    Be the One with Dr. Tony Ortega and Colin Bedell of Queer Cosmos

    In this episode, Dr. Tony chats with Colin Bedell of Queer Cosmos. While the love affair between the two is quite evident, the conversation does shift to astrology and the spiritual community. Colin confronts the idea of "certainty ads validity which is then sold and peddled to the masses" because scarcity sells. Colin is not a believer of deficit based astrology and discusses other issues that really don't work for the spiritual community, including working on your shadow self.

    Be the One with Dr. Tony Ortega and Mattarot

    Be the One with Dr. Tony Ortega and Mattarot

    In this episode, Dr. Tony is joined by yet another Canadian male, Matt from Mattarot. The conversation got real very quick. Since Matt is a creative therapist, he discusses the notion of how psychology and spirituality aren't that far removed from each other. Being in the spiritual/healing arts is definitely a calling and not something "don't erase your humanity with spirituality." And since Matt is a tantra healer, the conversation turned to using sex to manifest your goals.
