Book Review: Making Work Work for the Highly Sensitive Person

Posted November 1, 2016

making-work-work-for-the-hsp_In preparing for the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) workshops in July and September, I did lots of reading on how highly sensitive individuals can survive and thrive in our Western culture. In particular, I was drawn to this book. I have been in “Drudgery” jobs and liked how Barrie was able to aptly explain the career transition from Drudgery to Craft and them to Calling. Since I am now in a career that unleashes my passion, I know that I have found my Calling. She emphasizes how HSPs are drawn to nature and this is a place where our “inner seedlings” can grow into our Calling. Expanding on the book, I believe that our Calling can change as we grow. If you are in a career transition or an HSP who would like to learn more about how to move towards your calling and passion, this might be the book to pick up soon.
