Being Your Full Self

The Experience

This training is aimed at people who are dedicated to evolving consciousness hand in hand with its deepest embodiment so together as a group and as humanity as a whole, we play our part in heaven on earth.

Central to this is full presence, personal & transpersonal awareness, personal empowerment, emotional intelligence, sexual health & wholeness, and a lifestyle which honors the interconnectedness of all things. Embracing one’s shadow is one of the cornerstones & methods of personal transformation, liberation & expanded potential.

No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary and people with previous experience are welcomed. Couples or singles of any sexual preference may attend. The greater mix of prior experiences the richer the training!
