Dear Susun --
I found your site today and can't stop surfing through all of the amazing information. I so appreciate all of the information available on so many topics. I had just asked the question within myself about what to do about menopausal symptoms and your website came to me. THANK YOU!!!

I will be ordering your books…


First I want to start out by saying that I love your website!!!!!!!!!!!

I have two books written by you, New Menopausal Years the Wise Woman Way and Healing the Wise Woman Way. They have changed my way of thinking about healing and herbs. One day I hope to go back to New York with my husband and visit the land where he grew up…
thank you so much, even just having you read this email I feel blessed!

green blessings,

Hello and Many Blessings!

I have just received Healing Wise and The New Menopausal Years as gifts (even though I am only 26)! I must say that I have never before read anything so inspiring and filled with wisdom and love. I feel very inspired to take action and follow my instincts which have been calling for me to really begin earnest work with herbs.
I would love to be included in your mailing list.
Thank you very much,



Many Thanks for ALL YOU do.....
Blessings ALL-Ways....




Hi, thank you for all the beautiful work you do.

Thank you.
Susan, Queen of Trees (HET-HRU).



I listened to you on WDST this morning with Doug Grunther. Susun, it was very enlightening and quite interesting.

Please add my name to your email newsletter. Actually, I've heard you numerous times, but I am now finally emailing you, I have such a busy life, as does most everyone!! I am excited to be added to your email, and to be reading your newsletter soon.
Thank you very much.



I am interested in receiving your ezine as well as being on the mailing
list. I am interested in the corresponding herbal medicine courses and I
would love to be connected to the Wise Woman Center.
Thank you!!




To Susun Weed and all the individuals involved with Menopause Metamorphosis,
I have really been enjoying your website over the past couple of months and would love to receive notification of updates as they are available.

Your website has helped me to discover that menopause is a time to allow myself time alone and by doing this I am finally getting to know who I am as well as noticing and appreciating all the wonderful opportunities and gifts I have in my life. I am becoming more organized and receive insights I never noticed before. I will start a journal very soon and look forward to having the energy and desire to do such a thing.

Thank you so very much. You have made a big difference in a life that was struggling and thought it was about to die………it now is flourishing and feels like new life has sprouted from the old one.
With much gratitude and positive energy,



Hi Susun:
Just wanted to say that just yesterday I pulled your Menopausal Years out of my bookcase to refer to it for HELP (dryness). I purchased some Nettles today, as you told me after my hysterectomy years ago, that it nourishes my adrenals. As Intuition would have it, I just received this E-zine today...confirming my intuition and YOUR exhaustive work on the subject.
Thank You for being here.

With much respect,
Peace and Blessings

I have read your book concerning the Childbearing Year, in fact I refer to it all the time.




Dear Susun
I LOVE your website! …..Best in woman healing to you .And thanks again for a fantastic website!!
from, me, Annie.


Dear Susun,

I had the honor of speaking to you a few weeks ago when I ordered Juliette
de Bariacli Levy's books. I have read them and feel like I am seeing
something I must understand, but it is behind a glass window
that I can't move through. When I learn a language different from my
original language, I learn very quickly, when I am in the environment and
surrounded by experience in that new language. I learn very little from
books unless they are stories. I want to know everything and learn
everything I can from you.

I am like a child. I am open to learning all I need to know. … It is my hope that I can learn as much from you as I can for the remainder of my life.

With love and respect,



Hello Susun
First of all I would like to let you know how much I like your website and
appreciate your articles and information you provide.

Please add me to your mailing list. You are living the life I dream of daily. You are blessed.
Thank you,



Recently I read "Healing Wise" sent to me by a great Mohawk friend from
Akwesasne Mohawk Territory where I have worked for many years. There I
found great insight into quandaries I have been facing since diagnosed with

I’m dealing with the multitude of caregivers from all three healing traditions -- including of course the wonderful cross-overs such as Bernie Siegel who is mentioned in the text. I recently spent a Medicine Walk day with Suzanne Brant at Tyendinaga, who talked to me further
about Susun Weed and various related connections. She has given me this
information on contacting you.
In peace and good faith,



Loved your book for childbearing years. Very helpful. Was used for all six births.


Susun, I would love to receive your insightful newsletter. As I just love your ways of teaching,
TY so much for your time,
Have A Great Day!
The Biggest Of Hugs,



Karen Joy,
Thanks for the information. I have one of Susun Weed’s books on breast health and have found it very helpful. I had breast cancer five years ago and like to keep up on staying healthy in my whole person. ….
Peace and wellness,



Hi Susun, I came across your website today its very informative and have bookmarked it! I was wondering if you were coming over to England in the near future? We have a great gathering every year called Witchfest!
I would love to hear you talk there!
Blessings Skye



dear Susun ,,,
it was a joy to meet you at the herbal conference in June...
I am writing to let you know your words that day came full circle for me....
I love working with herbs, and I have incorporated them into my daily life... your immune soup is one of my favorites.. helping me through my journey with cancer.

It was 5 years this past April.... that day 5 years ago seeing your book and using it , has taken me on a path.... of whole health..

I recently opened a yoga studio and I continue to encourage others to look within themselves for what they need to do for themselves: diet, resting , toxic thoughts..... I continue to be in awe of this life .. I also love the way you talk about your herbs...and the energy that comes from plants....
I wish you love and light... and I hope our paths cross again..
thank you so much......



Dear Susun,
May I subscribe to your online Weedwanderings?
I have just spent ages on your site and found so many answers to things that were baffling me and I LOVE Grandmother Growth. I will rest in her arms tonight.
Many Blessings



Good Morning Justine,

Today is Tues. and lo and behold, I received my books yesterday.
I cannot believe how quickly they arrived.

I just started browsing through them and all I can say is, Wow!!!! I can't wait to read the Menopause one. The Childbearing book, I am giving my daughter in law, but it also looks
fabulous. Thanks so much for the prompt delivery and the wonderful service.
I hope to buy lots more from you in the coming months and years.

I had never heard of your website until I saw a reference to the menopause book in
the book "The Woman's Book of Yoga & Health". I am so glad I found you.

My very best wishes,

I just met Susun at Rosemary's garden tonight. would love to get the
newsletter. I am very inspired.



Hi Susun,
I was actually just enlightened to your website by my husband. ….. Your website is amazing, I only wish I knew about it years ago.
Thank you,



Hello to Susun Weed and to anyone answering this!!
I love you guys,
Anna Marie



Dear Susun;
It has taken me a while to find your website. And now that I have, I have
been a glutton in reading and devouring all the information there.
I do so appreciate your vast knowledge. I take heart in reaffirming my own
knowledge and beliefs (and suspicions, too) in the herbal treatments my
grandmother taught me.

I do get a lot of pooh-pooh over my unusual health ideas, but as I share my knowledge with others, they no longer marvel, but want more. Ah, the joys of gluttony!

I have every intention of attending your workshops. I'm not certain when
that will be, but soon come. How does that saying go? When the student is
ready, the teacher appears. Or is it when the teacher is ready, the student
appears. Whatever, I am all three - student, teacher and ready.

- Wendy



Dear Susun,
…………..With great gratitude, thank you, for your contribution to the health of women
everywhere. Specifically, for the personal help for myself through menopause and
for your books that I could recommend to the other women in my practice.



Dear Susun...
I would very much like to receive your newsletter, Weed Wanderings. I have been a fan of yours since using your book "The Childbearing Years" for my second child (that was 13 years ago!). I have just read an article you had written for the recent "Sage Woman" publication (Nov. '05) I loved it! Thank you for your wisdom and insight and I look forward to your newsletter.
In Love and Laughter...



Greetings from Juneau, Alaska... Susun.
I experienced one of your beginning Herbal week long intensives in June of 1991. One of the wisest choices I ever made!
Many Thanks for your Time...
Peace Be With You, Goddess of the Green,



Hello Susun,
You are an amazing woman. I am an herbalist and have read all your work. I just wanted to ask you when did you begin your herbalist path? I know with time you learn and grow and have more and more knowledge. You seem to be so advanced in this path and that is something I strive to be. Please give me your words of wisdom on this matter.
Blessed. Queen of Trees.
