Creating a local Empath Support Group

As we start looking at building communties, I am discovering that there are so very few Empath communities already in existance and of those, many are becoming inert. Perhaps it is that people are not finding each other (and hopefully our Empath Support Groups pages will help with that.) Perhaps it is that no one knows what to do with these groups.

Empaths are a mixture of introverts and extroverts. I would say that more than likely most are ambiverts which is a little of both depending on mood and circumstances. We don’t always want to go to meetings but at the same time, we still do.

Since there are not a lot of expert empaths who are willing to teach for free (but we are still out there) just meeting each other and doing stuff together can start building a sense of community.

There are many activities an empath gathering can participate in. Overall, the goal of any empath support group should be to help you:

  • Understand your empath abilities
  • Protect yourself from
    • sensory overload
    • addictions
    • exhaustion
    • compassion fatigue
  • Navigate intimate relationships without feeling overwhelmed
  • Set healthy boundaries
  • Replenish your energy
  • Cultivate healthy nutrition habits
  • Develop healthy exercise routines
  • Connect with your intuition
  • Raise empath children
  • Deepen your spiritual connection to all living things
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Build a supportive community

While some of these activities may require “experts” for actual presentations or workshops, a new group could start by reading The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People by Judith Orloff MD.

Something I recommend for all new empaths it to figure out “Is this my feeling”? The most difficult aspect of learning to understand your empath gift is to recognize whose feelings you are feeling.

So now you have an idea of what to do, all you need is to find interested empaths. Facebook is the cheapest and easiest way to create a group. Another option is Nextdoor. A more expensive but often easiest is to create a group on

Whatever you decide to do, if you are comfortable doing so, contact us and we’ll add your group to the associated state pages listed on this page.
