Episode 14: Milla Prince

Milla Prince The Woman Who Married a Bear on So You Wanna Be A Witch

Milla Prince of The Woman Who Married A Bear and Fireweed & Nettle Herbals is the witch of my dreams. She’s a fiercely smart and hilarious folk herbalist, activist, and writer who single-handedly changed my life. To be clear, I’ve met only Milla once. But once was enough. Her passion charges through her work and the vulnerability she shares with us as she navigates the joys and struggles of running a business while trying to save the world.

In this episode of So You Wanna Be A Witch we talk about how Milla made me cry, cultural appropriation and the longing of the landless, business plans and the lack thereof, burnout, and salt. Milla speaks honestly about the sticky bits of product-based businesses, alternative economies, and the medicine that she is offering to this world.

  1. Is there anything similar or covering the same topics as Spirit Weavers in the south east? I would love to do something like that but I’m literally in the other corner of the country and it’s just not in the cards this year (literally and figuratively)

  2. Hi Lindsey! There are some similar gatherings in the southeast. Firefly Gathering and the Southeast Wise Women Herbal Conference in North Carolina, and the Florida Herbal Conference and Florida Earthskills Gathering are some that come to mind. I’ll be at Firefly and likely Southeast Wise Women this year. In general, I would search for primitive skills, earth skills, and herbalism gatherings. Hope you are able to find a good event to attend!
