ISTA Level 1

~Spiritual, Sexual, Shamanic Experience~


 

International School of Temple Arts (ISTA) is a non-profit educational organization committed to raising consciousness & sexuality education, providing trainings to individuals, practitioners and teachers, and supporting the emergence of the Temple Arts around the world.

 

A training for life and love

This training is suitable for anyone who wish to master your emotions, understand your self better on all levels and have more acceptance and unconditional love towards your community.

SSSEx referrs to Spiritual, Sexual, Shamanic Experinece. The areas of Spirituality…Sexuality….Shamanism 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.

What we will do

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.

Who is the training for?

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.

 

Live your truth

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.

We will be hosted in a beautiful garden at Ängsbacka in the deep Swedish forests. The venue provides us with all the peace and stillness that we need to go really deep and we are surrounded by lakes and forests for small trips during the breaks. The food is vegetarian and served with care and love.

PLEASE NOTE: 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.

Full calendar of events and trainings: https://sheddingskins.com/cal/ss/photo

Eugene has been traveling the world to share these transformational arts since 2008, inviting all who enter the space to open to the possibility of saying YES to life and then to step without hesitation, guilt, shame, fear or limiting beliefs into a full experience of that embodied YES!

“I am constantly inspired and re-inspired by the invitation to share in sacred circles all over the world, where seekers gather to open their hearts and invite others to do the same. In the end we are so much more alike than different. I am not here to offer anything new, but to help us remember something old, something true, something that has always been…that you are complete. You are enough. You are worthy of loving and being loved. Globally, we share the same yearning heart, the same desire to simply be seen as we are and feel accepted. Together we can support each other on this simple, but profound journey. The world is yearning for a Tantra Tribe to lead the way back home to love. May we all find our way home.”
