Resistance, Self-Sabotage & Breakthroughs on the Gifted Journey
| |

Many gifted people live out patterns of resistance and self-sabotage in their self-development and in their relationships with others and with themselves.

Then he explores how we can make breakthroughs so that we can exit that loop.… Read More

Conversations on Gifted Trauma
| |

Listen in for a series of conversations on Gifted Trauma with InterGifted founder & director Jennifer Harvey Sallin and InterGifted coach Karin Eglinton. “Gifted trauma” is the trauma that gifted people can experience if they feel ridiculed, ignored, rejected, misunderstood, out-of-place, left out or left behind, pressured to conform, or excessively groomed or exploited as a result of their unusual minds. Gifted people’s experiences of other non-gifted specific traumas are also unique, as their extreme mental and often emotional intensity and complexity bring so many extra questions to the “unanswerable why” of trauma. We explore all this – and hope and healing – together from a personal development point of view.

In this article, InterGifted Coach Merlin Györy shares his own “positive gender disintegration” process with us as well as suggestions and insight for navigating our own.… Read More

This workshop is about taking inventory of and legitimizing your gifted needs. Since gifted people are often told that their standards are too high and unrealistic by others who don’t understand that gifted people have uncommon needs, this may lead them to deny or judge their own needs and try to live without getting them met. In addition to the material presented, there’s an emphasis on interaction and learning through each other’s experiences.
