The trademark of an empath is that they feel and absorb other people’s emotions and/or physical symptoms. They filter the world through their intuition and have a difficult time intellectualizing their feelings.

As a psychiatrist and empath myself, I know the challenges of being a highly sensitive person. When overwhelmed with the impact of stressful emotions, empaths can have panic attacks, depression, chronic fatigue, food, sex and drug binges, and many physical symptoms that defy traditional medical diagnosis.

We were deeply saddened to hear of the recent passing of of our longtime supporter, Dr. Annette Vaillancourt of St. Louis, MO.

In both her psychotherapy practice and in daily life, Annette was a unique being who had a significant impact on those who knew her. Family, friends, colleagues, and clients describe her as a remarkable woman, a “beautiful soul and true friend to the world.”

I think, therefore I am. Right?! Maybe not. Modern science has typically localized consciousness in the brain, but recent studies have shown evidence of consciousness showing up in the heart, the gut, and parts of individual cells. What will be revealed next? Could the mystics be right in their experience that consciousness extends beyond the body? Across time and space? What if the brain resides in consciousness, rather than the other way around?

I grew up in a culture where parents spend their lives taking care of their children and in return adult children are expected to take care of their parents through their later years. Living on a small island meant families stayed close to each other, which allowed for a greater support system to exist. My grandparents and great grandparents were part of my daily life and learning experiences, so in my worldview they were to be regarded with the highest respect, love and care at all times.
