2019 Enlightened Empath Retreat
The 2019 Enlightened Empath Retreat
A Five Day Retreat with Sarah Weiss, MA, LMT
June 10 -14, 2019 (Maximum 12-14 Participants)
There have been many times in the history of Mother Earth when all humans were empaths. They communicated telepathically with each other and could know each other from the inside out. The boundaries of mind and heart included all life and an energetic matrix connected all in a way that let us know we are not separate. Travel between dimensions, encounters with the beings who inhabit the parallel dimensions, and the ability to communicate without words was easily possible. All of this was an everyday occurrence and there was no need to take a spiritual path to discover the secrets and capacities of the embodied soul.
It was a completely different world than we know today. Imagine your relationships if secrets were impossible to keep and your heart embraced all that exists as living? Or if all the energy you ever needed was sourced freely? Imagine being so centered in the heart that your mind could not draw you away from your deepest wisdom? The very foundations of the culture would be based on collaboration instead of competition, and love instead of hate. You wouldn’t know how to hate someone because you’d be hating yourself.
Empath’s are the living evidence that this kind of world is possible. They remember it clearly and their nervous system is biologically tuned to a world where all are One. Cosmic wisdom is coded in everyone’s nervous system but it is more available through the empath’s nervous system. Unfortunately empaths rarely have a chance to be in an environment where they can access the depths of knowledge they carry within their being. They need a deeply silent, rarefied atmosphere to support their inner journey. They need time alone in a supportive environment where conflict is kept distant and they are affirmed in their ability to extract and interpret the wisdom and healing elixirs of their ancient souls.
I have attended many retreats throughout the years. Each one was meaningful and provided a modicum of growth. But I had a sense, when I heard about Sarah’s retreat in Silver City, NM, this year, that it was going to be very important for me and it was. Pardon the cliche but, it was life-altering. Not only was it the most nurturing experience I’ve ever had (the setting itself is so striking and healing, everyone at Bear Mountain Lodge took care of us so beautifully!), but Sarah drew us in and opened up incredibly deep teachings and attunements. The work was intense but days and nights were a seamless experience of growth and joy. I shed some tears but I also laughed hard every day. I was able to overcome obstacles I’ve worked on all my adult life AND, best of all, the changes have lasted. No “retreat high” followed by a later “crashing to earth”! Give yourself the gift of a lifetime! —Deborah B.
Who is an Empath
It is estimated that between 10 -20% of all beings are empaths, but most don’t know that they are empaths nor know what an empath is.
To put it in simple terms: an empath is someone who feels another’s pain, suffering, elation, genius, anger, and love as their own. Their is no distinction between your pain and my pain. I suffer as you suffer. This is the highest degree of empathy you can have. A highly sensitive person might feel the pain and suffering of another but they would know that it belonged to another person. The empath’s nervous system does not recognize anyone as “other”, it only recognizes Oneness.
If you’ve been accused of being “too sensitive”, or “overly delicate”, or an “old soul”, you may be an empath. You can imagine the challenges that empath’s encounter in today’s life where tremendous suffering, violence, and materialistic competition run counter to their nervous system. The world is confusing and painful for an empath because they have not been taught to understand and optimize their true nature. Many parents teach their children how to survive in a dog-eat-dog world but I know few parents who are knowledgeable about how to teach and encourage a child who is an empath. This is why empaths need training and need a deeply quiet and supportive setting to discover their true nature. They have been disembodied and hidden for far too long. We need their innate wisdom to help us transform and evolve, to be a model of what a mature, spiritual person in the world can be.
The Retreat: June 10 – 14, 2019
The Enlightened Empath Retreat is for empaths who crave an environment that supports their inner clarity. There is nothing an empath desires more than clarity! Clarity calms your nervous system, helps you feel confident in your intuitive wisdom, and allows you to express the truth of your being.
As retreat leader, Sarah Weiss, will take you through a transformational retreat to support greater understanding of your empathic nature, how it contributes to your path of enlightenment, and how to optimize your empathic strengths in daily life. Guided meditations, individual guidance, group discussion, journaling, and visits to sacred sites are included in the schedule.
The retreat is five full days and is intended to provide empaths with the time, space and silence they need to heal and grow. Plan on arriving at least one day early, on June 9, and leaving on June 15. We beging at 9 AM on June 10 and finish at 6 PM on June 14. It’s wise to give yourself time to adjust to the altitude and to settle into retreat mode. At the end of the retreat it is wise to give yourself time to absorb and integrate the retreat teachings before jumping back into your busy life.
