remembering our gifted selves home through mindful connection
The Gifted Mindfulness Collective is a virtual mindfulness centre dedicated to supporting gifted people on the path to wholeness and authenticity in our changing world. Grounded in spiritual wisdom traditions, systems science and gifted psychology, we remember the truth and authority of our own inner experience and strengthen our capacities of attention, groundedness, and compassion. Through like-minded and like-hearted connection, we deepen the richness of our experience, as well as the courage to use our gifts in life-sustaining ways.
The call to remember the inherent truth & wholeness of our complex being has never been more clear.
At a time when the feminine is deeply called on for our global and spiritual transformation, 24 gifted & twice-exceptional women offer their voices on their experiences living in patriarchal, normative systems. More than 35 entries including essays, poetry, artwork and resources are shared following a year-long community contemplation on the gifted feminine. Emergence will resonate with gifted readers longing for a deeper, richer experience and expression of their authentic selves.

Emergence fills a crucial gap in literature about giftedness, and that is the embodied, intuitive, non-linear experiences of gifted women. . . . Reading [it] is like having a sisterhood of complex, like-minded friends who are redefining what it means to be gifted by sharing vulnerably about their journeys.

Article: Befriending Our Gifted Minds
In this article written for the Advanced Development Journal, GMC founder, Kelly Pryde shares her journey in discovering the transformative power of mindfulness for supporting the inner experience of giftedness. Buddhist & modern psychology, along with the experiences of other gifted adults, are woven throughout.
GMC approaches to meditation & contemplative practice have been cultivated over many years of working with gifted and twice-exceptional adults. Our two core frameworks: LACE & FLOW are grounded in Buddhist & spiritual wisdom traditions, systems science, deep ecology and the intensity and complexity of gifted experience. Woven together, these approaches enable us to skillfully support our inner experience, decolonize our minds-bodies-hearts, and (re)connect with our unique being, others, and life itself in the deep, meaningful ways we long for.
