Level 1 (12pm Mon 19th November - 2pm Sun 25th November)

Spiritual...Sexual....Shamanic ... Each of these areas carries enormous potential for liberation, freedom, love and joy, as well as for integrating & healing our golden and painful shadow aspects. As we come to know all these aspects, we begin to see what it means to be awake, empowered, in community and in service as love in the world.

A powerful week-long residential at a country venue outside of Melbourne. A training for life and love, it is for EVERYONE: practitioners, would-be practitioners and anyone desiring to take their personal empowerment to another level and deepen their Self Mastery.

Activities include hands-on training in sexual shamanic practices, and coaching around the use and implementation of seven incredible tools: emotional release, aspecting, voice dialogue, neurological reprogramming, exploration into ethics and boundaries, and introduction of rituals of initiation.







Aimed at those dedicated to the ongoing practice of evolving consciousness and deeper embodiment, and to supporting others on this path. Central to this are presence, awareness, personal empowerment, emotional intelligence, sexual wholeness, and a lifestyle which honors the interconnectedness of all things. Acknowledging and embracing one’s shadow (un-integrated psychological material) is a cornerstone of this work.

Some people take this training simply for their own deep personal enrichment and evolution, while others are interested also in the profession of Sacred Sexual Practitioner or Educator. Join with other motivated individuals from diverse backgrounds: computer techs, bodyworkers, counsellors, tantra practitioners, artists, healers, entrepreneurs, and students. Together we create an intensely-satisfying learning journey, that will significantly impact your personal life and professional style.

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.

Though the training is designed to offer varied experiences of working with others to maximise learning, your personal boundaries are welcomed. If it is your truth, it is even possible to complete the entire training/experience without touching another person.



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.

SPACE IS LIMITED to ensure a good teacher-student ratio. Registrations will be closed when capacity is reached. 

The ISTA facilitators are looking forward to meeting you in Love, Power, and Freedom.

“This training was a transmission of freedom and love, freedom and love, freedom and love.  Its not about what society knows as sex or really about sex.  The work is around unveiling each and every person to be the greatest, most loving, most conscious and most free person they can be and then building a community that supports everyone to do that.  Its about finding your freedom.  Its about connecting with your own inner wisdom save of which is stored in your cellular being and releasing that.  It offers amazing simple clarity around our sounds and triggers and shadow.  How to see them, how to be free to bring love to those parts of ourselves. It allows us to love our complete being so we can be free.  

Most importantly its not in your head.  Its about embodiement, deep embodiement. Simple wisdom that is profound, life changing,  Its an amazing collection of bits and pieces of gold and the the alchemy creates much more than the sum of those components.

It has integrity.  Each facilitator is beyond reproach.  Deep Deep respect to each of you.”

Chris Glover, Perth

“This kind of training helps to open you up you who you really are.  To help you understand yourself in ways you have always wished you could but you werent sure how.  I believe from the bottom of my heart that the sacredness of this beautiful trainng will expand you in every way imaginable.  The dancing, meditations, emotional release, rutuals that are done show you the beauty in the human body, the realness, the rawness of who we really are. The personal growth I have experienced is absolutely incredible.”

Leah Thompson

“ISTA level 1 Round 3 was no less amazing, humbling and profound than my first two forays into the Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience. I continue to be surprised at the brave souls who show up to explore themselves and the concept of their own freedom and self expression. The beautiful mix of all ages, backgrounds, cultures, professions and beliefs make for a unique experience every time. Every human being should gift themselves this space for openness and acceptance. There is nothing to fear in this space, except your fear itself. There is nothing to be lost and everything to be gained. The container created by the facilitators is always safe and strong .. while allowing any chaos that needs to or wants to emerge. The participants in turn are open, accepting and loving towards one another while learning the lessons to be had from the powerful mirrors they meet. Level 1 offers the opportunity to examine your life relationships to family, lovers and yourself. It invites an examination of our inner shadow and beauty. It shines a light up to say 'come back to yourself remember and be whole'. Embrace your inner child, your sexual self, your joyful self, your sadness, your grief and your shadow. Question your programming, conditioning and your ego. All you need to bring is your presence and willingness.”


“Well, I dont know where to start but this training has deepened the experience of myself.  I came in open minded and I found myself unlocking doors that had been shut and barriered, keeping me stuck,  This training provides a safe place where everyone can feel trust, safety, love, freedom and are seen and heard as their true self.  We drop into our most vulnerable aspects of ourselves and by doing that we are taken or come out on the end of the spectrum feeling liberated and more alive than ever.  Our fires are burning like bushfires and the love in our hearts is existential.”

Cassundra Ryan

“This particular training really brought me to a place of seeing all of myself and all of others.  Not only the pretty love and light stuff, but also those things we don’t usually want to see and accept in ourselves and the world.  It was a week of being real and raw, feeling all of our feelings.  How deep down the rabbit hole do you want to go?”

Jason Bonder

“What I realised from this training is that we all are, at the core of our being, our natural state - LOVE, ABUNDANCE, BEAUTY, TRUTH, FREE- its just somewhere along the way someone or some fucked up experience told us otherwise and we forgot.  So we need another earth angel to remind us of our true nature,  I recently forgot some of my true nature and ISTA training held a beautiful safe container to unleash and remind me of my true divine nature.  A deep shamanic spiritual experience.  Permission to say YES to who you are, all of you.”
