Tell me about yourself
My name is Katrina Bos. I am the founder of Fusion Tantra where I teach tantra through online courses and workshops around the world. My passion is applying the spiritual teachings of tantra to our day-to-day lives in ways that truly transform us – within the lives that we are living.
What inspired the creation of Fusion Tantra?
It was the deep knowing that there is so much more possible in relationships and life. Even within the most functional relationships, we are just scratching the surface of what is possible.
I always had the feeling that deeper intimacy was possible. That “just loving” someone wasn’t enough. I felt like even the best sex that we were having was just the beginning and that all the “How-to” sex books were so focused on the physical bodies and immediate pleasure, that they were missing 90% of what was possible.
When I discovered tantra, I experienced the magic of true, deep intimacy. I realized that “normal sex” is like walking up to the door of a castle and hanging out on the porch. But if we step through the door, everything we ever dreamed was possible is right there. And the amazing thing is that there are no tricks, no fancy breathing or ritual. We just need to unlearn a lot about what we “know” about sex. Our tantric potential is right within us.
What inspires you?
My greatest teachers were the mystics of all traditions. It was always those who sought to have a direct experience of the Divine in their lives – no middle men. This has always been what brings me to centre and helps me to hear my own wisdom.
I am always inspired by the works of Albert Einstein, Viktor Frankl, Gandhi, Osho, the Tao te Ching, Rumi, Thomas Merton, and so many more.
What is tantra to you?
Many people’s lives are completely focused in the physical world. We are consumed by our jobs, relationships, kids, money, politics, sports, fitness, and whatever else entertains us. Then, there are others who ONLY believe that spiritual paths are worthy. They could be religious or meditators. The belief is that all the trappings of the physical world are simply distractions from their spiritual path.
The foundation of tantra is bringing these two worlds together.
It is fully embracing our physical lives with the awareness that we have infinity flowing through our veins. It is walking through our challenges knowing that there are 100 possible solutions and choices in each moment (not just one way or the other). It is knowing that we always have guidance in every moment – at work, in relationships, and also in the bedroom.
What are the lifestyle, relationship and sexual benefits of tantra?
The greatest benefit is that we finally feel like the incredible beings that we are. When we live only in the physical or only in the spiritual, we are living less than half-lives. We always feel like we’re lacking – like we don’t know where we’re going. Like there is always something better.
But when we truly bring these two aspects of ourselves together, we walk around feeling completely radiant. We are strong, confident, centred, passionate, excited, peaceful and effortlessly loving to everyone.
In relationships, we learn how to truly love and connect with each other. We learn how to connect with our children in trusting, honest ways so that those relationships are deep and fulfilling for everyone. We connect with our lovers in a way that you are always building and exploring together. Many relationships are always “fighting fires”. They are struggling with issues that all come from a lack of heart-felt connection. And so, they can’t openly explore together because they have walls up to each other… and so there is a ceiling on how much happiness is possible.
In a tantric relationship, there is no ceiling. The exploration possibilities are truly infinite.
Sexually, just imagine what happens when you bring infinity into the bedroom! Now, you have two infinite beings with these incredibly sensitive bodies. You have no goals or preconceived ideas about where your adventure is going to go. You simply connect effortlessly and let the bodies make love. It is a bliss that cannot be felt any other way. It heals our broken parts. It creates a bond between you that is beyond this world. It is everything that we imagine love and intimacy is meant to be… and so much more that we just don’t have the words to describe.
What does it feel like to experience tantra?
In our everyday life, we feel calm, peaceful inside while fully engaged with whatever we are doing.
Mentally, we are focused and clear.
Emotionally, we are free to feel everything that comes. If we are angry, we dive in. If we are sad, then we fully feel it. If we are grieving, then we grieve until the end. If we are happy, then we are incredibly happy!
Sexually, we feel warm, loved, and completely fulfilled in ways beyond words. (When I was writing my book “Tantric Intimacy”, I was constantly running out of words for ineffable/indescribable, etc).
What are your favourite tantra tips?
The tantric experience always starts with love because love is how humans connect to each other. The foundation of this love is Agape – the Ancient Greek word for “God’s love”. This is the connection that we have with all people. It is understanding that we are all bumbling along, doing the best we can. It is total kindness and respect.
This lack of Agape is the foundation for all of our suffering in relationships (and within ourselves). It is the first thing that I teach my students – to create a sadhana (daily spiritual practice) of being 100% kind to their loved ones every day. This is a step that CANNOT be skipped, even if it is hard. Because if we skip this step, the magic of tantra will always elude us because there will be walls up in all of our relationships. The walls must be allowed to come down, if true connection is going to happen.
This might not sound like the sexy answer… but tantra is a personal, spiritual journey of healing. It is the journey to becoming 100% kind that will heal your life. And when that healed, radiant person makes love, everyone present will feel the difference.
What types of people would benefit from tantra? How can it be used for sexual improvement?
Although many people think that they need a partner to study tantra, this isn’t true at all. In fact, it is important to study tantra as an individual either first, or while studying with a partner. Tantra transforms us personally into who we truly are. It can be very confusing to have this transformation when we are focused on fixing a relationship.
For couples, tantra is best for those who have a strong foundation and both people are wanting to explore equally.
For couples where one person is interested, but the other isn’t, they are best to study as an individual and shift within themselves… and those around them will shift in their own ways.
Tantra is for all orientations and genders. It is the magic that happens when two humans truly connect and merge. This can happen fully clothed or in full intercourse. Our sexual orientation is irrelevant.
Tantra is wonderful for young people to create an amazing foundation of love and connection so that they can find incredible satisfaction and love in their adult lives.
Tantra is great for all adults who feel the call that there is something more… That it’s time to learn something new.
How can people become involved in tantra?
There are many schools of tantra out there to try. The key is finding out if what they are teaching resonates with you. Some schools are very focused on the spiritual side (white tantra). Others are very focused on the sexual side working with genital healing, relationships, freedom, etc (red tantra).
I offer a great online course “Foundations for Tantric Intimacy” which starts at the beginning of your tantric journey creating a new foundation either within your current relationships or for future ones. There are two versions – one for individuals and one for couples.
My recent book “Tantric Intimacy: Discover the Magic of True Connection”, recently released in August, takes you deeper into redefining love and connection, the blending of spirit and matter, the union of masculine and feminine, sexual intimacy, and living a tantric life.
How can people integrate tantra into their personal lifestyle?
This is why I love offering my online courses. It is taking the philosophies into our day-to-day lives that truly transforms us. It is doing the exercises after a long day at work where we feel the most impact and change within. When you learn within your life, everything naturally becomes integrated into how you talk, eat, go to work, dress, argue, and make love.
The integration happens with each small change. Every time we fully embrace one of the teachings, we start to experience it in little ways in our lives. There is a ripple effect within all aspects of our relationships. Soon, we can’t remember our life being any different.
The integration is gradual but permanent – and blissful.
What classes and workshops do you offer?
My online classes are my number one offering. I also offer workshops and retreats all over the world. I am based in Canada, so many of my retreats happen near Toronto. But when people have a group who would love to learn, I love travelling around the world to meet, teach and share these wonderful teachings.
The best place to get started is to sign up for Fusion Tantra’s email list at www.fusiontantra.com. You’ll get some introductory videos and information about upcoming trainings and retreats. Plus I love to write articles, create new courses, and make videos, so you’ll be the first to know!
