ISTA SSSEX LEVEL 1 - Northern California

Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience

October 7th-14th , 2016 (Lupin Lodge)



Prices include lodging for this residential retreat and all meals.

This retreat is a deep dive into the True Self. Let go. Be present. Experience well-being. Manifest a life filled with love, joy, freedom and abundance. If you are ready to transform your life, this experiential 8-day event is for you. Thousands of people on 5 continents have attended this ISTA training over the past 15 years and have been radically changed, for the better, by uncovering reactive patterns and transforming them into conscious ways of being.

This retreat focuses on clearing shame, guilt and fear related to your sexuality and authenticity. The masculine and feminine archetypes are explored because when they are fully integrated doors open to a deeper knowing of the Self, as whole and complete. This is done through multiple pathways of transformation: guided visualization, emotional release, shamanic initiations and conscious touch are just a few of the practices used to explore the inner realms.

This retreat unfolds as both an individual and tribal process within a powerful field of unconditional love, conscious-communication and appreciation for what-is-arising-moment-to-moment. By the end of this event, you will be more open, relaxed and in-touch with the effortless flow of life. No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend this retreat. This event is about expanding beyond your comfort zone, while honoring your healthy boundaries. Nudity and intimate touch are included in 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.
