Healing with Intelligence and Compassion

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

Tantra: Educating Ourselves on Sexual Penetration

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

Reflections: Pornography…The Silent Killer

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

Intellect or Blind Faith?: Understanding Illumination

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. The above is excellent advise, except…… Continue reading Intellect or Blind Faith?: Understanding Illumination

The Warrior Spirit

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

Balance: Can The Law Go Too Far?

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?

Breaking Toxic Family Ties Without Remorse.

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.

Hate is Not an Option

This article is based on a discussion I had with a group last Friday, as a result of current world events. I won’t go into the details of that discussion, for I want this article to be a little bit lighter and to focus on the beauty of self without falling pray to false positivism.…… Continue reading Hate is Not an Option

Feline Philosophy

Adorable portrait of a domestic cat. Black and white photography. Multi-colored long-haired fluffy cat. The cat looks away

Today I want to write about Philosophy from a lighter yet quite beneficial perspective. I am an animal lover and quite often feel despite the fact they are not human, they often can teach us the most about humanity. I am not going to romanticize every aspect of nature and the animal kingdom, for that…… Continue reading Feline Philosophy

Philosophy And Modern Life: Prometheus

In our current era; an era of rediscovery; we are learning to understand the real meaning of metaphors and the abstract. In our ignorance or false sense of loyalty to blinding paradigms, we for centuries took concepts which were meant to be allegories and interpretations as literal, and took literal concepts as abstract or allegories.…… Continue reading Philosophy And Modern Life: Prometheus
