A Conscious Conversation
About Money With:
Erin Rivera Merriman
"Start to put more of your energy, intention, focus and direction on building up the possibility that you can make money doing whatever. Whatever you want."
"The things you don’t talk about growing up are…sex and… money—if you’re a woman. Men get to talk about those things all the time. And it becomes this way of locking women out of reality, because those are the lower chakras. Those are the…where we really plug our spirit into this world."
More About Erin:
Erin Rivera Merriman is an Esoteric Women's Health and Plant Spirit Medicine Practitioner, Priestess, Oracle, Artist, and Mother. Raised on a 100 acre Christmas tree farm in rural Connecticut, she was taught from a young age the importance of living in harmony with the natural world. Believing strongly in the necessity of hybrid medicine to meet the unique challenges of modern life, Erin is engaged in the continued study of Plant Medicine, Active Dreaming, Metaphysics, and Classical Tantra as gateways into the richness of direct personal experience of uncurated reality.
Erin offers multidimensional, plant medicine assisted, sex positive healing journeys designed to help you embrace all aspects of who you are, enabling you to give birth to a more authentic version of yourself. Now is the time to dream a bigger dream and be supported in making that dream a reality. Erin’s study as an Herbalist in the Wise Woman Tradition, combined with her training as a Zen hospice and prison chaplain, and recent studies in Kaula and Shakta Tantra have given her a unique ability to accompany you through life’s turning points as an ally on your journey of embodiment.
She has studied with a wide range of contemporary teachers, including Garifuna Elder Arzu Mountain Spirit, Susun S. Weed, Shonagh Home and Trudi Jhinpu Hirsch, and is honored to be with you as midwife at the edge of your comfort zone, as you conceive, incubate, and give birth to your own highest vision for your life.
Erin has taught art to Brooklyn teens, volunteered as an Interfaith Chaplain in maximum security New York City prison, led women’s ceremonial circles and organized retreats with indigenous teachers since 2007. When not teaching classes or building trans-dimesional mycelial networks that support people in living life outside the matrix, she can be found working on the next episode of her podcast Starseed Survival Guide, creating custom ritual jewelry as The Moving Sea, facilitating art collaborations, and co-creating community with the Spirit Weavers Gathering and Elder Farm.
