— The Empowered Empath and Sage Soul —
Step into the Mystery. Amplify Your Vibration. Sow Your Intentions. Live Your Legacy.

In the wake of the global pandemic, many heart-centered, soul-inspired individuals are reconnecting with their own unique gift of life and questioning how to align with their fullest expression and purpose, release the conditioning that keeps them stuck, and open to their deeper desires. If such existential inquiries are surfacing in the spiral of your being, may you realize this life as an invitation.  This human body as your portal.   Truth as your compass.  And the family and time you were born into – even if extremely painful – as the training ground for your soul’s evolution.  You didn’t arrive on this Earth, in this time, to shrink away from the embers of your deepest knowing, to dim your light, or doubt your soul.

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 5-month program is calling…

* Empowered empaths, who see, know, feel and/or hear the unspoken truths of the living and unresolved consciousness of the dead, yet sometimes struggle with small talk, commitment, and feeling energetically 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 fear of being “found out” or criticized 

* 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 sense of security

* Mystics, intuitives and healers who powerfully inspire, support, and tend their family and communities, while concealing their altars, tarot cards, and spiritual books, offering their services for free, or overlooking their own need for tending

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’ offerings, supporting clients, 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 soul-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, skilled graduates of the program, 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 program as she is a guru and a jewel and I’m not ready to give her up! ~ Jill Moretti, APRN

Online Group Gatherings Begin on June 20, 2022
16 Weekly Online Group Gatherings for Teaching, Experiential Exercises, and Systemic Constellations (Mondays 12:00-2:30 PM Eastern or 7:00-9:30 PM Eastern, and if a 3rd Cohort Forms Tuesdays from 3:00-5:30 PM Eastern)

Over the course of 5 months, we will gather weekly as a group with Emily and your unique cohort of empowered empaths and sage souls.  All 16 gatherings will include “tuning-in”, systemic experiential process, and 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. All participants are experienced in some way (workshops, trainings, sessions, online courses, etc.) with a systemic perspective and approach to ancestral healing.

3 Online Group Gatherings for Constellation Coaching and Mentoring, Intuitive Guidance and Manifestation Support with Emily Blefeld, LICSW & Empowered Empath and Sage Soul Graduate Facilitators (8/4, 9/8, & 11/3 from 11-1:30pm EST)

Receive constellation coaching, mentoring, intuitive guidance, and accountability support from Emily and skilled Empowered Empath and Sage Soul graduate facilitators.  Participants will be invited to come with current challenges, questions, or desire to deepen their integration of the weekly teachings.  Emily, facilitators, and participants will access the phenomenological field through individual and group 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. 

2 Private Systemic Constellation Sessions (one with Dan Cohen, PhD & another with Michelle Bias, MA)

Through a private Systemic Constellation, 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. You will be guided 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 emergence. 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. 

Individual Emotional Reconnection and Release Session with Sarah Rehfuss Bastian, MS

Through Emotional Reconnection and Release you will connect with and clear disowned, and unresolved emotions in your body, which are keeping you from achieving the success you want, such as healthy relationships, financial abundance, and good health. Due to cultural, familial or religious beliefs, emotions often become suppressed and stored in your cells, influencing your health and intentions in life. Based on the knowledge and use of acupuncture meridians and applied kinesiology, Sarah will guide you through reconnection and release techniques such as Neuro-Emotional Technique, Healing Movements, and Mental Field Therapy, to help you actualize your potential. 

Desire Catalyst Session with Elise Bish
It’s only when we follow the deep pulse of desire within us that we can come into our fullest expression of self. 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. Science-based, pleasure-focused knowledge meets intuitive body-based practices to support and empower your desires and intentions. In your desire catalyst session you will…
  • work together to find those desires within you that need attention and connection.
  • release old beliefs that keep you stuck in patterns of shame and disconnection.
  • cultivate an inspired relationship to your body, sexuality, and sensual self.
  • awaken your 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.
I love sharing inspiring teachers, mentors, and healers and find it hugely beneficial to weave the knowledge, experience, and voice of way-showers into our collective tapestry.  Guest teachers will offer workshops to you and our shared community.  All workshops will be recorded in the event you are not able to attend.  
Seeing with Your Heart Workshop on Collective or Archetypal Themes Alive in the Group with Dan Cohen, PhD & Emily Blefeld, LICSW

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 this transformational workshop, 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. 

Balancing Your Five Energy Bodies Workshop with Sarah Rehfuss Bastian, MA

Einstein declared that “Everything is energy,” and your physical body and its subtle energy bodies are no exception! Ideally the energy between each of these bodies interacts and informs the other in every moment offering you increased health, energy, clarity, intuition and connection. Sometimes, though, the interrelationship between these bodies can be interrupted causing challenges that affect your overall health and well-being.

This workshop will explore the five main energy bodies, their functions, and things that might disrupt them. Through exercises and techniques you will learn simple ways to begin to balance each of your energy bodies.

Embodied Desire Workshop with Elise Bish

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.

Taking Our Place & Taking Up Space Workshop with Michelle Bias, MA

Our family of origin serves as the template for how we engage in our relationships and navigate our careers, desires, and passions. What we reject in our parents, we reject in ourselves. Family Constellations teach us that the “right place is taken, not given.” Taking our place in the family system is about inclusion –  including everyone, even those deemed “bad and not worthy.” It deeply benefits us to include the parts of ourselves that are connected to our parents and ancestors. If we can be curious about what it might look like if we were to acknowledge, accept, and agree to how life has come to us, then perhaps we can take our place in our family system and then begin to take up space in all the ways we dream about for our lives. If not, then we play small because we miss a vital aspect of life – our belonging.

Our original belonging is the programming that is being played out in our “adult” lives. Internally, we sometimes aren’t at peace with our family of origin. In that case, we tend to experience a plethora of stances such as stuckness, overwhelm, confusion, procrastination, inability to connect, retraction, anxiety – just to name a few. When our original programming is activated, we react to our lives rather than respond. Reactivity belongs to the small space of childhood, and many times, we are “child-adults” attempting to live an adult life.  In this workshop we will look at our primary belonging and the childhood programs still running our adult lives.

Synergy of Sound, Oral Transmission & Energy Medicine Workshop with Lisa Murphy, LMT, DD, HP, RMT, TBW, ERYT

In this workshop, participants will learn practices that support you with harmonizing word, deed and action.

A journey with Emily is a journey home to a more powerful, alive and joyous version of yourself. She is one of the most powerful , magical people I know, and if you let her she will weave that power and magic into your life too. I would highly recommend doing this course with her, especially if you want to bring work into the world that is more aligned with yourself, the earth and spirit. Emily will show you the tools and the way, because she embodies what she teaches. Doing this course will also connect you to other magical people, with whom you can practice the new skills and who will support you along the way. ~ Nelly Henzler, Qi gong and Nei gong Teacher
