“Beyond the Veil” Episode 5: “Don’t Be Afraid to Seek Help”

When our Muggle lives get overwhelming, it’s nice to turn to Harry Potter for something that feels safe and familiar. In our interview with Sacha Huynen, we discuss her experience of the world with high sensitivity, how she uses the Potter series for comfort, and the wonderful community she found in her quidditch team. You can listen to this episode down below or on our podcast page.

On Episode 4, we discuss…



→What is high sensitivity, and how can it impact your life?

→Finding a lifelong friend in Harry Potter

→Managing stress and feeling overwhelmed in the Gryffindor Common Room

→Immersing yourself in the world of Harry Potter through Muggle quidditch

Potter’s impact on our activist impulses

→The warmth and acceptance you can find in communities based around the Potter series

→This week’s Whisper: finding validation through Harry’s story during an abusive childhood
