As an empath and HSP I found some helpful concepts in this book. Specifically regarding establishing some time and space for recharging and processing. I have read a good bit on this topic already so I didn't hear anything new as much as I was reminded of things I needed to hear again. As a believer in the Bible and a follower of Christ I found some things I thought to be a bit sketchy from a theological view but this book never claimed to be a theological textbook. Overall I would recommend it to someone who is just starting to understand and study up on High Sensitivity or empath abilities, but I would also recommend you take it with a grain of salt and filter it through more grounded spiritual instruction.
