"Healing Wise nourishes. Healing Wise springs from love. Healing Wise flows through compassion. Healing Wise is as natural as birth, as certain as death. Healing Wise is the joy of the individual and the strength of the community.
If you think the only health care options are the established, scientific way, and alternative methods, it is because the third - an intuitive, individualized way, the unique Wise Woman way - is invisible.
Healing Wise is done with the eyes. Healing Wise is done by hand. Healing Wise is charged with meaning. Healing Wise is in tune with the seasons. Healing Wise is wholing and holy. Healing Wise is letting go. Healing Wise is timing."
