Yaya Erin Rivera Merriman

Yaya Erin Rivera Merriman is an Esoteric Women’s Health Practitioner, Ceremony Leader, Mother, Priestess, and Artist. 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, and Classical Tantra as access points to universal source consciousness.

In 2015 Erin founded Bridge Temple Mystery School in San Diego, CA. In 2016, she opened Bridge Temple Nature Hospital, a remote forest sanctuary where she offers multidimensional, plant medicine assisted, sex positive life coaching sessions and ceremonies designed to help you embrace all aspects of who you are, enabling you to give birth to a more authentic version of yourself.

Erin’s study as an Herbalist in the Wise Woman Tradition, Zen hospice and prison chaplain, and Certified Tantric Councilor 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, 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.
