Introduction
I am the writer and webmaster for HSP Health, a website that promotes the self actualization of highly sensitive people. It includes a library about the highly sensitive trait, a blog, newsletter, ebook, and online classes. It covers:
  • the definition of a highly sensitive person, traits of the highly sensitive person as well as the introvert personality
  • stress as it relates to highly sensitive people
  • social stress including bullying and anxiety
  • relief of mental stress and depression
  • alternative health solutions including Ayurveda, energy medicine and herbal remedies
  • resources

As a highly sensitive person I have long been interested in health. I became interested in alternative health as a way to handle the stress challenges of high sensitivity. To that end,I practice Transcendental Meditation, follow Ayurveda as much as I can, and practice some yoga as well as NIA. I am interested in alternative healing methods, energy medicine and have become a reiki master/teacher. 

I am an artist; I create abstract oil paintings.

I am an avid reader about
  • evolutional psychology
  • the environment
  • simpler living
  • the current evolution of the human race, including human and animal rights
  • social media and the internet.  

I love animals and have rescued many and had as many as five rescue pets at once.  Once I stopped traffic on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston (where the Boston Marathon is held) to save a squirrel, who promptly bit me. I also have trained my cats to abstain from chasing and killing birds.  Seriously!  Yes, they look at me like I have lost it, but it is a small price to pay.

I watch little TV because I hate violent programming.  I listen to new age music, more than other kinds because it has a great quality of spaciousness that supports my creative efforts; I also find that I need nature in order to feel happy and grounded.

Yoga teaches us to learn to listen to ourselves so that we can make self supporting choices. Here is how it also teaches us how to eat and manage food.
