looking at them as highly sensitive is another way of approaching things.

The workshop hopes to look at:

  • identifying our particular sensitivities
  • rethinking vulnerability and discovering its strengths and possibilities
  • ways to look after our sensitivity and  overwhelm
  • links between sensitivity, hearing voices, and other powerful experiences
  • ways to navigate insensitive situations
