As I launch my new project focusing on the idea that the expression of the gap caused by asynchronous development in gifted people is NOT synonymous with mental illness, I’ll be sharing resources here. If you have resources to add, please get in touch.
Embracing Intensity – Have you ever felt like you’re “too much?” Too intense? Too consumed by whatever life has in store, that you cannot ever feel fulfilled? Aurora Remember Holtzman has news: you are not too much. Perhaps you simply haven’t embraced your naturally excitable self? In “Embracing Intensity,” Aurora will take everything you think you know about what it means to be intense and excitable, and show you how intensity is not a weakness but a hidden power. Each week, Aurora will interview a gifted, creative, and outside-the-box thinker who embodies what it means to embrace intensity in order to show you how to embrace your life in its fullest. Listen to unlock ways to unleash your inner fire— without getting burned!
The Neurodiversity Podcast – The Neurodiversity Podcast (formerly Mind Matters) features discussions with leaders in the fields of psychology, education, and beyond, with a focus on the needs and issues of neurodivergent kids and adults. The Neurodiversity Podcast explores parenting, counseling techniques, and best practices for enriching the lives of this unique population.
Conversations on Gifted Trauma – Listen in for a podcast series of Conversations on Gifted Trauma with InterGifted founding director Jennifer Harvey Sallin and InterGifted coach & community leader Karin Eglinton. “Gifted trauma” is the trauma that gifted people can experience if they feel ridiculed, ignored, rejected, misunderstood, out-of-place, left out or left behind, pressured to conform, or excessively groomed or exploited as a result of their unusual minds. Gifted people’s experiences of other non-gifted specific traumas are also unique, as their extreme mental and often emotional intensity and complexity bring so many extra questions to the “unanswerable why” of trauma. We explore all this – and hope and healing – together from a personal development point of view.
Eggshell Transformations Podcast – Eggshell Transformations is a podcast dedicated to people who are exceptionally intense, sensitive, and intuitive. In this podcast, we talk to healers, survivors, artists and experts from around the world. We will learn how to bounce back from trauma and shame; how to cultivate resilience and authenticity; how to be the most creative and productive we can be, and how to find our tribe. Together, we go from healing to thriving.
Third Factor Publication – Third Factor Magazine offers thought-provoking content that helps the creative, the quirky, and the gifted understand themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, and their paths to growth. We strive to inspire and empower these intense souls to live their best lives and make their unique contributions to their communities and the world.

Your Rainforest Mind – Because the label “gifted” is often controversial and confusing, I developed the analogy of the rainforest mind. Many very smart folks don’t identify themselves as gifted. If the analogy speaks to you, I hope that my blog posts will help you better understand the complexities of your creative, sensitive, passionate, and smart self. And that my ideas will help you live like the thriving rainforest– in balance, peace, grace, and beauty, and in support of all beings on the planet.
