Paikea's story in her own words: I grew up in China and came to the States for graduate school. I earned a Masters in Electrical Engineering, and a second Masters in Computer Science. While writing code in IT and exploring humanitarian interest - I was a Big sister and a hospice volunteer, I came to understand my own social anxiety and Complex PTSD.

In 2013 I quit the programming job to travel in a RV, and gradually came out of “dark nights of the soul”. I started training in herbalism and acupuncture since 2014, and healed myself from digestive and autoimmune illnesses.

I'm healed now and love who I am what I do. I'm deeply compassionate and deeply capable of supporting others on their journey. I no longer live in a van, although still down by the river, among homesteading friends in central Kentucky. I teach foraging, organize re-wilding conference, weave baskets, joyfully serving people and Earth.
