12 Strategies for Life as an Empath


One hour webinar & one hour discussion. Two doctors reveal what it is like to be an empath and give 12 practical strategies to overcome the challenges and liberate the gifts. Pam is a psychiatrist. Emma was licensed as a psychotherapist. Both speak openly about their personal experiences as well as the strategies they have used.


Pam and Emma each identify with being an empath. They share personally what that has been like for them, including their effective strategies to overcome the challenges of being an empath.  They want  to empower  those who have not yet learned how to harness their gifts and work successfully with the challenges of being an empath.  The world needs empaths now who can be actively engaged, happy, and able to be actively engaged with the world.

Participants will learn what the trait is,  how this trait impacts children as well as how it impacts  adults and professionals in the field of mental health and wellness. You will hear stories that reveal what others have been through, e.g. emotional crises, spiritual emergencies, isolation from family and friends–even chronic pain and mental “illness”. Practical suggestions about how to manage life successfully as an empath can help you fully manifest your gifts to benefit both yourself and  others.

In Addition: A One hour LIVE, online discussion with all participants will create a safe space to go into more depth: Ask questions, get responses from Pam and Emma, share and dialogue with others in the group.  This will be recorded and posted in the course lessons for those who cannot make the live discussion.

1 review for 12 Strategies for Life as an Empath

  1. admin (store manager)

    “This video conversation is full of important information for people who are empathic. It is my first introduction to empathic people and thinking about people and interactions this way. With regard to inner and outer world, it makes sense to me in a fashion which is organic and true. Most traditional types of help I have received from well meaning professionals have always left me knowing and feeling that they are only partially addressing my needs. I have had to tolerate questions about myself when not fitting into their paradigms and models. Lucky for me I have had a high tolerance for these doubts / questions and a strong connection to my empathic side.” –a recent participant
