Elaine_McFarland_(small)7Welcome to my website!   My name is Elaine La Joie.  I’m an Empath, Intuitive, Shaman, Life Coach, and former Research Scientist (physics and biomedical engineering)  My intention is to give other Empaths and Intuitives access to resources that will help ground you and your gifts in a very practical way.  Please browse the site for free essays under the resources tab on what it means to be an Empath, and what it is like to work with a shaman.

Elk Portals Workshop: Postponed until Spring 2021!

We had to reschedule our April Portal to June,  to October, and around to April again.  Fingers crossed that we will be released from lockdown!  Come join us in Portland, Oregon, for another fabulous workshop taught by Marv and Shanon Harwood of Kimmapii.  For more information please see this page here, or click here to view the flyer.  Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions about this special opportunity to learn from the Blackfoot tradition.

Elaine’s Writing: Empaths and their Relationships

There are lots of great books out there on intuitive gifts of being an Empath.  However, my books focus more on the Empath in Relationships, and what the healing process is like for us when we do our personal work with a shaman.  My books for Empaths are for sale in the Kindle Store, Kobo, iTunes, most digital booksellers, and in soft cover on Amazon!!   The Archetypal Drama Triangle, Shamanic Energywork, Motivations of the Empath, Shadow Work and the Fan-Hero Family System are for sale there at a lower price than my website. 

The first book, The Archetypal Drama Triangle, is now available for free download on Amazon, Kobo, iTunes, and other digital booksellers. 

I have also published all five non-fiction books for Empaths in one volume called The Empath as Archetype, Volumes One through Five.  If you know you want to own all five books, this is a convenient way to go.

My latest book is a work of fiction.  The Girl and Her Being is a mythic short story written for Empaths about the soul mate relationship.  Written as a fairy tale, follow an Empath on a journey of self-discovery on what it means to love, to be a friend, and to be in tune with guidance.  You can buy The Girl and Her Being on Amazon as well.

It’s been a while since I’ve published anything new aside from my blog.  In the works is a new book on Shadow Work for Empaths, specifically written about the Empath’s blindspots with romance, personal work, and interactions with narcissists.  I’ve been hesitant to publish this book given that it may make many Empath’s unhappy, so I will start with a small group of my clients for feedback.  If you’d like to be a part of this group, just let me know.

You can purchase all my books in pdf form through my website.  Just visit my shop page.

Please sign up for my blog to receive updates on essays for Empaths.  Enjoy all the free essays throughout this website which were written since 2002.  If you have questions or suggestions for new essay topics, don’t hesitate to contact me via email or my blog.
