All I can say is life-changing!
I feel connected with pieces of myself that I couldn’t have identified as absent. I have realized my purpose and feel prepared to move forward into the world. Deep gratitude Malaika; everything you do is with purpose and intent, so beautifully executed in the moment and so authentic.
You are such a clear channel for transformation.

"Malaika teaches a wonderful dance of the Five Elements, which helps you loosen up, ground and connect to others in a beautiful flow. It starts slow and works up from the earth into a fiery frenzy, letting you release blocked emotions and tensions. She will often use five-element props – encouraging you to touch the earth (if done outdoors) and dance around candles or real bonfires… Such fun! Afterwards, I felt energized and cleansed as if I had literally let it all go! For many of the guest here for yoga the dance was the highlight of their week and we have now included it in our program."
She has the power to get the connection with you. So deep on all the layers, mental and physical, she knows everything about the term and system; there are just so many. Ancient knowledge, so much wisdom, and she has all the answers, and with your help, this journey was so easy. So beautiful. So powerful, so transformative, such an enchanting channel. This is mastery in its gut, and I don't know any other person in my life who has so much wisdom inside. So I'm so grateful to have the ability, to be close with you, for these three months. And to go on the past, have your support and hand on this beautiful path to myself, to my feminine.
Thank you, Malaika. Thank you. Love you, love you. God bless you."
"Rare is it to find a movement innovator and guide that so eloquently and powerfully resources from a wealth of personal experience of time spent amongst peoples for whom dance is still a primary ceremonial and soulfully initiatory practice. Malaika’s skill lies in interpreting – through her body, her voice and her very fresh, yet timeless sequencing, the meeting place of the seen and unseen. Because of this, her offerings are not only captivating and entertaining, they are leading the human movement in a modern world toward healing and harmony in a way that is lighthearted, creative and oh-so-much FUN."

Those in Delhi, can give a try. Events like this, bring out ones natural self..clean of any nurturing, or societal biases that have undergone deep into our psyche, over the years. The guru, Malaika, is a living pagan goddess. Who knows, at the end of the weekend, you may find yourself onto a entire new path in life!
I began Wild Woman Awakening last week while I was house-sitting in our friend's gorgeous home in Cairns. In true feminine form, I granted myself spaciousness and relieved the pressure of completing the course during my stay there, and I took myself on another solo retreat at Kerwarra Beach this weekend to complete the course and to begin the vision for what’s to come for my offerings in this world.
My body, mind, womb, and soul are pulsing with energy and I feel great appreciation for you, your work, and for myself for taking this next step in my evolution as an empowered, loving, wild woman on this planet who leads other women to connect deeper to themselves and each other. I feel incredibly blessed to have met you at two different Sacred Circularizes many moons ago. I knew then that there was more I desired to learn from you. I feel now there’s even more to come, and I look forward to our paths crossing again one day.
Spirit led me to Cairns over a year and a half ago, where I met my partner (& best mate) only 10 days after my arrival on what I thought was a holiday. I have invited him to join me here tomorrow for my last night, so we can integrate our energies after I’ve had this experience and begin our dance together again.
After I came back from my first solo WWA retreat, it was cool to see how my language has already begun to change in my communication with him and in the hoop dance classes I taught this week. I’m proud to say I have been speaking to my needs regularly, am I checking in and trusting my womb, and so much more.
With love, gratitude, and blessings to you

Incredibly, I experienced –ANOTHER– profound healing in my right ankle last night at 5 Elements dance with the amazing Malaika MaVeena Darville. I was running as fast as I used to as a child around and around the center altar. Just as I recognized the presence of my grandfather–whom I had called into the circle along with my father and all fathers and grandfathers– running with me, lifting my feet (he too had been a great sprinter in his youth), I felt the outer edge of my right foot (which had been habitually pulling away from the floor, despite all kinds of stretching and healing) shift out and solidly down, hitting the earth with the rest of my foot for the first time in over a year. Salaam, Waha, Amen, Aho! Sacred Circularities, y’all
It was such a profound workshop with the Shiva Shakti Cacao Ceremony beautifully facilitated and held by soul-sister Malaika MaVeena Darville. Curiously, we ended up being a group of women but this was perfect as we dove deeply into our journeys, dance, celebration, and womb healing. I feel filled up and nourished on so many levels. Gratitude and blessings.
Malaika and her 5Elements Dance Activation™ was a ceremonial experience of a lifetime. She weaves the ancient rituals of the ancestors in a modern-day format. This opened the doorway for people of all cultures to receive a huge gift of connection to the Earth and her medicine. I felt free to express myself through dance with so much love and connection to my body, the Earth, and everyone I was dancing with. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves to express themselves through sacred dance as Malaika is a master at holding Sacred Space.
