 Managing and understanding a sensitive, empathic, empathetic nature is an important topic, especially in stressful, overstimulating times. It’s useful to know that those who identify as a sensitive person with empathetic sensibilities can be people who often hide behind a wall, must restore in nature or alone, overdo for others (in the hopes that the chaos will quiet) or burn out easily.  Here are two opportunities, led by an excellent guide, to share in discussion and experience hands-on learning about the mechanics of being a sensitive person, with empathetic sensibilities.

Sponge or Empath? 

How To Consciously Evolve Your Sensitivities

with Signe Myers Hovem, Spiritual Counselor,

ITA Energy Practitioner and Writer

Wednesday, October 23

6:30 – 8:00pm 

$35 pay at the door with advance reservation; $45 without reservation


Are you sensitive? Are you empathetic? Empathic? An empath? Do you know the difference? For many empathic persons the world is confusing because there is such a lack of definition and understanding of what it means to be empathic/empath.

This introduction to empathic reception will help attendees discern where they may be on the spectrum of being empathic, empathetic, or both. What is the difference, and how does self-care differ for different sensitivities? How can we broaden our identity and comfortably hold this part of our authentic self without sacrificing other aspects of who we are? This class will offer the opportunity to share in discussion and experience hands-on learning about the mechanics of being an empath.

Please join Signe as she demystifies this natural sensory reception.

 Empathic to Empath:

A Path of Transformation

Saturday, October 26

$125      1 – 5:00pm

No one is born an empath. In this afternoon workshop you will learn the differences between having empathic traits and sensitivities and actually having the skills and abilities of an empath. If you identify as a sensitive person, with empathetic sensibilities, you could also be empathic, which would broaden your environmental sensitivities.  

This presentation will outline the arc of transformation that most empaths undertake when they begin to be self-aware and master their non-ordinary sensory receptivity. We will explore, we will use discussion, writing and guided meditation to understand more deeply your own path on this spectrum.  If you sense that you have empathic sensitivities and would like guidance and context to understand your own authentic nature; or if you consider yourself an empath and want further understanding of this expression of service, please join Signe.
