We will move through fields and wander through nature as we explore our strengths, skills, and qualities. You will be invited to create your experience in any way you choose, maybe with acrylics, watercolours, natural materials, collage, mixed media or any other way you choose.

The Empathic Experience. Are you an Empath?

Facilitator: Emma Sims

An empath is someone who is keenly aware of the emotions, physical sensations and cognitive processes of those around them. Walking in the shoes of others, they often feel, know and deeply understand the experience of the other. Around the empath, people feel safe, prized and understood. They may open up in ways they have never felt able to before. For the empath who has not learnt to manage the energies of others, as well as their own, it can be overwhelming and confusing. Often thought to be a curse rather than a blessing, learning to manage and work with our empathy can turn this around. Understanding co-dependency and focusing on personal triggers can be a key factor in growth, development and empowerment of the empathic personality. In this workshop you will find out more about the empathic experience: *The traits of an empath*When empathy isn’t *How we empathise & how empathy can develop out of dysfunction *Red flags *Tools to cope with empathy : practical, psychological, energetic, therapeutic *Energy clearing techniques Emma Sims is a complementary Holistic Therapist, Intuitive Practitioner and Reiki Teacher with 20+ years experience in this field. Based in the Community Resource Centre, Gwersyllt, Wrexham, North Wales. Emma is passionate about her work using her skills as an empath and a HSP, to work intuitively with you. Emma is also the author of the book "Self-Care for Givers and the Helping Professions"

Embrace the Wild Words Within

Facilitator: Tanja Sharpe
