Extended Bio

Spiritual Teacher, Mentor, BodyTalk Practitioner, Shambhala Mutlidimensional Reiki Healer, Master Success Coach, and author Heather Strang began her journey of Soul Alignment when she left her practical, corporate job in Marketing and Public Relations over 9 years ago—with all of its bonuses, benefits, and cash—to follow her lifelong dream of being a writer, and started up her own business as a freelance journalist. After enrolling in, thriving, and graduating summa cum laude from Portland State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in English and Women’s Studies, Heather felt she had to do more than write news reports, dining reviews, and lifestyle pieces to help make the world a better place. She quickly became a certified Master Success Coach and spent two years coaching more than 500 adult students through InsideTrack while still writing.

 

But even that wasn’t enough. Her body decided to tell her she had to do more in this lifetime, and the removal of an ovarian cystic tumor, weekly visits to a naturopath, acupuncturist, massage therapist, therapist, and Coach would not be enough. Heather was gaunt, had zero energy, and felt helpless. At the suggestion of a friend, Heather took a drastic step towards healing—booking a two and a half week trip to a remote Brazilian village and received psychic surgery from renowned healer, John of God.

 

Her life would never be the same.

 

Shortly after, Heather packed up everything, moved to Kauai, became Reiki attuned and wrote her first book, Anatomy of the Heart: Love Poems. There, she meditated daily and received regular healing sessions—trying on as many different forms of healing as possible—knowing she desired to share the healing-work with others, not only through the power of words, but also hands-on.

 

While back in Oregon to promote her book, Heather had another health crisis and hit the wall again. While contemplating returning to Brazil, another friend suggested BodyTalk. During her first session, Heather knew she had to learn the system and share it with others. She signed up for the training the following week.

 

Today, Heather facilitates a host of soul-alignment courses and events to support individuals in claiming the power deep within their own bodies to create an abundant and sexy life, has written three spiritual romance novels—The Quest: A Tale of Desire & Magic (currently being optioned as a feature-length film), Following Bliss and And Then It Was You —has been a featured speaker at the largest spiritual bookstore in North America—Banyen Books and Sound—as well as the largest metaphysical bookstore in the United States—New Renaissance Bookshop, and shares love, joy, and abundance with anyone she comes into contact with.

RAVES AND REVIEWS

 

Book Reviews for The Quest: a Tale of Desire & Magic:

The Quest takes you on a journey deep within, asking you to honor your own guidance above all else and reminds us that when we follow Spirit and work with the laws of the Universe miracles abound. A must-read for any Spirit Junkie on the path!” – Gabrielle Bernstein, New York Times bestselling author of Miracles Now

“In The Quest, one is reminded that the path to the Beloved is illuminated by one’s own inner guidance and connection to the soul – nothing else can replace that. It’s a beautiful message for those called to unite with their Beloved and who enjoy a wild, sexy read!”
Anaiya Sophia, author of Sacred Sexual Union and The Rose Knight

“I love a book that makes me laugh and inspires me to honor the truth I feel within. The Quest does all of this and more. It artfully encourages us to follow what we know to be true – that we have the answers within. The Quest is a story anyone can relate to and it leads us to knowing that when all is said and done – our truth is all that matters.”
James F. Twyman, NY Times bestselling author and Peace Troubadour

The Quest is a beautiful and inspiring story with strong characters and a storyline that will hook you from the beginning! I love a good love story and this was a fabulous one. I can’t wait to see it on the big screen!
Cari Kamm, author of For Internal Use Only

“The way Heather Strang writes about love makes you believe in love and want to pursue love. I can’t think of anything more important a novel can accomplish in a world that desperately needs more people in love.”
Matt Love, author of The Far Out Story of Vortex 1

“What a wonderful ode to the magic and mystery of love, and the sweet blessings that await us when we live from our heart and follow our intuition. Beautiful!!” – Amanda, Book Review on Amazon.com

“I finished the novel over a weekend. It was a beautiful and inspiring story with strong characters and a storyline that will hook you from the beginning! I love a good love story and this was a fabulous one! Bravo to this author! I can’t wait to see it on the big screen!” – Jojo, Book Review on Amazon.com

 

Book Reviews for Following Bliss:

“This book is so fun, juicy, sexy, spiritual and amazing to read. I loved it!! It gave me one of those very special feelings that you only get every once in a while like while you are watching a magical sunset or blissed out in meditation. There is a very special energy to this book…This book really warms the heart and reminds one of the important things in life. I smiled while reading it and could not put it down. I did one of those crazy things and stayed up very late for 2 nights in a row as I just couldn’t stop reading it.” – Alove, Book Review on Amazon.com

“This book was the first e-book I have ever read. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end! It made me giggle, it aroused me, it brought tears. I welled up with emotions for the beauty of life that is inspired by the ideals the characters strive to find in their lives and embody in their choices – grace, love, joy, peace, truth, soul authenticity! If the goal of this book was to inspire a person to be their best self and to open their heart to love in a world where we are shown to defend and protect ourselves from vulnerability and pain, then this little e-book is the perfect antidote to the jaded environment we sometimes find around us. Thank you Heather for your offering of goodwill!” – DrBodyTalk, Book Review on Amazon.com

 

Raves from Clients of Heather Strang:

“I’ve been working with Heather consistently for the last 7 months. I can’t tell you what a difference she has made in my life! In this short time, I’ve been able to let go of anger and resentment, forgiven family members for past pain and betrayals, forgiven myself for hanging onto that pain, cleared physical ailments, I am experiencing a level of whole-body healing I’ve needed for a very long time, discovered and claimed my Life’s Purpose and realized (on the heart level, finally!) that true Happiness lies within me and that I can choose to be Happy every day and amazing things will manifest as a result. My life has expanded so much in such a short amount of time and I could not have experienced this without Heather.” – K.S., 32

“I honestly didn’t think it was possible to change my view of life before Heather Strang. I am so grateful for this experience!” – M.M., 58

“Heather is a compassionate and intuitive healer. My sessions with her give me the insight to go to the next level in my career and home life, and I am so grateful. I have a great clarity in body and spirit, and I am able to release fears that no longer serve me. This has helped me to fully embrace the life I have always wanted to lead! I highly recommend the joyous life that comes from searching into the depths of your soul to find true purpose and meaning in walking your individual spiritual path. Heather will help anyone accomplish this!” – R.P., 35
