I have often written on the danger of falling for extremes; in our desperation to run away from one issue we tend to readily embrace any solution no matter how drastic. In the wide spectrum of time, it wasn’t too long ago when patients with mental illness and disorders were treated like the pariah of…… Continue reading Healing with Intelligence and Compassion
What I am writing here is based on my piece “Reflections: Pornography…the Silent Killer” and on the teachings of Osho; teachings which have inspired the style and techniques used by mentors and sexual educators such as Diana Richardson and Barry Long among others. Unlike pornography would like us to believe, mindless thrusting does nothing for…… Continue reading Tantra: Educating Ourselves on Sexual Penetration
Today I reflected about a gentleman I have been working with and what he said to me after our last counselling session. Although him and I had seen each other over the years at a few events organized by acquaintances, we almost never had the opportunity to have a proper conversation–partly because I don’t often…… Continue reading Reflections: Pornography…The Silent Killer
Since we are children, through movies and story books, we are often indoctrinated to think happiness is the main goal; one we are to chase. We are not taught that it is our birthright; instead we are left with this uneasy feeling that we have to earn it. Neither are we taught happiness is an…… Continue reading Happiness or Passion?
When it comes to spirituality, faith or occultism, it seems the same rule applies: in order to know God, divinity or transcendental reality, it is necessary to put aside the mind and live the experience; only through a special state of consciousness it is possible to connect with it.

So many times we hear the saying “I am awake” as a way to refer to us as more illuminated, saintly, holy…but do we really know what it is that we are saying? or have we; like many so called masters; fallen pray to the spiritual ego and the false idea of dissolving the ego….…… Continue reading Tantra: Uniqueness as a Path to Awakening
The following is based on Sacred Shamanic teachings, which I thought would be good to share, as more often than not, we find ourselves questioning our path. At the end of the day, we don’t know anything for sure, this real uncertainty may be the reason why we often seek refuge in religion, spirituality, magick,…… Continue reading The Warrior Spirit
Not too long ago there was yet another shooting in the US at an elementary school; that particular horrendous event gave rise to the debate about gun control. I was vocal about my dislike for the low regulations for gun control (not everywhere of course, there are countries with far better regulations than others), this…… Continue reading Balance: Can The Law Go Too Far?
Upon my return from the Island, I felt lighter and happier…one would say recharged. My days there not only allowed me to reconnect and align my body but also my mind. I went there with no other expectations than to de-stress a bit, and came back with a clearer mindset. Being in nature, surrounded by…… Continue reading Breaking Toxic Family Ties Without Remorse.
Recently I was reading a book given to me by one of my loved ones; the book was about the beauty of empaths, but it also expressed how an empath can get drained pretty quickly if certain boundaries are not set. You can imagine how hard it is for an empath to set boundaries; an…… Continue reading Empaths: Simple Ways to Care for Yourself
