Keeping Up

IKYTA Liaison Officer Update My name is Manav Simran Kaur and I recently joined the KYTA committee as Liaison Officer.

Or perhaps you equate self-love with egotism? Narcissism? Self-adoration? And yet…the foundations of the spiritual life begin, and end, with loving the Self. What do we mean exactly...

Your life is your kingdom. Picture it. It is your domain. Your kingdom encompasses every facet of your life: your body, your thought-life, your loved ones, your work, your dreams and hopes, your home…at the centre of this kingdom is you. Often we feel that our lives are out of control and that we are buffeted by the winds and storms of...

January is a wonderful month for pondering: the persisting early darknesses that fall invite us to long baths, sofa time, perhaps early to bed with a good book. Time for reflecting on the new year ahead of us and on the energy of the numerology of the month of January- the number One. The number One represents a seed energy;...
