The Wise Woman Herbal
by Susun Weed
Recommended by Tamarack Song
A rare and deep sharing of the Earth-self-Balance healing way,
along with an intimate approach to relationship with several Plants,
which she considers People, and their Healers.
Healing Wise sets forth the foundations of the Wise Woman Tradition, contrasting them with the Heroic and Scientific views of healing. "Weeds draw us into ancient wisdom in a clear and refreshing
way," says herbalist Rosemary Gladstar.
Seven herbs -- burdock, chickweed, dandelion, nettle, oatstraw, seaweed, and violet -- are explored in depth. Each monograph includes the "voice" of the herb, a weed walk to encounter the herb in its environment, detailed instructions for harvesting and preparation,
properties and uses for every part of the herb, pertinent facts, fun, folklore, and recipes for gourmet foodstuffs, wines, beers, cosmetics, and more. Paperback, 295 pages.
"Especially important is her discernment between the gentle Wise Woman Way and other "alternative" healing paths. . . . I wish every healer would incorporate this approach," says Vicki Noble (Motherpeace Tarot).
"One of the most powerful spokepersons of the herbal movement, Susun Weed introduces a marvelous sense of vitality and originality to herbalism. A poet, artist and visionary, Weed draws us into ancient wisdom in a way that is clear and refreshing. I recommend Healing Wise highly - there is good medicine in these teachings." -
Rosemary Gladstar, Founder California School of Herbal Studies
"Healing Wise is filled with
the wisdom of our Earth Mother who is the caretaker of all beings. To everyone concerned with personal and planetary health, this book speaks as a vital messenger and a call to wholeness from the Mother Earth." - Ywylah Nitshce,
