The Seeing With Your Heart Creators

Dan Cohen, PhD and Emily Blefeld, LICSW are two of the United States’ most skilled innovators in merging advanced consciousness and spiritual principles into therapeutic practice. Scientists by background and Mystics by practice, Dan and Emily approach constellating and consciousness from both experiential and evidentiary standpoints.Their unique therapeutic approach has revolutionized both their practices and created scores of extraordinary success stories.

Together Dan and Emily access the ordinary, ancestral and spiritual dimensions of consciousness to create healing processes that are illuminating and life-transforming. In the field of their Constellations, ancestral presences often become tangibly real. Behind the pain of personal and transgenerational trauma, people can feel love and receive healing from the consciousness that envelops us.

The sincerity of their intention shines on all that happens during the work together. Dedication beyond the ordinary. Talent and expertise and imagination allow them to set the stage for participants to uncover their deeper truth.  — Sylvie Erb

Emily Blefeld, LICSW is internationally known as a trainer, Systemic Family Constellations facilitator, and psychotherapist. She specializes in supporting change-agents, visionaries and entrepreneurs to dismantle the old paradigms, outdated narratives, and ancient codes that hold them back and open to the full expression of their life’s purpose and soul’s path.  Her intuitive gift of sight and knowledge of the hidden pathways of consciousness help clients trace inherited family and soul trauma through multiple generations or incarnations to release the burdens and blocks that interfere with living their truth, expressing their love, and embodying their passion.

Drawing from two decades of experience and training, she combines expert psychotherapy, coaching and mentoring with Constellations and practical rituals to help free clients from the traps of limiting beliefs, patterns and habits. Emily holds a Masters of Social Work from the University of Minnesota and is certified in multiple therapeutic modalities including Systemic Family Constellations, Core Energetics, Energy Medicine, Yoga and the Synergy of Sound Healing, Compassionate Spirit Release, ADHD treatment, and Women’s Mystery Traditions. She has presented at the Omega Institute, Kripalu, the North American Systemic Constellations Conference and served on the faculty of the North American Constellation Intensive. In addition to her private practice, she regularly travels throughout the US and internationally, including presenting training and workshops in Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Hawaii, Hungary, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Brazil. 

Emily’s the most talented and skilled practitioner of this work that I’ve ever met. When we work together we can do something beyond what we can do individually.
—Dan Cohen, Co-Founder of Seeing With Your Heart

Dan’s clinical practice specializes in helping individuals, couples and families heal the effects of inherited trauma and fulfill their desires for having more love and deeper impact in their lives. He has a strong interest in healing generational trauma inherited from war, genocide and the legacy of slavery. Combining a near-encyclopedic knowledge of world history, mythology and culture with an uncanny psychic awareness, Dan offers clients profound and transformative healing while expanding understanding and restoring peace of mind.

Prior to obtaining a PhD in psychology and training with Bert Hellinger as a Constellations facilitator, Dan was internationally known for his work in violence prevention and conflict resolution. A former Strategic Planning consultant for the Director of the Los Alamos Laboratory, he pivoted away from weapons’ research to become a founding member of the City of Cambridge Peace Commission in 1981. For 40 years, he has dived deep to understand the origins of violent and hostile urges that darken the human heart. 

Since 2000, he has become a leading voice for incorporating personal, ancestral and spirit consciousness into therapeutic practices. Dan Cohen holds a PhD in psychology from Saybrook University and an MBA from Boston University. He is author of I Carry Your Heart in My Heart: Family Constellations in Prison and numerous scholarly articles and book chapters. Dan has led Seeing with Your Heart workshops and training courses in 18 countries in Europe, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, South America and throughout the United States.

Working with Dan, things shift—fast. We dive into the depths of consciousness, travel between the worlds, and create transformation beyond comprehension.  This works. It works in ways that nothing has ever worked before.
—Emily Blefeld, Co-Founder of Seeing With Your Heart

Emily and Dan work from the most transparent and vulnerable place that I have experienced with any program leaders. They create a beautiful space which is totally inclusive and inviting. They give each other the space to be completely expressed and that radiates out to the groups they facilitate allowing each person to feel seen and known. — Lori Wells
