OFFICIAL BIO  


Alena is living proof that absolutely anyone can learn to live a healthy, soulful, and ethical life given the right support.

Despite a rocky start to adult life she miraculously managed to train and work in a diverse range of industries - and leave a mark in each one. From public relations to filmmaking, residential construction to permaculture design she holds qualifications in many disciplines, including education, somatic therapies, and a Black Belt in Hapkido. 

After wandering for years - navigating traumas big and small - Alena realised her knack for sensing what people need to reconnect with so they can finally heal what's been holding them back.

Since 2009 Alena has been writing researching, and founding supportive online communities in the tens of thousands. Since 2020 she has been mentoring women with her programs, - inside the Soul Mama Community - and inspiring many with her podcast
