The Wise Woman Tradition of healing is a dramatically different way to approach health and healing. If enduring energy, freedom from pain and chronic problems, and a long, healthy life is your goal, this fascinating and informative session is for you. You'll learn about the three traditions of healing – Scientific fixing, Heroic cleansing, and Wise Woman nourishing – how to recognize them in yourself and others and how to use them to your best advantage to get the health care that works best for you. 

Susun began studying herbal medicine in 1965 when she was living in Manhattan while pregnant with her daughter, Justine Adelaide Swede. She wrote her first book -- Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year (now in its 29th printing)-- in 1985 and published it as the first title of Ash Tree Publishing in 1986. 

It was followed by Healing Wise (1989), New Menopausal Years the Wise Woman Way (1992 and revised in 2002), Breast Cancer? Breast Health! The Wise Woman Way (1996) and Down There: Sexual and Reproductive Health the Wise Woman Way.

In addition to her writing, Ms. Weed trains apprentices, oversees the work of more than 300 correspondence course students, coordinates the activities of the Wise Woman Center, and is a High Priestess of Dianic Wicca, a member of the Sisterhood of the Shields, and a Peace Elder.

Her worldwide teaching schedule encompasses herbal medicine, ethnobotany, pharmacognosy, psychology of healing, ecoherbalism, nutrition, and women's health issues and her venues include medical schools, hospital wellness centers, breast cancer centers, midwifery schools, naturopathic colleges, and shamanic training centers, as well as many conferences.

 

Susun appears on many television and radio shows, including National Public Radio and NBC News.
