chrissie fire-mane



Chrissie Fire Mane has been facilitating Empathic Communication sessions for 13 years and amongst other modalities that she offers, believes it to be the most efficient form of healing and with the longest-lasting results.

Based on the truth that every single one of us has a deep story to tell, these sessions allow a person to unravel their heart to the deepest places, unearthing hidden and suppressed trauma or emotional charge.

The energy is then transformed through homeopathy, through Chrissie 'matching' the energy, fully acknowledging through her own heart the emotions experienced in yours.

There is no advising, no counsel, no answers given. Simply, the being comes to their own awareness change when asked the right questions, when allowed the safest of spaces to express everything that needs to be expressed.

And with awareness change, there comes understanding and therefore true healing.


$80 per hour - payment plans available.

Each session goes between 2 - 3 hours.


Tuesdays 11am - 8pm

monthly new moon ritual

The monthly lunar cycle gives you many chances to do rituals to mark a personal turning point or let go. At the New Moon, you can go into the dark and be symbolically reborn. New Moon rituals help you summon your whole Self, and in that magic moment, commit to intentions being fully supported by fellow brothers and sisters weaving our magic together.

A New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle, a fresh start in it’s cycle of waxing and waning. During this time the Moon is empty and receptive and full of potential. This is an optimum time to plant seeds of intentions for what you wish to manifest in your life.

Most of us, live our lives so disconnected from the Earth, and devoid of any kind of ritual that creates the space for us to connect. So the New Moon provides us with an opportunity to take the time to create SACRED SPACE for ourselves. It’s essential. We all contain the power to manifest our hopes and dream, our personal resolve. Wicca practices can help you stand in your true power and command the new using the elements, directions and calling on our innate wisdom.

There is something so powerful when we come together to support each other on our journey, in their hopes and dreams. We are healed, we are nurtured, we feel comforted and understood. When we share sacred space together we magnify the power of our intentions and we energetically create a web of support for not only our circle of brother and sisters but with people everywhere.

New Moon rituals are held on the following dates for 2017 at Sat Nam Institute.

Wednesday 20th September 8pm - 9:30pm

Thursday 19th October 8pm - 9:30pm

Saturday 18th November 7pm - 8:30pm

Monday 18th December 8pm - 9:30pm


move to the moon

An invitation for sisters of all ages to connect, flow and move together each full moon using the expression of dance to feel connected to self, empowered, more present and connected to our bodies.


This dance journey begins with meditation using breath and connection to movement enabling us to collectively drop into our heart space, safely and comfortably. The dance journey will be semi guided with simple movements and techniques to help open the body and release trapped stories and energy that we hold in our bodies both consciously and unconsciously. 

You can expect lots of booty shaking and chest popping with the second part of the journey being completely freestyle - the music progresses into tribal epicness so we can just let go and let our own unique expression flow. We will close the journey with a beautiful circle and grounding experience to leave you connected to the divine woman you are. Feeling more confident and using the Full Moons energy to bring your hopes and dreams to fruition.

I feel so deeply honoured to be holding this space for all you beautiful sisters, come join me on the dance floor where our hearts meet within the beat and we move our bodies, harnessing Full Moon magick into every part of our being and become more present with our innate wisdom and luscious divine selves – Suebee x

Friday 6th October 6:30pm - 8:30pm
