Southeast Women's Herbal Conference

Another herbal conference has come and gone.  It was so beautiful up in Black Mountain this time of year.  Chilly in the morning but warming up so nicely, it was so lovely to sit in session soaking up all the wisdom, then move to the chairs by the lake and soak up all the warm sunshine!  I learn more and more each year as I deepen my own herbal practice.  This year was no different.  I will say that one of the highlights for me was listing to Susun Weed.  Just such a wise, caring, energetic spirit.  She seemed to really connect with the audience, no matter how large, and was truly engaging and caring.  Her knowledge just soaks into you without any effort.  She could talk on any subject with ease, interjecting just the perfect number of personal stories, songs, and tips.   She has an ability to just sense what the audience needs and reach down into your soul and leave that healing touch!  I want to hear more from her!!

I have listened to/watched youtube videos with Susun Weed, read her books, read her web site, poured over articles by Susun, but it doesn't begin to compare with the in person experience.  I see she will be at the Florida Herbal Conference in February 2014.  I encourage anyone able, to go listen to her in person, it will be a session you will not soon forget!

I can't wait for next year.  And for those eager to participate, I see the dates have been set!  October 10-12, 2014.  See you all in Black Mountain!
