                           A TRAINING FOR LIFE

May 21-28, 2018 ~ Awakeland, Monchique, Portugal

Facilitated by Rex McCann, Komala Lyra & Ellie Wilde

A transformative experience weaving  spirituality, sexuality and cosmic reality. 

This training offers a completely safe and caring environment, where your choices and boundaries are honored, so you can relax and explore sexuality free from old dogmas, fear, shame and guilt.

An invitation to dive into your own spontaneity,  enhancing sexual power as the root of our life force, creativity and abundance. 

Emotional awareness and clear communication are encouraged to support relating with yourself and others, out of self-responsibility, inner freedom, and integration of masculine and feminine qualities within. 

​What is called SPIRITUAL is often viewed as something higher, better, confined within specific practices, and separate from daily life. 

​For centuries, SEXUALITY has been charged with social, religious, moral conditioning that imposed distortions, guilt, shame, and fear in our behaviors and choices.

The SHAMANIC realm has been seen as belonging to native cultures and disassociated from Western values. 

​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.

REX McCANN (New Zealand)

Has been leading transformational programmes with men and women for 25 years. 

His experience has been honed from working extensively with groups in all kinds of settings from the wilderness to corporations, prisons to ashrams, and anywhere in the community people are showing up for wisdom.

Over his life he has explored diverse mystery traditions, shamanistic practices and spiritual enquiry. His outer world expressions have been diverse - from a young hunter living in the wilderness, to activism, street theatre, trainer, community catalyst and group leadership. He has a solid reputation for leading potent rites of passage and known for his wise and playful style and ability to hold people with love while they shed their skin.

As the founder of Essentially Men, he pioneered the ground breaking men's work of Aotearoa New Zealand, and co-founded the Heart Politics Gatherings.

He is trained in group work, psychodrama, expressive therapies, co-counselling, and has a masters in Social Ecology. He  is the author of Fatherless Sons (Harper Collins) and On Their Own (Finch).

Rex has stopped trying to improve himself...instead he has turned to loving the life force that is living him, which includes embodying the joy and transformative power of sexuality. 

He has moved into teaching with ISTA because his delight is to share community with kindred souls on this journey of loving life and he is drawn to contribute to the powerful transmission and embodied teachings that are evolving here.  


A vibrant mystic gypsy, dakini, dancer, and artist, Komala lives fully the essence of heart-soul enjoying the body as a channel for consciousness.  

Her presentations activate life force and essential power, naturally awakening sensuality and sexuality. She invites intimacy with ourselves, and while relating with others.

In a spontaneous and intuitive way, with clarity, gentleness and rich experiential resources, she invites daring beyond limitations, touching the space of freedom where love is our nature...

With more than 30 years experience offering educational programs internationally, she shares refined skills in the healing arts-dance, merging Ayurveda-Yoga-Tantra as one path. 

She has authored several books, is a professional member of NAMA (National Ayurveda Medical Association, USA),  has been a resident at Osho Multiversity and Mystery School faculty (in India and USA) for over 15 years, and is presently Lead faculty at ISTA.
