Green Blessings ...
with Susun Weed

Study Herbal Medicine and the Wise Woman Tradition with Susun Weed

via Correspondence Course

Video courses are lots of fun. I enjoy making them for you. But they do not allow me to have a personal relationship with you. And I really have little patience with online courses. I prefer to help you learn and offer support for your individual herbal goals via correspondence course.

There are many advantages to taking a correspondence course.

My correspondence courses offer one of the easiest ways to interact directly with me and learn how to use plants simply and safely. Each of my four courses includes three hours of my time: talking on the phone and writing to you, answering your personal questions about yourself, your health, your family, your pets, your garden, and the world in general. This alone is worth more than the price of the course.

"Better than an apprenticeship, because I can continue my work and my life while studying with Susun."

My correspondence courses are ideal for those who want to learn herbal medicine at their own pace, with my loving guidance. Each course includes your choice of $100 worth of free audio-visual materials: MP3 files, CDs, and DVDs of my talks, workshops, and presentations. Your choice from a long and lavish list covering scores of topics including Talking with Plants, Menopause, Elements of Herbalism, trances, songs, and much much more.

"This course changed my life, my family, and my entire community for the better. Thank you!"

My correspondence courses help you explore green blessings wisely and effectively. Each course includes one or more books to aid you in your studies. And a free year of my mentorship program, where you will have access to new recordings of my classes, new videos, and other special materials. And, as a bonus gift, all correspondence course students who have paid in full, may take 50 percent off of any 3 one-day workshops with me at the Wise Woman Center.

"I appreciate how practical and specific you are, while still leaving room for fairies and playfulness."

My correspondence courses never expire, and there is no time limit on your participation. You can put down your course for years and then start again right where you left off. Or zip through it in a few months. You learn at your pace, at the time that is best for you.

"Upon completing the envisioning project, I knew I had to be a midwife. That was four years ago. I am now a midwife and ready to start on the next project of my Green Witch Correspondence Course."

My correspondence courses are not lessons to learn, but invitations to explore and experiment, to experience hands-on, to taste and touch and smell and be part of the life of the plants and the planet.

My correspondence courses are done in real time, via real mail. There is never any pressure. No deadlines. Nothing that you are required to turn in. The projects can be done in any order. You can write to me regularly or erratically. There are no grades. I am happy to comment on your work and answer your questions. And I will give you a graduation certificate when you are done.

All correspondence course students are welcome to participate in my monthly zoom meeting for as long as they like.

There is more than the choice between modern Western medicine and alternatives. There are three traditions of healing.

The Wise Woman tradition, focusing on integration and nourishment, and insisting on attention to uniqueness and holographic interconnectedness, is another choice: a new way that is also the most ancient healing way known. A way that follows a spiral path, a give-away dance of nourishment, change and self-love. "Trust yourself."

Alternative health care practitioners usually think in the Heroic tradition: the way of the savior, a circular path of rules, punishment, and purification. "Trust me."

AMA-approved, legal, covered-by-insurance health care practitioners are trained to think in the Scientific tradition: walking the knife edge of keen intellect, the straight line of analytical thought, measuring and repeating. Excellent for fixing broken things. "Trust my machine."

The Scientific, Heroic, and Wise Woman traditions are ways of thinking, not ways of acting. Any practice, any technique, any substance can be used by a practitioner/helper in any of the three traditions. There are, for instance, herbalists, and midwives, and MDs in each tradition.

The practitioner and the practice are different. The same techniques, the same herbs are seen and used differently by a person thinking in Scientific, Heroic, or Wise Woman ways.

Thinking these ways does lead to a preference for certain cures. The Wise Woman helper frequently nourishes with herbs and words. The Heroic savior lays down the law to clean up your act fast. The Scientific technician is most at ease with laboratory tests and repeatable, predictable, reliable drugs. But still, the practices do not conclusively identify the practitioner as being in a particular tradition.

The intent, the thought behind the technique points to the tradition: scientific fixing, heroic elimination, or wise womanly digestion and integration.

You contain some aspects of each tradition. And the three traditions are not limited to the realm of healing. The Scientific, Heroic, and Wise Woman ways of thinking are found in politics, legal systems, religions, psychologies, teaching styles, economics. As the Wise Woman way becomes more clearly identified, it opens the way to an integrated, whole, sacred, peaceful global village, interactive with Gaia, mother, earth. As each discipline spins anew its wise woman thread, we reweave the web of interconnectedness with all beings.

The Wise Woman Center exists to re-weave the healing cloak of the Ancients. This land is sacred, it is a safe space for women, and a place for the teachings of the Wise Woman way. The Goddess lives here, as do goats, fairies, green witches, and elders.
Located between Woodstock and Saugerties, 5 miles from the NYS Thruway, the Wise Woman Center is easily accessible while private enough for nude swimming. You'll receive a map and directions when you register. Incredible wild-food vegetarian meals are included with all workshops. Two - and three-day workshops (limited enrollment) include camping or indoor sleeping space and meals. Click to learn more
