Being a Highly Sensitive Person In A Pandemic - Jo Casey
business and mental health

What’s it like being a highly sensitive person in a pandemic?

My guest is today is Tracie Nichols – Rebel Crone, Mentor, Aromatherapist, and poet and all-round wise woman and we’re talking about, amongst other things, how we navigate these times as humans, and especially if you identify as a highly sensitive person (HSP)

HSPs tend to absorb a LOT of emotional energy from others and so in a time of great fear and grief like now, I know that I and many like me are struggling to balance the need to be present with the situation and feeling like we’re going to be washed away in the wave of emotions.

Tracie and I talk about:
  • What it means to be an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person)
  • Her work and business and what it means to be a rebel crone
  • How her work, creative and writing rhythms are being impacted by the current lockdown
  • How convening with nature is giving Tracie solace more than ever
  • What is giving her joy right now
You can find out more about Tracie by visiting her website, liking her facebook page and following her on Instagram. The book she mentions is: How Does Raven Know? Entering Sacred World | A Meditative Memoir And the blog post she refers to in this episode is Braced For Impact
