Level 2 (5pm Mon 5th May - 2pm Sun 11th May)
This advanced training begins its work once you decide that the immersions of Level 1 are how you want to fully 'live', rather than just being a set of skills and perspectives and peak experiences at workshops. Peak experiences can be transformative, and many people take significant life-long beneficial change away with them from such. However, Level 2 guides you through a series of self-initiations that say goodbye to old patterns of relating, and anchor your identity into the deep self that is already free, inherently loving and dynamically creative in the world.
At Level 1 there are powerful experiences to awaken the healthy masculine and feminine energies and bring them into sacred relationship in your heart. A sense is gained of how life can be when the vitality is flowing, and we are free to be authentic in loving community. Level 2 of course offers further hands-on practice with some of the tools and techniques, but more importantly through group practice, ritual and meditation it provides a alchemical container for profound personal transformation .
The Shamanic Initiation - Its core is death and rebirth. This overcomes the fear of death in the base chakra and also sets the shaman apart 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 Power.
The Sexual Initiation - The rituals of self pleasure and sacred spot in Level 1 awaken a deeper relationship with our sexual energies. In Level 2 we explore the unification of our masculine and feminine, 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 overnight invocatory temple combined with a personal vision-quest where each individual has an opportunity for deeper levels of their being to be contacted, honoured and integrated. The result is Presence.
Level 2 is not so much a training of tools and techniques, but an evolutionary experience that transforms the self that is working with those tools and techniques. It is a calling forth of the presence, power and love 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.

"This training was a portal into sacred sexuality...I am extremely grateful for the amount of abundance this has created in my life...It has given me a platform for an ongoing freedom which has enriched my life beyond my wildest dreams." - GS
"These people are actually embodying what all the others are only talking about...This is the deepest, purest, most profound work of its kind I know of. Gentle, yet powerful and compelling...whole, present, real." - RR
"I have been through some of the best therapeutic programs available on the planet and my experience with [ISTA] leaves no close second place. I am really sold on it being great and look forward to going deeper with it." - DC
“I cannot recommend it highly enough! It's a powerful experience and a rare opportunity for folk to step into their power and address old wounds which hold us back from living with joy and freedom. There is nothing else which gives this opportunity for self-empowerment and growth. It addresses core issues around sexuality which are integral to our whole being. It's well-structured, professionally managed, and hugely transformational.” - JB
"I have explored study with several schools/teachers of Tantra, most of which have been very valuable and interesting, even gently life-changing. The first ISTA retreat I did remains the only training I have done where I literally felt myself energetically initiated into something beyond my comprehension. That was several years ago, and my life & Tantric experiences remain VERY significantly deepened and expanded." - AA
