Conscious Intimacy

The Level 2 training deepens the experience of level 1, allows for more hands-on practice with some of the tools and techniques taught and provides an alchemical container for transformation through group practice, 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 in order 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 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 enquiry open us into our primordial awareness and provide a taste of sunyata or the void experience. An invocatory temple combined with a personal vision quest where each individual has an opportunity for deeper levels of their being to be contacted, honoured and integrated. The result is Presence.

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.

Three highly skilled ISTA Lead faculty will teach, share, inspire, guide and bring light to the darkness in a serene and private retreat location:

Level 2 SSSin is not so much a training that provides tools and techniques but an experience that transforms the self-working with those tools and techniques. It is a calling forth of the love, power and presence in the essential divinity of each person. This is the source of the healing power of the spiritual, sexual shaman and it is what forms the core of the unique gift each of us has to offer the world.

All the retreats include 3 delicious, healthy meals per day. Vegetarian and vegan options are included. Please let us know if you have any special needs.

2 guides the participant 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.

This week provides the teachings and experiences we should have had around our spirituality, our relationship with the transpersonal and its integration with the personal and universal. This provides us with the opportunity to take initiation - 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.
