Women's Herbal Gathering

When my daughter was just one year old, I held her in my arms, squirming and squawking, as I addressed the first BotanicWise Women’s Herbal Gathering (then known as the MidAtlantic Women’s Herbal Conference). I can’t believe that she is already 12 years old, and I have watched her grow, each year, alongside this beautiful event that happens in late summer.

This gathering, in a way, is for her.

The women that gather every year to celebrate plants and each other are her teachers.They show her how to honor the world of nature, how to support and love each other, how to reach out and help a stranger, how to celebrate one’s body as something perfect and beautiful, how to be quiet and listen, and how to stand up and be heard.They show her that the essence of life is to dig deep into one’s inner genius, shake it up, and let it shine radiantly.

Year after year, I watch her take these lessons to heart, and I learn from her.

I learn that empowerment starts in these moments of being included, loved, supported, and encouraged to be my true self. As a woman, I struggle with that. I hide. I am quiet. I avoid conflict. I am afraid.

Now is the time, and I am learning to spread my roots deep and wide, reaching for nourishment and connection. From that rootedness, I can rise up, strong and radiant. I can stand up for myself. I can stand up for my daughter. I can stand up for others.

Join me for the best weekend of the year!

The BotanicWise team has been hard at work crafting the 11th Annual Women’s Herbal Gathering. For the first time, this event will be held at the end of August, in person, at a new venue, Stonehedge Gardens, Tamaqua, Pennsylvania.

The theme, The Nature of Impermanence, encourages us to savor the present moment and step fully into the experience in real time, just like the world of plants around us.

Each track of classes will develop aspects of plant medicine, weaving together a tapestry that brings the psyche, the body, and the soul together in wholeness.
