Finding Your Centre – How do YOU hear guidance?

My sister and I were chatting about our mom this morning. She did so much good work in the world, was so loving and kind and affected so many people in wonderful ways, we wondered how she "heard guidance", centred herself and knew what her life purpose was. Today, we actually discuss these kinds of things intellectually. We learn "grounding exercises" and meditations to bring us to centre. But of course, my mom was born in 1939. There weren't these kinds of discussions. I'm not sure that these phrases had even been invented yet. What came into my mind [...]

Honouring the Wisdom of PMS

What if we lived in a world where the wisdom of women was honoured? What if there were aspects of life that women were naturally tuned into? Emotional well-being of the tribe. Dissonance within the system. Deep guidance that meant to benefit the whole. What if women were designed in a way that allowed the tribe to be constantly strengthening, and healing? What if this wisdom came once a month? In a similar cycle as the moon? What if she couldn’t ignore it? What if it consumed her unless action was taken? But what if society assumed that this [...]

There Is No Path – A Poem

I would like to share a poem with you that came to me while in Cuba last week. I describe the experience in the video below of hearing this poem while walking in a rainstorm along the beach... asking God the question, "Have I taken a wrong turn somewhere?"...  We often talk about "being on a journey"... which is true. But this leads us to wonder if we might have taken a wrong turn somewhere, especially when life seems to not be what we want it to be in the present moment. I hope you enjoy my video. You [...]

A Graceful Exit – Divorcing in Love

Whenever I told people that we were separating, the overwhelming response was, “OMG what happened? You guys were SUCH A GREAT COUPLE!” The assumption was that there had to be “something” that “broke us up”. But the truth was, after over 20 years, whether we wanted it or not, our paths had diverged. It was the clearest moment when I knew that it was over. I wanted something. He didn't want it. There was a passive power struggle (we were both peace-keepers). And the realization hit me that we actually wanted different things in life now. Our children were nearly [...]

Seeds of Eternal Youth

This morning, I picked up some acorns on my walk this morning - seeds of new life. I am re-reading a series of books that I feel are becoming relevant again called "The Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East" by Baird T. Spalding. Here is what they say about eternal youth: "Behold the leaves and the buds at the tips of the oldest banyan - how young they are - young as the seed from which the giant sprang into life. The life reactions of plant and man being alike, man can certainly profit [...]

Meditation for Compassion

This morning, as I sat in the café that my daughter works in, I listened to my mind as I sat watching the people walk by. Her café is right downtown and so there are all kinds of "characters", drug-addicts and homeless people. As kind and gentle as I think I am, I was amazed to listen to the constant "assessments" of each person that I was thinking. Hmm... Pink pants and bright green shirt. He's not wearing a shirt and he has his hair in a bun on top of his head. Oh, he's in a wheelchair, poor [...]

The Perfect Question to Ask God

So, let's say you have 20 minutes with your favourite spiritual teacher, guru or God. What would you ask them? We often think that we are supposed to ask some great philosophical question that will change the course of our lives. But this isn't true. There are stories about people travelling to the remotest places to find the wise man who can help them find their answers. When they arrive, they ask some grand philosophical question and of course the answer is just as grand, and simple, and not at all the answer that they were looking for. Because [...]

What If We Actually Choose our Struggles?

Life can be hard sometimes.. like really, really hard. Some believe that it's because of bad luck or just a rotten hand dealt to them. Life is just hard and there's nothing we can do about it. But then, some say that our soul chooses our journey before we come in. We choose our parents (even if they are abusive), we choose our circumstances and everything about who we are here. (This is obviously a really tough philosophy to swallow in many situations.) Personally, I don't know how it works. In fact, I don't even think we are capable [...]

Loving Raising My Children

My name is Katrina Bos. I have two children: my son is 21 and my daughter is 19. And since the day they were born, they just took my breath away. I know that children are born every day. It's normal. Maybe I'm weird. Maybe I have weird karma. I don't know. But from the moment they were born, I would look at them and I just couldn't believe they were there. I couldn't believe that they were part of my life. It's hard to explain without sounding really corny. But I just have always really appreciated them. Now [...]

Being the Person Your Kids Can Count On

What is our ideal role as parents? What if it isn't what we've been taught? What if it isn't to be the disciplinarian - keeping them in line. Or the one who "molds them into model citizens". What if our ideal role is to be the safe person in a crazy world, that they can count on when they need it? About 10 years ago, I found myself driving a sixteen-year-old daughter of a close friend of mine home after she had been babysitting my kids. Somehow, we got on the conversation of sex... and somehow I ended up [...]

Being Honest with our Teens

We all want to have great relationships with our kids. But what about our teens? How do we connect with them? One of the biggest problems is that most of the time we are lying to them about the topics that they are struggling with the most - sex, alcohol, peers, drugs, etc. This video is all about how to be honest with them and how to access our own wisdom that we gained through our experiences so that we can help our kids... and so that they feel safe to confide in us so we have a chance of [...]

Parenting as a Mystic

They say that becoming a parent should come with an owner's manual. But what if we have something better? What if we actually have perfect guidance available to us in every moment, and it's completely unique to the child and situation? My children are now grown - my son is 21 and my daughter is 19. But I still remember staring at each of their little faces when they were born and being in complete awe that they had been "given" to me to raise and be part of my life. With this responsibility came the great fear - what [...]

Releasing the Past for Good

As I watched the building being demolished, it reminded me of what it feels like when we need to let go of old "constructs" that are no longer serving us, that we've grown from, or that simply were a part of a past. I share my ponderings as we watch the old being demolished.. making way for something new!

Rumi: Why We Have Hard Times

Sometimes life is so hard. We ask ourselves "Why is this happening?".. We wish things were different, or had gone differently.. And there times where we have real "dark nights of the soul" where everything that we once believed doesn't make any sense and we don't know what to do next.. Nothing makes any sense any more. And when we only focus on the physical world, the world of material things, the world of our roles in society, what we are "supposed" to be doing, how we are supposed to feel and how we think/hope/wish things were going, we can [...]

Wisdom Beyond the Veil

Behind all of these teachings there is something that lies "beyond the veil". For all of the years that I have taught yoga, meditation, spirituality, tantra, etc I have always struggled with talking about the concept of God or spirit into my teachings. Mostly because I didn't want the words to offend anyone. I didn't want anyone to turn away because of it. And this is because I believe that if discussing this topic separates us, then we aren't discussing it correctly. Because we are all the same. We all have flesh and we all are energy as well. It [...]

Your Dreams Never Give Up on You

You know those dreams and hopes that just don't go away? Well, they aren't going anywhere. They will stay with you until… well.. until they happen. :) Sometimes it's easy to lose hope that our lives will ever turn out the way we want. We know what we want. Or we know how we want to feel. But the world of responsibilities and "life" seemed to take over somewhere along the way and we feel like actually creating a life of freedom, happiness and ease is just not going to happen for us. But here's the good news!! Our inner [...]

The Beauty of Mathematics & Tantra

What does Tantra, the philosophy of love, intimacy & Divine Connection, have to do with Mathematics? Everything... And this is why when we discover tantra, our lives start to fit together like a beautiful puzzle... because the building blocks for an amazing edifice is within us... we just have to know how to put them together. Mathematician Turned Tantrika? Long before I was a tantrika, I was once a mathematician. I spent 5 years at the University of Waterloo studying every kind of mathematics from pure math, statistics, calculus, algebra, computer science, etc... eventually receiving a degree in Combinatorics [...]
