The Empath as Archetype contains the first five volumes of The Empath as Archetype series by Elaine La Joie, including the Empath and the Archetypal Drama Triangle, The Empath and Shamanic Energy Work, Motivations of the Empath, The Empath and Shadow Work, and the Empath and the Fan-Hero Family System. These books, written over seven years, are a compilation of case studies of Elaine's clients, and are now available in a collected edition.
Elaine begins with the Archetypal Drama Triangle, explaining the most common archetypal system humans can be caught in, but gives examples particular to Empaths. She moves on to describing shamanic techniques including Soul Retrieval and Underworld Work, used in her practice to help her clients heal wounds common to Empaths. Next comes a description of the most typical blindspots and faulty beliefs for Empaths as described by the Enneagram Type Four and how to change to more productive beliefs and behaviors. In the final two volumes she explains particularly troublesome relationships in which Empaths can become entangled, including the common family system that can produce the narcissistic personality.
Elaine La Joie, shaman and certified life coach, has worked with Empaths and Highly Sensitive Intuitives for more than ten years. During that time she has helped Empaths understand themselves and their relationships while using shamanic energy healing to resolve past traumas, including severe abuse. These books offer Empaths insight into their relationship and into the hidden motivations of themselves and others so that they can understand their loved ones and create the lives they truly desire.
