Full Buck Moon Ceremony

  • Misfit Studio 761 Queen St. West, 3rd Floor Toronto, ON M6J 1G1 Canada (map)


An evening of healing our masculine sides, as we raise our collective frequency honouring the medicine of the full moon and the deer totem.

Healers! Alchemists! Empaths! Lightworkers of the World! And just generally cool vibrant souls! YOU are called to gather to lift the frequency of your hearts, bodies and souls... and as we do so, raise the vibe of our community of Toronto.


Join us for an incredible evening celebrating the Full Buck Moon and also a Total Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Aquarius. 

The evening will be guided by Energy Medicine Woman, Shelly Burton, who if you haven't worked with, is a MUST EXPERIENCE in Toronto. She will be supported by the INCREDIBLE Friday Night Drummers bringing pure African rhythms and soul into the sacred circle. An amazing team of Samhara Reiki™ Practitioners will create a supportive and welcoming environment to step into. 

Confidentiality will be maintained for anything shared in the group. Sharing is optional.

Full moons are a time when emotions surface to clear. This moon exerts a stronger pull on the waters of the Earth, and raises the tides. We are mostly water, and in many Native American traditions the water is associated with the emotional body. So the full moon is exerting a stronger pull on our emotional body, bringing what needs to clear to surface.

So come heal with us, because emotions will be rising up to the surface, making you feel tired, frustrated, sad or something mega... and the early bird rate is the deal you want to snag.

Read more about "How the moon effects you + what you can do about it" here.



The Buck Moon was named by many Native American tribes because this is the time that the buck's antlers begin to grow. Deers hold the energy of gentleness. It is also called the Thunder Moon, for the frequent thunderstorms that occur during the month. Thunder and lightening are said to be the result of Mother Earth and Father Sky making love.

This month is also a Total Lunar Eclipse, which many refer to as a Blood Moon, because of the red hue the moon takes on during a full lunar eclipse. Are you ready for this?

Shelly Burton, Founder of Samhara Energy Medicine™ and Oxford University trained medical anthropologist, will be guiding the ceremony. Shelly's three plus years of running a full-time Reiki practice, and after spending eight years healing a devastating injury, have taught her how to shift your life from the inside out. She is here to help you release old beliefs that have hindered your blossoming, and cross the threshold into your new comforting reality.  Dreams can happen. They take time. She's got your back.

Burton holds a Masters in Medical Anthropology from Oxford University and an Honours B.Sc. in Biomedical Science from the University of Guelph. She is a highly sought after practitioner who has hosted workshops at the prestigious Soho Farmhouse in the UK, and has a cast of worldwide clients from New York to Los Angeles, London to Paris.


Shelly will be supported by three of the incredible Friday Night Drummers, including Goddess Kimberley who is holding down the bass rhythms on the big drums (the dununs) in the clip below! Be prepared to move to their beautiful and intricate grooves.

Truly amazing! Being in the presence of conscious, alive and genuine women is so deeply supportive and nourishing. If you’ve contemplated attending a full moon circle, trust the call and go for it. Shelly creates a beautiful space to explore the self on many levels. A-ho!
