In this episode, I had the pleasure of talking to Makatu Roni about his journey from growing up in Israel to moving and building his company in the USA. How he ended up leaving his businesses in the US behind, started producing dance events in Israel, became part of the International School of Temple Arts (ISTA), and now produces festivals, and recently started a tech-startup focused on conscious-community..
We talk about topics like what happens when one’s gifts are recognized by life, how to combine forces with others instead of being in competition (he calls it "being polyamorous in business"), “dragoning ideas” (which means manifesting them), how he interfaces with the world outside the conscious community when doing business, and the need to let things die.
Besides producing many conscious, dance, and sacred sexuality events, Makatu is currently the CEO of Lua, an app that brings together members of conscious communities. He started Ecstatic Dance in Israel, holds ceremonies for groups, produces the largest tantra online festival with more than 1600 participants. He is also an apprentice faculty at the International School of Temple Arts and holds initiation temples for young adults.
This episode was recorded while Makatu was traveling New Zealand's South Island with his van - giving thanks to the 4g-phone connection gods, we had a stable connection almost all the way through that allowed us to record this conversation.
