Chris Griffin

Wilton, NH, USA


Chris Griffin practices Plant Spirit Medicine in Wilton, New Hampshire. He completed the Plant Spirit Medicine training with Eliot Cowan and Alison Gayek in 2004 and is inducted as a Lay Spiritual Healer in the Temple of Sacred Fire Healing.

Chris’s discovery, study and practice of Plant Spirit Medicine has been a beautiful merging of years of spiritual practice and a long-term fascination with healing using plants. He began his journey in the yogic traditions of India and subsequently explored interests in Ayurvedic and Chinese herbalism.

When he discovered the book Plant Spirit Medicine by Eliot Cowan, he realized that his longing for both healing and spiritual connection were not inherently different, and he felt a calling to learn more about what plant spirits had to offer. Regular treatments with Plant Spirit Medicine eventually led him to a strong desire to practice the medicine that had helped him so much, and he attended the Plant Spirit Medicine training from 2003 to 2004 in Colrain, Massachusetts. Through both receiving and studying Plant Spirit Medicine, Chris discovered far more than he expected. In addition to greater balance and wellbeing, he was connected with the inner resources he needed to move forward in his own path of being a husband and a parent, and he has deepened his connection to the spiritual aspects of healing, music and community.

Sharing the profound healing gifts of plant spirits is one of the great joys in Chris’s life.
