Do you think that how we humans live these days harms everyone?

I know for sure! Through the ages, we have become so far removed from our origins that we have altogether lost sight of our place in the larger whole. This has led to an unhealthy situation for everything and everyone on this planet.

Humans have never been so massively unhealthy, and the earth and its inhabitants are not much better off. I want to do something about this.

My name is Emma and I’m a hagetisse.

That’s an old-fashioned word for wise woman, healer, cunning woman, leech, the herbwife at the edge of the village. Hagetisse literally means hedge rider. I am the link between world and earth, human and nature, this world and others.

My most important task is to inform people who want to get back onto their own path. Who want to take responsibility for their life. I help them see the stories, taught through upbringing and cultural frameworks, for what they are, recognise the voice of their own intuition and find the strength to follow it, on their way to health and happiness.

On this site you can find more about what I do. And I share a lot of knowledge, for instance by means of wise woman blogs, but also through a vademecum in which I have written down my knowledge about medical, magical and edible plants.
