Campaign ClosedYou no longer can pledge on the project
What is The Empath Accelerator?
The Empath Accelerator is a rare and dynamic accelerator that uses intuitive coaching and guidance to help build better entrepreneurs and employees. The focus is healing marginalized women, that have limited resources, to secure non-traditional healing modalities in areas of trauma and clearing generational patterns, with the objective of creating a fluid emotional landscape that supports the whole being in a virtual space led and supported by other black women and non-black women of color. The abysmal statistics surrounding the quality of life that many women face, especially women of color, validates the value of this soul-centric approach. These limitations are pervasive in life, especially in the workplace and professional space, and require a customizable and flexible model for solving these persistent problems.
In this group session, the cohort can explore race as a condition of their being-- without the fear of being invalidated or judged, which creates the vulnerability to consider emotions and spiritual components such as soul purpose, attraction point, and clear agreements. This knowledge allows them to be successful in both their pathway to business, thriving careers, and entrepreneurship.
This distinctive accelerator promotes connection with the self and the higher being as a priority to prepare participants to show up more confidently in corporate culture as well as personal business pursuits.
Our mission is to provide guidance in a relatable way; in a setting that supports black women and other non-black women of color during the current historical and turbulent sociocultural times. This accelerator moves to empower rising professionals specifically in the industries of technology, sales, and advertising to enhance awareness of the invisible aspects women face while actively building up the undernourished elements of the employee in corporate culture.

Who is Life of an Empath?
Women are innate fighters. This fighting spirit drives us powerfully through our struggle despite the obstacles the world throws in our path. In this fight, we often sacrifice the needs of our hearts, our true love, our creative passions, and even the yearnings of our souls. We make these sacrifices earnestly. In doing so, we lose components of our vital force and forget to honor ourselves. This belief is the spirit in which Life of an Empath was founded; to help women remember whom they came here to be and to remind them to look back at the young girl who dreamed of ruling the world.
Life of Empath pairs unique mindset workshops with intuitive guidance offered by Tonesha Sylla to help those seeking spirituality or seeking to know themselves on a soul level. Through spirituality, all things can be considered; purpose, creative passions, ancestral trauma, identifying roadblocks, and exploring professional opportunities.
At the core, Intuitive Coaching is a merging of universal guidance and a safe space for you to discover your highest potential. The willingness to be open to receiving and speaking freely without judgment will allow you to alter your perception of yourself and others. This ancient form of guidance empowers you to be a collector of questions in your spiritual journey. It offers you a tool-kit packed with manifestation power, more faith in yourself, and, most importantly, clarity. How else can we learn to makeover our souls, without a soul level perspective?
When utilized fully, intuitive coaching can help you understand the many ways energetic roadblocks arise and prevent forward movement, emotional growth, and abundance in all areas of your life.
Intuitive Coaching at Life of an Empath will make it easier for you to accept your growth journey and realize deeper connection within; while providing the tools to shift your fear mindset. Only then will you be able to understand spirituality as the connection that will make all things possible.
