This November the Hierophant hosted a one day workshop with Susun Weed.

This is part of Susan’s tour of Australia speaking in various areas. Susun talked for six hours with no notes or prompts and shared her knowledge and practice of Wise Woman herbal infusions.

This is based on using herbal infusions from a range of medicine – food herbs as a regular part of your daily health regime. The plant range was dandelion, red clover, oat straw, burdock, chickweed and nettle. Yes almost common weeds but containing potent medicine power in a safe way.

Simple home based herbal medicine, capable of being carried out in any kitchen. This is herbal medicine as a tonic, restorative, prevention practice, exactly the place where herbs really shine.

Susan’s books and CD were for sale as well and apart from the herbal infusions  practice her knowledge and experience in the area of Woman’s heath is first class.

Susun is based in USA so to have a chance to hear learn and talk with her is a real treat. Look up her you tube videos they are good.

Vale Isabel Shipard

News has filtered through to me of the death of Isabel Shipard. Her book on herbs is a great resource and well worth having in the library of anyone interested in herbs.

In the plethora of herbal books for the lay person her work stands out for its first rate information. The closest I came to Isabel was doing the Pindari Herbs course with her understudy Jayne.
