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, a small Appalachian-grown business that offers handmade and heartfelt medicine. She is also the muse behind Woolgathering & Wildcrafting, a blog detailing the potent magic of good medicine: plants and dreams, earth skills and developing a deep connection with the land.
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, where she fell irrevocably in love with plants. She began her formal study of herbs with Juliet Blankespoor and the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine and has continued to study, seek, listen and learn ever since.
Asia’s work is a unique combination of western and energetic herbalism, stone medicine, earth-centered shamanism and intuitive healing. She 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 practitioner Sarah Thomas of the Jade Purity Lineage. She teaches locally for The Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine, The Blue Ridge School of Herbal Medicine and Ashevillage as well as at her apothecary studio on The Island in Marshall, NC.
Asia facilitates workshops at schools and gatherings across the country and is blessed to work intimately with people and plants, spirit and stones.
