Yaya Erin Rivera Merriman is a Plant Spirit Medicine Practitioner, Ritualist, Goddess Scholar, Mother and Artist. Best known as the director of Active Culture Family, Erin walks a path of community stewardship and service to Gaia through her rolls as lead facilitator of the Medicine Mandala Green Magic Apprenticeship program, and as Priestess of Bridge Temple, a remote off-grid mystery school, healing sanctuary, culture farm, and library of earth magic located on sacred land in the Cleveland National Forest of San Diego, CA

Medicine Priestess.  Even just saying those words feels so gentle and healing to me and I think gentle and healing is a perfect way to describe my guest on The Priestess Podcast today Yaya Erin Rivera Merriman.  Erin has been a true plant medicine woman since she was a child and as she explains to us in this episode she comes from a long cultural line of family who have done the same. Erin is particularly passionate about plant medicine as a healing tool for those who have experienced bullying or emotional trauma, and she shares with us the special magic of her off-grid modern mystery school and her hopes, dreams and desires for that for the future.
