This is a local and regional discussion group and "contact point" for the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) in the Denver area, and around the state of Colorado.
The main purpose of the list is to explore the ins and outs of being a Highly Sensitive Person, and to support each other as HSPs. The secondary purpose is to help HSPs in the area interact, make contacts, form support groups and make friends. The list is modeled after hspbook, a large international discussion group that's also a part of the YahooGroups network.
Why a LOCAL group? The idea was born out of the extremely positive experiences HSPs have reported after participating in the periodic HSP Gatherings around the US and overseas. However, for every HSP who goes to a Gathering, there are 50 who just wish they knew some HSPs "in their area." In addition, many are reluctant to face the cost and potential overwhelm that goes with traveling across the country to an HSP Gathering. The answer, thus, is local groups for HSPs.
This is NOT a "personals" or "dating" list-- however, we do hope you'll make some new friends in your area, and if sufficient numbers of members show enough interest, it may be possible to arrange local HSP get-togethers.
Although it is highly recommended that you have some familiarity with Elaine Aron's books "The Highly Sensitive Person," "The Highly Sensitive Person in Love," or "The Highly Sensitive Child," that is by no means a requirement for membership.
The list is moderated to help maintain an "HSP-safe" environment. Flaming, trolling, proselytizing or advertising will not be tolerated and will result in the posting member being banned. However, open discussions are invited and welcomed.
In addition to our discussion group here, we also have our own informational web site and blog, which we invite you to visit!
