What is the difference between having empathy and being an empath? "Having empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain," says Judith Orloff, MD. "But for empaths it goes much further. We actually feel others' emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in our own bodies, without the usual defenses that most people have." With The Empath's Survival Guide, Dr. Orloff offers a practical tool set to help sensitive people develop healthy coping mechanisms in our high-stimulus world-while fully embracing the empath's gifts of intuition, compassion, creativity, and spiritual connection. This practical, empowering, and loving book was created to support empaths and anyone who wants to develop their sensitivities to become more caring people in an often-insensitive world. It helps empaths through their unique challenges and gives loved ones a better understanding of the needs and gifts of the sensitive people in their lives. In this book Dr. Orloff offers crucial practices, including: . Self-assessment exercises to help you identify your empath type . Tools for protecting yourself from sensory overload, exhaustion, addictions, and compassion fatigue while replenishing your vital energy . Simple and effective strategies to stop absorbing stress and physical symptoms from others and protect yourself from narcissists and other energy vampires . How to find the right work and create relationships that nourish you . How 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 any sensitive person who's been told to "grow a thick skin," this paperback edition of The Empath's Survival Guide is an invaluable resource 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.
We perform ceremonies to mark important events and celebrate holidays-yet our modern approach to ceremony only scratches the surface of its true potential. With The Book of Ceremony, shamanic teacher Sandra Ingerman presents a rich and practical resource for creating ceremonies filled with joy, purpose, and magic. "We are hungry to connect with more than what we experience with our ordinary senses in the material world," writes Sandra. "By performing ceremonies, you will find yourself stepping into a beautiful and creative power you might never have imagined." Weaving shamanic teachings together with stories, examples, and guiding insights, The Book of Ceremony explores: . The elements of a powerful ceremony-including setting strong intentions, choosing your space, preparing ceremonial items, and dealing gracefully with the unexpected . Stepping into the sacred-key practices for leaving behind your everyday concerns and creating a space where magic can happen . Guidance for working alone, in community, and across distances with virtual ceremonies . Invoking spiritual allies-the power of working with the elements, the natural world, ancestor spirits, and the creative energy of the divine . Sacred transitions-including ceremonies for weddings, births, rites of passage to adulthood, funerals, honorable closure, and new beginnings . Ceremonies for energetic balance-healing and blessing, resolving sacred contracts, getting rid of limiting beliefs, creating Prayer Trees, and more . Life as a ceremony-how to infuse your entire life with ceremonial practice, from planting a garden to revitalizing your home or office to helping heal our planetThe Book of Ceremony is more than a "how-to" guide-it will inspire you to create original ceremonies tailored to your own needs and the needs of your community. When you invoke the sacred power of ceremony, you tap into one of the oldest and most effective tools for transforming both yourself and the world. As Sandra writes, "If you perform one powerful and successful ceremony for yourself, the principle of oneness ensures that all of life heals and evolves."
