about Mallika

For over 20 years, I have pursued greater knowledge, more freedom and deeper understanding of myself. This has come through a variety of educational, personal and collective experiences, including: therapy, expressive and visual arts, yoga philosophy and practice, family and motherhood. I am here and dedicated to my own and the collective transformation.

 

I have engaged in transformative processes as the designated leader (private practice therapist, group facilitator, stage performer and director, parent educator, mother) and also as the one being guided (therapy client, daughter, group member, student). I have found immense value in cultivating curiosity toward both my internal experience and that of the external or collective. 

I highly value all relationships in my life, including my husband, my daughters, friends, family and also my relationships with the earth, plants, and the Divine. I find the most transformative experiences of my life are when I feel witnessed, connected and curious about what is happening. My dharma, my deepest desire is to create these types of transformative spaces for myself and others.
