Dr. Judith Orloff joins us on Mental Health News Radio. Her new book The Power of Surrender and her upcoming workshop in Big Sur, Ca: Surrender to the Power of Your Intuition were on our minds. As our guests know, each show is a journey. Dr. Orloff rolled with it because that is who she is and we got into the topic on the minds of all of our listeners: Empaths.
Join us on the empath super highway with Dr. Judith Orloff.
Questions for Dr. Orloff:
In the book you say the world is in the midst of an emotional meltdown as well as an economic meltdown. What do you mean?
In the book you talk about 4 emotional types. What are they and how can that help us be happy?
How would someone know if they are empathic?
In the book you discuss emotional vampires – people who can be negative and drain your energy. How do we combat them to stay positive?
What action steps can we take from the book to overcome fear and worry to relieve stress in our lives?
What is an ’emotional affair’ and how can it hurt a relationship?
What are toxic or obsessive relationships and why are empaths so susceptible to them?
You talk about Empathic illnesses – when we can actually pick up and take on other people’s stress, symptoms, anxiety, depression or full blown illness such as heart disease or migraines. How can empaths protect themselves from absorbing other people’s symptoms?
You have a weekend retreat at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California on July 22 to 24: Surrender to the Power of Your Intuition. How will this workshop help empaths learn how to handle their skills and develop their intuition?
