Meghan Pivarnik is a clinical herbalist and flower essence practitioner at the Evergreen Center at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism. As a clinician, she brings in her attention to detail, appreciation of each sense, softness, and deep listening. She grew up in New England surrounded by color and water and has always been a lover of nature and plant wisdom. As a child, she played in vegetable and flower gardens, in the creek that ran alongside her home, and waited eagerly each spring for the Peony wands to bloom. She can still feel the body memory of each season’s shift.
Her journey to Colorado was to study poetics but in her first semester of graduate school, while at the Boulder Farmer’s Market, she had an a-ha moment and knew she was supposed to study herbalism. Eight years later, her husband asked her what the one thing she would love to do with her life was and they immediately sat down and made her dream begin to manifest. She wanted to be a medical herbalist. She had always wanted to be an herbalist. She is exactly where she is supposed to be.
She holds her MFA in writing and poetics from Naropa University’s Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics. Image, language, and sensation fuel the lens in which Meghan understands the world. She remains connected to language professionally as a freelancer for Sounds True Publishing. She’s also spent many years as a teacher’s assistant at a Montessori school where she worked with preschool aged kiddos. The ability witness, sit in stillness, and honor their innate desire to learn was her favorite aspect of working with this age group. Play and self-advocacy over and over again—just like being a vital adult.
Meghan has also studied the history and theory of yoga at Naropa University and Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health. She loves and honors the body, feeling its wisdom and emotional landscape deeply.
You might find Meghan camping with her doggy and hubby, looking up with gratitude at the trees as she wanders Denver’s streets, or dancing to live music.
Meghan is grateful to step into the lineage of holding space for people to find their most vital selves.
