The wave of the COVID-19 global pandemic has hit like a tsunami crashing through a low-lying village. With our health, prosperity, and freedom imperiled and everyday routines drastically changed, we naturally find ourselves reconnecting with our own unique gift of life. Many are questioning how to align with their fullest expression and purpose and pivot in the pandemic. You didn’t arrive on this Earth, in this time, to shrink away from the embers of your deepest truths, to dim your light, or doubt your soul. This life is your invitation. This human body is your portal. Truth is your compass. The family and time you were born into – even if extremely painful – is the training ground for your soul’s evolution.
My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times. Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. ~ Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Now more than ever humanity and the Earth need your soul on deck. We all have stories as to why we haven’t fully arrived to this life or answered the call of our heart, and we also know there’s a deeper truth to every story, especially those we tell ourselves.
All souls on deck! This 4-month program is calling…
* Empowered empaths, who see, know, feel and hear the unspoken truths of the living and unresolved consciousness of the dead, yet sometimes struggle with small talk, self-care, commitment, and feeling emotionally hijacked
* Witches, alchemists, and shamans who are fiery cauldrons, kicking out stars and magically wielding a new way, but muffle their voice and dim their blazing luminosity to resist visibility in terror of being “found out” or criticized
* Mystics, intuitives and healers who powerfully inspire, support, and tend their family and communities, while hiding their altars, tarot cards, and spiritual books in their homes, offering their services for free, and overlooking their own need for tending
* Mediums, family constellators, herbalists, therapists, writers, coaches, lawyers, artists, and everything in-between who are ready to break-free and unleash their legacy, but are loyal to a role, profession, license, relationship, or false sense of security
Your body and soul are here for this, for a reason, divinely inspired and sourced, whether you know it yet or not. There’s a universal invitation to release the frenzied, overwhelmed, and disorganized avalanche of modern living and to begin the work of taking care of yourself and aligning with your soul’s calling.
If you are finding yourself “tuned-in” to others’ virtual offerings, scrolling through newsfeeds on Facebook and Instagram, supporting friends and family’s needs, and thinking about, but neglecting your own needs, projects and desires … this program is for you.
This sacred circle is a place for you to be met and seen. To hear the truths of the universe channeling through you. To acknowledge the seeds that drip from your heart regenerating the earth and all beings you touch.
We come together to support empaths, healers, and mystics to:
* Explore the threads of your existence and uncover the mystery of who you are and why you are here
* Develop self-trust to step into your gifts and confidence to use your voice
* Create daily, weekly, and monthly practices for self-care, everyday life, and the sacred tasks that help you actualize your intentions
* Break ground on your projects, dreams and deepest desires in a way that inspires and supports you
* Enhance your intuition, learn to navigate the dimensions, and channel insights from beyond that elevate your life and others
* Receive high-level mentoring from Emily and your online cohort for healthy, balanced manifestation and soul care
The Empowered Empath and Sage Soul course offered by Emily Blefeld has changed my life, and I can recommend it without hesitation. As a therapist, I knew there was a deep-seated and painful issue getting in the way of realizing my deepest desire, to become a more intuitive healer, but I wasn’t able to clarify and address it until I met Emily. I first did constellation work with Emily and Dan Cohen, her partner, which was very powerful. A year later when I received an invitation to join Emily, I jumped at it, and she has exceeded all expectations. Every class was a gift, and the amount and quality of her online teachings left me inspired and amazed. Emily occasionally invited Dan in for constellation work and utilized other experts to add depth and meaning to the course. I am gratified to be operating at a higher level in my work and I’ve come to a place of forgiveness in my personal life which has set me free! I’ve also found a group of like-minded individuals who can understand and support me on my path, which is invaluable. I plan to continue with Emily in a monthly mentoring session as she is a guru and a jewel and I’m not ready to give her up! ~ Jill Moretti, APRN
Over the course of 4 months, we will gather weekly as a group with Emily and occasional workshop faculty of the Empowered Empath and Sage Soul Program. All 16 group gatherings will include “tuning-in”, systemic experiential process, and intuitive mentoring along with teaching on practices for empath-oriented self, soul, and lineal care, enhancing intuition and psychic perception, and approaching tasks that support your soul’s evolution in a way that grounds ideas into everyday reality and manifestation. The group size will be limited to 24 people. All participants are experienced in some way (workshops, trainings, sessions, online courses, etc.) with a systemic perspective and approach to ancestral healing.
Twice a month we will gather for group constellation coaching, mentoring, intuitive guidance, and accountability support with Emily and your fellow empowered empaths and sage souls. Participants will be invited to come with current challenges, questions, or desire to deepen their integration of the weekly teachings. Emily and participants will access the phenomenological field through constellations, mediumship, and psychic perception to support participants in identifying and releasing patterns or beliefs that keep them stuck and stepping powerfully into their soul’s evolution and life’s purpose.
Through a private Systemic Constellation with Dan, you will access your body’s natural capacity to perceive and integrate the ordinary, ancestral and spiritual dimensions of consciousness that are at the core of what it means to be you. Dan guides you to clarify your desires, crystallize your intentions, step to your edge, and move beyond. In this transformative process, you will greet the resistance within or around you that stands in opposition to you and your deepest intentions. The deep root of your burdens, blocks, and restraints are often inherited and remain alive in the heart of a family or soul lineage for up to seven generations. The systemic approach illuminates and clears these interferences, allowing your heart to open to nourishment from the strongest resources for life’s flourishing and nectar for pleasure, presence, and purpose.
Seeing with Your Heart means accessing your body’s evolutionary capacity to perceive and integrate the ordinary, ancestral and spiritual dimensions of consciousness that are at the core of what it means to be human. The emerging science of human consciousness reveals that many of our inner disturbances are inherited through ancestral and collective trauma.
In these transformational workshops, Emily and Dan will guide you through hidden pathways of the heart to access the depths of your existence and the most deeply embedded patterns rooted in the sorrows and suffering of past generations. In their unique process, you will gain an embodied connection with resources that will infuse your life with magic, understanding and deeper feelings of ease, flow, love, and abundance.
It’s only when we follow the deep pulse of desire within us that we can come into our fullest expression of self. You are here because you desire. You aspire for more: more love, more joy, more meaning, more realness, more pleasure. Desire is your compass through the complexities of life. But it’s super easy for what we want to be clouded by a plethora of limiting beliefs, doubts, fears, rules, and judgments. Sometimes you just need a little support to catalyze your desire. Desire can be an enigma, and it’s your most powerful resource. Elise offers a supportive, non-judgmental space to find expression, explore your truth, and gather inspiration. In your desire catalyst session you will…
- work together to find those desires within you that need attention and connection.
- gather the parts of yourself that hide in the unexplored shadows of your being, and bring them into the light of authentic expression.
- awaken your raw, wild passion and make space for it to create change.
- cultivate self-acceptance with grace so that you walk through the world with an unwavering, and deep-felt trust in yourself and your desires.
This workshop will create space for an embodied exploration of how you understand, experience, feel, and express desire and pleasure. We’ll deconstruct the most common blocks to desire and your limiting sexual beliefs, and learn body-based skills and practices to move through your pleasure barriers.
Through consciousness-raising, movement, ecstatic breathwork, and somatic exercises, you’ll reconnect to what turns you on, lights you up, and brings you joy.
When you’ve cultivated a healthy relationship to desire, you’re able to navigate everyday life with more confidence and consciousness. Understanding and expressing your desire is not only essential to creating fulfilling sexual experiences and authentic relationships, but it’s a keystone practice to living a deeply gratifying life.
In your herbal consultation, Anna will introduce the art of working with plants as partners while sourcing healing on personal and collective levels by forging a deep relationship with the natural world. Through exploratory conversation and tuning-in, Anna gains an understanding of your health history, current state of being, and intentions and provides lifestyle recommendations, suggestions of herbal allies, and custom-blended herbal supplements to support your physical, mental, and spiritual wellness. Anna’s approach invites us to shift away from the symptom-centric model of health, to drop back into connection with the ways of living on the Earth that our ancestors know, and to make space within our lives to give our bodies, minds, and spirits the resources they crave. Herbs are active on every level of the body, from cell to spirit, and they are capable of transforming our experience of how it feels to live as an embodied human on the Earth. As we heal the parts of ourselves beckoning for our attention, love and nourishment, we also help raise consciousness in that same part in the world.
Our energy systems are presently operating under the matrix of oppression. Our very own life energy is being used against us to suppress our expansion.
The tentacles of slavery, racism and assimilation…
- wrap our reproductive organs and compress our creative capacities
- are parasitic; disrupt balance in our gut, weaken our “I Am,” starve our sense of agency, sovereignty and originality
- squeeze our hearts, cause our center of electromagnetic resonance to be incoherent, keep us out of sync with our brothers & sisters and our Mother GAIA
- close our throats, strangle our self-expression, keep us silent, swallowing our words.
- weave a hood covering our third eye, making us blind, unable to discern with clarity our original and authentic orientation.
- enclose our crown, limiting the light we emit and receive, making our divinity and brilliance unrecognizable to each other
In this workshop, we will look at the ways we are putting up with the evil of racism. We will explore what Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called “the appalling silence and indifference of the good people who sit around and say, ‘Wait on time.’” Our planet’s expansion and evolution are not inevitable. We need to awaken, take a stand and find our voice for change. We are ready now. Because we are here now.
