Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

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 (, author of Body Outlaws, and founder of

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 and blogger at

"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
