What's Inside Wise Woman Herbal Ezine this Month...


Links for You...
woman's health, women's wisdom

If you can’t get to the Wise Woman Center to participate in the great learning opportunities, workshops and exchange weekends, perhaps Susun is coming to a town near you! Here is Susun’s upcoming planned away schedule:


September 24-25 Garlic Festival in Saugerties, NY (not teaching)


the Art of Annett E. Bank

Visionary Artist - Francene Hart

Reverence for the natural environment, and experience of the interconnectedness between all things has guided me to create paintings of beauty and spirit. These paintings act as a bridge between this reality and a metaphorical world of healing, continuity, and transformation. I use multiple transparent watercolor glazes coupled with image overlapping techniques, and Sacred Geometry to produce visions of a multi-dimensional reality. It is my intention to create art that embodies the vibration of Universal Love and expresses the joy and gratitude I feel for the honor of being part of this earthwalk.


What’s happening this Summer at the Wise Woman Center?


September 3-5:  Labor Day Work-exchange Weekend

For more information and to book for any of these events visit:  Blue Turtle Botanicals from herbalist and wild woman Darcey Blue offers organic and wildcrafted herbal products, herbal and nutritional consultations and coaching, private herbal mentorships, classes and sacred plant medicine experiences.   It is her deep love of the wild Earth and its creatures that fuels her passion for healing and sharing plants, wilder-ness, spirit, nourishment and the sacred connection to the Earth.  She is inspired by how our relationship with the land, nature and wilderness impacts our physical and spiritual health and well-being and knows that one cannot separate the health of the people from the health of the land on which they live, nor the well-being of the body from that of the mind & spirit in connection with the wild Earth.

Online Course with Susun Weed
Menopausal Allies
( Link to detailed description of: Menopausal Allies )

Mentor: Susun Weed

This course will look at menopause as puberty prime, as a metamorphosis, and as the springboard for the last fifty years of our lives. You will mine gems of wisdom from how you dealt with your first puberty, recast your problems as allies during menopausal withdrawal, meltdown, and emergence, and learn how to use herbal allies to create yourself as wise old crone – juicy, vital, vibrant, strong-boned, hale-hearted, and gleeful. You will look at the facts behind some of the prevalent myths of and learn which herbal allies are better choices. You will learn about herbal allies for menopause: herbs for dealing with fertility, mood and emotion, sex, hot flashes, sleepless nights, lack of libido, and your own personal problems. I invite you to join our circle, a menopausal moon lodge, as it were, of women honoring themselves and reweaving the healing cloak of the Ancients.

Green Goddess Apprentice Week - with Susun Weed
( Link to detailed description of: Green Goddess Apprentice Week )

August 1-7, 2011 - This is a serious apprenticeship, not a workshop. Not only is the pace powerful and relentless, but we will be encountering and processing deep emotions as a result of our shamanic work together.
There are at least eight hours of instruction a day, plus projects and assignments to complete on your own outside of class time, plus special events throughout the week. We take your commitment to participate in this event very seriously and hope that you do too. Therefore, there are no refunds of any kind, for any reason. We look forward to your visit.
