Continuing Personal Growth Education Towards Professional Development for ISTA Graduates
Our aim is to support the graduates of ISTA to further their knowledge and transform their lives and careers into the field as skilled practitioners to facilitate sessions for somatic sexual healing.
In the ISTA Practitioner Training (ISTA-PT) we synthesize the powerful tools taught in the Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience with essential skills needed to guide powerful hands-on sexual transformational methods woven together over years of experience and developing the field of practitioner work.
The ISTA-PT is a holistic, in-depth system for transformation which emphasizes the power of sexual energy and the ways in which we can utilize the natural flow of this energy to provide a valuable framework for sexual wholeness, both in the sense of unraveling sexual “dysfunction” and in the sense of restoring trust and harmony between Masculine and Feminine. The ISTA-PT teaches how to facilitate sessions using these transformative tools.
This training is an essential guide for the modern day Daka/Dakini and Sexual Priest/Priestess.
In ISTA-PT, you will learn how to empower your client to understand, communicate and maintain healthy boundaries, needs and desires. Moreover, you will acquire the necessary skills to support your clients to activate and release their emotional body, using shamanic tools for transformation.
During the training, you will practice tuning into your own body wisdom which not only informs the work you do with your client, but also shows you how to meet them on a physical level, from a space of heart-centred connection.
An essential aspect of this work is activating energy and awakening through the heart. Thereby, you can empower your client to experience the presence of Love itself inside of his or her body rather than recycling past stories of shame, limitation, inadequacy, fear and guilt.
The ISTA-PT curriculum involves four cornerstones: Foundations, Body, Energy & Emotions, Spirit. Each of the cornerstones addresses a fundamental area of sacred sexual practitioner work.

3 Months of post-seminar support in the form of monthly online meetings and private group engagement.. During this time participants will receive marketing guidance, have homework assignments and receive peer and self review opportunities.
In the monthly meetings and through the group participation participants will receive additional guidance and have their questions answered. Participants are expected to share their experiences giving sessions, and they will receive personalized feedback and coaching from Triambika and other lead facilitators.
The monthly meeting calls will be recorded for those who cannot attend.
Each participant may also schedule private mentoring/coaching calls or face to face sessions with the lead facilitators for additional fees.
Session Case Studies
As part of the training, participants are required to perform 9 sessions and receive 3 sessions and present them as written case studies.

IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT MODULES 1 & 2.
The ISTA Practitioner Training is a living process that evolves from one module to the next module. In order to successfully graduate from the ISTA-PT, participants are required to complete both Modules 1 & 2.
While completion of both modules is compulsory for graduation, in some cases not every participant of Module 1 will move to Module 2.
This may be for a variety of reasons such as :
* Participant is undertaking ISTA-PT for personal learning, rather than professional studies.
* Not appropriate timing or based on the facilitator's evaluation process of the participant during Module 1. In these cases, facilitators and evaluators may recommend other developmental steps towards later graduation from Module 2.
Those moving on to Module 2 will have the opportunity to register on the final day of the Module 1 residential training and will have up to 7 days to complete the registration process.
