Happy Sensitive Community
Is this you?
You want people in your life who understand your sensitivity. People with whom you don’t have to defend yourself, explain yourself or feel weird for being highly sensitive
You may be or have been a member of other HSP groups, but you’re looking for something different.
You want to be part of a community that…
- …is positive without being fake
- …is compassionate, without being a “complain club”.
- …has depth and facilitates conversations that truly feed you.
You’re looking for:
- true connection, and new relationships that will take some time and energy to build, because you know these things matter deeply.
- ways to develop your ability to be more of yourself and honour your sensitivity more.
- some community structure above and beyond “how are y’all doin’?” You know it’s easiest to connect with others when you have something specific to do and discuss.
- opportunities to celebrate your successes with people who will celebrate with you.
The Happy Sensitive Community is much more than an online group or forum. We connect in 3 different ways, and you choose how you wish to participate:
1. Facebook Group
Our closed* Facebook Group is the online connection hub, notice board, and discussion springboard. This is where you’ll find the group materials, get my regular discussion prompts, be notified of meetup times and dates etc. and can chat 24/7 with your fellow community members.
*posts are only visible to other members in the group
2. Live Video Community Calls
In our monthly heart-to-heart call, we’ll meet for an hour to get to know each other in an online live settting. There is space for addressing questions, and space to bring in your own heart-wisdom. We connect over video if possible, so we can really meet face to face and get to know each other.
- Sundays at 7pm CEST (Amsterdam)/ 1pm EST (New York) (see times in your timezone here)
Calls take place using the free Biba app – you can connect over the internet (desktop or mobile) or call-in over the phone. (You’ll get download instructions when you join the community).
3. Virtual 1-on-1 Tea
Each month, there is the option to meet 1-on-1 with one other person in the group. You’ll be meeting up with a new person each month. This way, over time, you’ll get to know the other people in the group as much more than Facebook picture squares that magically produce text somehow (which, let’s face it, gets old and weird after a while).
You’ll get a new HSP discussion exercise each month to do together (so you don’t have to have awkward “what shall we talk about?” silences). Of course, you’re welcome to dump the exercise and just chat too!
The Community has Monthly Overarching Themes and Materials
A group of HSPs is the perfect setting to explore how you can be more of your sensitive self in your communication with others (both inside and outside of the group). Many of us “hold back and hide” in various ways, to avoid being judged or overwhelmed. Unfortunately, that also stifles our creativity, self-expression, and our ability to feel good in our own skin and get all our needs met.
Through the Facebook discussions prompts, things we do and discuss in the heart-to-heart calls and the partnering exercises provided, we’ll be addressing many different aspects that have to do with you being you no matter what. From being comfortable with anger, saying no and setting boundaries, to not “losing” yourself in big groups and getting a sense of how to do and organise things in a way that is in alignment with your sensitivity.
While all this doesn’t replace any of my courses or private coaching, it will be a helpful support and/or addition. I’ll be providing targeted exercises and materials (including a monthly podcast made exclusively for this community) and you can tag me in the facebook group with any questions you may have.
“Talking more openly here is definitely helping me to start doing this outside of the community too.” ~member
“I am so glad that everyone is here and so involved with the group (…) this group is a way of grounding for me. The things everyone shares help so much.” ~member
“I’m so relieved to get on this page and read that someone else is feeling just as I have or has spoken my thoughts/concerns beautifully. Even if I don’t have the energy to engage at that particular moment, someone is doing or saying something divine, and it helps a LOT! Thank you” ~member
What I want for you:
It is my wish that this community will provide you with the support and inspiration that will encourage you to express more and more of your authentic joyful sensitive self. Whether that be at home, at work, with friends, or in your projects or business.
It’s also my wish that this be a fun community. One for silly humor and deep inspirational discussion.
Lastly, it is my wish that over time, you’ll be able to look back and see that you made some true HSP friends here.
“Caroline’s community is priceless. The $20 or so invest every month leads to wonderful returns on my investment. First, the community is amazing. They are warm, gracious, conscientious and authentic. I have always walked through life feeling quirky odd and not quite belonging. Here I found my surrogate family. Second, the resources shared here are wonderful! Books, videos, freebies, even technology and business tools “preapproved” by others with similar tendencies and boundary challenges. Third, Caroline is simply the best. She allows herself to be vulnerable in a gentle way…clearly showing her knowledge but also beautiful authentic “humaness” so I don’t feel so alone in this strange world. And most importantly! This community is uber private! And this concept is repeated in written posts to all of our relief often as reassurance. I cannot say enough great things about this community. If you have taken Caroline’s courses and feel in need of reciprocal support, this is definitely the best place to be. It is magical.” ~ Sarah C., Hawaii
“I just joined this awesome community two weeks ago and already I’m feeling very much supported and in awe of the beautiful talents of members of this group! The virtual tea is a lovely way to connect too and I truly appreciate the podcasts Caroline has done even though I don’t usually listen to podcasts because I used to find them too long-winded. Thank you for creating this wonderful online community and your loving support!” ~B.

Questions you may have:
“How many people are in the group?” – a little over 20 people at the moment.
“I’m an empath and want to get more control over my abilities, is that what this group is about?” – Most people in the group are empaths. However, this group is not a place where you can get specific training on how to handle your abilities better. (Empath abilities are pretty complex. I believe you really need to get some full-on training when you want to stop feeling overwhelmed by everyone’s energy. Plus, if you are in a place of empath overwhelm, then you’ll probably experience similar overwhelm in the group sooner or later.)
Let’s put it like this. Imagine the difference between someone who knows how to drive a car, and someone who doesn’t. If you know how to drive, it can still be helpful to chat with other people about difficult traffic conditions, wet roads etc and what the best tires are. You can bond over your car driving experiences: swap stories, feel understood and glean some tips from others. However, if you don’t know how to drive, then discussions about these things won’t help you to actually get behind the wheel and pull out of a parking lot. Trying to do so from a written tidbit without someone sitting next to you also wouldn’t be very safe.
The community is not a place to learn how to drive your empath car, but it is a place to bond over your empath experiences and if you already know how to “drive” then talking to other people can give you some really valuable tips and tweaks.
“Do I need to be on Facebook to get something out of the community?”
Yes – all our communication, announcements, podcast links etc are shared through Facebook. However, if you’ve been avoiding Facebook for privacy reasons, know that we have a closed group: this means that only members can see what is posted in our group.
