SSSEx – ISTA Training Level 1
Spiritual…Sexual….Shamanic …each of these three areas alone carry enormous charge for shadow and misuse of power as well as potential for liberation, freedom, love and joy. Together, integrated, we begin to see what it means to be awake, empowered, in community and in service as love in the world.
This week provides the essential teachings and experiences that restore to us the type of education we should have had around our sexuality, our emotions and our relationships with the masculine and feminine. This provides for the experience of being truly alive and integrated.
This training is aimed at people who are dedicated to evolving consciousness, so together as a group and as humanity as a whole, we play our part on earth. Central to this is full presence, personal & transpersonal awareness, personal empowerment, emotional intelligence, sexual health & wholeness, and a lifestyle which honors the interconnectedness of all things. Embracing one’s shadow is one of the cornerstones & methods of personal transformation, liberation & expanded potential.
This course is open to all who are called. No prior knowledge of shamanism, tantra or sacred sexuality is necessary and people with previous experience are welcomed. All genders of any sexual orientation, and relationship style are welcome! Those with previous experience are warmly welcomed, as they add to the power of the field. This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space.
ISTA approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process.
Nudity and intimate touch are optional parts of this training. The cornerstone of this work is about consent, developing healthy boundaries and communication. You are always at choice (free to choose) and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. If it is your truth, it is possible to complete the entire training experience without touching another person or taking your clothes off.
ISTA Level 1 is a safe container that will allow, invite and offer you:
• The opportunity to stop, feel and take a look at yourself in a whole new way, whatever your life situation may be. This is an opportunity to wake up to your life.
• An invitation to take risks, meet and explore your edges. • Essential life skills we all should have received as teenagers.
• A space for you to see, show and live from the ‘you’ that lies beneath the mask. You will see more clearly where you are operating from ego and belief patterns of others and society.
• A view into where your inner masculine and inner feminine may be immature, unhealthy or at war. It will guide you to bring them back towards union, love and integration.
• An invitation to reconnect to and learn to love your emotional body and heart power…as well as your physical self.
• A vision of your glorious energy being, with skills that allow you to dance with this energy body alongside your physical body.
• The ability to seek wisdom from your body and heart, instead of your mind.
• Powerful opportunities for healing core wounds.
• A reminder of how to love yourself, to feel the healing power of pleasure, with ways to expand your sexuality and orgasmic potential.
• The deep understanding that sexuality and spirituality are one.
• Opportunities for deep healing around lost love, sexuality, grief, self love and mother and father wounds.
• A spotlight on how culture, religion and society has kept us from expressing who we really are.
• Powerful rituals that bring deep healing and power reclamation.
• An opportunity to consider what your life might look like, if it was not controlled by society’s expectations, ego, family, fear, shame and guilt.
• The knowledge of what it truly is to be a sovereign being.
This training is aimed at men and women who are dedicated to the ongoing practice of evolving consciousness and deeper embodiment and who support others on this path. Central to this are presence, awareness, personal empowerment, emotional intelligence, sexual wholeness, and a lifestyle which honours the interconnectedness of all things.
