What is the Wise Woman Way? It is neither alternative nor orthodox medicine. Orthodox scientific medicine heals by fixing the machine. Alternative or heroic medicine heals by cleaning, by trying to get rid of what is dirty, bad, or wrong.
The Wise Woman tradition, however, heals by nourishing the wholeness of the unique being. To the wise woman, all things are interconnected and already perfect. The task then is not to create perfection but to make ourselves available to it, to acknowledge and trust our bodies as perfect manifestations of our wholeness, accepting life and death, health and sickness as part of the spiral. The Wise Woman tradition is more than 50,000 years old.
As a “backwards pioneer,” Susun brings this ancient wisdom to our modern lives, saying “I speak for the earth. I am the voice of the plants, bringing the ways of the Ancient Grandmothers to the sacred sister spiral of today.”
Susun Weeds Making Peace with Ourselves & Others, the Wise Woman Way will be held at the St. Augustine Art Association, 22 Marine St., in St. Augustine, Florida, on February 13th at 7pm. The cost is a sliding scale of $ 10-$ 15. For more information, please contact Diane Longo at 904-824-8970.
Susun’s books will be available and she will sign them after the talk. There will also be a place at the book table for those in the healing arts to display their business cards and pamphlets.
Susun Weed, author of four best-selling books, and founder of the Wise Woman Center, is here to wake us up to the earth’s gifts, to entice us to bend over and pick a weed and taste it. She loves to see the enchanted glow that lights our faces when we realize all we need for health and nourishment is right here for free, a give away of the earth’s abundance. She reminds us that our bodies are organic, changing entities, not machines, and that we can trust ourselves to renew and transform.
