Empath Mastery

Empath Mastery: Sacred Tools for Highly Sensitive Healers

A 9-Week Course for Healers (and anyone else) Ready to Claim Their Boundaries, Alchemize their Shadows, and Harness the Power of Their Empathic Gifts

April 4th, 2018 – June 6th, 2018

We are each designed with specific gifts to offer the world; but unfortunately, none of us come with operating manuals. For those of us who want to make a difference our lives become an epic quest to know, honor, and claim our particular way of belonging to the world. For empaths the learning curve can be steep.

Empaths are exquisitely sensitive and their highly-refined nervous systems are designed to be able to conduct powerful energies—such as love, gratitude, compassion, and fierce grace. But unfortunately, they rarely get the opportunity to because most of the time empaths are too bogged down by personal and collective pain.

Empaths have a hard time distinguishing between what is theirs and what isn’t. They tend to carry others’ suffering, feel overwhelmed, have difficulty in relationships and in groups, dissociate from their bodies, and isolate or numb to manage the pain. This can make for a seriously challenging life!

Boundaries are an essential first step for empaths in coming into mastery, but many empaths mistake walls for boundaries, staying stuck in a loop of protection, and running fear-based neural patterns that actually increase their suffering.

If you are an empath and are ready to learn foundational somatic, energetic, and soul-centered practices to help you release suffering and master your gifts, then I invite you to join me in this deep-dive training.

Who am I and why am I teaching this work?

My name is Sweigh Emily Spilkin, and I’m an empath ;). I’m also a highly-skilled somatic psychotherapist with a PhD in Clinical Psychology and thousands and thousands of hours of training as a trauma therapist, energy healer, and soul guide. For the past 11 years I’ve been leading highly-experiential somatic and soul-centered trainings for therapists and healers on how to work with trauma, how to facilitate ritual, and how to know, claim, and embody their sacred purpose.

Although all of the trainings I offer are different, they each share a core mission: to help healers trust themselves and bring their gifts to the world. And the majority of healers that I work with are empaths.

Like many of you, I’ve had my own trial-by-fire initiations (four years of chronic illness, chronic pain, emotional and energetic permeability, and spiritual crisis to name a few). And, like many of you, I learned the hard way how not to run my energy. In addition, over the years I’ve gotten to know hundreds of empaths, have studied their systems, and have become highly attuned to what works and what doesn’t. (And, of course, I am constantly still learning! I do not consider mastery a finish line but a developmental path of continual evolution.)

So what makes this training unique?

What makes this particular training unique is that, like me, it’s a mix of grounded and woo-woo. This work is rooted in psychology, neurobiology, and spirituality.

Over the course of 9 weeks you will learn about the neurobiology of being an empath (and how to shift out of “empathic distress” and into true compassion), how to know what’s yours and what isn’t, energetic boundaries (and why “shielding” doesn’t work), somatic practices for embodiment and energetic sovereignty (how to stay in your body and take up your own space), and how to keep your energy field clear.

You’ll also do your own “empath shadow work” —transforming the vows, identity patterns, and unconscious agreements that are keeping you stuck. And your “empath light work”—learning how to partner with the Divine to ignite your light and activate your empathic gifts.

There’s a lot of content in this course. And a lot of magic.

Who this Course is For: 

You, if You:

– Consider yourself an empath

– Have a strong desire to refine and master your energy

– Feel overwhelmed by other people’s energy or have difficulty in groups

– Find yourself taking emotions and energy from your clients, friends, partners, and loved ones and don’t know how not to

– Are extra sensitive during tragic world events

– Are a new healer who wants to understand your empathic nature and set yourself up for success so that you don’t take on your clients’ energy

– Or a highly-skilled healer who wants to refine their self-care practices to avoid burnout

– Don’t necessarily consider yourself a healer, but are definitely an empath and care about serving this planet and humanity

– Have tried some energetic practices for empaths but find that they aren’t quite enough

– Are resistant to the term “empath” because of the victim dynamics often associated with it

– Are committed to looking at your own shadow

– Are hungry to discover and embody your empathic gifts (examples of empathic gifts include an exquisite capacity to track the collective, a highly-honed “bullshit detector,” powerful truth-telling skills, high-octane intuition, emotional alchemy, the ability to root out shadow and radiate light, and the ability to help others heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually)

– Are ready to do deep, high-level, transformational work

What You Will Receive:

– A greater understanding of how your empathic gifts work

– Tools to help you stay in your body, regulate your nervous system, and stay connected to your own center in the face of others’ energy

Q: What if I can’t make any of calls?
A: No problem. Every call will be recorded, and the course is designed so that you can listen to the recordings at a time that is convenient for you.

Q: What if I can’t make the Q and A sessions?
A: That’s ok too :). Again, these will be recorded. If you have questions you want answered but can’t make a Q and A session, you can submit them to Sweigh in advance and she will answer them live on the calls.

Q: I’m not that technologically savvy, how will the calls work?
A: We’ll be using a platform called “Zoom” for our calls. Zoom is extremely user-friendly and super easy to use (all you need is a link to get started and a computer, tablet, or phone). We will also be sending out a tutorial to make it extra simple. And if you need additional support, the Program Coordinator, Alyssa, will be happy to help.

Q: I don’t consider myself a healer, is this course for me?
A: This course is applicable to all empaths, even those who don’t consider themselves healers. If you’ve read over the “Who this Course is for” section above, and resonate with at least 3 of the bullet points, chances are it’s a good fit.

Q: I’m an advanced practitioner, will this course be too basic for me?
A: The course is designed for beginners and advanced students alike. The material is deep, and in some ways, quite advanced, but the course is designed so that both those new to all things empath and those who have been around the block a few times will get a lot out of it.

Q: I’m a newbie to the empath world, will this course be too advanced for me?
A: Hopefully not! The course is designed for beginners and advanced students alike. It’s designed so that each week builds upon the next. The first few weeks will present foundational material that will provide the building blocks for the rest of the course. There will also be ample time to get your questions answered both at the end of each Weekly session and during the Q and A’s.

Q: I’m not a fan of Facebook, do I have to join the Facebook Group?
A: Absolutely not. The Facebook forum is completely optional.
