Imagine If...

You had a transformative experience – created specifically for empaths like you, that allowed you to quickly transform the blocks, challenges, and anxiety that holds you back from your TRUE essence, which is Peace and Light.

This is what you'll receive in the LIVE 5-week online Empath Academy. It's a potent empath empowerment training done with the utmost of love and nurturing.  We call on Divine Source energy to raise your vibration quickly so you won't feel overwhelmed by others or the world.

Registration for January 2021 is now open. 

The Empath Academy is a LIVE
5-week Empath Empowerment group class
Join our potent Online Training to Become an Empowered Empath!

The Empath Academy training course exists to prevent you from experiencing overwhelm, stress, and fatigue that is associated with being an empath.  

It was born of my deep desire to connect empaths together in co-creation and union with the Divine to experience magic. It's a transformational, step-by-step course that will lead to levels of self love and Divine connection that you have not yet experienced. The definition of an empowered empath/Divine Activator is “a clear spiritual vessel who travels effortlessly back and forth between dimensions of reality, purposefully creating Light vibrations through a union of Body and Mind in an effort to help others, should they so choose.”

As a Divine Activator empath, you will have your full power and won't be hurt by other people's energies. You can choose to engage your powers and take actions that will allow you to travel effortlessly back and forth between dimensions of reality and existence, should you choose.

The definition of an empath is someone who is a “walker between worlds,” and because of this ability to travel, the empath routinely experiences both polarities of existence. We have a deep, intimate relationship with the lower vibratory energies as well as the high vibratory energies. In other words, we intimately experience both Light and Dark/Shadow energies on a daily basis.  We do a unique form of what is called 'shadow' work in the academy & you'll learn to truly accept all parts of yourself, including the shadow.

Your soul will feel a call to this class if you are meant to be here. You will feel and know if this is the next step for you to your spiritual growth. We create, together in a community forum, massive amounts of Light energy. It's spiritual and ceremonial in nature in addition to the 'class' learning. The movement and growth when that happens when we do this together cannot be understated.

"Michael's Empath Academy was amazing.  I didn't want it to end. Michael is an extraordinary teacher who thoughtfully crafted a powerful curriculum. He's so engaging and gives 100% of himself in this course. I felt honored to be a part of the sacred space he created. Thank you Michael and every one of my classmates for a wonderful time!  I'm so excited to continue learning and helping others with the information I received from this course."
- Christina Knowles
"This has been just an amazing experience.  I know we have all grown from this experience.  The energy work is just life changing.  You have no idea.  Before I used to try to calm down from books, and I had no idea I wasn't in my body. So being able to work this way is just huge, the other half of the coin that I was missing.
- Jennifer M.
"If you're on the fence about this, I can personally vouch how life-changing this was for me. I took this course exactly a year ago, and Michael is such a gifted, compassionate, loving, and safe teacher. I am still friends to this day with my fellow classmates because you grow so close to them. Do it! You won't be disappointed."  
- Patricia Morris
"Today, I feel good. That unrelenting pressure is finally off. I slept. Woke up sweet, playful, loving and without much physical pain. So thank you Michael Smith and fellow empaths for your gentle loving gifts. This energy is showing up in deep contrast to what I was experiencing recent weeks"  
- Thomas G.
"I participated in the Empath Academy with Michael and I have to say it was life changing! If you are considering it, I highly recommend going for it! It was amazing how quickly our group connected so deeply, the energy the group created together and how the experience opened me up, gave me clarity and catapulted me forward. The practical and empowering skills I learned to help navigate the world and my energy have been invaluable! I recommend you do what you can to participate in the upcoming group, it's an amazing gift to your body, mind and spirit ... and to the world :)"
Beth Rollison
"I struggle to find the words to articulate what being part of the empath academy meant to me. It changed my life. I felt so surrounded by love and peace. These tools I will use for the rest of my life, but there was also a whole higher level of learning.  For those considering future Empath Academies, with all my heart, I urge you to register!  You will be so glad that you did. Michael created a comfortable environment in which the shyest of us felt we could share. He led gently and was so down to earth and I appreciated feeling so safe.  He is so incredible.  The group members were so gifted and generous with their gifts and we now share a strong bond. Thank you, thank you. I will never forget the opportunity to be a part of the academy."

Frequently Asked Questions.

Can I be sure this course will work for me?

This course has benefitted multiple hundreds of empaths over the last 10 years….both beginners and 'advanced' alike. For every cycle, the Universe sends us your brothers and sisters who vibe on the same wavelength as you. I survey the class after every cycle, and over 75% of participants have given it the highest possible rating, stating that the course exceeded their expectations. Each step of the way, you are given simple exercises and weekly homework to hold you accountable for sustaining your progress. You’ll be sharing with other empaths across the globe who will help you feel understood,validated, and supported. You'll learn that you CAN create boundaries and not be drained. MAGIC HAPPENS HERE. In fact, a magic and alchemy will begin the moment you make the decision to sign up. When you sign up, it's a huge sign to the universe that you are ready for something NEW and greater.

How difficult is the system to follow?

The content of the Empath Academy is a system I have developed through metaphysical exploration and connection to the Divine.   I've had the benefit and pleasure to learn and grow with talented and humble indigenous leaders, shamans, medicine men/women,channels, along with a mentoring & healing practice for two decades.      

I meet you halfway in union with Source/Divine/Universe. I’ve taught over 40 empath academies over the last 10 years to hundreds of students worldwide who have gone on to learn to refine their empath gifts.  Many of my former students are now using their empath gifts professionally, in the roles and careers the Serve and help others. One former student, Carissa Schumacher, applied the knowledge and skills in the empath academy and is now a renowned spirit medium using her gifts to lead Sacred Spirit Illumination tours in Sedona, AZ. It has been such a rewarding experience to see my clients light the spark in others and spread the Love through the world over the last decade.

Should I take this class or get the Complete Empath Toolkit?  What about the Awakenings Circle?

The Complete Empath Toolkit and the Empath Academy are two different and unique experiences designed for what you seek.  If you desire a lower priced program that is a self paced library of materials, then get the toolkit.  If you desire a TRANSFORMATIVE live course that will raise your vibration QUICKLY, with energetic support and lessons that build on each other weekly, along with personal connections, then choose the Academy.  Most of my clients have both programs. As for the Empath Awakenings Circle, that is an advanced 11-week program for those ready to Serve as emissaries of Light for the DIvine.  It is by application only.

Who is Dr. Michael Smith? (e.g. I'm writing this .....so maybe I should say, who am I?)

My name is Dr. Michael Smith, and I've been working professionally as a spiritual guide, psychologist, healing energy practitioner, & counselor for 20 years. My goal is to help you as a creative and intuitive empath step into your own energy and connect to your true Essence, which is Source. When you do, nothing can touch or hurt you and you can Serve others through your Light. Over a million folks have been touched by my work. I really don't know how that has happened.  Only the Universe knows. And the Ph.D. doesn't mean a thing, really.  It just means I took some steps and followed the doors the Universe opened for me, which I hope you'll do as well. I serve the Divine. The focus of my work has always been, and will continue to be, YOU.  And US.  Because we are all ONE.

How does the Empath Academy work?

The Empath Academy is a 5-week event, class, and more importantly, a spiritual CEREMONY. We call on Source and the Divine. Each session is a 2-hour to 2.5 hour VIDEO conference (Zoom) event held on each Wednesday of January 2021.  The video is optional, if you would prefer to call in via an audio or web audio call, you have that option. And you can turn your camera off at any time. Recordings will be made available for those that can't attend live.

In addition to our weekly 'check in' with each other and the sharing of our weekly experiences, placing our intentions into the circle,we will have approximately 90 minutes of live workshop type exploration and discussion,where I will lead you through a series of weekly exercises, each building on the others, and also to include your on-the-spot personal questions and interaction. We follow the energy and the 'flow' of the group.  We are One.  We move as One.  You'll experience that directly in this course.

What if I am shy?  What if I am not a group person?

If you're shy, perhaps the thought of sharing your voice and sharing your story in a group may terrify you.   If so, that's even MORE of a reason to sign up.   Growth and change almost always happens outside of your comfort zone.  So embrace that fear - it's an ally.  It's a friend.  It will lead you to the realization that there are others just like you.  Others who have the same experiences, the same fears, the same challenges, and yes, the same GIFTS and LIGHT.   

You'll feel so welcomed. This is not a traditional class.  This is a ceremony about the power of ONE. You'll have a-ha moments like never before, because of the very important decision to allow yourself to experience MORE, and come out of your shell. It's a big deal.  You are TOTALLY in charge of what you share.  We only ask you to be present, and introduce yourself the first class.  After that, the decision is up to you as to what and if you share.

Even the shyest empaths have reported that they felt safe, nurtured, and supported by myself and by the rest of the participants. It's a totally safe and loving space that we hold for you.

Can I participate if I'm in another part of the world?

Absolutely! We welcome those of you outside of the United States! You can call in via a web call via video or audio using your phone or computer.  

Our start time is NOON Thursday in Sydney/Melbourne * You are responsible for knowing the correct start time in your area.  Use time converter to check on the time in your area.

Participating in the Empath Acadamy was one of the best things that I could have ever done for myself...

Michael and all the class participants brought in great group energy. They each brought in a piece of the puzzle that I needed to move myself forward and become the woman that I am intended to be.  Michael is a remarkable man and a fabulous teacher.  You will walk away from this class with the knowledge to be the true you without facing fear or judgment. The joy you will experience after attending this academy will be remarkable.  Do this for yourself!!

- Stephanie

Michael, the course had already been exceeding my best expectations...

when last night featured for me my own huge release of energy, with a climax of huge lighting-like energy in my center.    My class didn’t end with the call.  I spent all night in vivid medicine dreams involving you and the class participants, and energy movements in my physical body.   I’m really amazed at the progress that is happening here, and your ability to be in tune with every participant on the call.

- A.G.

Your training seems to have opened up other psychic abilities in me as well....

For those of you who are on the fence about the Academy, I suggest you take that leap ASAP! It will help you to better understand yourself & your abilities; in addition to giving you confidence beyond belief! Also, thank you fellow Academy Trailblazers, it's been great intermingling with your magnificent energies!"  

- Karen, San Antonio, TX

Michael, Thank you so much for the life changing experience of your Empath Academy!

With your masterful facilitation, the multi-leveled learning went inside and is now part of me. It was not just a feel good experience in a class; it shifted and changed my daily life.  The Academy changed me deeply and profoundly. I AM different, a before and after.  Without reservation – a truly rare thing for me to do as I am extremely particular –  I wholeheartedly recommend the life transforming power of the Academy experience.  Again, with all my heart, Michael - THANK YOU for generously sharing your many gifts and talents!   Love, light & blessings.  

- Alison Carter, WV
