for coming home to our gifted selves through mindful connection & compassionate action
The Gifted Mindfulness Collective is an online mindfulness center dedicated to cultivating gifted development and freedom of authentic being through compassionate connection, contemplation and co-creation.
Guided by gifted coach, behavioral neuroscientist, and mindfulness teacher Kelly Pryde, we offer courses & workshops, community spaces and mentoring grounded in ancient wisdom, modern science and gifted experience. We center on giving voice to the gifted feminine and empowering gifted and twice-exceptional (2e) women to remember their inherent sovereignty and wholeness -- qualities that are never lost, only forgotten. Though our work is centered on gifted and 2e women, we engage with it always for the benefit of all beings.
At a time when the feminine is deeply called on for our global and spiritual transformation, 24 gifted and twice-exceptional women offer their voices on the experience of gifted mind-body-hearts 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.
