The Southeast Wise Women Herbal Conference was inspired by the thriving herbal conferences for women in the Northeast, Northwest, and California, founded in the 1990's. After running Red Moon Herbs and teaching herbal medicine for women for over ten years, Corinna Wood—student and apprentice of Wise Woman Herbalist Susun Weed—recognized that the Southeast, too, would be eager for this kind of gathering. From our first annual event in 2005 with 200 women attending, we quickly discovered that the community was more than ready, that this event is filling a deep hunger for the Wise Woman Ways in this region. The conference now has a heart and soul of its own. For many, it has become an annual event—with over a thousand women, the October gathering is a tradition in education, inspiration, and sisterhood.
The Southeast Wise Women Herbal Conference offers a unique opportunity to participate in a vibrant and joyful gathering of women who are dedicated to health and wholeness for our communities, the planet and ourselves. Through the countless contributions of women of the conference community, this Wise Woman web continues to deepen, grow, and be enriched by all those involved each year. Join founder Corinna Wood and a plethora of renowned teachers for a weekend retreat where women of all ages gather. We invite you to renew your spirit, explore your power and engage in the extraordinary experience of the Southeast Wise Women Herbal Conference.
