Earth Spirit Medicine TM
Earth Spirit Medicine™ (ESM™) developed by Diane Littel MS LPC, CSAC, CSIT, CCAP, RMT, SP, ESMTP™, is a training program that embodies animism, and embraces the concepts of “shamanism”. ESM™ is a way of living that develops a greater, more meaningful connection to plants, crystals / rocks, trees, animals, the unseen, and people. Deeper in the sense that you see or feel the connection in a way that you are a bigger or smaller part of the whole. ESM™ has brought me more in tune and closer to earth’s spirit, learning the language of Gaia, the animals and plant life. In this 12 month training I learned to listen with my spirit, my “blood memory” and journey and travel farther, coming to a greater understanding about the importance of ceremony and sacredness. ESM™ explores “Shamanic” or “Natural Traditional Medicine” concepts, techniques, rituals, ceremonies, and develop that attunement that connects us to nature.

Lisa LeCuyer Kofakis, MH, ESM™SP
As an Herbalist & Shamanic practitioner, one of my goals is to be a bridge between the people and the plants. Helping others find solutions through herbalism and creating plant medicine is my passion.
I cultivate and also wild-harvest plants from our land. From these, I create balms, oils, tinctures and teas. I offer herbal recommendations and make custom blends to aid my clients in using plants to support their bodily systems and also to address specific issues.
I also host plant identification walks and classes. See Silver Creek Herbals Facebook Page for current events.
I'm a US Marine Corps veteran and studied Art History at Arizona State University. I was a professional tattoo artist, beginning in 1991 and in 2018, I transitioned out of the tattoo industry to pursue my career as an Herbalist. I'm happy to always be a lifelong student of herbal medicine.
Each year I add new plants both in my cultivated garden and also in the outlying areas of our property. Creating an oasis of edible and medicinal perennials is important to me. As a land steward and healer, I feel this is my duty to give back to the earth that supports us so lovingly.
