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.
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.
