Judith Orloff, MD, is a psychiatrist, empath, and New York Times bestselling author of The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People. This course is based on her new book, The Genius of Empathy: Practical Skills to Heal Your Sensitive Self, Your Relationships, and the World, which offers powerful skills to tap into empathy as a daily healing practice in your life and relationships.
As an intuitive healer and member of the UCLA clinical psychiatric faculty, Dr. Orloff synthesizes pearls of traditional medicine with leading-edge knowledge of intuition, energy, and spirituality. Widely regarded as the “godmother of the empath movement,” she specializes in treating empaths and highly sensitive people in her private practice.
Dr. Orloff’s work has been featured on CNN and Today, and in O, the Oprah Magazine and The New York Times. She has spoken at Google-LA and has a popular TEDx talk. USA Today called her “a serene maverick.”
“Cultivating empathy is a kind of peaceful warrior training,” says Dr. Orloff. “Empathy training will help you stay strong and loving to yourself and others, without becoming overwhelmed and burning out. Wherever you are in your life, empathy can help you heal and lift you higher.”
