An INITIATION touches you so deeply it changes you forever from the inside out. It is something you can not learn online or in books, it must be experienced in the flesh!
Initiation is a rite of passage marking entrance or acceptance into a group or society. Traditionally it has been a formal admission to adulthood ... A person taking the initiation ceremony in traditional rites is called an initiate. In terms of this Journey, it is a modern day INITIATION to be part of the Global Movement Sweeping the planet restoring the Ancient practice of Ecstatic Dance to our modern world.
Ecstatic Dance IS the new yoga!
What is an initiation-ceremony? Its a ritual during which an initiate is admitted to the tribe and given secret knowledge; sometimes contains one or more tests that have to be passed or endured. We will guide and support you through this transition. This is not for the faint hearted- we will be training light Rainbow Warriors, rising early to witness the sun rise, cultivating healthy self practices of somatic movement, yoga, meditation, stillness so you learn to facilitate what is alive and authentic in you!
You will face many of your shadows, deep fears and limiting beliefs so you may move beyond all that has been holding you back and move from Egocentric to Ecocentric consciousness- meaning learning how you can serve with your gifts for the greater good. You will learn how to be the hollow bone to serve your community from a place of humbleness and compassion having endured and passed certain rites of passage yourself will make you stand out from all the others with a deep understanding of the Shamanic Elemental Roots of Ecstatic Dance and how to incorporate that element into the Ecstatic Dance Experience.
"Epic Ecstatic Dance at Ubud, Bali Yoga Barn today brought me to the highest transcendental state of any ecstatic dance in this lifetime and brought new depth and value after preferring other dance forms for decades but enjoying ecstatic more casually.
Malaika guided our hundreds of dancers with her passion, intention, live didgeridoo playing and precision with the music bringing out the best in me and so many others as separations dissolved and synchronistic connections blossomed spontaneously as we shared vigorous movement within inches guided intuitively as if our energy fields were expanded to create smooth buffers so that any contact was gentle if not intended otherwise.
The dance floor was crowded but spacious as we moved more as one single organism, with pleasure rising off the charts in joyful faces everywhere.
After such a powerful journey she glided us in for a smooth landing gracefully into meditation and then gently brought us back into unity in awakedness with her song and guitar and led us in singing together celebrating PachaMama and attunement with Australia's animals and aboriginal people in honor of the day - Australia Day.
This was the highest demonstration of this craft in musical shamanism that I have witnessed in a lifetime as a musician and advanced student of dance for decades."

I recently completed three weeks of music production with ben temple step, and could not have been happier with both the instruction and results. Ben is n inspiring teacher, phenomenal Dj and joy of a person to be around. He met me where I was at in terms of my limited knowledge going in, was excellent at thoroughly answering all my questions, and has the unique ability to teach from his vast wealth of knowledge & experience in a way that is accessible & meaningful. Ben is simply a world-class music producer and Dj instructor and anyone will love working with him.
