Emily Blefeld, LICSW is a psychotherapist, Systemic Family Constellations trainer, and co-founder of Seeing with Your Heart. Emily combines her knowledge of the hidden pathways of consciousness with scientifically validated clinical modalities, sacred ceremony, and wisdom traditions. Her work is inspired by the call of the Earth for an end to violence, oppression of the sacred feminine, and repression of human sexuality. Her presentations and experiential processes invite participants to access their hearts as an organ of perception and amplify their bodies’ natural capacity to perceive and integrate the resonance that link family members across distances of migration and generations. The old paradigms, outdated narratives, and ancient codes that hold us back are dismantled and the process of remembering, awakening, and opening to wholeness begins. A Masters graduate of the University of Minnesota, Emily serves on the faculty of the North American Systemic Constellations Intensive and has presented at the Omega Institute, Kripalu, and the 2013 and 2015 U.S. Systemic Constellation Conferences.

Brains at Play! Using Neuroscience in Constellations to Resolve Blocks to Self-Love and Self-Care
Sarah Peyton, international speaker and facilitator, has a passion for weaving together neuroscience knowledge and experiences of healing that unify people with their brains and bodies. Sarah makes interpersonal neurobiology research available for our embodied brains to use in living at peace with ourselves.
Funny, touching, and filled with personal stories and up-to-date research on our nervous systems and how they interact with each other, her presentations change lives and invite self-acceptance and self-compassion. Sarah offers healing experiences of hearing ourselves and others deeply (using the precision and resonant language that come alive in the long-term study of nonviolent communication) and three-dimensional body-centered explorations of families over generations (through family constellation work.) Sarah is a CNVC Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication; an experienced facilitator of Family Constellations and speaks and writes internationally on the confluence of NVC, Systemic Constellations, and the world of neuroscience research.
She has been a guest lecturer at the International Systemic Constellations Association's (ISCA) intensive at Bernried, Germany; a regular contributor to the journal of the Global Association of Interpersonal Neurobiology Studies (GAINS); and contributor to The Knowing Field journal.
