The Level 2 training deepens the experience of level 1 , allows for more hands on practise with some of the tools and techniques taught and provides a alchemical container for transformation through group practise, ritual and meditation.
Level 1 (SSSEx) begins its work once the decision is made that this is the way we actually want to live and not just a peak experience on a workshop. Level 2 however, 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.

Raffaello Manacorda is an international Tantra teacher, Yoga instructor and Daka (sacred sexual healer). He has been practicing Tantra for more than 15 years and has undergone intensive training in several styles of Yoga. After completing a master’s degree in Philosophy, Raffaello spent more than twelve years living in alternative communities and experimenting with radically alternative lifestyles.
It was in those wild years that he first encountered Tantra, the “rebel way to Spirit”, and got fascinated with it. This developed into a life-long practice, first on a solo journey, then studying Tantra and Yoga in some of the best worldwide schools.
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.
