Thank you for finding your way here to the Sacred Grove. My name is Eryn Shrader, renamed Erys Pyrfloris (Flower of Fire) through my work with the plants, and it is my honor to hold this portal to another way of being human. 

I have studied as a licensed Registered Nurse, a board certified holistic nurse, a community herbalist (Northern Appalachia School, School of Evolutionary Herbalism, Rowan & Sage, and more!), a 200hr Yoga Teacher (Create Karma), Certified Spiritual Director (Oasis Ministries), Master Level Reiki Teacher, (Reiki Blessings Academy) Novice Monk with the Gnostic Celtic Church, Druid Apprentice with the Ancient Order of Druids in America, and Ovate with the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids.


I am mother to two children, Ashlyn and Torrin,  and 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 our cats Lilith and Mandragora, our Leopard Geckos Mary Jane and Milo, our snake Malicia, and some fish. We live in a zoo!

I hope that my work creates belonging. I do this work by tending the land, blogging and podcasting at The Plant Witch Podcast, and collaborating in community with other humans and more-than-human beings.  But most of all, I play. I play with ideas, concepts, visions. I dream with the plants, with the land, and with other humans. 

Thank you for stopping here in the Grove as you journey through the wilds of the internet. Thanks for dreaming with me.
