Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Initiation – SSSIn Level 2

Sainte-Lucie des Laurentides, Québec, Canada

ISTA Montreal, Quebec, Canada - October 9-15, 2020

Level 2 guides the participant through a series of self-initiations that say goodbye to old patterns of relating and anchor the identity in the deep self that is already free, inherently loving and dynamically creative in the world.

This week provides the teachings and experiences we should have had around our spirituality, our relationship with the transpersonal and its integration with the personal and universal. This provides us with the opportunity to take initiation – to shift our identity into the soul and become the source of our own life, love and empowered expression in the world. Its symbol is the offering up of the heart. Once the life is ‘given up’ or ‘taken over’ by this deeper part of ourselves then we are ready for the greater mysteries – the identification with the universal life of our cosmos and planet. The self becomes a source of inflowing current to our surroundings enabling others to awaken, initiate and transform. We become a creative force in our environment.

The Level 2 training deepens the experience of level 1, allows for more hands on practice with some of the tools and techniques taught and provides an alchemical container for transformation through group practice, ritual and meditation.

The Shamanic Initiation
Its core is death and rebirth. This overcomes the fear of death in the base chakra and also sets the shaman apart from the tribe in order to serve the tribe in a special way. It is an essential component to the integration of sexual and spiritual worlds because it results in the transcendence of ego and the dedication of ones awakened powers to the collective. The result is Power.

The Sexual Initiation
The rituals in Level 1 awaken a deeper relationship with our sexual energies. In Level 2 we explore the unification of our masculine and feminine, conscious penetration and sacred union. The result is Love.

The Spiritual Initiation
Meditation training and essential identity inquiry open us into our primordial awareness and provide a taste of sunyata or the void experience. An invocatory temple combined with a personal vision quest where each individual has an opportunity for deeper levels of their being to be contacted, honoured and integrated. The result is Presence.

This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space. ISTA is a mystery school and approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process.

Three highly skilled ISTA Lead faculty will teach, share, inspire, guide and bring light to the darkness in a serene and private retreat location:

Level 2 SSSin is not so much a training that provides tools and techniques but an experience that transforms the self working with those tools and techniques. It is a calling forth of the love, power and presence in the essential divinity of each person. This is the source of the healing power of the spiritual, sexual shaman and it is what forms the core of the unique gift each of us has to offer the world.

All the retreats include 3 delicious, healthy meals per day. Vegetarian and vegan options are included. Please let us know if you have special needs.

Kio-o

Kio-o is a unique retreat centre for learning and healing, located at the heart of a 125 acres domain in Sainte-Lucie des Laurentides, in the luxurious Laurentides mountains, around 100km from Montreal. The quiet environment, the private lake, the view from the cliff, the mountain and trails make for a magical place that fosters calm and deep relaxation. The silence, clean air of the hills, and the depth of contact with nature are a constant source of inspiration and renewal.

This journey has been an amazing experience that really shifted the way I feel about myself. Learning to integrate the male and female part within myself and see everybody else as both parts gives me a new way to approach others. After the training I really feel the way to honour and stand up for myself, while remaining on touch with physical and emotional body and the sweetness within it. what a journey, what a change, I don’t even want to go back to the way before Thanks for providing this beautiful journey with its deep insights and enormous skills.

There are no stories I can tell to describe this journey. Imagine you are an ocean with deep waters full of terrifying creatures. You close your eyes and jump in all the way to the bottom. As you come up through the ocean you encounter all these scary things and realize that they aren’t what you thought they were. You hold your breath and trust you will make it through. When you emerge from the depths you realize a beautiful, powerful creature awaits you. And that creature is you.

I am very grateful for all the different processes I went through this week, each one was profoundly transformative, the team provided me the loving safe space to let go of some very old and deep wounds.

ISTA training is of an essential nature. It takes the journey of a human experience into the perspective of healthy empowered being, it offers tools that allow you to heal your body and emotions and therefore enables participants to claim their birth right to truly live life.

ISTA offered me an opportunity and a space to shake up free up and escape into a reality of truth and honesty. It’s a journey I took with abundance of teachers that showed me the way into myself, the real me, my real body, my true pleasure. It made me find ways to beat the fears and illusions awake and realise they are there, it it poured for me a pavement to walk steady on, towards the encounter with myself. ISTA took me with many other and put us in a container, shook that container up again and again, and let us find what was shed, and what was left in each and every one of us. I am now stepping, aware, present and brave towards the most important change that will ever happen to me.

If you feel a call in your heart to attend this training then go for it… yes, your mind will come up with all kinds of struggles and fears.. but still trust your heart and go for it. It is not just another seminar that fills you with information, but it will touch you deeply within your very soul and then the healing takes place.. a healing from the source, such a sacred place… take the chance and do it for yourself .. for your life!

There are boundless lessons to take with me from this experience, but perhaps the most precious for me in this moment was to witness the creation of Sacred Space; space where all is held sacred and safe; space without judgement; space made from love. I truly feel that I can carry this with me and recreate it anywhere I want or need. Thank you!
