|Wise Women of the Southeast
...earth-based healing, local wisdom, & deep nourishment
Over the last seven years, The Southeast Women's Herbal Conference has become one of the most popular events of its kind in the country. Hosting over 70 classes with more than 30 teachers who represent an almost dizzying array of beauty and power with credentials from Ph.D. to m.o.m. More and more, as in the ‘Buy Local’ movement, they aim to keep their wisdom local.
The classes change from year to year with a major focus on herbs, foods, and at-home medicine. A sample of the 2011 classes:
The Aromatic Boudoir • Herbal Pestos • Immune System Herbs • Essential Fatty Acids • Tea Blending • Sacred Herbal Baths • Everyday First Aid • Immune System Herbs • Deep Wound Care • Herb Walks • Cherokee Herbal Medicine • Bridging Science & Folk Tradition • Pregnancy & Birth • Conscious Dying
Very early on the organizers realized that they needed to address the whole woman in her whole life. This weekend is as much about self-love, embodiment, empowerment, mothering, and sexuality as it is about herbs. Some of the 2011 classes include:
Creating Ceremony • ShadowWork • Moving through Emotions • Vital Essence & Blissful Power • Earth-based Psychology • The Healthy Masculine Within & Without • Sexual Medicine • Unconditional Self-Love • Developing Intuition • Authentic Voicework • The Power of the Drum • Living Takes Life: Our Predatory Nature Holds Gifts
The 7th annual Southeast Women’s Herbal Conference will take place October 14-16, 2011 in beautiful Black Mountain, NC with special guest and author Brooke Medicine Eagle. The weekend, which organizers say will draw 800-1000 women, offers women an opportunity to learn, connect, and deepen into the Wise Woman Tradition, earth-based healing, local wisdom, & deep nourishment.
From one 2010 participant: "The variety of classes and teachers were so wonderful at times it was difficult to chose which classes to attend! Every class I attended had knowledgeable and talented teachers that gifted us with wonderful and inspiring wisdom. And the evening events - oh my - exciting and ’over-the-top!’"
Cost for the conference is $250 until August 19th and $285 thereafter with additional costs for meals, lodging, and intensives. The conference is offering continuing education credits for nurses.
