ISTA Level 1 – SSSEX – Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience

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 powerful 7 day training is a training for life and love and is for EVERYONE, practitioners, would-be practitioners and anyone who desires to take their personal empowerment to another level and to deepen their abilities of Self Mastery. Activities include hands on practice and coaching around the use and implementation of 7 incredible tools including emotional release, aspecting, voice dialogue, neurological reprogramming, exploration into ethics and boundaries and introduction of rituals of initiation.

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. Acknowledging and embracing one’s shadow (or un-integrated psychological material) is the cornerstone of this work.

Some people take this training for their own personal enrichment while others are interested in the profession of Sacred Sexual Practitioner or Educator. Join with other motivated individuals from a diverse background of experiences, including computer techs, massage therapists, counsellors, artists, healers, entrepreneurs, and students, to create an intensely-satisfying learning journey, that will significantly impact your personal life and professional style.

This revolutionary Life empowerment course supports us to masterfully direct our primal and sexual nature so that we more deeply embody a fully integrated, respectful and vibrant relationship with ourselves and others. Attendees include those from the various spiritual/sexual paths of celibacy, monogamy, and polyamory. The entire course is designed to support all individuals to find, feel, claim, and express their highest Life expression. If it is your truth, It is possible to complete the entire training/experience without touching another person. How do we fully take back our power as well as support others to live free? The ISTA facilitators are looking forward to meeting you in Love, Power, and Freedom.

“Guatemala has been my chosen home for the past 10 years because it offers an incredible beauty, richness of culture and a space to explore life outside of much of the Western paradigm’s focus on competition and consumerism. My love affair with Lake Atitlan continues to be one of the richest journeys of my life as does the fulfilment I experience supporting the flowering of ISTA’s phenomenal trainings in Latin America.

“Whether your sexuality has been a source of joy or of shame, of pleasure or of pain, it holds powerful keys to life mastery. It is the energetic thread connecting you to the same power that created everything you bear witness to. When we are ready to explore the mystery of our sexual life-force energy, we stand at the doorway to manifesting our deepest dreams; to a life of liberated living AS loving power.” Araminta
