Wander and Delve – A New HSP Journal
As a specialist in working with gifted, creative, and highly sensitive people (HSPs), Dr. Lori L. Cangilla has developed the Singularly Sensitive approach to help people:
- Understand what it means to carry these labels and decide for oneself how to make choices that reflect those personality traits;
- Experiment with making small, manageable changes that reflect one’s true self;
- Build a Singularly Sensitive lifestyle that helps people embrace all parts of themselves and thrive.
Wander and Delve incorporates dozens of SensiStories, which are metaphors, analogies, therapeutic tales, and other linguistic outpourings that help you take a fresh look at yourself.

What results from a journal of this type is that you come away with a deeper sense of yourself, your desires, who you are as a person, how you can more thoughtfully approach and integrate difficulty into your life, and use all things to better define yourself in a way that provides wholeness and acceptance.
Overall wonderful new HSP Journey is a short book that offers real help for those committed to the process of change. With any amount of change comes acceptance and acknowledgment of one’s faults.
