This Level 1 training is immediately followed by SSSin Level 2 at the same venue.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
>> This retreat focuses on clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt and fear related to sexuality and authenticity. This is done through multiple pathways of healing: guided visualization, emotional release, shamanic initiations, energy tracking and conscious touch are just a few of the practices used to dive deep into the inner realms. The inner masculine and inner feminine archetypes are explored because when they are fully integrated a door opens to a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete.
>> This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this event, you will feel more open, relaxed and present and be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.
>> This event is about expanding beyond your comfort zone, learning to honor your healthy boundaries, practicing consent and conscious communication. Nudity and intimate touch are an optional part of this training, however, you are always at choice and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. Individuals and couples of any sexual preference are welcome to attend. It is your responsibility as a sovereign being to make the most appropriate decisions for yourself.
>> This is an individual process that happens in a group environment. An ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space.
>> ISTA is a mystery school and 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.
WHO IS THE TRAINING FOR?
>> All ages are welcome, from 18 to 100, couples and individuals, all backgrounds and professions, sexual orientations and paths, gender identities, religions, races and nationalities.
>> Life's core experiences and wounds are universal. They touch and affect individuals of all ages, cultures, backgrounds and race.
>> Some people take this training for their own personal evolution, to gain a deeper self-connection and to enrich their relationships and empower their lives. Others are interested in exploring how it will add to their own professional life whatever that may be. Some are interested in the professions of Sacred Sexual Practitioner or Sexuality Educator.
>> No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend. Those with previous experience are warmly welcomed, as they add to the power of the field.
>> Thousands of people on 5 continents have attended the ISTA trainings over the past 8 years and have been radically changed for the better by uncovering reactive patterns and transforming them into conscious ways of being.
