Ora North is an empath and healer who grew tired of the "love and light" scene. She felt a lack of authenticity in the new age movement and turned to emotional shadow work instead. In her shadow, North discovered a more authentic, integrative way to be a spiritual being. Now she works with other empaths, guiding them to explore their own shadows on the path to wholeness. Foreword writer Danielle Dulsky is author of The Holy Wild and Woman Most Wild.
"As a 'cry of the millennial witch, ' this guidebook has much to
offer those who need to effectively harness the powers of
empathetic sensitivities rather than be consumed by them. The
author speaks volumes to the various aspects of being an empath in
our culture, such as the dangers of the 'positive vibe only'
complacency, past trauma, and the neglect of certain emotions. She
offers innovative exercises such as listing your victims and
villains of your shadow self, a formula to write your own pain
alchemy affirmation, throwing yourself a pity party, and creating
voluntary energetic blindness. Bravo, Ms. North!!"

"Ora tells the truth about what it means to be a deep-feeling person in this world. She blazes a way through the precarious world of self-inquiry, and she offers real-world tools that are restorative to the raw nerves of an empath. This book is a healing."
--Erin Schroeder, The Psychic Witch, psychic teacher--Erin Schroeder
"Ora North brings a raw and powerful look at the reality of being an empath. It's not always glitter and unicorns; we must take a long, hard look at the wounds and shadows we hold; we must get real to heal. Ora skillfully guides us through this process so we can take off the spiritual mask and claim our true power as empaths."
--Lisa Campion, Reiki master teacher, and author of The Art of Psychic Reiki--Lisa Campion
"Ora North has penned an instant classic. I Don't Want to Be an Empath Anymore is the kind of book you immediately feel understood by; the kind of book that feels so perfect and obvious, you're a little surprised it didn't exist before it did. I devoured it and then gave it to my favorite people, because I wanted them to feel understood too."
--Arden Leigh, creator of The Re-Patterning Project, and frontwoman of Arden and the Wolves--Arden Leigh
"Ora North is the wise, witchy aunt I never had, who has arrived on the scene just when this heartbroken world needs her most. How I wish I could've read this bracing tonic of a book when I was sixteen, and so overwhelmed by confusing, painful emotions that all I could do was bury them. Ora reassures us in her straight-talking way that it's never too late to witness and integrate our dark, scary feelings--and regain our equilibrium. Goddess bless her for doing this groundbreaking work, and for writing this compelling, enlightening book to empower sensitive souls like me!"
--Simone Butler, astrological consultant at www.astroalchemy.com, and author of Moon Power and Astro Feng Shui--Simone Butler
"What a relief this book is! At turns fresh, familiar, frank, and funny, author Ora North manages to distill recovery models, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and shamanism into a coherent and accessible program for empathy management, self-healing, and relationship building. Don't take the title seriously, though. After working the exercises in I Don't Want to Be an Empath Anymore, you will not only be more comfortable being so deep in the world of emotion, you will have become adept at it and found yourself embracing what an asset your sensitivities are to yourself and others. Highly recommended."
