On this week's episode of IMPACT, host Meghan Walker explores the intersection of sexuality and inner wisdom with guests Katrina Bos and Susan Bratton. Together they discuss how embracing your passion and authenticity can lead to greater success in all areas of your life.
Sexuality is an integral part of our lives. It fuels our bodies, businesses, and creativity. Susan Bratton, an expert on how to reclaim our relationship with out own sexuality, emphasizes the importance of slowing down and planning dates for lovemaking and erotic play in order to achieve sexual fulfillment, especially as we age and may experience challenges like vaginal lubrication issues, loss of sensation, and incontinence. Bratton believes that by embracing and prioritizing our sexuality, we can tap into a deeper level of passion, creativity and focus.
Renowned author, Katrina Bos, reminds us that the only thing of value we have is time, and not to waste it. She advises trusting in a greater consciousness and not letting our brains make all the decisions, and encourages finding a spiritual foundation and redefining one's life according to one's own truth. Bos believes that by embracing our inner wisdom and authenticity, we can create a more harmonious and radiant life, not just for ourselves, but for those around us.
With insights from both Bratton and Bos, this week's episode of IMPACT is sure to inspire and empower women to reclaim their sexuality and tap into their inner wisdom in order to live a more fulfilling and authentic life.
Tune in now and get ready to elevate your mind, body, and spirit.

HOW TO CONNECT WITH OUR GUESTS
“We need sexual pleasure to reboot our nervous systems from the stressors of daily life.”
“Our sexuality is our life force. It's our vitality. It's what keeps us wanting and lusting for life, going forward with desire to create.”
“There's 20 kinds of orgasms a male and a female can have.”
“When you get squished, there's something new to learn about yourself and you actually do expand in that struggle.”
“It's all about the merging of the masculine and feminine, the merging of the right and left brain. That's where magic happens.”
“I actually had to learn that my brain wasn't my greatest asset and it definitely couldn't make important life decisions.”
“The great mathematicians historically were philosophers because they were looking out at the world and looking for patterns, and they were literally trying to map God with numbers.”
“What women need is much more slow, delicate touch and penetration, and we don't need to be rammed like a piston, which is what you see on pornography.”
“And the problem is, in our society, if you get stuck in the rat race of just, it's all about the money, it's all about the work, it's all about the house, it's all about the this - by the time you are 60, you've actually lived the same year 60 times.”
My guest today has not been on The Entrepology Podcast since episode 20! Katrina Bos is an author and all-around wise woman.
Katrina is a mathematician by background and she is currently in Guadalupe having sold all of her life possessions as she travels around the world in search of the experience that happens when you surrender to the universe. I absolutely like the juxtaposition between the structure of a background in mathematics and the fluidity and flexibility that can happen when you start to integrate life’s lessons in a strategic way.
My conversation with Katrina is a long one — but there wasn’t one part of the podcast I could do away with — it was wisdom-bomb after wisdom-bomb! We talk about the journey that women go through as the student, the householder, the forest dweller, and the sage — as well as the importance of embracing and honouring each of these pieces in our evolution as wise women. We discuss her online course, the Radiant Woman; the idea of embracing feminine strength, acting out of our feminine wisdom, and listening to your deep wisdom; and so, so much more. I definitely recommend you listen in to this one!

More About Katrina Bos
Katrina Bos is a Canadian speaker, author, and spiritual wellness expert. After getting a Bachelor of Mathematics at the University of Waterloo — where she minored in philosophy and spirituality — Katrina moved on to the small-town life when she married a farmer and raised two children.
When she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of the 1990s, she realized with the help of a guru that it was time for change. Ten years later, cancer-free, Katrina published her first book What if You Could Skip the Cancer? (2009), in which she talks about the changes she had to make that led to her miraculous recovery.
As her awareness and knowledge grew, Katrina developed an interest in Tantra. Her second book, Tantric Intimacy: Discover the Magic of True Connection (2017), redefines love, intimacy, and relationships and brings the world of sacred sexuality into our everyday lives.

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.
