Women's Herbal Gathering

Registration Now Open!

When my daughter was just 1 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 10 years old, and I have watched her grow, each year, alongside this beautiful event that happens around the Autumnal Equinox.

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, 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 who I truly am. 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.

What the Plants Teach us about Rising Up

The BotanicWise team has been hard at working crafting the 10th Annual Women’s Herbal Gathering (aka MidAtlantic Women’s Herbal Conference). For the first time, this event will be virtual — bringing together women from far and wide.

The theme, Empowerment – What the Plants Teach Us about Rising Up, will be woven throughout the weekend. Each track of classes will develop aspects of Empowerment, weaving together a tapestry, a picture that brings the psyche, the body and the soul together in wholeness.

Light a Candle, Join the Circle

Since all the sessions are happening online, you can hop in to watch a specific class on your schedule. 

If your chosen class isn’t exactly what you need at the moment, you can easily switch to another class.

Women Holding the Circle

When women gather together, we learn from and with one another. We’ve assembled this powerful group of women to share their voices, their stories, their experiences, and their wisdom with us.
