A weekend to learn, celebrate, and connect

The Southeast Wise Women Herbal Conference offers a unique opportunity to participate in a vibrant and joyful gathering of women who are dedicated to health and wholeness for our communities, the planet and ourselves.

Surrounded by the ancient Blue Ridge Mountains, our venue at Lake Eden offers a beautiful, serene backdrop for over 60 workshops and classes in herbalism, nutrition, personal growth and natural healing.

We invite you to renew your spirit, explore your power and engage in the extraordinary experience of the Southeast Wise Women Herbal Conference. Join founder Corinna Wood and a plethora of renowned teachers for a weekend retreat where women of all ages gather.
