I have studied with Maia for a couple of years now, first at West Chester University in her Botanical Medicine course, then at her Community Herbalist Training program in Chestnut Hill, and now in the Herbal Wellness Coaching program. When I met Maia, I knew that I found a true holistic health mentor. My background is … Continue Reading…
So much happened during the three months I worked with Maia. Looking back, the changes amaze me. For the first time in many years, I’ve made it through an East Coast winter without suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder, and this is several months after a death in the immediate family! But beyond that, I’ve really … Continue Reading…
I have had the pleasure to have worked with Maia for the past few years. Maia and I worked as a team to holistically treat, with excellent results, all the patients we had in common. She has an academic knowledge of Herbology and is an excellent instructor. Anyone who desires to utilize herbs in their treatment plan … Continue Reading…
Witch Camp is the best thing that ever happened to my mornings. I've always had beautiful stories in my head. And when I've had to write them out, I would. But there are so many times when I don't "have to," so the beauty stays inside. Why Witch Camp works for me? It allows whatever is inside this ol' brain to get … Continue Reading…
I’ve always been deeply intuitive—I’ve always known things, always gotten to the answers differently than most people I know. But I didn’t come at the world that way. I was a rational, articulate, creative thinker who always had words and smart explanations and solid common sense. But then my marriage exploded, and I … Continue Reading…
It wasn’t until I was well into my 30s that I really understood the cycles of the moon… … which is a little scary considering I grew up in a place where I could actually see the night sky. I loved learning the constellations’ shapes and stories but Mama Luna didn’t draw me much as […]
I found the first bird dead under the power line in the field behind my teacher’s house. The second bird followed the next day. Both were small and black, their wings extended as if they were still trying to fly. I mentioned them to my teacher over breakfast. “I think there’s something wrong with the […]
“What time’s your flight?” “I don’t know; you bought the ticket.” I was distracted, working on a new course, and immediately forgot about the conversation. ‘Til I got a text from my sister: What time’s your flight? “Hon!” I call to my husband, “What time’s my flight?” You can see where this is going, right?

I got my first tattoo when I finished my Master’s degree. After three universities and enough course credits for a PhD, finally finishing something, degree wise, felt like a big deal… and I wanted to mark the occasion. Many people (especially my parents!) thought it odd that I chose to literally mark my body. Permanently. […]
I’ve been thinking a lot about my body. Yes, like all of you, I compare my body to the bodies on TV. I examine my asymmetrical face, knowing it precludes me from modeling or movie stardom. I watch as my hair becomes increasingly silver and know that the image I present to the world is quickly […]
In my newsletter last week, I wrote about the many ways to work with herbs and how you don’t always have to ingest an herb to get its Medicine. This came up again this week when a friend was mourning not being able to take her beloved Hawthorn since it is contraindicated for pregnancy. […]
