Medical Anthropologist &
Co-funder of Guided Wellbeing
Once a dreamer and a traveler, Alicja pursued her studies in psychology and anthropology hoping to find some answers, or at least some more interesting questions to ponder. Curious of the ancient lore of Tibetan medicine, she wandered the Himalayan foothills, gathering crumbs of knowledge in-between the crumbs at the bottom of her bag.
However, life had its own ideas, and Alicja has spent the last several years bringing up her kids and being there for her young family. She became passionate about all things handmade, getting tangled up in yarn, endless scarves and elaborate winter garments (in perhaps unnecessary amounts).
Moving her academic pursuits onto the back burner, Alicja learned to bake bread, to make toys for her kids, and nourish them with with the stories she had gathered in her travelling sack.
Exploring the local meadows during lock down, weaving nettles and munching on dandelions, she discovered the grounding and re-balancing qualities of natural handicraft, learning the art of frugal sustainability.
Now she felt eager to share what she learnt, about living the eco lifestyle and the many joys and benefits we gain from reconnecting with the Earth and our deeper selves.
When Kate shared her vision and invited Alicja to collaborate on it, she could only say YES!
In the future, she is looking to rediscover the academic side of things, and pursue PhD qualifications. She is dusting off her old books (and her keyboard) and starting this new nature adventure.
