Banyen's Description: 

With The Empath’s Survival Guide, intuitive psychiatrist Judith Orloff offers a resource 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.

Having empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain. 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.

This practical, empowering 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 also helps their loved ones better understand the needs and gifts of the sensitive people in their lives.

Dr. Orloff offers some crucial practices:

  • 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 “suck it up” or “grow a thick skin,” here 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.

“Reading Judith’s book is like having a very savvy sister who teaches you the insider skills of how to deal with this perplexing and amazing talent of extreme sensitivity… This book is packed with practical hints for embracing sensitivity and turning it into a gift.” —Lorin Roche, author of The Radiance Sutras

Among Judith Orloff’s other books are Emotional Freedom and The Power of Surrender.
