ENERGY MEDICINE MEETS PSYCHO-DYNAMIC PROCESS
Rising Fire provides the tools, teachings and support that lead our students and healing clients to Radical Aliveness. This is the ability to return to balance after any storm … and to have the experience to “do it scared” when necessary. This approach heightens personal work with a skillful, strong, practical awareness – an emotional intelligence – for daily life.
Our staff has been offering high-quality programs in the US and internationally since 1986 and opened the healing center in Portland, Oregon in 2013.
- Weekly Shamanic Practices Class
- Healing Sessions

Rising Fire was created to awaken the brilliance of Radical Aliveness in ourselves and others by:
- creating safe, sacred space
- providing transformational teachings, tools and practices
- guiding the work with our passion and full presence
- sparking earth-consciousness in our work and community
Join us to experience physical, emotional and relational healing … the basis for lasting, vital wellness.
Who We Are
Rising Fire is the dream child of Ellyn Rosenthal, MA and Rosemary Beam
In 2012 Rosenthal and Beam had already been working together for 2 years and decided to create a business together. Elle moved from New York to Portland, Oregon where Rosemary had a thriving community and healing practice of 10 years. This labor of love, the creation of Rising Fire went live March 2013.
Beam and Rosenthal are powerful healers, teachers and workshop facilitators working in the Peruvian tradition. Experienced leaders, they integrate shamanic work with Mystery Teachings from many traditions, including Buddhist dharma, Native North American influences, European shamanism and the current understandings of non-duality. They currently study with A.H. Almaas, the pen name of A. Hameed Ali, and his senior teacher’s. Rosemary and Elle are known for their compassionate and honest approach that facilitates deep personal transformation and expanded awareness.
In 2018 Rosemary purchased Rising Fire from Elle and continues the work at her calling. Elle currently lives off the grid in remote British Columbia, Canada with her husband.
Where We Are
Our healing center is located in northeast Portland, Oregon. We are on the corner of 19th and NE Alberta Street, placing us in the hub of the Alberta Arts District. Alberta Street is a vibrant neighborhood business district known for its individuality and quirky Portland style. Full of independently owned stores, art galleries, restaurants, and coffee shops, Alberta Street is bursting with life and energy.
In a spacious office building, our healing rooms accommodate small groups for sessions and classes. We have a reception area, small classroom, and three treatment rooms. Events and classes that require more space are held at off-site locations. If the event is held at a different venue it will be clearly marked in the class description. We periodically travel overseas for retreats, journeys, and expeditions.
