Dawn Rafferty

Dawn Rafferty is inducted as a Lay Spiritual Healer in the Temple of Sacred Fire Healing. She completed her training with Eliot Cowan in 2004 and has been a practicing Plant Spirit Medicine Healer since that time. As a child, Dawn Rafferty had a deeply loving relationship with nature. When she began to realise there was something ‘unusual’ about speaking to and hearing nature, she closed off that part of herself. On a sunny summer morning in 2002, Dawn woke up with an urgent need to go into nature and commune with the flowers – something which she thought sane people did not do. She got lost in time with some tiny white and yellow flowers that day. They opened her eyes to innocent childhood memories of the love she shared with nature. Checking her flower identification book that evening, she found her new little friend was Eyebright.   Before long, wanting to discover whether there were others who felt like her, people who might also sense the natural world’s divine love and constant communion with us all, the reply came from nature to seek out a plant spirit teacher.   Imagine her joy when she was handed Eliot Cowan’s book Plant Spirit Medicine the very next morning.
