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

I’ve been where you are today – overwhelmed, unsure what to focus on first, lonely in this endeavor  – you don’t have to study alone! (Or be overwhelmed any longer!).

Now, you can have access to the methods I created to help increase my speed and efficiency of learning and utilizing herbal knowledge.

Since my days of gardening as a child in Wisconsin, I’ve always been captivated by plants. 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.

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.

They soothed me in times of trouble. They were always there for me. It’s as if I could sense their encouragement.

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 Management 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 thousands of people of all ages about herbalism, horticulture, and environmental subjects for well over 10 years.

I worked for a federally recognized shamanic wiccan church for six months, interned with a cultural healing center with a tribal nation, and experienced other ways of knowing through ceremony, ritual, sacred fire circles, sweatlodges, and other activities.

As a Herbalist & Plant Priestess, my passion is using my knowledge of herbs to help others.

When you reconnect to plants, you reconnect to yourself. And I want you to be able to enjoy everything that herbalism has to offer – including that reconnection, better health, and finally being able to answer your calling easily.

My hope is I can gift you a new process, understanding, and self-confidence with your herbal path.

I took Erin’s online plant spirit medicine class. It was easy to follow for someone who is new to herbs and very informative. Erin made learning about herbs easy and fun. I loved the easy-to-use forms and as an Aromatherapist I want to use the forms in my work. I would highly recommend taking Erin’s classes and personally look forward to more Bethany Williamson

    Erin LaFaive’s Plant Spirit Medicine course is a refreshing change from many other herbalism courses I’ve taken. Her love of plant medicine and gentle encouragement to students is wonderful. The printouts and resources she offers are excellent in keeping my herbal studies organized. What I love most about this course is that it gets into more than just the scientific information of plants. Respecting nature, getting to know the plants you’re working with, learning to become aware of, and honoring, the energy and essence of the plants…this is an important part of Plant Spirit Medicine, and Erin encourages it in each lesson. I will definitely be taking more courses from Erin in the future! Lisa

    I’ve have totally had my life changed by this course.
