Sponge or Empath:
Consciously Evolving your Sensitivities
We have all had encounters when an interaction with someone or some place has left a feeling of being drained, or off-balance; and for some sensitive people, these encounters are often intense and limit their willingness to interact with the world around them. “Sponge” is a term for people who unknowingly, or unwittingly, absorb other people’s moods or feelings, often to the detriment of themselves. Subsequently, sponge people develop a perception that social and public interaction comes at an expense to their own wellbeing and to survive they must protect themselves.
As a Spiritual Counselor, a fair amount of the initial work I do with clients is to assist them in setting healthy boundaries as they release limiting defense strategies. In the not so distant past, “sponge people” were presented as sensitive people who needed to protect themselves from their environment.
The stance of protection or defense typically represents a perception of fear at work. Today, however, empaths are frequently told that these sensitivities are gifts and a special power, framed as a consolation to sensitive persons struggling with their environment.
I take a different approach. Empathic sensitivity is an awareness and a skill that can be developed and integrated into a person’s sensory perception and intuition.
Please join me for an opportunity to discuss and demystify the ills of sponge people and expand upon the reality of their spiritual counterparts—empaths.
Empathic to Empath:
A Path of Transformation
No one is born an empath. Signe presents the differences between having empathic traits and sensitivities and actually having the skills and abilities of an empath. 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. 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 this four-hour self-exploration workshop.
Tools of Discernment
Tools of Discernment: Guidance and Communication
Each of us has an inner wisdom that is connected to our intuition and highest good—it is readily available to serve us in making decisions and supporting our actions. Discovering that channel of guidance, however, takes a willingness to listen and a confidence to trust. How do you communicate in your everyday relationships and with yourself?
This course reveals key components to cultivating a healthy communication channel: awareness of one’s intentions and motivations. The presentation will offer an overview of different traditional divination tools as well as plenty of hands-on experientials to enrich each person’s path towards recognizing and integrating wisdom and integrity.
Journaling to your Center
Journaling is a therapeutic tool with intention to reveal oneself on the page. In this presentation, I put forth the benefits of journaling as a practice of building self-awareness and healing limited perceptions. Writing, in general, offers a grounding effect and a new perspective from a distance. Prompts will be provided, as well as introduction to automatic writing.
Creative Expression Groups
These groups are created to support each individual by being part of a group. Support, spontaneity, trust, vulnerability, play, exploration, curiosity, courage, whimsy, and many other elements are created by a group intentionally supporting each other’s creative expression. It’s a beautiful thing.
Writer’s Block Workshop: Healing the Writer Within
Do you enjoy writing but find yourself struggling against some internal resistance? Or while writing, even in the privacy of your own journal, find that you are censoring yourself in some manner? This course is designed to explore what is blocking one’s expressive self. Writer’s Block has little to do with writing and a lot to do with one’s internal programming and negative associations to expression—particularly self-expression. Course typically runs once a week for six weeks.
