The sixth annual Midwest Women’s Herbal Conference, titled Honoring the Wise Women of the Past, Present and Future, will bring together international herbalists and authors for a gathering of the feminine June 9 through 11 at Camp Helen Brachman, in Almond, Wisconsin.

       Speakers Tammi Sweet, Ubaka Hill, Lisa Ganora, Whapio and Robin Rose Bennett are just some of the presenters in more than 60 workshops and plant walks. Also, Kids Camp and Teen Spiral will offer unique programming for the next generation of herbalists.

                Three-day, in-depth classes leading up to the conference include Clinical Herbalism, with Sweet; a Radical Doula program with Whapio, of the Matrona; and a Botanical Drawing Art Immersion, with Wendy Hollender.

                Three-hour, pre-conference workshops include Food and the Hunger for Connection, with Jessica Prentice; Herbal Pharmacy: Outside the Box Preparations, with Ganora; Healing Our Strong and Tender Hearts Spiritually, Emotionally and Physically, with Rose Bennett; Music as Medicine, with Hill; and Eldership, Peacekeeping and Holding Transformation, with Whapio.

                The conference village offers personal growth workshops, singing, dancing, plant walks, nourishing meals, swimming, campfires and magical “in-between” times. A Red Tent communal space invokes the spirit of generations of women and celebrates women’s inner wisdom.
