Saddened by Susun's Behavior

By Inyreye - Sep 14 2019
Read more
I am shocked at how poorly Susun treats her followers/callers. These are the very people that allow her to exist on this platform. If she continues to treat every caller like they're a dimwit, she will have no one to listen or call on her before long. Talking over people, dissmissing their thoughts or concerns, rude crude responses...leave that to Howard Sterns of the world. Why have a show like this when she clearly has little deisre to speak with or educate those who are beneath her level of knowlege or skill? As a person who has studied human behavor most of my life, I strongly suggest she stick to writing books and allow the heart centered, knowledgeable beings around her to respond to the followers and callers. She's too high and mighty for her own good, her behavior on this VERY PUBLIC platform is a detriment to her life's purpose and work. I'll end by saying that I absolutly love Susun Weed and her work in this world, but I can't listen to her treat her loyal followers so poorly.

Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions follwed by a 30 minute interview with Rev Barbara Grace.

Creator and Keeper of the Elder Midwife History Gathering Project. From a very young age, Barbara Grace was a midwife. “Innately I knew that the power of touch and being a quiet witness could heal and calm.  At births with all species, and in all situations.”

Graduating from seminary school at 19, Rev. Grace went on to speak all over North America about hands on healing and developing our own innate intuition. Then in the late ‘70’s she began her apprentice training with a traditional midwife, to become a midwife herself.  Always a change-maker in the often oppositional worlds of our personal human rights and the laws of the legal system, she has consistently made a stand for choice, even when she became an ‘outlaw’ in the process!

Rev. Grace is mom to 3 grown sons and “Morai” (Irish for ‘grandmother’) to 6 grand-darlings. A life-long advocate of gentle birthing and human rights in childbirth, she has now created the Elder Midwife History Gathering project. Please learn more about this important project at: http://www.facebook.com/eldermidwifehistorygathering
