Wise Woman Tradition teacher & leader
A seasoned Wise Woman Herbalist, teacher, visionary, and mother, Corinna Wood is founder and director of Southeast Wise Women and the Southeast Wise Women Herbal Conference—and co-founder of Red Moon Herbs. Corinna has a rich grounding of depth and breadth in herbal medicine as well as permaculture, non-violent communication, and spiritual psychology.
As a young woman, Corinna studied biology and herbal medicine--including a long-term apprenticeship with groundbreaking Wise Woman herbalist Susun Weed. For over 25 years, Corinna has been practicing, teaching, and carrying on the Wise Woman Tradition, based in honoring women and the Earth.
Corinna's life work is to empower women to trust their inner wisdom and the cycles of nature. She has taught hundreds of workshops in herbal medicine, women's health and natural healing, including 17 years of the annual Wise Woman Immersion program, empowering women in their relationships to the earth, the plants, and themselves.
Today, Corinna is a leader and mentor in the women’s herbal community, with extensive training and experience in both herbal medicine and spiritual psychology for women.
Corinna was one of the early members of her home community, Earthaven Ecovillage, collaborating with others to bring a vision of sustainable living into manifestation. Corinna is grateful to be part of a web of wise women worldwide who are working collectively and personally to heal and honor ourselves and the Earth.
A note from Corinna about the new Saturday Studies program . . .
“I’ve been teaching the Wise Woman Tradition of herbal medicine for women for twenty-five years. More and more, I’ve been hearing from students, ‘I had no idea how deep the Wise Woman Tradition goes, how it would nourish my heart and soul as a woman—as well as my body—or how much the connection with sisters would mean to me!’
Indeed, the Wise Woman Tradition encompasses nourishment on every level. Loving ourselves is at the core just as much as herbal medicine and nourishing foods. This year, I’ve decided to offer the new Saturdays program in which understanding our minds and hearts, and learning to love ourselves, are our primary focus. In addition, of course, we will also go outside to connect with and learn from the plants themselves!
I’m very excited to explore this Wise Woman Tradition body of work, with this circle of sisters."
