Walking Wisdom with Antonia Malchik

Do you remember learning to walk?

Have you watched a baby learn to walk?

Have you walked mindfully paying attention to how your foot hits the ground, what you see around you, and how you engage with the world around you?

Have you ever had a conversation with someone and you got impatient, in a good way, because she was sharing the most intriguing stories that were clever and so honestly open hearted?

I want to invite you into my conversation with Antonia Malchik, freelance writer and stay at home mom. Antonia has written essays and articles for AeonThe AtlanticOrionHigh Country News, and a variety of other publications, and worked formerly as a church secretary in Austria, an IT journalist in Australia, and a barista in Russia. A Walking Life, about the past and future of walking’s role in our humanity, is her first book. She lives in northwest Montana with her husband and 2 children.

She dances the dance of moms that you may dance too – the dance of your own creative dreams, your children, your partner and the dance with the world.

I learned so much in this engaging, wisdom-filled episode with Antonia. I was inspired by her dedication to her creative path, the love for her family, and the terrain of this world and how we walk it. I know you’ll have some aha’s while joining us.

In today’s episode, we’ll explore:

  • The wise realities of the dance as a mom, a creative, and a woman
  • The 2 things that made her interested in walking and inspired to write her first book, A Walking Life
  • Is walking a freedom we as a society are losing touch with?
  • What is walkability & how can you get involved as an advocate
  • When was the last time you walked with awareness?
