58: What is an Empath? With Caroline of The Happy Sensitive



I've heard the word "empath" a lot, but didn't truly understand what it meant. I thought it maybe simply referred to people who experienced a lot of empathy....? But that didn't seem right. When searching for a simple explanation about empaths, I came up empty, until I found this great article on Caroline's website, The Happy Sensitive. It was then I knew that I just had to get Caroline on the podcast to help explain empaths! In this episode, we discuss: What is and isn't an empath The struggles and benefits of being an empath The difference between an empath, trained empath, and clair-sentient Energy and spiritual levels versus practical, psychological level Want to support the podcast?
