Realized Empath

Realized Empath

The Realized Empath podcast is a blend of psychology, science, and a sprinkling of mind-body-spirit to teach the empathic listener how to transcend unresolved trauma or other issues contributing to their struggle to set boundaries and move from overwhelm to empowered self-reliance. Empaths will learn practical strategies and exercises to strengthen their self-trust and self-reliance, shield themselves from unwanted energy, and move from victim to self-agency. So tune in, join in, share with friends - but most of all - feel seen, heard, inspired, and empowered about your deeply empathic self.

However, if a label has us looking outside ourselves in fear and blame, it isn't serving us.
