Mission Statement
The mission of The Enlightened Empath Training is to help empaths explore, accept, and embrace their unique sensitivity in the context of spiritual ascension and grounded enlightened living.

Dear Fellow Empath,

You’ve had quite a challenge this lifetime….you know you are not like everyone else, you know a lot more than you can say, and you’ve suffered quietly and deeply for a long time. I am an empath so I know firsthand the struggle to maintain firm boundaries, clear thoughts and feelings, and good physical health. 

I worked so hard for so long just to keep my sensitivities in check. If I let myself be fully empathic, life became too overwhelming and exhausting. People were annoyed by my “issues”. I couldn’t stand up for myself.  I had been dismissed as “too sensitive” so often that it seemed natural to dismiss myself. So I tiptoed and hid, creating a false personality just to please others. At one point I got tired of all the hiding and fear of rejection and said I don’t care what anyone thinks. I’m an empath and I will embrace who I am and finally get to know my true self. 

I discovered that the qualities that define an empath are the same qualities as the mystic. They both see beyond the surface of life, seek truth and oneness with a passion, and greet life every day with an open heart. This is why this training is called The Enlightened Empath.

Entering this lifetime as an empath means you were born to take the mystic’s journey on the path to enlightenment. You have all the qualities that make a great mystic and lover of life. It’s time to take yourself seriously and accept that you have all the makings of a seeker of light, truth, and joy.

I created The Enlightened Empath program to help empaths find joy and purpose in life. When you don’t have a clear sense of self it’s challenging to know your purpose and follow a plan for success.
In The Enlightened Empath Training, you will learn how to shape and channel your telepathic, intuitive, and creative abilities to create a life that is magical, mystical and grounded. You’ll become a skilled empath instead of a victim of your sensitivities.

You are invited to register for this comprehensive and spiritually evolved empath training. Please read further to see if this training is for you!

Most sincerely,
Sarah Weiss, founder of The Enlightened Empath Training


This is an immersive program that will help you attain these objectives in one year. The class support along with inspirational guidance and energy attunements inspires surprising growth and transformation. It’s truly amazing how a group of empaths can generate an environment of spiritual light and healing for each other. When you find your “tribe” you finally blossom into the evolved being you are meant to be.

The objectives are to:
1. Stand in your power and wisdom.
2. Purify and heal the wounds of the past.
3. Learn to establish firm boundaries.
4. Develop confidence and self-compassion.
5. Improve health and well-being through grounded embodiment.
6. Create positive relationships.
7. Establish an inner sanctuary to purify and replenish.
8. Find joy and purpose in life.
9. Learn to trust your intuition.

Because of this class and my practice of grounding and aligning with Mother Earth and Father Sun, I no longer view myself as weak or weird, I now understand that my sensitivities are a gift and a means to access my higher consciousness and the best way to affect change in the world. Through this class, I’ve learned how to use my body as a doorway into my deeper consciousness which lies beneath my changing emotions and my thinking. –DW

Keep reading. I hope you’ll be inspired and excited to be an empath by the bottom of this page!

Enrollment in this class qualifies as a pre-requisite for The Enlightened Empath retreat.

Finding Comfort and Ease Through Mystical Mastery

When an empath feels out of place and misunderstood, unable to navigate the predominately left brain rational world, they may find comfort and ease in the realm of the mystic.

Initiates of mystical traditions seek to develop the sensitivities to the unseen that the empath possesses from birth. The training of the mystic is unique because it originates in an “energy first” model. The initiate goes through training to purify the body, mind, and emotions to facilitate clear spiritual vision and discernment in the context of a spiritual lineage that bestows benevolent energies in the form of blessings, healings, and transmissions. It is never expected that the initiate could attain the ascension frequencies without the aid of the unseen masters and their higher being.

As I mentioned in my letter to you, you are invited to register for this comprehensive and spiritually evolved empath training. This is not a “packaged training”, it is very energetically and spiritually dynamic. The group that gathers each year always calls forth a bountiful down-pouring spiritual light and guidance. In addition to this training there is the Advanced Empath Training if you wish to continue your growth a second year as well as individual coaching for empaths and an annual Enlightened Empath retreat in Silver City, NM.

Empaths are Gaining Recognition and Appreciation

With each successive year, it seems that empaths are gaining the recognition and appreciation they deserve. You need to understand that you are not defective, you are supremely telepathic, able to sense the unseen with every cell, thought, and feeling.  Communication is so much more refined and multi-dimensional when our telepathic abilities are trained to focus on the light of being and informed by our heart. Humanity is evolving towards more empathy, transparency, love, and unity.  Your consciousness is evolved but you are not aware of it. The first awakening helped you understand why you like you are, the second awakening trains you to be a masterful mystic who brings light and high-frequency energy to the world.

I Am an Empath

Meet Your Instructor: Sarah Weiss, MA, LMT

This training was created out of Sarah’s almost 50 years of experience as a medical intuitive, spiritual guide, and subtle energy healer as well as the 69 years she has spent as an empath!  As a recognized teacher of the Sufi Tradition, The Andean Tradition, and The Taoist Qigong tradition, Sarah has integrated energy healing and consciousness-raising practices from all three traditions into a comprehensive program that teaches how to (1)maintain firm boundaries, (2) develop a personal identity that is the expression of your higher being, and (3) train your telepathic sensitivities to tune into light instead of darkness. The SpiritHeal Enlightened Empath Training allows Sarah to share her vision and practical wisdom to support the recognition of empaths as a valuable resource for humanity.

Who Should Take This Training?

This class is good for people from all walks of life. According to Judith Orloff MD, author of The Empath’s Survival Guide,  10 -20% of the population are empaths. This means empaths are found in every profession.

You should take this class if you want to:

  • Rise above the pain and suffering you pick up from others.
  • Improve your relationships.
  • Understand your sensitivities within an intuitive, spiritual, and energetic context.
  • Learn clear boundaries in life, work, and love.
  • Mature into a powerful, confident individuated adult
  • Improve your health, find clarity and peace of mind.

These goals are attainable through your participation in the year-long Enlightened Empath Training Program!

I entered this course not understanding what it means to be an empath (and even denying at times that I was an empath!), and I completed the course having a much truer understanding of my empathic nature. Throughout the year, I discovered how being an empath has expressed itself in my life; learned coping mechanisms to live as an empath; and felt the joys and benefits of being an empath. I believe this is still unfolding for me, but the anxiety and uncertainty that I dealt with every day before starting this course have certainly eased and, in some ways, completely released. —Jamie B.


The Evolved Nervous System of the Empath

The Enlightened Empath Training recognizes the empath as a human with an evolved nervous system.

With every leap in consciousness, the human nervous system must adjust and adapt to process the new consciousness that courses through its electrical circuits and subtle energy pathways. Empaths are on the leading edge of this leap. 

Training is essential if the empath is to attain an ascended purpose.  Within the context of a sacred mystical school, empaths have the support necessary to develop mastery of their sensitivities and to consciously direct their energies towards finer subtle realms. They become the oracles, seers, healers, sages, and wise guides to portals of higher consciousness.

An enlightened empath must be able to maintain a delicate and refined nervous system while having enormous strength and courage to live what they know. To grow beyond the wounds that bind their heart and minds to self-preservation, the empath needs to be proficient in the mystical arts of light, sound, and frequency communication.  Learning to live within the heart of Mother Earth and Father Sky protects the empath until the day they are born into their true self.

Before taking this class I felt that I knew a lot about living as an empath.  I now have a more expanded vision of what it means to be an empath.  This class brought me new insights, realizations, and clarification through the knowledge transmitted in class and in the manual, videos, audios, and readings.  I especially value the fact that the teaching is from a mystical, holistic perspective that includes practical techniques.  I would recommend the class to anyone who feels that he or she might be an empath. —Maureen R.

Are You an Empath?

Judith Orloff, MD, in her book, The Empath’s Survival Book, sums up the empath this way. The trademark of an empath is feeling and absorbing other people’s emotions and/or physical symptoms because of their high sensitivities. These people filter the world through their intuition and have a difficult time intellectualizing their feelings.

She continues with a fuller description of the empath’s nervous system.

Empaths have an extremely reactive neurological system. We don’t have the same filters that other people do to block out stimulation. As a consequence, we absorb into our own bodies both the positive and stressful energies around us. We are so sensitive that it’s like holding something in a hand that has fifty fingers instead of five. We are truly super responders….Empathy is a loving, fierce, and clear form of emotional intelligence.

Orloff describes the 10 common traits of an empath:

  1. Empaths are highly sensitive.
  2. Empaths absorb other people’s emotions.
  3. Many empaths are introverted.
  4. Empaths are highly intuitive.
  5. Empaths need alone time.
  6. Empaths can become overwhelmed in intimate relationships.
  7. Empaths are targets of energy vampires.
  8. Empaths replenish in nature.
  9. Empaths have highly tuned senses.
  10. Empaths have huge hearts and sometimes give too much.

I would add:

  1. Empaths can experience negative emotions as illness, pain, and discomfort.
  2. Empaths easily lose their sense of self and have poor boundaries.
  3. Empaths often feel out of place and misunderstood.
  4. Empaths require a specialized form of health care due to their ability to express the symptoms of others.
  5. Empaths readily tune into the spiritual realms and the unseen dimensions of consciousness.
  6. Empaths are truth seekers.
  7. Empaths show us a preview of the evolving human.

If you identify with several of these traits you might be an empath!

Insights into the Evolving Human

Humanity is in a transition phase. The earth has entered a high-frequency area of the Milky Way that traditionally brings about a shift to higher frequency consciousness.  This we know from the ancient wisdom teachings of the Vedas in which the cycles of consciousness are described in detail. The sensitivities of today’s empath are a preview of the evolving human species. Acquiring empathic sensitivities are necessary to grow into the heart-centered dimensions of the new paradigm.  These sensitivities include:

  • Sensing space as a connective matrix of intelligence.
  • Experiencing the continuum of consciousness throughout all dimensions.
  • Engaging the world telepathically, sensing all as alive and communicative.
  • Living in unity consciousness where all is visible, and nothing is hidden.

If you are an empath, think of yourself as ahead of your time and leading the way. You are sensitive in ways that others have not yet learned to be.

Yet, these same sensitivities pose challenges if you do not understand how they fit into your current world.

  • Are you living your passion?
  • Do you show up as your true self?
  • Can you soothe and nurture yourself?
  • Are your boundaries clear and healthy?

The Enlightened Empath Training Perspective

The curriculum of The Enlightened Empath School helps release limitations and rise to the challenge of being the true you.  Each month will have a primary theme supported by lecture, group discussion, guided meditations, self-healing energy practices, recommended readings, and access to the class recording.  The primary modalities of the school are Attunement, Transmission, and The Healing Ceremony. This is a mystical school sourced in the light and wisdom of the lineage of enlightened masters. As an empath, YOU are a member of this lineage and innately understand that transformation is based on exposure to frequencies of light, sound, and energy and is not a function of empty words.

  • Attunements align your being to your next highest frequency to release denser energies.
  • Transmissions convey transformative energies that stream through your mind, body, and spirit, conveying just the right frequencies to animate your power to be.
  • Healing Ceremony calls forth the healing energies that rise from Mother Earth and pour down from Father Sky in the infinite spiral dance of the masculine and feminine creative energies that purify and restore your wholeness.

Learning to navigate the empath’s world is a journey towards enlightenment. Learning to manage empathic sensitivities teaches us about ourselves and leads to greater clarity, peace, and compassion. Yogis, shamans, and sages spent years, even lifetimes, developing the sensitivities to the subtle world that you have. Now that you have this sensitivity, how are you going to use it?

There is No Cure, But Why Would You Not Want to Be an Empath?

I have walked this path. I am an empath. You are never cured of being an empath, nor do you resign yourself to confusion and suffering. Your nervous system is biologically set.  The evolving human will be more sensitive, not less. Your sensitivity level is already heightened.  

Empaths learn optimally by feeling in another what they want in themselves. When you read a book by an enlightened master, you know the experience of enlightenment.  When you stand by a healthy, strong person you experience what healthy and strong feels like.  These become your reference points and set your being on a path of attainment.  Once you experience what you yearn for, your being will find a way to experience it again and again until it is a state grounded in your being. The attunements, transmissions, and healings you will experience in The Enlightened Empath School will lead you to deep authenticity and grounded wisdom that can be expressed in your life.

The hope of The Enlightened Empath Training is to transform suffering into joy and confusion into clarity.

The Sacred Circle

The members of the class create the space for receiving wisdom and healing, for becoming the enlightened empath. We form a sacred circle during the first class.  Our higher beings, Mother Earth, Father Sky, and many ascended beings will help create a healing wisdom temple on the subtle planes for our class. You will be participating in a true wisdom school and be supported through subtle frequencies between classes.  The insights, questions, and “aha’s you share on the private FaceBook page will inspire and help focus the entire class.  You are very much an active participant in this program.
