Awakening Power & Pleasure - An ISTA Toronto Taster with Frank Mondeose

Awaken your personal power.

Awaken your sexual power.

Awaken your heart radiance.

Live a more powerful and pleasurable life.

Join us for an incredible evening of Tantra, personal empowerment practices and sensual, consensual and healing touch.

Awaken to your authentic self!!

And get a taste of what an ISTA (International School of Temple Arts) training may look and feel like.

Pleasure is our birthright. It is the fuel for ecstatic expression of the body temple. It serves vitality, health, well-being and the ability for deep intimate connection with oneself, and others.

Culturally, we have accumulated a lot of shame, fear and guilt around pleasure and have pushed its expression into the shadow. Many of us have experienced “pleasure shadow”, as we have recently heard with women and men speaking out thanks to the #metoo movement.

The shadow expression of pleasure can appear as sexual violations, disempowering unconscious behaviors and over-indulgence to a complete denial and rejection of one’s own joy.

  • Collectively, we will explore the power of claiming our YES around desire and pleasure. We will practice healthy boundaries and discover our full NO. We can only be a full YES, if we have a strong NO.
  • In a safe, attentive, tender and sacred space, we will explore what “consensual current interactions” can look like. We will create reference points for personal relating with power, and sharing pleasure with another.
  • You will be at choice throughout the whole evening.
  • Enhanced or new personal and sexual empowerment tools.


  • Introduction and setting the frame for the exploration.
