Hi, I’M
Mallika

I am a poet, a Philosophy scholar from the University of Buenos Aires specialized in Tantric philosophy, a composer of meditative music, a classical pianist and Music Educator from the National Conservatory of Buenos Aires, a Sound Therapist, as well as a certified Meditation facilitator. As a researcher, I have focused my research on the use of Sound, Dance and Trance in the context of the Matrifocal cultures of the Paleolithic. As a musician and dancer, I have performed traditional music and dances at a wide variety of festivals for 20 years and now I play more than 45 instruments. I am proud to serve as the Director of Operations for 9Ways Europe, led by Mitch Nur, PhD, one of the worldwide authorities in Sound Work.

My Story

I was born in San Telmo, a passionate neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina, where Tango was born and Muses love to hang out. Maybe that’s why I have always been enchanted by the invisible things: stories, melodies, cosmogonies, rituals, silence.

 

My stepmother taught me to play piano at 4 years old. Later, I graduated in Classical Piano and Music Education in the National Conservatory of Buenos Aires and today I play more than 40 instruments and have become a certified sound worker. The latest instrument I’ve fallen in love with is the Japanese Koto.

 

When my parents asked me, “What would you like to be when you grow older?”, I answered: “A philosopher and a writer”. They were displeased for just one day and then lovingly accepted my decision (I will always be grateful for that).

 

As a Philosophy scholar, dazzled by the great master Abhinava Gupta, I research in ancient Tantric Philosophy, in particular Kashmir Shaivism, which I consider the most refined Darśana of Eastern Philosophy. My enthusiasm for meditation went beyond the theoretical level, and I later became a Tantra Practitioner and a facilitator of OSHO Active Meditations.

 

After a very long road trip around the world, I realised I had not dedicated enough attention to the cultural treasures of my own land, and I needed this root knowledge to be grounded in a particular place on this Earth. I went back to Argentina and studied for another career connected with Cultural Heritage, and embarked on a 15-year course of research about the native cultures of my land and South America, learning from shamans and amazing native artists.

 

Literature is another ocean in which I have always liked to dive. I am a poet and a writer of children’s books, some of which have been translated into more than 12 languages. I had the joy to be in contact with numerous young readers from different countries in book presentations and literature festivals, and one day I realised that children are my greatest masters.

 

In the year 2023, I had the honor of being appointed as a Faculty member of 9Ways Academia and the Director of Operations for 9Ways Europe by my esteemed teacher and mentor, Dr. Mitch Nur, PhD. Dr. Nur is widely recognized as one of North America’s oldest and leading sound teachers and sound healers. His profound wisdom, unwavering pursuit of truth, and compassionate presence serve as a perpetual source of inspiration and guidance in my endeavors as a sound worker.

 

Today, I am still fascinated by the invisible thread between sounds, words and silence, how they melt into the other, how they enter into dialogue together, how they all seem to be just the same mysterious, glorious source of existence.
