Editorial Reviews


Michael Eisen has become one of my favorite students. I know that everything he learns from me, and his own life experience, will be shared with the younger generation. Michael together with his Father, Jeffery Eisen, has written this wonderful new book called Empowered YOUth. There are many books written by mothers and daughters, but I believe this is the first book written by a father and son. There is a better life to be lived if we are willing to make some changes in the way we think, speak and act. Parents can heal, children can heal, and entire families can heal together. Michael and Jeffery show us a way. I believe this book will have a big positive impact and create many profound changes in the lives of parents, families, children, teachers, and anyone who has a child in their life. I love this book and I am sure you will enjoy it too!
-Louise L. Hay, founder of Hay House Publishing and international best-selling author of You Can Heal Your Life 

Empowered YOUth awakens our consciousness so we can become positive guides for the next generation. If we want a healthier, happier, more abundant future we must shift our own energy and inspire the next generation to follow suit. Empowered YOUth is our guide to changing the world one mindful thought at a time.
- Gabrielle Bernstein, Best-selling author of Spirit Junkie

 Michael and Jeffrey Eisen close the so-called "generation gap," proving that the human connection (and spirit) are ageless. As a parent, I was inspired by this story of how a father and son went from divided to united through transformational work, reinventing their family and creating a template for those of us who want to experience love, not struggle, in all our closest relationships. With young people facing greater challenges than ever, this work is a timely must-read to consciously raise the next generation.
-Ophira Edut, The AstroTwins (www.astrostyle.com), author of Body Outlaws, and founder of www.loveyourbody.org

Michael and Jeffrey Eisen, a father-son team who struggled with their relationship for many years, provide hope for all parents and children who long to not only heal from past wounds, but use the healing journey as an opportunity for transcendence. With practical wisdom and insight, they give us both inspiration and tools for how to transform past traumas and troubled relationships into fuel for stoking the fires of a more empowered and conscious life. Empowered YOUth provides a road map for how to heal old wounds, repair past conflicts, alchemize life's pains into gold, and flourish with a new perspective on love, the pursuit of happiness, and the meaning of life. It’s a must-read for every parent or child who yearns for reconciliation and longs to awaken.
-Lissa Rankin, MD, author, founder of OwningPink.com and blogger at LissaRankin.com

"Michael and Jeffrey offer a powerful blueprint of how fathers and sons, and parents and children, can truly befriend each other so as to grow, heal and flourish in life. I recommend their work wholeheartedly."
-Robert Holden Ph.D., author of Shift Happens!

Throughout history, the father – son relationship has been known to be notoriously rocky, often expressed with a lack of communication, rivalries, or simple misunderstandings. Jeffrey and Michael Eisen look to change all that with their inspiring story in Empowered YOUth. A heartfelt, down to earth and highly applicable book and a must read for not just fathers and sons, but all parents, children, and anyone that wants a deeper understanding of the parent-child bond and how to bring that relationship to its highest possibilities.
-Nick Ortner, Executive Producer, "The Tapping Solution"

Empowered YOUth is a transformative book written by a wise and loving father and son. Through their engaging journey, Jeffrey and Michael help deconstruct the paradigms and beliefs that contribute to family stress, anxiety, and unrest. They provide a refreshing perspective on how parents and youth can work together to encourage and support one another by opening the channels of communication, surrendering the need for control, and leading by shining example. This book has the power to strengthen families for generations to come.
-Kris Carr, New York Times best-selling author, Crazy Sexy Diet.

Wouldn’t all of our lives be better if we understood our parents and our parents understood us? The journey of understanding between father (Jeffrey) and son (Michael) in Empowered YOUth, and their coming together for a common purpose, breathes new life into the struggles of all ages. Through their stories and process they teach us all the principles of conscious living, and how passing these on to our children can create a ripple effect for generations to come.
-Michelle Phillips, Bestselling Author of The Beauty Blueprint: 8 Steps to Building the Life and Look of Your Dreams

We are all either children, parents or both -- so this book is a must read for anyone who wants to improve a relationship with a parent, a child, or our SELF.

Micheal Eisen is the founder of the Youth Wellness Network, an organization dedicated to empowering youth to live happier and healthier lives. 

Michael's co-authored of 'Empowered YOUth: A Father And Son's Journey to Conscious Living', is a book that offers guidance and insights for parents, young people and educators. Young people will love Michael's honest and emotional examination of an angst-filled childhood. Michael provides inspiration for those looking to empower the next generation in a more loving, open and intuitive way. 'Empowered YOUth' will leave your viewers feeling hopeful, passionate and optimistic. I wish I had this book when I was painfully transitioning into adulthood.

The power in Empowered YOUth stems from the author's authenticity. The raw, unbridled expression of how they both unlocked a lifetime of shutdown emotions is gripping and meaningful in a way that is rare. You are invited into their sacred space in order to feel the similarities to your own life. They offer you a bridge to emotional wellbeing and REAL connection that every human craves. Their book is food for the human spirit.

My favourite quote:
"A prerequisite for living a conscious life is taking personal responsibility for your thoughts, words, actions, habits, choices, and relationships. Although some things may be out of your control, what you do possess, no matter what, is the ability to choose how you respond to anything that comes your way. Taking responsibility means accepting that you have the power to create the life you truly want."

Empowered Youth: A Father and Son's Journey to Conscious Living took me on an amazing journey through my past to where I want to be. As an adult female reader, I found that I was able to empathize with both figures in the book. Sometimes I found myself connecting with Jeffrey and other times I found myself connecting with the feelings and struggles of Michael. The book is about a journey between father and son but it is even more than that. It is about a soul journey that any one being can experience regardless of age, gender, race, religion. Thank you Michael and Jeffrey for sharing your perspectives and feelings on your own journey.

This summer I returned to my fourth summer at a camp called Omega Teen Camp. Every year I go because it is that camp that has transformed me. Every year, a good friend of mine comes to teach her workshop. This summer she brought a man named Michael Eisen with her. He was leading a class called Born to Be and giving out free copies of his book. I did not attend his class due to being in another class at the time, but I did get the book. I finished the book in 2 days. It was so amazing and heartwarming. It was incredible from how a relationship can go through a lot of conflict to then understanding and love. Once Jeffrey started working on himself he could change his relationships with others. Once Jeffrey saw life from a different view he then could see Michael from a different view. Michael stunned me with his authentic story. He did not hide anything about his life and I think that this is real courage. He then began the process of changing his life with his father's help. Once his father started being able to help him there relationship then transformed. And by the end they had both come together and changed their lives.I am now working with Michael and he is helping me dig deep. I am so looking forward to learning so much more from Michael. This book is a must read for every age.

After a while one can get truly jaded on self -help books and can stop buying them, after all you have heard it all and enough already I had the pleasure and honour of hearing Michael talk at a Hay House conference , initially dismissive , I was galvanized by his talk and ran to buy his book and was fortunate enough to meet him and have the opportunity to apologize for my judgement of him before I had even heard him speak. a charming and delightful young man.
I found this book totally entrancing, and although none of the concepts were new to me they were presented in such a totally refreshing , easy to read and inspiring way by this father and son team. The synchronicity of their coming together just when Michael most needed his father and when his father for the first time was able to be there for him. How awesome is that!
I love,love, love this book ,,it has grounded me again,brought me back to truths I had forgotten and it is helping me to be a better parent, grandparent and just a better person. I have bought tons of copies and giving them away as gifts. Toxic work place ? Read this. Thank you Jeffrey and Michael, great job, thank you for reminding me how to make living this life on this planet, better. Marilyn Clulow
