Letter to Susun, Spring 2002
By being who you are, it gives other women "permission"
to live and be beautiful in their own way. Thank you. Having recently
read your books and seen your metapause video, I am blown away. Because
all the quiet but powerful thoughts, beliefs, feelings etc that I have
had for years are suddenly validated as real and not "on the fringes".
AT 50 my menopause stage now is one of
isolation bordering on meltdown. Tho there are rough spots, it is the
best, most promising time of my life. It is so liberating to know that
what I have been going through is not odd. I have
no one I can speak to about any of this, so finding out about your work
has been a divine gift and loving proof that the universe has many ways
of nurturing us. We can trust in provision.
Many thanks, you are a beautiful person.
You are a testimonial to the fact that women at our age can be young,
healthy, beautiful and alive looking and being. The power contained
in your work of art - yourself- is awesome!
"Green sources of calcium are the best. Nourishing
herbs and garden weeds are far richer in minerals than ordinary
greens, which are already exceptional sources of nutrients...But
calcium from green sources alone is not enough. We need calcium
from white sources as well. Add a quart of yogurt a week to your
diet if you want really healthy bones." pp.28-29

"Making your own medicines saves you money if
you follow the Wise Woman Tradition of using local herbs, free for the
taking. Even one day's work in field, forest, and kitchen can provide
you with many years' worth of medicines. When you make your own, you
know for sure what's in it, where it came from, when and how it was
harvested, and how fresh and potent it is." p. 121, Herbal Pharmacy

is an everyday miracle.
The benefits of including seaweed's optimum nourishment into your
daily diet are extensive: increased longevity, enhanced immune
functioning, revitalization of the cardiovascular, endocrine,
digestive, and nervous systems, and relief from minor aches and
pains. Health benefits from a wise woman alliance with seaweed
include glossier hair, more luminous skin, less digestive distress,
renewed energy and stamina, rekindled sexual desires, and reawakened
delight in life.
"I am grateful for eating
weeds, and I love cooking at the Wise Woman Center because the
plants are truly loved and honored; I know we taste it in the
food made from them. Food and eating are of supreme importance
to our health on every level, and to the health of our cultures
and our planet." ~ Marie
just read your article regarding the differences between the Scientific,
Heroic and Wise Woman healing traditions, I suddenly understand
something more about myself. I've often adhered to the thinking
of the heroic tradition, blaming myself, my thoughts, feeling
myself pathetic for not rising above mere physical illness. But
my heart always told me something different. It is the reason
why I love to nourish my family, spend time simply touching the
plants in my herb garden, or breathing in the night air. Health
is so much more than an absence of disease. I
feel as if you've just given me permission to live as my heart
tells me to. Thank you Susun. ~ Crystal
"Now the time has come for us to recognize
this invisible thread woven into our lives, this common thread that
runs from our earliest foremothers to us, this thread of love and
nurturance that can lead us out of the maze of planetary destruction,
