01 Jan Amber Young
My name is Amber Daniele Marie Wirth-Young. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and currently reside on the traditional lands of the Squaxin, Nisqually and Coast Salish Peoples in Olympia, WA. I am a child of an Aquarius Sun and Scorpio Moon. This celestial alignment has propagated the humanitarian spirit that is innate in me. I love facilitating women’s circles and honoring and practicing the Wise Woman Ways.
My intention is to help support Womban in their birthing year and beyond through ritual arts and herbal medicines. I was recently initiated as Mother after free-birthing my daughter Sequoia Moon. I have been profoundly changed and humbled by the experience of supporting and nourishing life through pregnancy, giving birth, and mothering.
I have been an educator for 10 years and am a certified teacher who studied anthropology and elementary education at Western Washington University and received a Masters in Education through the University of Washington. I have studied herbalism through Sajah Popham’s School of Evolutionary Herbalism and alchemical Earth Wisdom through the Academy of Oracle Arts with Grandmother Two Clouds. Additionally, I have over a decade of experience in herbalism through working with plants in my own garden and sustainably and ethically wildcrafting and making medicines, as well as self-inquiry practices through research and study and taking course work, workshops, and programming focused on herbal medicines and energy work.
Other passions I hold include but are not limited to: working with plant allies and medicines, playing music and kirtan, attending/facilitating ceremonies, gardening and tending the land, foraging and wildcrafting, taking nature walks and hikes, rock hounding and reading.
Amber will be sharing Herbal & Holistic Supports Through the Birthing Year.
