Maia Toll Tapping Into Your Wild Wisdom

 

I'm so excited to share with you Maia Toll coming back on the Peaceful Power Podcast. You can find her first interview here. It has been a full circle moment for myself that I share on the podcast. Our first interview I was so nervous to share it as we talked about witch and identifying as a witchy woman. Maia shares about her evolution with the word witch and how it has changed over the years.

Maia Bio

Maia Toll is the author of the best selling and award-winning Wild Wisdom Series. With over 100,000 copies sold, The Illustrated HerbiaryThe Illustrated Bestiary, and The Illustrated Crystallary have inspired a line of puzzles and oracle decks. The seeds for this series were planted years earlier when Maia apprenticed with a traditional healer in Ireland where she spent extensive time studying the growing cycles of plants, the alchemy of medicine making, and the psychology of working with humans and illness. These experiences reawakened an interest in natural philosophy and mysticism which had been a large part of Maia’s academic studies at The University of Michigan and New York University.

Translating the lessons of the natural world for the modern seeker led Maia to open a small shop called Herbiary in 2006. Herbiary now has locations in both Asheville, NC and Philadelphia, PA (and online!). Maia was called “a real life Professor Sprout from Harry Potter” by Forbes magazine and can be found in a PBS special, The New York Times, and National Geographic Traveler. She has taught Botanical Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, West Chester University, and Pennsylvania Hospital. She regularly teaches at conferences and festivals where she encourages people to use patterns and metaphors from the natural world to help them understand and grow within their own lives. Maia lives in Asheville, North Carolina, with her life and business partner and their two ridiculously spoiled dogs.
