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 practices from Tantra, Taoist and shamanic traditions and adding to this more modern day NLP and bioenergetics, guided visualization, emotional release,
Kundalini activation, energy tracking and conscious touch and consent skills 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.
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 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.
Three skilled Temple Arts Faculty 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.
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 open, relaxed and present and be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.

I ask you this question: Are you ready to jump off the edge?
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 do I need to know?
No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary and people with previous experience are welcomed.
What will I have to do?
Nudity and intimate touch are optional parts of this training. The cornerstone of this work is about consent, developing healthy boundaries and communication. You are always at choice and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you.
