2020 Enlightened Empath Retreat
The 2020 Enlightened Empath Retreat
A Five Day Retreat with Sarah Weiss, MA, LMT
August 23 – 27, 2020 (Maximum 12-14 Participants)
Pre-requisite: 1 class or 1 private session with Sarah Weiss
The Enlightened Empath Retreat is a five-day immersion into the source and lineage of the empath’s consciousness. Modules on healing your history and past lives, understanding subtle energies and your telepathic abilities, healthy boundaries, soul retrieval, and soul purpose, connecting with Mother Earth and Father Sun to create a sacred life, and gathering your energy to create a calm, clear center are included in this delightful retreat.
It’s amazing what happens when a group of empaths gathers together! The similarities, understanding, common experiences, and the ease of relating when you are with your tribe all contribute to appreciating and embracing your empathic self. You no longer feel marginalized because your highly sensitive perceptual ability and your passion for diving deep is affirmed and valued.
This retreat offers you the comfort of silence, community, and deep resonance with the healing spaciousness of the high desert. Our accommodations at Bear Mountain Lodge are splendid and very comfortable. The food is prepared with love and in accordance with your dietary needs and the 180 plus acres of high desert are inspirational.
Empaths are a preview of humanity’s future. The unseen world is becoming seen through science and technology. Energy, thoughts, feelings, and subtle communication are now measurable and visible through current technology. What empaths experience is now proven by science. You are validated and you valued.
Empaths communicate telepathically and know each other from the inside out. Travel between dimensions, communion with beings who inhabit parallel dimensions, and the ability to communicate without words is part of the empath’s world that is difficult to explain to non-empaths. Yet empaths are challenged to live in a world where others are not as highly perceptual as they are. It is a great source of pain to be silenced and dismissed because your experience is not the experience of the mainstream. But, the consciousness of humanity is changing quickly and it is time to take your place and speak your truth. It’s worth the risk right now.

The Empath’s Unique Nervous System
The empath’s nervous system is biologically tuned to Oneness. 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. The Enlightened Empath Retreat provides the optimal environment for self-discovery within sacred space.
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.
I entered the retreat with an open mind and left the retreat with an open heart. Each day I was at the retreat site I had enlightening experiences, some subtle and some more intense, that drew me closer to what I would consider my True Self. My deepest experience occurred on the second day at the City of Rocks, during which I felt embraced by Mother Earth with a sense of unconditional love and healing. I connected at a level in which I was the eyes, ears, and senses of the Earth where I rested. I experienced a deep opening of my heart chakra and an embodiment of Mother Earth. Before, after and throughout the retreat I came to a number of Self/self-realizations. I felt I had the energetic platform to encounter and embrace many experiences, including those that were initially discomforting, that were doors to a greater self-‐awareness. I left the retreat, and abide now, in a greater sense of calm awareness which I will continue to explore and nourish. –Mark T.
The Retreat: August 23 -27, 2020
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 your retreat leader, Sarah Weiss will take you through a transformational retreat to support a 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 August 22, and leaving on August 28. We begin at 9 AM on August 23 and finish at 7 PM on August 27. 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.
