Thank you for finding your way here to the Sacred Grove. My name is Erin Shrader, renamed Erys Pyrfloris through my work with the plants, and it is my honor to hold this portal to another way of being human.
In short, I am a licensed Registered Nurse as well as a Registered Yoga Teacher, Certified Spiritual Director, Master Level Reiki Teacher, and Herbalist. I am mother to two children, Ashlyn and Torrin, and a wife to Mike, my high school sweetheart. We tend 3.5 acres of degraded forest, and raise a flock of chickens as well as our dogs Mia and Mac and our three cats Bodhi, Lilith and Mandragora.
I have practiced earth-based religions for over 25 years, and have been initiated into the practice of magick since 2001. I am currently an elder priestess of the Indigo Hearth Coven and a Druid following the ways of OBOD and the AODA.
I am deeply grateful to all of my teachers, and there are so many. I am sure there will be many more.
To anyone who considers me a teacher, I am grateful for your trust and companionship. You are certainly a teacher to me, too.
Through all of my work as a nurse and healer, and in my personal life, I have found that our true resilience and strength don't come from what we have as an individual, but from how we belong to each other. We heal when we feel seen, appreciated, supported and loved. When these needs are met, we can offer healing and wholeness to others.
I hope that my work will help us belong to ourselves, to one another, and to the world around us.
My priority is to care for myself and my family well and fully, so that I am healthy and clear and able to give my best to my clients. I am a community health nurse at heart. That means that I value education, prevention, relationships, and the health of the environment. I use many different modalities in my 1:1 work with clients, including yoga, meditation, herbalism, spiritual direction, and review of pharmaceutical medications. I will advocate for my clients with their healthcare providers, helping to answer difficult questions and giving guidance on navigating the labyrinth of the healthcare system.
In addition to 1:1 work and classes, I also lead retreats and workshops.
I hope you will join me for a class, or a training, or a plant walk, or a cup of tea. If you are looking for an advocate and companion on your journey to wellness and wholeness, I am currently seeing clients 1:1 via Zoom or in person at Symmetry Holistic Collective in downtown York, PA.
