Highly Sensitive: Embracing the Gifts and Challenges

For Yourself, Your Clients, or Your Children

High sensitivity brings many wonderful strengths and can also lead to overwhelm, overstimulation, anxiety and other challenges. Many children and adults who are highly sensitive have spent their lifetimes feeling “different," alone or misunderstood. Understanding and embracing this trait is profoundly healing for our clients, our children, and ourselves.  This program will explore practical strategies for navigating both the challenges and gifts of high sensitivity.

“What I have learned from GISC has allowed me to create a more open and transparent company… so as our brand continues to grow in the marketplace, our organization can grow with that same mission, values, and beliefs… we walk the talk. Companies that can pull this off, I think, have a much better and healthier life and increased opportunity for success.”

"More than any organization I have been connected to, I am regularly reminded of GISC’s commitment not just to providing professional and personal development, but to changing peoples lives, and to making the world a better place."

"It’s rare to find a place and a group
of people where you can think and be. With so much pressure to do, to be active and productive, the respite provided by GISC is invaluable. The opportunity to reflect, recharge, and retool means that when I return to the world of doing I’m much more effective. I’m equipped at my core so that my actions are informed, not by a mechanical knowing but by a deeper understanding of myself, other people, and the world around me."

“I purposely travelled to GISC from
the UK because I sensed that the distance and the separation from my ‘home ground’ would facilitate and allow freedom of thought and expression. And this proved to be the case. The GISC facility, in its beautiful natural surroundings, provided a sense of peace and security whilst also suggesting creativity and challenge. The course facilitators were skilled and attentive giving time both to the group and to the participants individually.”

“The program I participated in at the Center has changed me. I am a different and better person. I am more effective at what I do and I have greater impact on the people around me. Because of the experiential nature, I cannot forget this program, it has become part of who I am.”
