ISTA Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience

SSSEx Level 1

8-day Experience: 8th - 15th August 2021

 : : ∞ : : WHAT DOES THE SSSex INTENSIVE INVOLVE?   : : ∞ : :

_____________________________________________________

This retreat focuses on clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt and fear related to sexuality and authenticity. The deeper transformation comes from reconnecting to your personal power, exploring sexuality is a fast path to encountering our own power challenges and gifts.

This is done through multiple pathways using the best of the ancient temple arts including Tantra, Taoist and Shamanic traditions and adding to this more modern day NLP,  bioenergetics, guided visualization, emotional release, Kundalini activation, energy tracking, conscious touch and consent skills. The list above are just a few of the practices we use 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.

 

A note on Masculine & Feminine

Please don’t perceive that our use of the terms masculine and feminine is an indicator that ISTA operates from place of duality and gender separation. We do not, far from it we realise that we are all masculine and feminine regardless of our physical form. We use this terminology as it is an effective model for understanding the different energies or qualities that each if us is made up of. They do not translate to men and women or male and female.

 

Unique to ISTA

Three skilled Temple Arts Faculty all international teachers in their own right will share, inspire, guide and support you to bring light to the shadows where our power awaits to be reclaimed. You will receive information, guidance and lots of experiential practice around self love, boundaries and consent, emotional release, voice dialogue, neurological reprogramming, Orgasmic Yoga, learning to work with shamanic energy, owning one’s desires and the ability to manifest, accessing and speaking from your contra-sexual self (i.e gender opposite), conscious communication, Transformational Shamanic Breathwork, ancient temple arts rituals of healing/initiation and a powerful sexual clearing and activation processes.

 

Supportive Group Process

This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on safety, trust, unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this event, you will feel more in touch with your body, feel a sense of greater aliveness and presence, be more aware of your patterns and have some skills as to how to change them, have more awareness of your emotions and how to hold them, lighter and perhaps more relaxed. You will be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.





 
 : : ∞ : : NOTE FROM YOUR LEAD ELAINE YOUNG  : : ∞ : :

_____________________________________________________

‘My personal journey is the reason I facilitate these trainings, for me they are by far the most effective weeklong personal transformational experience I have encountered. I want to share the possibility of living from a place of authenticity, sovereignty, soul purpose, freedom, love and power with as many people as I can. ‘

'All our journeys are different … your life may not in any way resemble mine, that’s reality. We are all a unique product of our souls, family, genetics and environment but many of us are hurting, stuck, disconnected, in denial, lack satisfaction with life, feeling lost, trapped, confused or somehow knowing we are not fully honouring our true deeper being that wants to live fully with authenticity, presence and passion.’

We ask you this question: 

: : ∞ : : ARE YOU READY TO JUMP OFF THE CLIFF? : : ∞ : :

_____________________________________________________

We are so often at the precipice of something we have wanted to do, embody or achieve....and we remain at the proverbial cafe, sipping tea, peering over the edge looking at the unknown water below, searching with our mind for the answers. Of course, the mind has no real answers. And so we are afraid. We may let our feet leave the ground, but more often than not we return to our comfort zone...because we are too afraid to feel the pain...really feel it all the way...and enter the gateway of new possibilities. What if you could jump when your being, your heart, your spirit knew it was time to change? In this training you will come to a point where you can choose, completely and resolutely, without reservation, to fling yourself off the rock.....and transform your life.

What's your edge? Are you ready to jump? What's getting in your way? To find out….come and do this training. It will take you to your edge, expand you and change your life forever.





 
 : : ∞ : : WHAT WILL I HAVE TO DO ?  : : ∞ : :

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 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.

ISTA Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Initiation

SSSin Level 2

8-day Experience: 17th - 24th August 2021

ISTA Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Initiation

SSSin Level 2

8-day Experience: 8th - 15th August 2021

Level 1 (SSSEx) begins its work once the decision is made that this is the way we want to live and not just a peak experience in a workshop. 

Level 2 (SSSIn) guides you through a series of self initiations that say goodbye to old patterns of relating and anchor the identity in the deep self that is already free, inherently loving and dynamically creative in the world.

ISTA’s initiation provides the teachings and experiences we didn’t receive around our spirituality, our relationship with the transpersonal and its integration with the personal and universal. 

This provides us with the opportunity to shift our identity into the soul and become the source of our own life, love and empowered expression in the world.

Its symbol is the offering up of the heart. Once the life is ‘given up’ or ‘taken over’ by this deeper part of ourselves then we are ready for the greater mysteries – the identification with the universal life of our cosmos and planet.

The self becomes a source of inflowing current to our surroundings enabling others to awaken, initiate and transform. We become a creative force in our environment.

Level 2 deepens the experience of Level 1 allowing for more hands-on practise with some of the tools and techniques taught. 

It provides an alchemical container for transformation through group practise, ritual and meditation.

  • The Shamanic initiation: Its core is death and rebirth. This overcomes the fear of death in the base chakra and also sets the shaman apart from the tribe to serve the tribe in a special way.

    It is an essential component to the integration of sexual and spiritual worlds because it results in the transcendence of ego and the dedication of one's awakened powers to the collective.

    The result is Power.
     

  • The Sexual Initiation - The rituals of self-pleasure and sacred spot in Level 1 awaken a deeper relationship with our sexual energies. In Level 2, we explore the unification of our masculine and feminine, conscious penetration and sacred union.

    The result is Love.
     

  • The Spiritual Initiation - Meditation training and essential identity inquiry open us into our primordial awareness and provide a taste of sunyata or the void experience.

    Invocatory temples combined with a personal vision quest provides each individual an opportunity for deeper levels of their being to be contacted, honoured and integrated.

    The result is Presence.
