Spirit & Practice of the Wise Woman Tradition

The Wise Woman Tradition, identified by herbal author and teacher Susun S. Weed, is the oldest tradition of healing known on our planet. It helps us understand that our body is part of the body of the earth, all bodies are sacred, and we can trust our own body as a source of inner guidance. With an all-inclusive perspective of “both/and” plus “how is this my ally/what gifts does it bring?”, the Wise Woman Tradition uses deep listening, compassion, simple ritual and common herbs to heal and maintain each individual’s health/wholeness/holiness. Enjoy a single session experience in the Chakra Garden with Candance.
