Awareness & Skills for Empaths and Highly-Sensitive People

A highly sensitive person (HSP) experiences the world differently than others. Due to a biological difference that they’re born with, highly sensitive people are more aware of subtleties and process information deeply. This means they tend to be creative, insightful, and empathetic, but it also means they’re more prone than others to stress and overwhelm.  — excerpt from Highly Sensitive Refuge

Are You an Empath or HSP?

Are you wondering if you are an empath or a highly sensitive person (HSP)? If you can relate to many of the signs below you are likely one or both:

  • You frequently feel emotionally exhausted

  • You sense and feel other people’s emotions as your own

  • You are perceptive and conscientious

  • You naturally care for others

  • You often feel overwhelmed

  • Conflict and violence are very difficult for you

  • You are sensitive to your environment

  • You are exhausted when around a lot of people and need alone time to recharge after being in a social setting

  • You absorb and take on others energy (including emotions and stress)

  • You regularly think about being free to live exactly as you feel to, free of others’ opinions, needs, or demands.

  • As an adult, you feel as though you have "turned off" your emotions – sometimes you don’t know what you are feeling and wonder if you can truly connect with life or relationships deeply.

  • You often hold things inside to not upset others. You want to make sure everyone's comfortable.

  • You notice you are irritable around people who express a lot of emotion and though you know you care, deep down, you may sometimes feel like you swing back and forth from being a really nice guy to being a jerk

Do you sometimes feel like being an empath or an HSP is more of a burden than a gift? 


Do you frequently feel emotionally exhausted and know you are affected by other people and their worries and cares?

Let's turn it around

In reality, your natural empath or HSP characteristic is a gift when you know how to work with it. During this workshop, we will:


  • Learn about energy gifts and what makes the gift of empathy stand out. 

  • Discuss why your relationships, health, cognitive abilities, emotions, and spirituality are affected by your gift.

  • Experience simple ways to manage, regulate, and balance your energy through meditations, visualizations, and breathwork.

  • Receive more in your life, balancing the scales of giving and receiving. 


Please join us for a hands-on and interactive 3.5 hour class led by Deborah Wells, where we will learn more about what it means to be an empath and practice tools to manage, regulate, and balance the energy overwhelm that is so common with highly sensitive people. 

*You will also receive information to take with you and use in your own daily practice.
