Who are the Wise Women?
The wise women were healers of European descent. From ancient times, these women healed using their knowledge of plants, which was passed down through the generations, from one woman to another. Often times this knowledge was passed down orally, from a grandmother to granddaughter or mother to daughter. Sometimes they used "recipe books" to keep records of which plants they used to treat certain disorders. You see, these women had a very close and personal relationship with nature. Not only would they use plants, and other natural materials for healing, these women were in tune with nature's energies and cycles, and held them as sacred.
Sadly, more than 50,000 of these women were unjustly killed throughout Europe and North America, with the majority of the persecution taking place between the mid 1500's to the mid 1700's during the height of the witch hunts. Those that weren't killed by hanging, drowning or burning, were imprisoned and subjected to torture and public humiliation. Thousands of men were also killed trying to protect these innocent healers. Because of this terrible oppression, many of those that remained were forced to quit healing or hide their practice in order to save their lives, but fortunately some of these women bravely protected this wisdom, and now we can heal ourselves and our families without fear of persecution.
This new era of Wise Women is a powerful shift toward reclaiming our right to heal ourselves and those we choose. There are cures for cancer, auto-immune disorders like HIV, and countless other diseases and disorders all available to us in the form of safe medicinal plants. You have been deceived by a medical system that, as a whole, seems much more interested in profits than the well being of those in their care. This new generation of healers comes from all ethnicities. And now we have both knowledge and access to healing plants from all over the globe! The present Wise Women also come from all religious backgrounds. What we all have in common, is that we all want to reconnect with the healer and nurturer within, and rekindle our own love affair with nature.
