There is a powerful connection between your emotions, intuition, and empathy. Join psychiatrist and empath Judith Orloff and learn to use these gifts wisely without becoming overloaded or drained.
In a welcoming and supportive community, we explore what it means to be an empath, or highly sensitive person, and learn practical skills to:
- Recognize what blocks your empathy and intuition
- Tell the difference between intuition and fear
- Use strategies to prevent sensory overload
- Avoid emotional hangovers and compassion fatigue
- Stop absorbing the stress of others
- Combat narcissists and other energy vampires
- Express your empathic needs in relationships
- Heal with intuition and empathy
- Read the body language of others
- Use oracle cards to receive intuitive guidance
As we fine-tune how to nurture these sensitivities while staying grounded, we become a model of how to be sensitive, heart-centered, and strong—characteristics that are necessary for changing our own lives and having a positive influence in the world.
All are welcome, including those who wish to use these tools in clinical practice to help clients achieve greater health and wellness.
