A guide for empaths seeking to understand their unique nature, fully manifest their gifts, and embrace their role in the evolution of human consciousness • Explores how an empath’s qualities are strengths, not weaknesses, and why empaths are the way-showers for the next step in human evolution • Includes techniques and exercises to help you understand, control, and fully manifest your gifts, including how to clear your energy field and reclaim your sense of self • Explains the importance of embracing both the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine and the impending reactivation of dormant levels of consciousness, which will upgrade our human operating systems to function at a higher frequency • Includes access to online meditation tracks As an empath herself, Stephanie Red Feather has experienced firsthand the challenges of being extremely sensitive to subtle energies and the emotions of others. She knows that it can be overwhelming and cause you to lose yourself and doubt who you are. With this guide for anyone who’s ever felt out of place because of their sensitivity, Red Feather offers advice on how to manage life’s difficulties as an empath as well as insight into how these qualities are vitally important to the future of humanity. Affirming that being an empath is a real thing and you are not alone in your experience of the world, Red Feather offers practical exercises to help you understand, control, and fully manifest your gifts. She explains how to clear your energy field, stop energy leaks, and reclaim your sense of self. She warns of the pitfalls of being an empath, such as employing your gifts in unhealthy ways, and stresses the importance of embracing both the Divine Masculine, to create boundaries and safety, as well as the Divine Feminine, to practice radical self-care and live authentically from your own center. Red Feather explains not only that there are now more empaths than ever before, but that this surge in numbers is no coincidence. With the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, empaths represent the new human blueprint. They are the way-showers for the next step in human evolution, and they have a cosmic mission: to usher in a higher level of human consciousness, centered in the heart chakra. Red Feather also explains the impending reactivation of dormant levels of consciousness and cosmic memory, which will upgrade our human operating systems to function at a higher frequency. This shift is already acutely felt by empaths and will allow us to reclaim the lost powers of our ancestors. With this hands-on guide, Red Feather provides empaths the tools they need to empower themselves and embrace their essential role in the next step of humanity’s evolution and ascension into the frequency of heart-centered consciousness.

Empathic inference, or "everyday-mind reading", is a form of complex psychological inference in which observation, memory, knowledge, and reasoning are combined to yield insights into the subjective experience of others. This comprehensive volume addresses the question of how accurate our "readings" of thoughts and feelings of others actually are, introducing two innovative methods for objectivity measuring this key dimension of social intelligence. Presenting cutting-edge research in this emerging area, the volume offers essential insights into how and why people sometimes succeed, and sometimes fail, in their attempts to understand each other. Leading experts cover such topics as the evolutionary and social-developmental origins of empathic accuracy; physiological aspects of empathic accuracy; gender and other individual difference variables; empathic accuracy and processes of mental control; the dynamic role of empathic accuracy in personal and psychotherapeutic relationships; and the relation of empathic accuracy to applied domains in psychology. This book will be of interest to students, researchers, and professionals in a range of disciplines, including personality and social psychology, clinical and counseling psychology, communication, developmental psychology, and marriage and family studies.

In Kim Wuirch's Awakened Empath, the follow-up to Waking Up an Empath, Kim takes us through the tumults in her life since the first book--her marriage, her divorce, and her health. Throughout this process, Kim discusses her ongoing spiritual awakening and how past life regression shed light on her short-lived marriage and introduced her to Ken, the man with whom she discovered new love and a valuable partner in her spiritual growth. Together they explore the relationships between angels, archangels, Sirians, and earth guides and the role they play in spiritual practice. Kim dives deep into the concept of removing unwanted influences from one's spiritual practice and even shares a banishment spell that has worked for her. Kim reveals that not all energy influences are necessarily in alignment with the goals and happiness of the spiritualist. And though this may shake someone's footing, Kim guides the reader through that challenge with expert insights into the purpose of lingering souls (who should not be feared), new ways to think about the role of archangels, and the comfort that spiritual beings cannot deceive about the concentration of their light. Readers will learn about realms, realities, dimensions, crystal charging in the moonlight (readers will be shocked by the truth), intuition, universal consciousness, two portals of Gaia, and the difference between human time and spirit time. Kim also provides a detailed breakdown of the essential characteristics of many of the archangels, shares the thirteen aspects of human spiritual character, and enters a thoughtful discussion on her own "infinity healing" philosophy. Kim's book ends with a formula for an oil to protect against lower frequency energy, but her journey doesn't end--far from it. Readers will enjoy this conversation with Kim and come away learning many new things and refine their perspective on accepted conventions.

In this sweeping new interpretation of the history of civilization,bestselling author Jeremy Rifkin looks at the evolution of empathyand the profound ways that it has shaped our development-and islikely to determine our fate as a species. Today we face unparalleled challenges in an energy-intensive andinterconnected world that will demand an unprecedented level ofmutual understanding among diverse peoples and nations. Do we havethe capacity and collective will to come together in a way thatwill enable us to cope with the great challenges of our time? In this remarkable book Jeremy Rifkin tells the dramatic storyof the extension of human empathy from the rise of the first greattheological civilizations, to the ideological age that dominatedthe 18th and 19th centuries, the psychological era thatcharacterized much of the 20th century and the emergingdramaturgical period of the 21st century. The result is a newsocial tapestry-The Empathic Civilization-woven from a wide rangeof fields. Rifkin argues that at the very core of the human story is theparadoxical relationship between empathy and entropy. At varioustimes in history new energy regimes have converged with newcommunication revolutions, creating ever more complex societiesthat heightened empathic sensitivity and expanded humanconsciousness. But these increasingly complicated milieus requireextensive energy use and speed us toward resource depletion. The irony is that our growing empathic awareness has been madepossible by an ever-greater consumption of the Earth's resources,resulting in a dramatic deterioration of the health of the planet.If we are to avert a catastrophic destruction of the Earth'secosystems, the collapse of the global economy and the possibleextinction of the human race, we will need to change humanconsciousness itself-and in less than a generation. Rifkin challenges us to address what may be the most importantquestion facing humanity today: Can we achieve global empathy intime to avoid the collapse of civilization and save the planet? One of the most popular social thinkers of our time, JeremyRifkin is the bestselling author of The European Dream, TheHydrogen Economy ̧ The End of Work, The Biotech Century, andThe Age of Access.

Empathy has long been regarded as central to the art of medicine and especially to the practice of psychotherapy. The ability of a therapist to appreciate the patient's state of mind and frame of reference is the foundation of a therapeutic alliance and key to the process of healing. However, these subjective aspects of practice are rendered suspect by today's emphasis on objectivity: formal diagnosis, with biological treatments, and standardized methodologies that appear to be aimed more at disease than at the person who suffers from it. Pressured by the practice climate and by the advances of science, practitioners have become treatment specialists and the empathic healer has become an endangered species. In this book, the author establishes a new foundation for the use and value of clinical empathy that is based on a distinction between treatment and healing and a model for using psychotherapy as a component of an organized system of care: focused, attuned to the patient's presenting motive, and consistent with our understanding of the relationship between mind and brain. Practicing mental health professionals and students find the rationale for assessment and treatment planning in The Empathic Healer an invaluable aide as they seek to adapt to the marvelous discoveries about how the brain shapes and recovers from mental disorder, and how an empathic environment fosters recovery and healing within and beyond the treatment setting. Establishes the historical roots of the concept of clinical empathy and its relationship to healing Elaborates the ideological and environmental factors that enhance or interfere with empathy Explores the biological importance of empathy as a feature of the normal human brain Argues for the integration of mind and brain in a new dualism Presents a vision of psychotherapy as an important component of an organized system of care Differentiates between the treating and healing functions, and suggests how each relies on empathy Suggests how an endangered species may be preserved in the present technological era

Human physique and behaviour has been shaped by the pressures of natural selection. This is received wisdom in all scientifically informed circles. Currently, the topic of crime is rarely touched upon in textbooks on evolution and the topic of evolution rarely even mentioned in criminology textbooks. This book for the first time explores how an evolution informed criminology has clear implications for enhancing our understanding of the criminal law, crime and criminal behaviour. This book is directed more towards students of criminology than students of evolution. It is suggested that there is scope for more collaborative work, with criminologists and crime scientists exposed to Darwinian thought having much to gain. What is suggested is simply that such thinking provides a fresh perspective. If that perspective yields only a fraction of the understanding when applied to crime as it has elsewhere in science, the effort will have been worthwhile. The authors attempt to provide a modest appraisal of the potential contribution that a more welcoming approach to the evolutionary perspective would make to criminology; both theoretically (by expanding understanding of the complexity of the origins of behaviour labelled criminal) and practically (where the evolutionary approach can be utilised to inform crime control policy and practice). An evolutionary lens is applied to diverse criminological topics such as the origins of criminal law, female crime, violence, and environmental factors involved in crime causation.

Empathy is profoundly important for understanding people's feelings and behaviour. It is not only an essential skill in conducting successful personal and working relationships, it also helps us understand what makes people moral and societies decent. With this compelling book, David Howe invites the reader on an illuminating journey of discovery into how empathy was first conceptualised and how its influence has steadily risen and spread. He captures the growing significance of empathy to many fields, from evolutionary psychology and brain science to moral philosophy and mental health. In doing so, he eloquently explains its importance to child development, intimate relationships, therapy, the creative arts, neurology and ethics. Written with light touch, this is an authoritative and insightful guide to empathy, its importance, why we have it and how it develops. It offers an invaluable introduction for readers everywhere, including those studying or working in psychology, counselling, psychotherapy, social work, health, nursing and education.

Who am I, if not my heart?A close encounter with the mysterious force field universally known as the white light, triggers a series of catalytic awakenings that deliver radical insights into what it means to be alive. In sharing these revelatory seeds of consciousness, Lujan invites us to openly examine bias and discover where our alignments are leading us.Incalculable variables of vibration define our reality from A to Z. In a rapidly changing technological and social context, it is now time we took a very close look at the pervasive influence of frequency upon our perception and behavior, both individually and collectively.To be governed by heart awareness within our personal application to the world is how we can reassign our attention to what actually matters. Pure feeling guides us into our innate ability to infuse with one another to the point where we experience unified consciousness. Full remembrance of this empathic communion is an evolutionary imperative whose time has come. Authenticity and taking the risk to truly care are not only crucial to our survival but necessary traits indicating readiness to participate in the greater galactic community. Beyond our earthly holding zone communication is sent and received as direct energetic transmissions that transcend cultural or species- based codes and boundaries. Truth and sincerity is the only currency that has value, and nothing less will open this elusive door.By introducing perspectives that enable us to look beyond the thresholds we are contained within, this book shines a powerful light upon the lies and limitations that have been perpetuated towards humankind. Controversial and necessary, these internal illuminations have the power to change the world, for they will change you.Are you ready? You've only your illusions to lose.

"In recent years, psychological scientists' narrow focus on negative emotions and antisocial behavior has broadened to include a panoply of positive emotions such as empathy, compassion, gratitude, and forgiveness and a new emphasis on prosocial, generous, altruistic behavior. At the same time, neuroscientists, primatologists, and evolutionary biologists have begun to identify the evolutionary and neurological roots of prosocial feelings and actions. Research shows that human beings have an innate capacity for prosocial behavior, but the inclinations underlying such behavior can be inhibited or overpowered in selfish, neurotic, or culturally engrained attitudes and values. Genes, personality, past social experiences, social and cultural identities, and contextual factors can all influence the degree to which human behavior is empathic and generous or cruel, vindictive, and destructive. Prosocial Motives, Emotions, and Behavior, with a subtitle borrowed from an inaugural address In Abraham Lincoln, is a comprehensive examination of the interplay of these influences. Part I considers theoretical perspectives on prosocial behavior; Part II illuminates the psychological processes that underlie prosocial behavior; Part III focuses on specific emotions such as compassionate love, gratitude, and forgiveness; Part IV examines prosocial behavior between individuals at the dyadic level; and Part V investigates prosocial behavior at the societal level, with an emphasis on solving intractable conflicts and achieving desirable social change. This stimulating, wide-ranging volume is sure to be of great interest to psychologists, social scientists, and anyone with an interest in understanding and fostering prosocial behavior"--Jacket.

Indian movies are among the most popular in the world. However, despite increased availability and study, these films remain misunderstood and underappreciated in much of the English-speaking world, in part for cultural reasons. In this book, Patrick Colm Hogan sets out through close analysis and explication of culturally particular information about Indian history, Hindu metaphysics, Islamic spirituality, Sanskrit aesthetics, and other Indian traditions to provide necessary cultural contexts for understanding Indian films. Hogan analyzes eleven important films, using them as the focus to explore the topics of plot, theme, emotion, sound, and visual style in Indian cinema. These films draw on a wide range of South Asian cultural traditions and are representative of the greater whole of Indian cinema. By learning to interpret these examples with the tools Hogan provides, the reader will be able to take these skills and apply them to other Indian films. But this study is not simply culturalist. Hogan also takes up key principles from cognitive neuroscience to illustrate that all cultures share perceptual, cognitive, and emotional elements that, when properly interpreted, can help to bridge gaps between seemingly disparate societies. Hogan locates the specificity of Indian culture in relation to human universals, and illustrates this cultural-cognitive synthesis through his detailed interpretations of these films. This book will help both scholars and general readers to better understand and appreciate Indian cinema.

This book analyzes contemporary visual art produced in the context of conflict and trauma from a range of countries, including Colombia, Northern Ireland, South Africa, and Australia. It focuses on what makes visual language unique, arguing that the "affective" quality of art contributes to a new understanding of the experience of trauma and loss. By extending the concept of empathy, it also demonstrates how we might, through art, make connections with people in different parts of the world whose experiences differ from our own. The book makes a distinct contribution to trauma studies, which has tended to concentrate on literary forms of expression. It also offers a sophisticated theoretical analysis of the operations of art, drawing on philosophers such as Gilles Deleuze, but setting this within a postcolonial framework. Empathic Vision will appeal to anyone interested in the role of culture in post-September 11 global politics.
