It's Time to Re-member

Your Wildness and Return

to True Wellness

Are you ready to reclaim your capacity for a grounded, connected life?

Perhaps this is your experience:

You want to feel supported in connecting to your resources through embodiment, authentic relationships  and re-membering your ancestral wisdom. 

You know the container for this learning needs to be emotionally safe and make room for the light and the shadow of life. 

You are ready to feel abundant support, nourished balance and unwavering self-love as a woman and a mom.

You want to free the past, present and future generations from old wounds.

Living a grounded and connected life might look like:

  • Cultivated, deep knowledge of your story and the archetypes within it

  • Greater confidence to trust your intuition

  • Trust in your child's healthy emotional development

  • Clarity about the meaningful work you are here to do in this world

  • Understanding what it means to honor your specific ancestors

  • Ancestral support and unconditional love

  • The ability to spend more time in nature

welcome to Myth, Animism and 

my ancestral stories

A 7-week process to rebuild connection to self, others and the Divine.

You are ready to make space

for the healing you've been longing for

What You Will Deepen Into

  • Explore and connect with the archetypes that move you

  • Define and expand your relationship to what is sacred/divine

Who is Mallika?

Mallika is a vulnerable and honest healer, LMFT and facilitator of integrated wholeness. She works with women to re-member their connection to self, others and the Divine, incorporating ancestral wisdom for the wellbeing of themselves, their community and the planet. 

I do this work because I also want to know I am not alone; just like you, I want to be known and connected to other witchy moms who are re-weaving a more connected, integrated and loving world.  

This is for you, witchy mama, if:

  • You feel a pervasive sense of not-enoughness

  • You have high expectations of your closest friends and feel an unmet longing to be seen or heard 

  • Perfectionism is keeping you from your creativity

  • You've been interested in learning more about connecting to the other-than-human people 

  • You feel overwhelmed by being the only one responsible for your children's emotional development and wellness

  • You value the healing and growth work you've done in psychotherapy, or something similar, and are ready to integrate a whole perspective of wellness

This is not for you if:

  • You aren't really interested in shadow work

  • You hope to elicit revenge or punishment for past wrongdoings 

  • You don't sense the life energy in non-human beings in the world

  • You are not interested in getting good at being with difference and being in authentic relationship with others

  • You have some really intense family wounding and want to interface directly with the wounded, suffering ancestors

  • You're not a mom (of human children)

  • You want to circumvent your feelings, and just fix the problem.

Why myth

Myth, in modern times, has come to mean

"an unfounded or false notion."

There is a way of working with myth that holds both the expanded truth that's present and the possible historical root of the tale.

Through exploring the archetypes present in the stories that have been told for thousands of years, we can connect to the multiplicity of the human experience through myth. 

We can come to know the many parts that are alive within and around us.

What is animism?

Animism comes from the latin word "Anima" which means: breath, spirit or life. 

Animism is a point of view that aligns with the belief that animals, places and objects possess a distinct spiritual essence. Everything from water, rocks and trees to couches, concepts like envy and even words are seen as animated and alive. 

This perspective has been a staple in many indigenous ways of life, many of which are still practiced today, including the Japanese Shinto way of life.
