Women have long held official and unofficial roles worldwide as healers, midwives, herbalists, shamans, and transmitters of sacred knowledge in service to the community. This course will explore some of that history, as well as the spiritual practices, processes, and personalities of women in the modern era who are drawing on indigenous and nontraditional healing modalities to bring spiritual harmony, bodily health, and emotional balance to their cultures and the world at large. Among the topics explored will be curanderismo, sacred medicine traditions, herbalism, hands-on healing, midwifery, channeling, psychic healing, clairvoyant diagnosing, and more.
