Level 2 (12pm Mon 26th November - 2pm Sun 2nd December)

ISTA 2 SSSin begins 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 training guides us 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. The Level 2 training deepens the experience of level 1, allows for more hands on practice with some of the tools and techniques taught. It provides an alchemical container for transformation through group practice, ritual and meditation.

Janine McDonald (lead), co-facilitated by Elaine Young and Raffaello Manacorda



What does ISTA 2 SSSin involve?

* The Shamanic initiation - At its core, it is about death and rebirth. This overcomes the fear of death in the base chakra and also sets the shaman apart from the tribe in order to serve the tribe in a special way. It is an essential component to the integration of sexual and spiritual worlds because it results in the transcendence of ego and the dedication of ones awakened powers to the collective. The result is authentic Power.

* The Sexual Initiation - The rituals in Level 1 awaken a deeper relationship with our sexual energies. In Level 2 we explore the unification of our masculine and feminine, the concept of conscious penetration and sacred union. The result is Love.

* The Spiritual Initiation - Meditation training and essential identity inquiry open us into our primordial awareness and provide a taste of sunyata or the void experience. An invocatory temple combined with a personal vision quest where each individual has an opportunity for deeper levels of their being to be contacted, honored and integrated. The result is Presence.

Three highly skilled ISTA  faculty will teach, share, inspire, guide and bring light to the darkness in a serene and private retreat location.

Level 2 SSSin is not so much a training that provides tools and techniques but an experience that transforms the self working with those tools and techniques. It is a calling forth of the love, power and presence in the essential divinity of each person. This is the source of the healing power of the spiritual, sexual shaman and it is what forms the core of the unique gift each of us has to offer the world.
