Crystal Hoffman

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.
