Our LIVE 5-Week Online Group Empath Training Program - Since 2010
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 an easy-to-follow step-by-step course that you can use to become an empowered empath. 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 energies on a daily basis.
What is important to note here is that 'darkness' is an invitation to Connect with Light. It's a motivator for change. When we are aware of shadow and darkness,we simply notice it and focus on the Light and the Good in order to transform. All the years of pain, feeling the emotions & hurt of other people, it is all for one thing and one thing only: to move forward with healing into the Light.
This is what we do in the Empath Academy. 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."

"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."

This system will work for you because it has worked for hundreds of other empaths over the last 10 years….both beginners and advanced empaths alike. Each step of the way, you are given simple exercises and I will hold your hand to make being an empowered empath less of a challenge. You are given a fail proof support system and you’ll hear from other empaths across the globe who will help you feel understood,validated, and supported. You'll learn that you CAN create empath boundaries and not be drained by others.
The content of the Empath Academy is a system I have developed through serious metaphysical exploration and connection to the Divine. I've had the benefit and pleasure to learn from some of the most talented and humble indigenous leaders, shamans, medicine men/women,channels, and healers. And along the way, I picked up a degree.....(or four)!
I do what I can to help you - I meet you halfway in union with Source/Divine/Universe. I’ve taught over 39 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. Should you ask, you can receive personal guidance on how you can use your empath gifts in this way as well. 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.
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.
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 event held on each Wednesday of the chosen month. We use an audio teleconference. Recordings will be made available fort hose that can't attend live. Each class is divided into two parts:
Part 1: 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. We'll then take a short break....
Part 2: The final 30 minutes is for Community / Intention Work. In weeks 4 & 5, the focus will be on the participants and the 'holding of space' for each other.This is where participants will be chosen at random to receive a 30 minute coaching session and support. 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! Exhilarating, even, perhaps.
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.

FOR THOSE IN EUROPE: Many past Europe participants have chosen to take the course entirely by listening to the recordings that are issued each week. Many have reported that they benefited very much from these recordings and this was an effective way to take the course.
Only 15 spaces are available (10 remain) on a first-come, first-served basis. We almost always fill the class.
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!!
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.
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!"
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.
become more balanced, flow with change, forge a new path in life, or generally bond to a group of inspirational souls, please, please sign up for an upcoming Academy without hesitation... it may well be one of the most wonderful experiences of your life. Michael Smith's energy transmutes pain and dis-ease with such equality, faith, grace, and peaceful empowerment by raising your vibration and helping you to remember who you are and what you are: unconditional, united, sacred love and light. After the Academy, I feel as though the world isn't different- I am different in it. Thus, please, if you are or feel you may be an empath, sign up for a session with Michael or the Empath Academy... extend and grow your natural compassion and light with us all! Go Gently.
