#151 – Being An Empath & Protecting Your Energy with Dr. Karen Kan

Dr. Karen Kan podcast

My guest this week on the Curiosity & Consciousness podcast is Dr. Karen Kan.

Dr. Karen Kan is a Doctor of Light Medicine and the Founder of the TOLPAKAN™ Healing Method. She uncovered research that shows that 30% of people are highly sensitive. In her experience, they often suffer from depression, anxiety, and overwhelm.

Dr. Karen’s mission is to empower sensitive people to harness their gifts as a superpower so they can shine their light and pull the world out of darkness.

About 18 years ago, after leaving her post as assistant professor at UCLA to start a new life in the country, she stressed herself to burnout and developed fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

As a child Karen was already a sensitive soul, but when she burnt out, she became sensitive to everything: food, toxins, electromagnetic radiation, loud sounds, and negative emotions. She was like a human energy sponge and she eventually developed autoimmunity and low thyroid on top of everything else.

Because of her illness, Karen re-connected with her spirituality and became an expert in holistic healing. In the last few years, she developed the TOLPAKAN™ Healing Method, a 3-step process to Align with Source, Ask the right questions, and Activate powerful healing frequencies. She calls it Light Medicine.

Since then Dr. Kan has helped sensitive souls around the world harness their superpowers, express their soul’s mission, and create joy in the process!


I really enjoyed connecting with Dr. Karen for this conversation. She shares how she burnt herself out as a conventional medical doctor but when she was doing all the things she told her patients to do, and she wasn’t getting better, she started looking at the bigger picture. Nutrition became an important aspect for her (which she wasn’t taught in medical school) and also her psychic powers.

She realised she was highly empathetic and was picking up on everyone else’s energy & hence she became super sensitive. Now she helps other empaths to realise this sensitivity as a superpower.

In this episode she talks about:

  • How the conventional medical path is very stressful.
  • What was lacking from conventional medicine.
  • Her definition of an empath.
  • The importance of clearing your energy field.
  • How to get into the ‘auto-healing’ state.
  • Building a stillness or body awareness practice.
  • Healing on multiple timelines.
  • How we are all interconnected & co-manifesting.
  • And much more.

Dr. Karen also shares a number of free gifts for listeners including;
