“The wise woman as herbalist, spiritual guide, and psychologist – I recognized at last that this was the ultimate journey I was on, its goal a way of being in the world that I had longed for all my life.”

Over a decade ago, I left a seaside village in Massachusetts summoned by The Mother Forest of North Carolina. Here I have rooted and grown my life in partnership with the land, living simply, nestled in a 680 square foot cabin, on fifteen acres in a high mountain river valley.
I am at home at the confluence of the French Broad River and Spring Creek. I spend my days growing and tending a stone terraced vegetable and herb garden, putzing in my apothecary, writing and embodying the wisdom I learn from Nature, having soul conversations with women around the world, traipsing through the mountains, and living in deep friendship with the creek, the forest, and the wild herbs and animals who have made The Mother Forest their home as well.
As the founder of A Woman’s Nature School, I inspire and encourage us as women to follow our deep joy and desires as we conceive, gestate, and birth our Great Work in service of the Sacred Feminine and the restoration of Nature.
Reweaving and reconnecting a woman’s inner nature with outer Nature is my Great Work. Nourishing our energetic Earth bodies through herbs and wild crafting our lives is the golden thread I follow. My Nature-Based Feminine Wisdom Coaching focuses on how to use healthy food and joyful movement, menstrual and lifestyle practices, as well as herbs to support wellness and to bring balance so the body and soul can strengthen and heal themselves.
For over twenty years, I have midwifed hundreds of women and countless projects, organizations, and businesses at the regional, national and global levels. My unique Nature-Based Feminine Wisdom retreats have inspired thousands of women who long to live wild and authentic lives rooted in soul and grounded in joy.
I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree from Ambassador University, an M.Ed from Endicott College and I have nine credits within a PhD Program of Women’s Spirituality. I have taught in community colleges and adult education centers from Boston to Dallas, and am certified in the Art of Hosting from Berkana Institute. I am a Certified Mindvalley Health Coach, the premier personal growth and learning platform, www.mindvalley.com. I am also a Certified Red School Menstruality Mentor, www.redschool.net. I have completed a year-long herbal apprenticeship in sacred plant medicine through the Gaia School of Healing and Earth Education.
Having spent 20 years as a Certified Personal Trainer, my unique soul-centric business and educational approach puts the question that matters the most to a woman in the center of our conversation: “How can I reclaim my wild soul and instinctual body as I also restore Nature and meet humanity’s deep needs in joy?”
“I had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Edveeje. We did both a book club and a follow up field guide in order to deepen the practices brought forth in GAIA CODEX. It was powerful and precise. If you are considering working with Edveeje you have my highest recommendation. She is a woman of deep integrity, a catalysis for awakening and for truly coming Home, both to ourselves and to our Mother Earth.”
“Edveeje’s positive, open and encouraging nature makes it easy for you to step up into a greater leadership role within your life and business. Connecting with Edveeje was a powerful catalyst for developing my work with The Nature Process and her belief in my work enabled me to develop and run the program and turn the course into a book (now in its 2nd edition).”
The gifts of the Wise Woman “are hard won and take a long time to cook before you get to serve them up in a thick, nourishing herb-scented stew. But once the stew is ready the Wise Woman is a critical and integral part of her wider community. Her gifts are the gifts of the land to which she completely belongs; her voice is the voice of the Earth, the voice of the Otherworld which echoes from the depths of the Wells. Her gift are the gifts which heal; she can use them to heal the Wasteland, reweaving it back into fertility, one thread at a time.”

Soul Conversations With Edveeje
I believe conversations shape and change the world. Much can be alchemized, transformed, and created through deep and soulful conversation, which is why we long for an anam cara, a wise soul-friend, with whom we can share our deepest selves and our dreams. I am passionate about having inspiring conversations with women who want to create soul-infused lives and joy-filled businesses as they move through three essential and powerful soul-epics of life: the Apprentice, the Artisan, and the Master.
“My weekly soul conversations with Edveeje have been a beacon of pure insight, a wellspring of inspiration, and a sanctuary of profound support for me. Thanks to Edveeje’s wise counsel, vibrant clarity, deeply-lived earth wisdom, fierce truth telling, and abundant upliftment and celebration, I now feel fully embedded in my true calling in the world.”
“Edveeje coached me through the early stages of my own social enterprise, always encouraging me to work in ways that are both effective and authentic to the vision and mission of my work. Edveeje brings clarity, purpose and wise, loving council. She is a hugely encouraging, intuitive and highly effective coach.”
About A Woman’s Nature School
Imagine a world in which women’s womb-based wisdom is the compass that points humanity True North. Imagine a world in which our inner feminine nature reflects and embodies the power, vibrancy, and true life-giving wildness of Nature.
A Woman’s Nature School believes in that world. We believe the connection between a woman’s inner nature and outer nature is an emerging paradigm of Feminine Leadership in which we women access the wisdom of our wombs (through our monthly cycle and pelvic bowls) and the wisdom of Nature to inform, inspire, and guide how we lead our lives, families, communities, organizations, causes, and companies.
Women are birthing The Great Work, and as such, the metaphor of “conception, pregnancy, birthing and midwifery” is an emerging feminine form of business development and operations. Accessing and nourishing the depths of our pelvic bowl, the sacred center of our souls and our womb wisdom, is an emerging art form in business leadership.
A Woman’s Nature School co-creates a metaphysical womb in which a woman’s innovative ideas and dreams can be conceived, nourished, and birthed as vocations and businesses that make the world a better place for everyone.

“Edveeje has a high intuition, an uncanny instinct for picking up on the unsaid and unnamed in the field, and great practical business acumen. She can care for the heart and soul of your work while also meeting the ‘real’ world challenges of running a business. ”

Our Nature-Based Feminine Wisdom Coaching and creativity model is “eco-psycho-spiritual” in nature, which means women choose to work with us because we are passionate about putting a woman’s soul and spirit, as well as our darling Planet Earth’s well-being, back into the leadership and business equation.
Women are being invited as leaders in a Great Renewal in service of the Sacred Feminine and the restoration of Nature. The Womb and Nature are sources of feminine leadership and wisdom. It is time we accessed The Creative Matrix of the Womb and of Nature herself.
