It is easy to operate from assumptions but often they lead to mistakes. Living in the question lets us be open to new sources of information.

Are we afraid of humility? Does it suggest humiliation? Humility has an important connection with creativity and is worth being open to.

"Bad" is a very problematic word. Fixation on the "bad" is a habit left over from our ancient past when we problematized the unknown and unexplainable.

Basic Information
Washington, DC area, USA
I am the writer and webmaster for Sensitive Evolution, 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 and traits of the highly sensitive person
  • identity challenges of HSPs
  • stress of highly sensitive people
  • social challenges including marginalization, bullying and anxiety
  • alternative health solutions including Ayurveda, energy medicine and herbal remedies
  • resources

As a highly sensitive person I have long been interested in personal development and 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. 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.
