The summit will run from Tuesday, February 22th through Thursday February 24th 2022.  Think of this time as a self care ritual and make it an experience where you wake up your senses.  

  • Light a candle to fill your space with beauty.

Do you find yourself…

  • Being hard on yourself?
  • Taking what other people say about you to heart?
  • Giving so much to family and friends that you don’t have enough time every day for self care?
  • Critical about the way you look?

The Empath Summit will give you space to connect with your highest self and be present in the moment so you can access self 💕 love.  

When you live from a place of self love, you’ll:

  • Honor your boundaries 
  • Know yourself 
  • Love your body
  • Feel worthy of love 💗 

Empaths and highly sensitive people deserve to be held in a safe and sacred space so they can gently turn their attention to their heart space. Empaths and HSPs are healers of the world’s wounds. Their biggest challenge is often taking care of themsleves first before helping others.  Daily self care rituals are the secret to shining from the inside out.  

Magic happens when empaths and highly sensitive pecome together.  Each day of the Empath Summit will be filled with amazing speakers who are ready to support you as an empath and highly sensitive person.

You can attend the summit absolutely free.  The links to join each speaker session live are here, and they will be emailed to you as well.

Ryan Hassan is Co-Founder and CEO at The Centre for Healing.

His passion for helping people with Mental Illness and Addiction comes from his own pain.

Ryan suffered from anxiety for as long as he could remember and that manifested in many destructive patterns throughout his life, culminating in a hardcore drug addiction to Methamphetamine & GHB.

Whilst this addiction took everything material from his life, it was also Ryan's greatest blessing. 

He was forced to face up to his mental and emotional demons, and he not only overcame the addiction but also his anxiety to feel peace for the first time.

This led him to completely immerse himself in how people end up in emotional pain and how it’s possible for anyone to be free from it.

This led him to opening The Centre for Healing, to help people who have found themselves in the pain he once was.

Ryan has been a Trauma Therapist for many years and has successfully helped countless people in getting past their Addictions & Mental Health issues through his experience, understanding and knowledge.

He is also co-creator of the healing modality Embodied Processing, with colleague & friend Matt Nettleton.

Together they have over 5,000 students from all across the globe.  The Centre for Healing

Sara Lopez is an intuitive coach and reiki healer in Vermont, U.S..  She is the founder of Empath Magic, a digital community for empaths creating focused transformation.  

Sara’s experience with chronic pelvic pain and severe anxiety in her 20’s led her on a journey to find healing and overcome overwhelm from high sensitivity.  She felt constantly on edge and unable to breathe, so much so that she could barely work.  When she learned about highly sensitive people and empaths, she finally understood herself better and learned to navigate the world in a new way.  

Her journey led her to teaching in the public schools for 14 years and then to doing an intensive apprenticeship with women’s health experts based in New York City.  From there, she coached countless women struggling with pelvic pain.  She found something was missing from the women’s health coaching world: the emotional piece.  When she began supporting women to focus on emotional healing, she was amazed to watch them find physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental balance and transformation.

Now, she helps empaths and highly sensitive people with emotional clearing to create focused transformation from a place of confidence, calm, and self love.  She believes empaths are healers of the world’s wounds who deserve to be better understood.  Her work has been published in Sensitive Empowerment, Core Spirit, and Period magazine.  Find her on Pinterest:

Kelsey Voller is a chronic illness strategist, helping people who struggle with chronic and complex health issues. She received formal education with a graduate degree in nutrition and functional medicine for chronic illness issues, however, she jokes that her own body provided her with most of her health training. 

Kelsey experienced chronic symptoms since she was a toddler, but they escalated quickly in her teens. By age 20, she was dealing with multiple disease labels and was told she'd need to manage those diseases with medications for the rest of her life. By age 23, she had to quit her job due to the severity of her symptoms and was bed-bound for weeks to months at a time for the next several years. She worked with many practitioners and tried many protocols, but didn't find substantial, lasting results. Kelsey's journey to find true healing eventually led her to the Medical Medium information. After many years of suffering with issues including anxiety, panic attacks, depression, endometriosis, chronic pain, hypermobility, chronic fatigue syndrome, neurological fatigue, interstitial cystitis, celiac disease, hypothyroidism, insomnia, and painful joints, Kelsey regained her health thanks to the Medical Medium information. Regaining her health has been the greatest gift in Kelsey's life and is why she is passionate about helping others to do the same.
