Shamanic Fire Cleanse, Water Ceremony
Community Prayer Circle
- WELCOME TO THE CIRCLE -
Come share in this full moon dance & shamanic ceremony with Heather...
In dance and in ceremony, in our bodies and in our hearts, we move through our joys and our pains, invite a new tomorrow, and connect in the sacred circle. We dance for community, we dance for ourselves.
DANCE * SHAKE IT OUT * CONNECT
We'll be focusing on balancing the fire element (the masculine, the penetrating) and the water element (the feminine, emotional) within ourselves and on the planet. Get ready to dive deep, get clean and come out feeling more connected and refreshed.
In this Circle, we conduct…

WHAT IS “ECSTATIC DANCE”?
Ecstatic Dance is a style of movement that invites you to dance freely, openly, honestly – within your entire being – and in sacred ways with others. It is normally done with the whole group starting together, ending together and sharing, and staying for the entire dance. You are invited to sit in silence, run around like a wild banshee, shake and gyrate, dance alone or dance with others. It is always meant to be a sacred personal journey, taking you through a variety of sounds and rhythms, emotions & physical sensations, with Heather as Shamanic Guide & Muse during your dance.
Get ready for a deep clean!
In this ceremony, Heather will use shamanic sound, nature elements and ritual.
WHAT IS SHAMANISM?
Shamanism is an ancient spiritual practice facilitated by a “shaman”. A shaman usually uses SOUND (song/chanting, drum, rattle, bowl, flute), nature medicines and sacred ritual/dance/ceremony to help people “connect” with other dimensions and their “higher selves”. This is done for the healing and growth of individuals and the entire community. A shaman does not “choose” his path, it “chooses” him through a series of initiations, intensive life lessons and spirit visitations.
Heather Straube is a Shamanic Priestess of the Divine & Psychic Life Coach serving the Portland area. She just returned from living and sharing the medicine in Portugal for 3 years & offers up her deep medicine dances with you all.
