"Going straight to the heart of the mystery of love, divine and human, this is a work from one of the most truly original thinkers of our time."―Lon Milo DuQuette, author of Low Magick and Homemade Magick

"I admire Raven Digitalis. . . . His books are well written and reflect long observation and reflection on any particular subject. Esoteric Empathy is no exception. It promises to become the classic work on empathy. . . . A very worthwhile volume."―Raymond Buckland, author of Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft and Buckland's Book of Spirit Communications

"This book is a must for anyone who finds themselves confused by their sensitivity to others but cannot find answers. . . . Esoteric Empathy makes this journey unique and insightful."―Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone, authors of A Witches' Bible and Progressive Witchcraft

"Bravo, Raven, for Esoteric Empathy! It should be on the bookshelf and on the required reading list of every occultist, witch, shaman, healer, magic- and spirit-worker, as well as anyone else I missed, who engages and is engaged by the subtle levels of human and non-human experience. (Oh goodness, that's every human alive isn't it?) . . . Through "magical empathy," our consciousness can merge and mingle with the light, life, and love-force that connect us all."―Orion Foxwood, author of The Faery Teachings and The Candle & the Crossroads

"Meaning in the world arises from the heart. In times as challenging as these, the work of mending the world is best understood by those who feel deeply. Those sensitive souls who feel the beat of other hearts as if they were their own are a treasure of equal parts strength and tenderness. Esoteric Empathy is a book that can be a sanctuary and a training ground for those spiritual people who want to embrace their gift of empathy."―Ivo Dominguez Jr., author of Spirit Speak and Practical Astrology for Witches & Pagans

"Raven Digitalis gives us a comprehensive and clear-eyed look at what it means to be an empath, with great ideas for turning what can be a challenge into an advantage. This book is a must-read for any empath. I wish it had been around when I was in my teens and twenties!"―Deborah Blake, author of Everyday Witchcraft and the Baba Yaga novels

"In Esoteric Empathy, author and spiritual teacher Raven Digitalis shows us how we are frequently and unconsciously mired in empathic energetic surges that toss us this way and that. What's more, he offers us a variety of techniques, rituals and exercises for tuning into, taming, and safeguarding this important dimension of being, providing us all with a journey that can heighten awareness and shed new light on the rocky and frequently shadowed terrain of the mysteries-from-within."―Timothy Roderick, author of Wicca: Another Year and A Day and Dark Moon Mysteries

"For those who experience heightened empathy in their everyday lives, now there's a guidebook to both getting the most out of this gift and being able to manage its demands! Focused on compassion and love, Esoteric Empathy is a gentle but effective guide to one's emotional and energetic state."―Lupa, author of Nature Spirituality from the Ground Up and DIY Totemism

"Esoteric Empathy is a cleverly sober and intelligent look at a subject bandied about with far too many broad strokes in most modern mystical treatises. Through relaying and analyzing personal experiences while simultaneously drawing from psychological and neuroscientific journals, Digitalis conveys a warm and inviting tone to his writing, as if the book were little more than an overgrown letter to a trusted pal. The most striking and I would say most important parts of this work are the many exercises included to help the reader train and control their own empathic abilit
