**SOUTHEAST WISE WOMEN Herbal Conference October 12-14, 2018 – REGISTRATION OPEN!
I am delighted that an amazing opportunity has opened up for our gathering . . . we have been busy this winter working behind the scenes on a major shift for the conference. And we are eager to share the big news with you . . .
Welcome wonderful women~
We invite you to join us this fall as we gather once again in sisterhood—celebrating plants, the Earth, and one another.
|Proudly announcing Ubaka Hill & Rosemary Gladstar!
|For this year’s 14th annual conference, we have another powerful group of presenters who will be sharing their gifts with us.
We are thrilled to have internationally acclaimed herbalist, author, and teacher Rosemary Gladstar returning, of the Northeast Women’s Herbal Conference—our foremother herbal event.
And we are delighted to welcome for the first time Ubaka Hill, performer, artist, inspirational speaker, drummer, and master drum teacher for over 30 years.
We have also just released our intensive and workshop descriptions, offered by many of our featured presenters, so check out the Intensives page to see the amazing list of offerings.
|Nestled on 1,400 peaceful acres in the mountains south of Asheville, Kanuga Conference & Retreat Center is a destination in itself! Amid mountain vistas, crisp streams and towering pines, it is flanked by two youth camps at the pristine 30-acre Kanuga Lake. Appreciating our focus on ecological stewardship and empowerment for a diverse group of women and girls, Kanuga is eager to welcome our group of female herbalists to move our beloved gathering to this new home.
Expanded accommodations options
As you may know, our group has been maxing out available housing each year—in particular our handful of double rooms disappeared immediately as soon as registration opened in the spring!
This venue offers a variety of options to meet our participants’ long-standing desire for more comfortable, private, and accessible (especially for elders) accommodations. Fromcamping and economical cabin bunkbeds, to charming cottages and hotel-style rooms in the Kanuga Lake Inn, there’s something for everyone.

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events.
“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
