Crystal is a Clinical and Folk Herbalist, Yogini, Traditional Astrologer, Journey Work Practitioner, and Story Teller.
She combines all of these healing tools in her one-on-one healing work with clients and teaches courses on plant magic and medicine which reveal the elegance of how scientific and spiritual perspectives of healing mirror one another.
Her magical work started young, palm reading in middle school and giving tarot readings in high school everywhere from AP Bio to the office of her gas station job where she also happened to work as the town herbalist.
After leaving her career as a professor of poetry and literature, she spent nearly a decade studying with healers from various traditions around the globe in pursuit of freeing herself from debilitating chronic illnesses.
After passing the gifts that she gleaned from that healing on to numerous suffering friends and family members, she decided to follow her calling as the legs of the plants and the voice of the stars.
She has since guided hundreds of students and clients through their own healing journeys and continues to strive to learn, listen, and serve in equal balance.
Jesi Lynch Rivera
Jesi’s passion for radical compassion, embodied communication and personal-collective expression began early in life through exploring performance art and curiously observing the humanness of the world in which we live.
Her travels continued through the work of holding space for people through personal losses: loss of function, loss of ability to communicate, and loss of a previous way of life.
As this work grew, her soul work was revealed; to create a safe container valuing wholeness for all humans of all abilities and generate self agency through new forms of expressing.
Jesi’s understanding and honoring of humanity, in all it’s varied forms, solidified through studying the craft of theatre for over a decade, directing non-profit fundraising efforts for two decades, and serving as a Speech-Language Pathologist for over a decade.
Through combining her skills of leadership, collaboration/co-creation, non-verbal and augmentative communication techniques, artistry, empathy, multi-modalities of energetic body communication and master’s level training in the breath to brain body system; she shares her gifts today as a multi-faceted director and producer of collective and creative healing spaces.
