DRUK YUL ~ The Land of the Fire Dragon
Let me introduce you to a country that has captured my heart a long time ago ~ lifetimes ago. Bhutan is nestled in the Himalayas between the two giants China and India is also often described as a jewel in the Himalayas. It is roughly the size of Switzerland, with altitudes starting from 150m and rising to its tallest mountain over 7000m. It is home of the snow leopard and the musk deer as well as many other species and even tigers have been seen at 4000 meters.
While most countries assess their wealth by measuring the Gross National Product (the total value of all financial goods and services), Bhutan instead counts its wealth by measuring Gross National Happiness. GNH means the creation of an enlightened society in which the happiness and well-being of all people and sentient being is the ultimate purpose of governance, including a sustainable environment. Bhutan’s social and cultural fabrics are woven closely with the spiritual traditions. The majority of the population are either Buddhist or Hindu. Animist tradition has subtly influenced these two faiths. Spiritual activities are a day to day living culture in this kingdom. This expression dots the kingdom in form of monument and prayer flags.
The small country of Bhutan is undergoing a rapid transformation. Since 2008, the world’s youngest democracy continues to be guided by the vision of Gross National Happiness. Founded by the wise lineage of kings and spiritual compassionate leaders, honoring all living forms.

What is Embodied Spirituality?
Embodied Spirituality creates, sustains and energizes choices that awaken and birth the ‘Eco Soul.’ Such choices set a course that spirals into a profound relationship between our bodies and our spirit’s life intention. In living Embodied Spirituality, one gains an even greater altitude of perception and honoring of the body as an instrument of the divine.It is this knowingness that guides us when we quiet ourselves and allow the dust of our mind’s chatter to settle, so that a higher vision can be revealed.The embodiment of our spirituality is a homecoming to deepen our sense of being and activate the unique signature of our inner wisdom of body and mind.Consider your body a living temple of the divine, supported by a Mother Earth who holds all the sustainable resources for life itself. Now imagine, as you read these words, that your very own body is the most precious gift you are given and the home of your gentle being, your soul, your spirit. Your body’s ability to regenerate itself daily is a result of its aliveness. Aliveness is the very essence of embodying spirituality.
The bridge to true life force flows through our sensual and sexual energies, but these energies are often overlooked and misunderstood. Our sexual energies unite and link us, through the body, to the soul and spirit. Honoring sexual energy strengthens the body in multitudes of ways we can hardly imagine. Sensual and sexual energy coursing through us, unimpeded by fears or social conditions, can cleanse emotions and free our life expressions to ever greater heights and clarity. Sexual energy is a bridge to spirituality and if openly explored is a way to greater self-actualization.
Spirituality means developing ourselves!
Embodying spirit consciously generates vitality, expanding the connection to our larger earth body. This connection awakens us to choices that sustain life force. This is where the ‘Eco Soul’ is activated, releasing inspired knowing and ageless information.
Sustainability is Spiritual
An Expression of Ageless Spirit and Awakened Body
As we awaken the ‘Eco-Soul’, a phrase we coined many years ago, caring for our earth is no longer a ‘should”, but part of a love affair with life. Each act of an ‘Eco-Soul’ serves humanity and the environment through awareness of the requirement for sustainability, responsibility, and care for the sacredness of all life.
” Kutira and Raphael give root to the magic of love and music in daily life.
It is a blessing to have such ecstatic friends who know how to ride between the worlds”
- Margot Anand, Author of The Art of Everyday Ecstacy
