Are You an Empath?
With Steve Wilson and Bety Comerford
Have you spent your life feeling everyone's emotions? Have you been bombarded with every thought, every feeling from those around you and from the world itself? Are you ready to scream? You are not crazy; you are an empath. This interactive workshop will help you understand what it means to be an empath, why you feel what you feel, and how to share the wonderful opportunities the gift of empathy offers you to heal yourself, those around you, and the world. You will learn to discern the truth when people's words do not match their emotions, to use fearlessness to protect yourself, and to tap into the vibrational energy of love. You will also learn how energy works and how it can be used for healing, accessing the past, present, and future, manifesting responsibly, and much more. If you suspect you are an empath or know someone who may be struggling with that gift, this workshop is definitely for you.
Bety Comerford and Steve Wilson are both shamanic healers and empaths who have helped many people understand their empathic gifts and heal those parts of themselves that keep them from living a fulfilling life. They are the authors of The Reluctant Empath, The Empath's Quest: Finding your Destiny and The Empathic Ghost Hunter (to be released later by this year by Schiffer Publishing).
