Pranada Comtois, a spiritual teacher-coach schooled in the Bhakti tradition, is an exponent of the spiritual evolution of love in our lives, our heart, and our relationships. Her teachings grow from the joint wisdom of living for twenty years as a contemplative-ascetic in an ashram, then twenty years managing two multi-million dollar businesses which exemplified practical spirituality in the world. She is a featured speaker in the film Women of Bhakti. Pranada has always been deeply affected when witnessing the de-humanizing of women. She was the first to speak up for gender harmony in the modern Bhakti tradition. Pranada successfully organized global steps against gender injustice and published a quarterly journal advocating women's rights. Her passion to inspire and empower women continues to propel her into sacred activism. She has been published in Integral Yoga, Rebelle Society, Elephant Journal, The Tattooed Buddha, Journey of the Heart and her own blog Little Ways of Being. Her book Wise-Love: Bhakti and the Search for the Soul of Consciousness is due out in 2017. Connect with her via her website, Facebook or Twitter.
