Ikigai is the Japanese concept that embraces your reason for being. Your raison d’etre. Your choices. While ensuring they’re meaningful and create personal contentment in your present, and future.

Raj is joined in the Maylfy community by a collective of mavens who assist with various relevant workshops, such as learning about healthy nutrition and how it contributes to positive mental health, communications, and PR.

During our events and retreats, individuals and groups transform their ideas into reality, are supported through personal life-changing transactions, build confidence and are guided through difficult challenges.


The support continues through regular check-ins and a nurturing community that will support you in accomplishing your goals.

redefining the community concept

Networks are vital for success and embody “what can we do to help each other?” A goal of mutual success is inherent in a true community; with trust and transparency, we establish safe spaces with respect and kindness as a foundation of interaction.


Our retreats allow people to come together as they move forward along their journey, share their knowledge and interests, and believe that a collective mind is more beneficial to success than working alone.


As founders and leaders, we have found ourselves craving a retreat and support in equal measure. We have built a network that is genuinely aligned with our goals and needs, and now, we are providing the space to cross-collaborate and help everyone succeed.
