Highly Sensitive Refuge

About Us

Andre and Jenn, founders of Highly Sensitive Refuge

Our Mission

To change the way the world sees, and talks about, highly sensitive people (HSPs). There’s nothing wrong with being an HSP — in fact, it’s a strength.

We are the voices of Highly Sensitive Refuge, a community where HSPs can be themselves, take a break from the harshness of the world, and feel understood. Our founders are Jenn Granneman and Andre Sólo.

Join our Facebook group for highly sensitive people to connect with other HSPs around the world.

Today, she believes that her sensitivity is her greatest strength.

About Andre Sólo

Andre Sólo is an author, adventurer, and philosopher. Growing up, he convinced himself he was not sensitive at all — that wasn’t something a growing young man was “supposed” to be! As an adult, he realized he was suppressing an important part of himself, the part that not only made him an idealistic dreamer but a keen observer of human nature as well. Since then, he has become an advocate for HSPs, and has spent years working with artists, spiritual seekers, and other sensitive people. His writing has appeared on Forbes, Psychology Today, The Huffington Post, The Muse, and Introvert, Dear. As a fiction author, he creates beautiful dream worlds, and his novella Lúnasa Days has been called “a masterpiece of magical realism.” Andre writes about high sensitivity because he’s seen firsthand the challenges — and gifts — this trait can bestow.
