Study with Susun Weed via Apprenticeship,
Workshop, or Correspondence Course
Susun Weed 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.
Teachers show us how to learn, but Susun's dramatic and colorful
yet easy and friendly teaching style sets her apart. As a green
witch, she approaches healing medicine as a living manifestation
of the Goddess.
She offers us a chance to get to know plants from the inside
out, slowly, with the same respect and patience we show people
who are revealing their personalities. When we open to the mysteries
of the plant world and flow from the heart, when we honor the
Earth and learn to heal with nourishment, compassionate listening,
and simple ceremonies, then we are dancing in the Tao, spiraling
through grief and joy, healing the Wise
