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