What is the difference between having empathy and being an empath?
According to Dr. Judith Orloff, author of The Empath's Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People, having empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain. But, for empaths, it goes much further. You actually feel others’ emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in your own body, without the usual defenses that most people have.
The book is an invaluable resource for empaths and anyone who wants to nurture their empathy and develop coping skills in our high-stimulus world, while fully embracing their gifts of intuition, compassion, creativity, and spiritual connection.
Dr. Orloff joins host Lisa Davis to share information from the book, as well as discuss the ways empaths can find peace with their "power."
