Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience – Level 1

Amarte Maroma Hotel. Riviera Maya, Quintan Roo, Mexico

ISTA - Riviera Maya, Mexico - December 3-9, 2018

If you are ready to transform your life, this experiential 7-day event is for you.

Thousands of people on 5 continents have attended the ISTA training over the past 8 years and have been radically changed for the better by uncovering reactive patterns and transforming them into conscious ways of being.

This retreat focuses on clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt and fear related to sexuality and authenticity. We accomplish this through multiple pathways of healing: guided visualisation, emotional release, shamanic initiations, energy tracking and conscious touch are just a few of the practices used to dive deep into the inner realms.

You will learn to fully integrate your masculine and inner feminine archetypes, hence opening doors to a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete.

This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this event, you will feel more open, relaxed and present and be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.

No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend this retreat. This event is about expanding beyond your comfort zone, while honouring your healthy boundaries.

Nudity and safe intimate touch are a part of this training, however, you are always at choice and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. Individuals and couples of any sexual preference are welcome to attend.

Love is your birthright.
You do not need to earn it or prove yourself, you just need to live it.

If you are ready to radically enliven your sexuality and dive deep into the heart of your wild erotic nature, then join us.

Through a beautiful synthesis of neurological re-wiring, ancient tantric practice, and shamanism, we will activate the powerful life force that is dwelling in your body.

This training is right for you if you are ready and willing to:

  • Claim your erotic birthright to passion and pleasure
  • Release fear, guilt and shame around sexuality
  • Learn incredible tools and information that will enable you to use creative energy for regeneration, manifestation and spiritual transformation

This course is open to all who are called. Experience is not required.


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 trainings are not professional therapy. We recommend that if there is known, deep seated trauma, you speak with your therapist before entering our group process.

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!
