Wise Woman Studies with Corinna Wood
Hi I'm Corinna~ I'm a teacher and mentor in the Wise Woman Tradition. My life's work is dedicated to connecting women with the Earth and yourself.

As an earthy young woman, it seemed like I had it all.

I birthed a little family in a solar home out in the woods in community.

The papers hailed me for wildcrafting potent herbal medicines for women's health.

I quickly became a leader in my field—known as a force of nature, leaving legacies in my wake.

Yet my life was a hot mess. 

I was caught in old wounds and traumas. Harmful patterns. Painful relationships.

The only place I felt safe was out in nature. I kept the flame of my truth under cover. 

Stress-induced illnesses popped up left and right. Exhaustion, my constant companion. 

My relationships in shambles, my temper was short. My mind unraveling...

My scream pierced the wall. A neighbor rushed to my door.

“Don’t worry, I'm fine.” She backed away, unconvinced. I shut the door.

Today's paradigm of self-denial and spiritual bypassing runs deep—and I'd learned it well...

"Positive vibes only," I told myself, "What's your problem? Get over it already—all that old fear and anger. Just think good thoughts!"

Yet there's no denying the body. My chronic cough soon worsened into bedridden pneumonia, so deep that no herbs could reach.

Drifting between sleeping and waking, living and dying, I saw myself. 

While I believed in empowering women, when it came to my own relationships—including my relationship with myself . . . I was denying my own feelings, experiences, needs. Denying my truth.

My flame was flickering, sputtering.

I set out on a quest to go deeper, to the roots of healing…

I created space to think and to feel. To rest and to heal. 

I grieved. I sorted. I self-mapped my internal landscape—reflected by the cycles of nature.

Ultimately, I synthesized feminist psychology with holistic healing through the eyes of a naturalist. Grounded in the wisdom of my most trusted mentor, nature herself.

With the tools I developed, to my delight, I got “un-confused.” Clear. Grounded. Replenished.

Reclaiming my capacity to love and be loved. Cultivating secure bond with my life partner.

Whole and safe within myself. My flame burning strong.

With healthy boundaries. Authentic intimacy. Meaningful priorities.

Now I've witnessed similar transformations in countless students—women of all walks of life...

Whether young or old, black or white, straight, queer or lesbian. Many healers themselves: therapists, doctors, midwives, herbalists, leaders.

Reconnecting with their truth and expressing their truth in a healthy, harmonious way.

And finding, at last, clarity on how to discern what's healthy for their heart and soul. 

I'd love to show you how to engage your connection with the Earth as your inner compass. The wise woman way.

Together, we'll navigate your road home to yourself and your truth. You'll gain practical, accessible tools and techniques crafted by, for, and about women. 

Think of it as a medicine chest for your mind, heart, and soul.

Let's get to know each other~

Hey there, sister. I'm a teacher, mentor and writer. A naturalist and a feminist. An herbalist and a gardener. A survivor and a visionary. A mother and a partner. An amazon like you.

Here are 9 snippets from my journey that you might enjoy... 

  1. When I turned 18, my feminist mother gave me 18 books written by women. Alice Walker's "womanist" definition hangs on my wall ever since.

  2. I turned down Ivy League colleges to follow my heart to my life’s work with women and the Earth.

  3. I handwrote the first Red Moon Herbs medicine catalog by candlelight in a chestnut board cabin where I chopped wood for my cookstove and carried water from the spring.

  4. I gave birth in a yurt, a tiny trailer for my kitchen. My doulas heated water outside for the birthing pool that took up most of the yurt.

  5. I was married to a man for a decade. A single mom for a decade. Partnered with a woman for even longer. Plus I long lived in the cauldron of community. The truth is, I've honed my communication skills through countless challenges, immersed in relationships of all kinds.

  6. I fell in love with a woman and fought maternal guilt to move out of the house to live with my beloved. My 16 year old son chose to stay close to the community center where he was born and raised. He quipped, “Mom, don’t the kids usually move out first?” 

  7. Through my menopausal metamorphosis, my intuition led me to declare that the 15th anniversary of my wildly popular Southeast Wise Women Herbal Conference was the last I would produce. The pandemic hit 6 months later.

  8. As wild as I am about the green and growing things, my favorite time of year is the dark season as the year wanes between Halloween and winter solstice.

  9. I’ve been through an ocean of grief and got to the other side.

When I'm not doing my work in the world, what else might I be up to?
