Thank you so much for your wisdom!
I have two things to thank you for Susun. Thank you so much for being so lovely to me last year…My biggest thank you, however, comes in the form of my health….I love you Susun Weed...I feel like a new woman.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.


Hello fellow herbalist...thank you for your wisdom.



Hello Susun

I attended your green witch intensive in 2008. Wow!! What a powerful experience. I'm still holding true to my dedication and living and being a green witch. Thank you for sharing your vast wisdom with us. I love your ezine and the yearly moon calendar you send me. I can't thank you enough.

Bright, green blessings,

I recently purchased a dvd on menopause and I really enjoyed watching it. I appreciated the experiences that the womyn shared, risking themselves. I found what I heard useful, knowing I am with other womyn is reassuring….

In the Wild,



Hello Susun,
I have referred to your writings for years…





I was introduced to your books during pregnancy and absolutely love them - they have been such a big help. Many thanks for writing them! :)




Hello Susun,

...I think you are a wonderful author. Herbalism is my new passion and so someone recommended to me your works. I have not been disappointed. Your books are resourceful, easy to use, and understand. The more I read the more I want to learn. My first herbal remedy was an ointment from one of your books. It works beautifully and is a family favorite. I did want to take this brief moment to tell you I love and enjoy your books. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with others. It is greatly appreciated.

Blessings Be,



Green Blessings Susun!

I purchased and have read two of the books you wrote, one entitled, "New Menopausal Years- The Wise Woman Way," and also "Wise Woman Herbal Healing Wise." Both are outstanding in a number of respects, and undoubtedly impacted me in ways a bit too diverse to go into. You have en excellent, highly informative, and beautifully illustrated website, with stunning artwork to enjoy, too. I've gone on YouTube and seen your quite literally down to earth instructional/informational videos. The benefits of what I have learned are now reaching many others (it starts with one sometimes...), in addition to being life changing for me. The debate between raw and cooked foods? Priceless…. you absolutely presented your side in a dynamic manner utilizing factual and pictorial evidence against the other side, certainly winning that one by a landslide….

I'd like to end in thanking you again, for making a huge difference in the life of so many women, and now in mine and in those I love, too.

Thank you for the wonderful October ezine...
So much bounty to read and enjoy!...

Hi Susan,

I did a few weed walks and workshops with you back in the 90s which
changed my life and am experiencing a rebirth of fascination with your
brilliant approach to health.

Thanks so much!



Hi Susun,

I'm an artist. I became familiar with your work through Sage Woman Magazine (it's most recent cover is my Harvest Goddess) and more recently a friend gave me your book on the menopausal years. LOVED IT!!

Thanks and Bright Blessings,



thank you so much for all your beautiful work ..and especially the article on witches...
I am sure you know this, but the middle colour of the rainbow is green and so is the frequency of love and gratitude......

many blessings,


Hello Susun:

I enjoyed your article on weeds last month. Just wanted to take a second to tell you so.

Hi Susun,

We met many years ago when you gave a weed workshop at a friends place in Orlando, FL (I think it was around 1982-84)
Thank you so much for the wisdom you have shared with so many women through the years!




We met you in Seattle a year or so back. I am so grateful for the Wise Woman Tradition that RavenCroft introduced to me.

Blessed be~



Ms. Weed,

I so enjoy your writing.

Bright Blessings,



Dear Susun,

I LOVE your wise woman healing wise book. So amazing to find it -- this has made so much sense of my life. being connected to young herbalists in the area and becoming one myself.




Hi Susun,

thanks for the friend connect and for all your great information.




I love your website and everything you stand for!




When we hold hands with joy and walk to the hollow.Our earth mother is sure to follow.Her daughters are preparing to rejoice in her garden. Where her circle becomes complete!......you are loved" .Dear Susun.




I've been enjoying your interviews on Herbmentor.com and would love to be your friend...'cause I'm already a fan! :).




Susun, you and i did Tai chi in brigitte's living room together years ago..not sure if you remember me but it's so nice to see your name on here.



Astonishing results since reading your book sister susun and I thank you!!!



Thank you for all you have shared with me and so many other women through the years. Because of you, I was able to make my menopausal transition without any intervention by conventional medicine. It was quite a ride, and for the most part, quite a lot of fun. :)) Hoping to be able to enjoy a long and productive cronehood!

Be well, be happy, Blessed Be!



Hello Susun,

I'm writing to thank you for Saturday's class on Magical plants. It was wonderful to see your plot in the woods and the funny gang of goats. It is a very special place…I'd really like to learn more from you. You obviously have so much knowledge…

All my best,


My dear dear sister earth,

What a wonderful path that we have crossed and may you always breath the connection through our earth mother.



Dear Ms. Weed,

Fist, I would like to express gratitude for your wonderful work. I am a big fan of your site which I only recently discovered. I am studying herbs and you have been instrumental in helping me get started! I still have sooooo much to learn. You have also inspired me to continue figuring out how I am going to design my natural healing practice.



Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and the information you have
