Are you someone who seems to absorb the physical or emotional energy of those around you?
Do you know what’s happening to other people before they tell you?  
Are you quickly overwhelmed by noise and confusion?
Do others tell you that you are “too sensitive”? 
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this is the program you’ve been searching for.

This practical, empowering, and supportive weekend is designed to guide empaths and highly sensitive people through their unique challenges and help loved ones better understand their needs and gifts. You will gain valuable resources for nurturing your empathy and developing coping skills in our high-stimulus world, while fully embracing your gifts of intuition, compassion, creativity, and spiritual connection. With gentle guidance and genuine compassion from our experienced instructors, you will learn to develop physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance on every level. A group hypnosis session is also included, to help you reach deeply into your subconscious mind to access wisdom from your Higher Self.

Gain simple, effective strategies to stop absorbing stress and physical symptoms from others and to protect yourself from narcissists and other energy vampires. You will also experience:

  • Exercises to help you identify your empath type and where you are on the empathy and sensitivity spectrum
  • Tools for protecting yourself from sensory overload, exhaustion, addictions, and compassion fatigue while replenishing your vital energy
  • Ways to raise your energetic vibration to protect yourself from being influenced by other people’s energies
  • How to find the right work that feeds you and best matches your special gifts
  • Ways to navigate intimate relationships without feeling overwhelmed
  • Guidance for parenting and raising empathic children
  • Awakening the empath’s gift of intuition and deepening your spiritual connection to all living beings

“For being a ‘sensitive’ and capable of the interpretations of the emotions of others is not easy…”
Edgar Cayce reading 1406-1

Restore your balance and find your center!

For any sensitive person who’s been told to “grow a thick skin,” here is a lifelong guide for staying fully open while building resilience, exploring your gifts of depth and compassion, and feeling welcome and valued by a world that desperately needs what you have to offer.

What is the difference between having empathy and being an empath?  When you have empathy it means your heart goes out to another person in joy or pain. But for empaths it’s more than that — you actually feel the emotions, energy, and physical symptoms of others in your own body, without the usual boundaries that most people have.
