This training is aimed at people who are dedicated to evolving consciousness, so together as a group and as humanity as a whole, we play our part in heaven on earth.
Central to this is full presence, personal & transpersonal awareness, personal empowerment, emotional intelligence, sexual health & wholeness, and a lifestyle which honors the interconnectedness of all things. Embracing one’s shadow is one of the cornerstones & methods of personal transformation, liberation & expanded potential.
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.
