with Malaika MaVeena Darville
(Season 2 | Episode 75)
An Open Nester, Mom, and a Sacred Journey
Malaika was a mother, wife, business partner, conscious dance movement leader… And in one moment – it all was taken from her. When she found out that her partner was cheating on her and the relationship ended, a completely new chapter of life was born.
In the middle of the interview I joined Malaika in dance – it was just the thing to do. You can hear her vibe at the links below.
Life isn’t static. Life is the dynamic change that happens between day & night, between pleasure & pain, between sunshine & rain. In other words, life is movement! – Malaika MaVeena Darville
5Elements, Ecstatic Dance, Facilitator Training, Spiritual Retreats & Tantra – Bali & Worldwide
IN MY ELEMENTS is all about embodiment. Taking the tantric approach to life, which means embracing the Goddess and both our light and shadow sides.
It is my highest goal to facilitate the awakening of humanity to remember who and what we are, to be true stewards of the earth, so that we, as a collective, re-connect with our divinity. As awakened beings, we can restore this unique and beautiful planet to the Garden of Eden she has always been. Together, we can create a sustainable culture based on love and respect for all sentient beings.
My tools of activation are ancient earth wisdom ceremonies, dance, connection and music. Education that is based on the wisdom of those before us; those that knew how to live in and build communities that are harmony with the earth and the ocean and living in our human bodies.
Whether it is for a personal healing, Sacred Shiva Shakti cacao ceremony, the blessing of a new baby, the opening of a gala event or an initiation ceremony to acknowledge the coming of age of a teenage girl or boy, I have ceremonies based on ancient wisdom adapted to address contemporary times to bring people into a more open heart and therefore connected space.
All of my efforts are to assist people to see what they already are, to love and honor what they already have, and to lift the veil of darkness that has been keeping them in the illusion of separation from our sacred earth and from the Beloved which is always right here NOW! Embodiment means to live in your body as a temple and claim your birth right of full Abundance in all areas of your life!
