Legitimizing Your Gifted Needs with Karin Eglinton

This workshop in early May 2019 with InterGifted coach Karin Eglinton is all 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. … Read More

Resistance, Self-Sabotage & Breakthroughs on the Gifted Journey
