Pala and Al

Ever since we began our teaching we’ve been privileged to have received positive attention from a wide variety of media. TV appearances have included national talk shows, such as Canada AM, multi-part documentaries like Sex + Religion, and popular series such as the Discovery Channel’s Sex Files. Magazines like Cosmo, Redbook, and Body and Soul have featured our work. We’ve been interviewed on small local radio stations like Haliburton Ontario’s Canoe FM and on larger venues like Playboy Radio. Newspaper stories have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Globe and Mail, and Le Journal de Quebec among others. We heartily thank all those journalists, interviewers and producers for their time and interest.

We love to spread the word about long-lasting fulfilling relationships, sacred sex practices, and spiritual awakening, so if you’d like to do a story or want more information send us an Email
