~~~~~~IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD! ~~~~~
If your soul is called to work with youth and/or you are a conscious parent ready to co-create a safe container for the next generation to explore the fullness of their relationship to self, each other, nature and the mysteries of the universe... then you must join us for ISTA's Family Fusion Experiment!
This is a FIRST-time opportunity for ISTA graduates to integrate their spiritual sexual shamanic path with their family life during an experimental week-long immersive summer camp in the woods of West Virginia!
This retreat is an exploration of what it takes for adults, kids, teens, and elders to be a whole embodied human beings. The curriculum is inclusive for non-parents who's soul's purpose is to work with youth and it explores Adult spaces as well as kids spaces for a variety of age-appropriate lessons. We support children to establish a healthy relationship with their own bodies as well as a relationship to their ancestral line. We also work on rescripting childhood wounding which often arises for adults who are around kids.
- Initiating youth into working with energy, nature, boundaries, and gender...and other aspects of what it means to be a healthy sovereign human being.
- Co-creating a new paradigm of parenting and re-writing the standard narrative of our dysfunctional family histories.
- Healing the social stigma around the mother/whore split or the father/Superman complex.
- Manifesting shared temple space for kids and parents!
- Allowing children a healthy space to acknowledge parentally sourced pain/trauma such as divorce, abandonment, emotional absence, etc. and teach them how to release emotions in a safe and empowered environment.
-Evolving an age-appropriate curriculum for sex education (Different age groups will get different teachings about energy, gender, boundaries etc.)
-Together we are upgrading ISTA as a mystery School towards the sustainability of an integrated culture that includes all stages of life.
All adults must have graduated from ISTA's SSSEX (Level 1).
Our youth program accepts children who have participated in at least one year of organized school.
Homeschoolers (or unschooling) would need an interview to see if they have the preparation. Must have a basic discipline and orientation towards group circles.
Toddlers are welcome but we are not able to offer a pre-school program so if your child is. under the age of 4, we require that parents bring a second adult to be available/responsible for little ones at all times.
All children must have informed consent from all legal guardians.

*ISTA IS NOT PSYCHOTHERAPY*
ISTA trainings are individual journeys that happen in a group environment. We are not psychotherapists, and this training is not professional therapy. Your ability to be self-responsible will be required in order to navigate the spiritual, sexual and shamanic space that ISTA provides. ISTA is a mystery school and approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We are not psychotherapists, and our training are not professional therapy. We recommend that if it is known, deep-seated trauma, you speak with your therapist before entering our group process.
Make your family part of the ISTA family.
