Alane Freund on being a Highly Sensitive Person in uncertain times.

By Julie Cusmariu – September 17, 2020


Listen to Alane Freund, for the 2nd time on the podcast, help us navigate these uncertain times, back to school season and living with uncertainty, so that we can manage, normalize and honour our sensitivity and even thrive.

Listen for Alane’s wonderful insight, candor, support, experience and of course sensitivity. A lot was covered including what having this trait of high sensitivity looks like in people, how you can manage your exquisite, finely tuned nervous system, emotional leadership, the critical importance of boundaries, taking retreat and how to do that when circumstances/resources are limited, creative ways you can create a village of support (even in a pandemic), self-care and how you can transform your sensitivity into your superpower.

Alane Freund is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, an international consultant on high sensitivity (who works closely with Elaine Aaron, author of The Highly Sensitive Person and The Highly Sensitive Child), an equine assisted psychotherapist and a phenomenal person to have a conversation with.
