Want more of Paikea's story? Here's her life in own words:

I grew up in China and came to America for graduate school. I earned two Masters, one in Computer Science and the other Electrical Engineering. I worked in corporate and startups, writing software code. But in 2013, I got rid of my possessions and travelled the country in an old RV. The traveling and nature immersion awakened my true calling, forced me to dig into my Social Anxiety and Complex PTSD in order to heal.

I've journeyed so, so, so far after those "dark nights of the soul". I'm happy now and admire the wise woman I've become. I'm very skilled a healer, loved by friends and community, and I'm fulfilled in my work of healing people and serving Mother Earth.

I believe for all modern person, true healing need two things: 1) Restoring an intimate relation with the natural world. 2) Repairing "inner wilderness", meaning the personal, societal, and ancestral trauma that we all carry. "The Wild" is where we'll find peace and courage, to go from Illness, Wellness, to Fitness and Wholeness. Again and again.

I no longer live in a van, but is still down by the river in rural Kentucky - a tiny house with two horses and friend's 400 acres. I continue to align my work and relation with my values: teaching plants foraging, practicing acupuncture with integrative tools, and organizing intentional community and rewilding conferences. It's a wild and joyous journey, come heal, laugh and thrive with me! www.Paikea.Love/events
