Today we’re excited to welcome back Kate’s mother Dr. Christine Northrup, and she’s here to talk about her brand-new book, Dodging Energy Vampires: An Empath’s Guide to Evading Relationships That Drain You and Restoring Your Health and Power.
Dr. Northrup shares why she wrote this book, how it can help you, and the changes that she’s made in her own life to get to the place where she is now.
Energy vampires are real and they’re all around us, and this book reveals what we can do to regain and restore our own energy in order to remain empowered when we have to interact with these difficult people.
