A wisdom is the head of the Women's Circle in her village. She is chosen by the other women in the circle. She is chosen for her skills in healing and foretelling the weather. This is a position of great authority. She will decide things like when to plant crops and when to harvest. The Wisdom is generally the equal to the mayor but in some cases can be his superior. Traditionally, the wisdom is almost always at odds with the mayor.

A wisdom is chosen for life and very rarely leaves before her death. Depending on the area the wisdom can also be called a Guide, Healer, Wise One or a Seeker.
