🌈 About

Writing is communication. You are here to read and you will have your thoughts about it. The atmosphere here is led by feminine pulse. I am here to write. It is the thing I like. I have an eclectic background of sociology, nursing, shamanism, ayurveda, yoga, religion, music, film. I am interested in the human condition. I live with a brain injury and mostly my mind abides in open awareness. Brain injury and PTSD are shaping who I am. My writing as I see it weaves a story. People interpret what I write in unique ways.

I am writing since university (late 90s). I was published in a couple real magazines (you know those with paper pages) Calgary’s Rising Women and I co-wrote a yoga and meditation book under pen name Tara Shakti (that was also a real book with paper pages). I wrote an e-book on food and diet, and was published in few online publications; Elephant Journal, She Knows magazine, Your Tango.

I write because I have an emerging voice in the collective of rising women.

There are appearances in this world. Minds thinking affect ways in which appearances show up. All our surrounding influences emotions. Not all emotions are good daily, yet all emotions serve in changing streams of thoughts. Writing exists to inform, to evoke emotions, not everything written is true, you will always have thoughts about writing. Your cognitive abilities influence your interpretation of writing. Writers have views on writing and we all agree we use words. Words are to be used.

Not all things I write are lovey-dovey or wise. People were shaken by reading things here. If you have a concern use the contact page to communicate with me, for quickest answer use the provided voicemail and text number.

I love nature and sounds of birds, warm days and nights. I like sharing time with people who are into improving the world and making it a good place to live.

My mother told me to make money online, I have my website and SoundCloud. I am not a fan of social media.

This started out in 2008 as Karuna Vine, it changed to The Sweet Life in 2014, it changed again to Shakti Tara in 2016, it changed again in 2016 to what it is today, my mind is changing and my mother is changing.
