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 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.

Organized by Conscious Sensuality :
"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
"A large magnetic attraction pulled me to the first Irish ISTA training, like the kind of pull the moon has on me when I'm trying to sleep but feel drawn to howl outside instead. I had been resisting it with all my rational might. 'I don't need it, I'm doing the work already, I can't afford it' but all the time my belly was screaming at me to go, my intuition was telling me I was just meant to be there...Was there any fibre of my being that came home after the week wishing that I had stayed home? No. Not a cell in my body, not a whisper of breath regrets flying into that particular flame. I found not only the missing piece in the jigsaw puzzle of my life, but a whole new portal that opened up through it. My expectations were surpassed a hundred fold throughout the Training. And I'm so grateful."
"An incredible opportunity. It was a deeply, powerfully transformational week for me... both personally and professionally. This second time just went deeper into Love. Again I met so many beautiful souls, some of which are very dear friends now. It's not just what get from a week like this; it's what you take to it too, and the gift of seeing that reflected back to you is priceless."
"Am so in awe. The depth of this work continues to unfold. I'm reminded to get out of my own way and to allow it all to flow. Truly beautiful and awe inspiring. Words fail to express the depth of connection and the explosion in my heart. Thank you"
"The power and depth of this training continues to unfold in myself profoundly…presence has finally dawned here and this presence shows me how to hold all of myself through the various inner and outer manifestations. I feel steady and grounded, life has begun to flow as a continuous self-nourishment. Big love and deeply heartfelt thank you to all of the trainers, in whom I feel absolute trust. I very much look forward to my next training"
"The ISTA experience has been a deeply healing and transformational journey for me. Not only did we learn to honor our boundaries and creating safe spaces for healing our wounds, we were also guided to take one hundred percent responsibility for our emotional well-being by learning shamanic tools for release and renewal. The whole training aims at empowering people by giving them tools to reclaim their ease, love and power, no matter what the outer circumstances may represent. I highly recommend this training to anyone who is genuinely devoted to transformation, wholeness and healing to unfold on all levels."
"The ISTA retreat was phenomenal. I was amazed by some of the things that came up for me - things that I never realized I was holding on to on any level at all. I'd been having a sense for some time that I was going to have a breakthrough in my own process and the retreat has been a huge part of that. I'm truly in awe of the process we went through during our week together and excited for the future."
"I feel so full it feels like the maiden voyage all over again...young warrior/warrioress ..girl becoming woman..boy becoming man.. learning how to stalk myself .. how to hunt .. how to fight for what is rightfully mine..my sovereignty..my heart feels soft and open, beating strong behind a permeable breast plate...this shared experience has bequeathed me a sword of light, a suit of arms and a black stallion to ride out into the shadows and illuminate my path."
"ISTA level 1 Round 3 was no less amazing, humbling and profound than my first two forays into the spiritual sexual shamanic practitioners experience/training. 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."
"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."
“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”
