Maya "Papaya" Yonika is a world-renowned Tantric practitioner and author of "No Mud, No Lotus: A Memoir of Sex, Betrayal, and Spiritual Awakening."  

At the age of 33, after 12 years of life-threatening alcohol and drug addictions, Maya began a radical journey into self-healing.  She began by diving deeply into Tantra and “Sacred Sex of the West” which landed her in the controversial documentary film "Sex Magic, Manifesting Maya.”  Overwhelmed with the limiting distortions of western Tantra, she ultimately denounced the work and moved to Ubud, Bali where she took refuge into the Sikh tradition of White Tantra/Kundalini yoga and wrote her first book “No Mud, No Lotus”.

In October 2013, Maya traveled to Cape Town, South Africa where she came into contact with a teacher who helped her to realize her path as the Dakini.  She continues her studies today in Johannesburg where she currently resides.
