About Me

Hi, I’m Erin LaFaive, Master Herbalist and Plant Priestess

I’ve been studying and practicing nature spirituality for decades. I believe there are multiple ways to use and experience plant life including the Plant Priestess perspective.

Since my days of gardening as a child in Wisconsin, I’ve always been captivated by plants. They soothed me in times of trouble. They were always there for me. It’s as if I could sense thier encouragement.

The hidden knowledge and versatility of plant life is astounding. During my teen years, I began my self-studies in herbalism – and like you, I was passionate about the topic, but overwhelmed with the information and a bit lost (and lonely) about how to continue.

As a Plant Priestess, my passion is bringing us back to the sacred world of plants.

I formalized my herbalism training with Gigi Stafne of Green Wisdom School of Natural and Botanical Medicine. I also earned a bachelor degree in Geography with an emphasis in Natural Resources Managment and then on to earn a master degree in Environmental Studies.

I’ve worked in three greenhouses learning to cultivate and care for herbs, vegetables, shrubs, and trees. Also, I’ve taught 1000s of people of all ages about herbalism, horticulture, and environmental subjects for well over 10 years.

I worked for Circle Santuary, interned with  Abiinooji Aki, and experienced other ways of knowing through ceremony, ritual, sacred fire circles, sweatlodges, and other activities.
