of “Rise: The Extraordinary Journey of the Exceptionally and Profoundly Gifted.” Profound giftedness is a way of experiencing, perceiving, thinking and creating that is fundamentally different from a more typical human experience. In this hour-long film, we examine the lives of 12 exceptionally and profoundly gifted children, teens and young adults. Stirring testimony from parents, teachers and administrators flesh out this one of a kind documentary. Produced in 2013-2014, Rise participants are from diverse social backgrounds and variant life experiences. Their unique attributes, idiosyncratic meant processing, complex motivational patterns and powerful, unrelenting drive to create and learn are showcased here in family, school and community settings. Created and moderated by Sue Jackson of The Daimon Institute for the Highly Gifted, and including several other professionals in education, neurosciences and psychology. Topics discussed include the roles and the how to’s of education, talent support, play and rigor in the overall development of the PG person, the need for informed differential diagnosis for any mental health difficulty, their inner lives and explanation and application of the Integral Practice for the Gifted. The documentary will be followed by participant discussion and include a handout summarizing key learning outcomes.
