About Us

We are activists--for women, the environment and social justice--and we contribute our unique and individual talents because we believe in building a world that emulates non-competitive, supportive, celebratory, and encouraging relationships between women.

Some of us are neighbors. Some of us are mothers. Some of us are teachers. All of us are herbalists and earth-based healers in the Wise Woman Tradition. We are blessed to collaborate together, to work close to home, and to have the opportunity to focus both on the mission of Southeast Wise Women and also on the undervalued work of raising children, growing organic food, creating sustainable and renewable life systems, teaching and healing ourselves and the Earth! May every woman be so blessed.

Connecting with ourselves

We support a connection to the self by fostering self love, body acceptance, innate intuition and deep nourishment.

Connecting with the earth

We encourage a connection to the earth by tuning into her cycles and connecting to earth-based healing traditions that include local plants as medicine.

Connecting with our sisters

We foster a connection to each other by weaving a web of sisterhood that is supportive and non-competitive, one that builds connections between women of all backgrounds, faiths, colors, shapes and sizes.
