It’s time to shatter the myth that being sensitive is a weakness and celebrate the power of a deeper, more tuned-in mind.

A ground-breaking look at the power of sensitivity to transform our relationships, career and life, from world-leading experts

Do you have a heightened sense of empathy? Do you often notice tiny details that others don’t? Do you ever feel overwhelmed in a busy, loud environment?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, chances are you’re a ‘highly sensitive person’, along with one fifth of the population.

Highly sensitive people exemplify our most humane traits. They embody not just emotional sensitivity – qualities like empathy, kindness, and concern for strangers – but physical sensitivity too, processing all information very deeply.

Our modern loud and harsh world wasn’t built for highly sensitive people, but their unique strengths make them inspiring leaders, careful decision-makers and natural-born artists.

In this livestream event, you will learn how to unlock your potential as a sensitive person, with tools to succeed in education, work, life and love. Based on more than twenty years of research in neuroscience, psychology, and human genetics, this is a ground-breaking exploration of the new science of sensitivity.

Praise for Andre Sólo and Jenn Granneman’s Sensitive:

‘This important book reframes the way we think about sensitivity-our own or someone else’s-and shines a light on the great power in being highly attuned to the world’ – Susan Cain, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet and Quiet
