THE TRAINING

Spiritual...Sexual....Shamanic ...

Each of these three areas alone carry enormous charge for shadow and misuse of power as well as potential for liberation, freedom, love and joy. Together, integrated, we begin to see what it means to be awake, empowered, in community and in service as love in the world.

This week provides the essential teachings and experiences that restore to us the type of education we should have had around our sexuality, our emotions and our relationships with the masculine and feminine. This provides for the experience of being truly alive and integrated.

This powerful 7 day training is a training for life and love and is for EVERYONE, practitioners, would-be practitioners and anyone who desires to take their personal empowerment to another level and to deepen their abilities of Self Mastery. Activities include hands on practice and coaching around the use and implementation of 7 incredible tools including emotional release, aspecting, voice dialogue, neurological reprogramming, exploration into ethics and boundaries and introduction of rituals of initiation.

This training is aimed at men and women who are dedicated to the ongoing practice of evolving consciousness and deeper embodiment and who support others on this path. Central to this are presence, awareness, personal empowerment, emotional intelligence, sexual wholeness, and a lifestyle which honours the interconnectedness of all things. Acknowledging and embracing one's shadow (or un-integrated psychological material) is the cornerstone of this work.

Some people take this training for their own personal enrichment while others are interested in the profession of Sacred Sexual Practitioner or Educator. Join with other motivated individuals from a diverse background of experiences, including computer techs, massage therapists, counsellors, artists, healers, entrepreneurs, and students, to 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. If it is your truth, It is possible to complete the entire training/experience without touching another person. How do we fully take back our power as well as support others to live free? The ISTA facilitators are looking forward to meeting you in Love, Power, and Freedom.

PLEASE NOTE: This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space. ISTA is a mystery school and approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process.

 

THE EXPERIENCE 

This training is aimed at people who are dedicated to evolving consciousness, so together as a group and as humanity as a whole, we play our part 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.

This course is open to all who are called. No prior knowledge of shamanism, tantra or sacred sexuality is necessary and people with previous experience are welcomed. All genders of any sexual orientation, and relationship style are welcome! Those with previous experience are warmly welcomed, as they add to the power of the field. This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space.

ISTA approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process.

Nudity and intimate touch are optional parts of this training. The cornerstone of this work is about consent, developing healthy boundaries and communication. You are always at choice (free to choose) and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. If it is your truth, it is possible to complete the entire training experience without touching another person or taking your clothes off.

ISTA Level 1 is a safe container that will allow, invite and offer you:

• The opportunity to stop, feel and take a look at yourself in a whole new way, whatever your life situation may be. This is an opportunity to wake up to your life.

• An invitation to take risks, meet and explore your edges. • Essential life skills we all should have received as teenagers.

• A space for you to see, show and live from the ‘you’ that lies beneath the mask. You will see more clearly where you are operating from ego and belief patterns of others and society.

• A view into where your inner masculine and inner feminine may be immature, unhealthy or at war. It will guide you to bring them back towards union, love and integration.

• An invitation to reconnect to and learn to love your emotional body and heart power…as well as your physical self.

• A vision of your glorious energy being, with skills that allow you to dance with this energy body alongside your physical body.

• The ability to seek wisdom from your body and heart, instead of your mind.

• Powerful opportunities for healing core wounds.

• A reminder of how to love yourself, to feel the healing power of pleasure, with ways to expand your sexuality and orgasmic potential.

• The deep understanding that sexuality and spirituality are one.

• Opportunities for deep healing around lost love, sexuality, grief, self love and mother and father wounds.

• A spotlight on how culture, religion and society has kept us from expressing who we really are.

• Powerful rituals that bring deep healing and power reclamation.

• An opportunity to consider what your life might look like, if it was not controlled by society’s expectations, ego, family, fear, shame and guilt.

• The knowledge of what it truly is to be a sovereign being.

Eugene Hedlund

Eugene has been traveling the world to share these transormational arts since 2008, inviting all who enter the space to open to the possibility of saying YES to life and then to step without hesitation, guilt, shame, fear or limiting beliefs into a full experience of that embodied YES!

'I am constantly inspired and re-inspired by the invitation to share in sacred circles all over the world, where seekers gather to open their hearts and invite others to do the same. In the end we are so much more alike than different. I am not here to offer anything new, but to help us remember something old, something true, something that has always been...that you are complete. You are enough. You are worthy of loving and being loved. Globally, we share the same yearning heart, the same desire to simply be seen as we are and feel accepted. Together we can support each other on this simple, but profound journey. The world is yearning for a Tantra Tribe to lead the way back home to love. May we all find our way home.' ~ Eugene Hedlund

THE VENUE

We are very happy to have found an amazing venue for this ISTA Level 1 training on the outskirts of Helsinki, Finland.

The energy of the forest around us and the lake is fantastic. We will be able to experience bonfires, the wonderful midnight sun, and enjoy the private sauna that is exlusively for our use at the lake. The water of the lake is extremely pure, and we can take wonderful swimming tours in the lake e.g to the nearest island.
