Asia Suler is a writer, teacher, herbalist and energy worker who lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western NC. She is the creator and concoctress behind One Willow Apothecaries, an online library for earth nourished healing, handcrafted medicine and alchemical gateways of education. Asia’s work is a unique combination of western and energetic herbalism, stone medicine, earth-centered shamanism and intuitive healing… but most days she’ll just say that she is someone who has fallen deeply in love with the world. Asia’s popular yearly online program, Intuitive Plant Medicine, is a guided initiation and cozy community dwelling for those who are ready to reopen the pathways of communication between themselves and the natural world.
Asia began her journey into healing and plant-based medicine after early years of chronic pain. The experience— which pushed her into a deep search for healing, both within and without— led her to the altar of the green world. She began her formal study of herbs in 2011 with Juliet Blankespoor and the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine and has continued to study, seek, listen and learn ever since. Asia holds a B.A in English, Anthropology and Native American studies from Vassar College and a Reiki Master degree. Her training includes work with shamanic dream teacher Robert Moss, psychiatrist Brian Weiss, and Chinese stone medicine teachers Sarah Thomas and Jeffrey Yuen of the Jade Purity Lineage.
Asia works with clients at her apothecary in the mountains of Western North Carolina, as well as online and at a distance. She facilitates workshops at schools and conferences across the country and is blessed to work intimately with people and plants, spirit and stones.
