Fourth Annual Midwest Women’s Herbal Conference in Wisconsin
Jan 27, 2015 10:32PM
The fourth annual Midwest Women’s Herbal Conference will be held June 5, 6 and 7, at Camp Helen Brachman, in Almond, Wisconsin (between Milwaukee and Minneapolis, Minnesota), with guest speakers, herbalists and authors for both newbies and experienced herbalists. Dr. Jody Noe, Leslie Tierra and many other speakers complement more than 60 workshops, plant walks and a kids and teen camp.
Serving the Great Lakes and beyond, the conference is a “wholistic” gathering of the feminine, including a wide spectrum of Midwest herbalists and Earth-based speakers on topics that include herbs for family health, wild edibles, fermentation, permaculture, movement, herbal wisdom, the Wise Woman way and much more.
Highlights include swimming, evening entertainment, a marketplace, film screenings and roundtable discussions on building herbal community. The organizers have experienced herbal apprenticeships in the Wise Woman tradition, and the Red Tent is a communal space invoking the spirit of generations of women and celebrating women’s inner wisdom.
In addition to the main conference, five longer preconference workshops will be held, including Herbal First-Aid, Herbs for Lyme disease, Tongue and Pulse Diagnosis, Herbs for Body Systems and Holistic Sexuality.
