Dear Karen,

Thank you for great information and support. I was able to speak to Susun last night as you suggested and it was wonderfull. We discussed drinking the herbal infusions daily and giving them to my daughter as well. I plan on drinking infusions daily and alternating between: Stinging nettle, oatstraw, red clover, comfrey leaf and linden…
Susun thought it would only benefit us both.
I ordered Susun's book on menaupause.

Thank you so much for your help
with gratitude,


Hi Susun,

love your books, especially "herbal for the childbearing year".




I so enjoyed your intensive at the Green Nations Gathering. Thank you.

Thank Susun for me for all that she does.




Dear Susun,

I have been reading your documents on Mammography and I agree completely with the comments of the medical fraternity and how it promotes a product that exposes the patient with the very thing that creates what it says it is trying to cure…




Hello there Susun.

It was a pleasure to meet you at the gathering and to
learn from your wisdom. I hope you had a pleasant trip home.




Hello Karen,
Thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly, i am so excited that you are able to allow me to study with Susun and to do a course with you.

I think i will start with the Green Witch and i will then probable follow with the other after, like you did.…

Much Grace and Blessings



me too..
thank you Susun, winter is my season

but until i read this i didn't understand the connection to darkness and feeling my creativity.

Much love,



Your books have always been an enormous inspiration for me.
And now, planting a school garden, I have come back to Healing Wise to bring
its wisdom to the kids...


Dear Susun,

I can't believe you are here on Facebook!

:) I hope you are very well.




… I was trying to find the 'Down There' book, but found this site instead. I have read the 'New Menopausal Years' and love the format. I wish I could attend a
workshop, but I am in San Francisco. How lovely that you provide this Q &
A. Thank you so much.

Hello Susun,

What a beautiful baby!
I'm guessing that she's your grand daughter.
My congratulations are LONG OVERDUE!!!

Much joy,

PS Thanks for all the info you send in your e-zine. It's so generous.I
really appreciate it!



Dear Susun,

I have read many of your articles and feel your approach is very
refreshing, I was particularly inspired by your writings on
osteoporosis and candida. I read somewhere you told someone
their detox may be contributing to their problem and they should build
up. The truth of that statement struck me - deep in my soul I feel
your perspective is more harmonious with nature and therefore makes
more sense. I would be so grateful to hear your perspective on my

thank you very very much


You are wonderful!

And thank you for all that you do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am so greatful for all the times you came to Boulder Colorado and I heard your wisdom at the Rocky Mountain Center for Botantical Studies.....So Greatful!





I was afraid it was gone forever. I can't tell you how much I have
missed that forum, I could camp out there for days reading posts and
enjoying the vibe....

Dear Susun Weed

I was reading your articles and ezines during my pregnancy two years ago and they were great inspiration for me and a part of my preparation for home birth. Now, I am teaching yoga for pregnant women and would love to inspire them to look deeper in themselves in order to conect with feminine power within each of them. In my country, Serbia, women still deliver their babies in hospital, there is no puplic talks about natural childbirth, homebirth, etc. Women are mostly guided by men, technology, medicine. They are in fear when talk about birth. They need to look inside, to recognize, accept and awake they female power. I would love to do it for myself. To deepen that bond. In order to do that, I would love to put your article(s) on our website, in section for pregnancy. I would love to translate your Herbal Allies for Pregnancy Problems and Goddess is alive in Every Woman so I am asking your permision to do that. I will put your name and link to your website, anyway. Hope that this is all right?!

Many thanks for your wisdom and inspiration once again,
Hope to hear from you soon.
Best wishes




I absolutely love the new website. Infact, I'm having a difficult
time working because I keep surfing this site.

Great job!

Dear Ash Tree,

… Tamara would very much like to carry and refer
people to the Healing Wise and perhaps other books, on a regular basis
at her Spa.

many thanks! have a blessed and beautiful day!



Hi Susun,

I have followed your teachings for a few years now and still trying. I will launch a webpage soon hopefully for inspiration to others and would like to link to yours with your permission? I love your new formats.

I am in the process of reversing my own disease since 2003. Moving forward started with reading Healing Wise passed to me from a friend and learning and using those herbs. I really appreciate learning from you how to make it all taste its very best.

All the best,
Denise (Dene)


I was introduced to your books by a very interesting and intelligent lady.
My sister.

Thank you again



Hi Susun,

love your books, especially "herbal for the childbearing year". …





I'm sure many women have told you and I tell you once more: thankyou, you contribute to the change in my life and help me get better. I'm an Italian feminist and yoga kundalini teacher, I'm working on a workshop about menopause and your sites, books, advices were so so precious.

The goddess bless you, Paola


I'm a birth doula and I love learning from you!



Hi Susun!

I have never met you, but I have read your books and given a good many away to pregnant mommas…Thank you for your time and help, and for all the strength already shared with me through Herbs for the Child Bearing Year. I spent a lot of time by myself out in the "holler," as we call it, when my son was born. Drinking red rasberry and nettle tea every day gave me a sense of companionship!

Health and happiness to your family,
jen osha




I am a woman transitioning through menopause. I have tried the kundalini
meditation from the menopause meditation website and I found it to be really
incredible. I am finding out just how much I supress my anger and my
eroticism. The visualization and the breathing seem to release tension and
anxiety, and I feel so alive and powerful - wonderful. I have done it just
before sleep and it is followed by a dream which includes elements of
sensual fulfillment. This is in contrast to the dreams of frustration I
often have.

I have done this meditation twice, one week apart. Since it seems so
beneficial, I plan to continue with it…

Thanks for sharing this beautiful meditation.




G'day, as I seek to gain further lore on Herbal edkucation I sincerely thank you for your life lessons I have learnt sooo much from you... thank you for accepting me as your friend - cheers from 'down under'



Hello Susun Weed

I am a fan of yours from 25 years ago when I enjoyed the
book you wrote on pregnancy years and have shared the info with many mothers
to be. …

Thankyou for all
the healing and sharing you are a great service to us all.




it's Eriko from Japan who met you in Glastonbury Goddess Conference this year.
I'm your guradian angel!

Hi Susun,

I found your interview on your website clarified some
thoughts for me. I am not sure of the direction my life is going in, but it
keeps seeming to revolve around plants and food. I tend to flit from one
interest to the next and repeat the cycle.



Hello Susun

I have been aware of your wonderful work for quite some time and am blessed
to have been added to your list of friends. Know that who you are and what
you give to the planet makes this world a better place. I wish you happiness
and satisfaction. May you embrace the sun and moon within you and may you
elevate your soul to new heights.

Yours in Simplicity of Life



Hi Susun!

One of these days I'm going to enroll in the Green Witch program. Thanks for
adding me! You are an awesome teacher from afar and an inspiration! I have
passed on numerous copies of your books, especially WISE WOMAN WAYS!

Thanks for all you do and are! Namaste!
Love & Light~April

Best wishes,



Hi there,

I'm really inspired by your philosophy and way of life. Enjoy reading you website all the way from New Zealand.




Dear Karen Joy,

I found Susun while searching the Internet … I do so appreciate Susun's work in empowering people and perhaps that's why I was drawn to her.

Thank-you for your kind response. I wish Susan well in all her endeavors and you
as well.

I have just ordered your book and know that it will provide many...I love your site and the many articles I have read over the past years…
