Empath School
The Purple Door offers classes to expand the empathic sense, the extra sensory perception of feelings and emotions. We are naturally empathic...at varying degrees of sensitivity to the energies of people, places and things. These signals are processed through the mind-body and displayed as body sensations (headache, stomach ache, etc.) or emotions (overwhelment, anxiety, compassion, love). Knowledge is power...Once the mind-body connection is understood, the stress of the emotional/body response can be managed and alleviated. Classes such as the Introduction to Evidential Psychic-Medium Studies, You are an Empath, and discussion groups can provide a path forward to engaging this particular sense.
