If you think tantra has something to do with yoga and something to do with sex, but you haven’t dived in beyond that, this is the interview for you.
Today I sat down with Katrina Bos. Katrina is an author, a cancer survivor, a mother, a mathematician and a teacher of tantra. Tantra, as Katrina will explain, is not about yoga or sex or weird kinky things, it’s about connecting with people and finding a true state of intimacy. Our conversation was so interesting because it wasn’t just about sexuality or connection, it was about how we leverage these things to connect to who we are as women, and who we are as go-getters in this world. This interview is jam-packed with actionable information about finding ways to connect to yourself, truly loving yourself and ultimately being able to improve your ability to connect to the world.
