<<<Updated Oct 2, 2020 - Event postponed due to outer circumstances>>>
 

Feeling the sadness & surrender letting go of the ISTA Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience in the UK - Nov 2020

 

We had a room full of humans, together with a dedicated team of assistants registered to dive deeper. Yesterday, I sent out a detailed email to everyone registered to the training with more information about why & how we reached that decision, and how to access full refunds.

 

We have been monitoring the outer circumstances since postponing the original ISTA Level 1 which was due to be held in the UK May to November, waiting to see how things may unfold in the UK, with an intention to hold the event, if it felt possible and aligned considering legalities, practicalities, quarantines for beings traveling from abroad, health, risk and the potential for deep benefit, creating a space to drop deeper within.

 

Taking everything into account, feeling into the energy under which this week would be operating, and given the risk that things could still change what and how we are able to do this week (i.e to respect the changing laws/guidelines in the UK for gatherings of people), with a heavy heart, we have took the decision yesterday to cancel the in-person event.

 

To those of you drawn to immersing in deeper online containers with Elaine Yonge & I at this time - through the process of dissolution of this week-long journey, and also having to cancel another in-person event focussed on pleasure called Master Your Pleasure what arose was our decision to offer Master Your Pleasure online, a 4 -day Live Sessions journey - Oct 15 - 18, 10 am - 8 pm UK Time.

 

It is a deep immersion group and individual process. The journey will include online & offline experiences, sessions, paired practices, small group circles and breaks for rest, reflection & integration this will span the entire day with appropriate breaks.
If you feel drawn, would love to share space with you differently, till gathering in-person feels possible.

<<<How do you know the event is transformational & universal? >>>

Thousands of people have gone through this event worldwide, the individuals cover a wide age range from 18 to 80, varied backgrounds, all sexual orientations, those who are gender fluid or trans, differing professions from students, artists, surgeons, people from many different religions, races and nationalities. As this week-long is a journey through life's core experiences and wounds, it is universal. It touches and can affect individuals of any age, background, race etc, if you choose to allow and if you are open to receive the wisdom and gifts.


<<<What is the event about?>>>

This retreat focuses on clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt and fear related to sexuality and authenticity. The deeper transformation comes from reconnecting to your personal power, exploring sexuality is a fast path to encountering our own power challenges and gifts.

This is done through multiple pathways using the best of the ancient temple arts including Tantra, Taoist and Shamanic traditions and adding to this more modern day NLP, bio-energetics, guided visualization, emotional release, Kundalini activation, energy tracking, conscious touch and consent skills. The list above are just a few of the practices we use to dive deep into the inner realms. The inner masculine and inner feminine archetypes are explored because when they are fully integrated a door opens to a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete.

A note on Masculine & Feminine

Please don’t perceive that our use of the terms masculine and feminine is an indicator that ISTA operates from place of duality and gender separation. We do not, far from it we realise that we are all masculine and feminine regardless of our physical form. We use this terminology as it is an effective model for understanding the different energies or qualities that each if us is made up of. They do not translate to men and women or male and female.

Unique to ISTA

 

Three skilled Temple Arts Faculty all international teachers in their own right will share, inspire, guide and support you to bring light to the shadows where our power awaits to be reclaimed. You will receive information, guidance and lots of experiential practice around self love, boundaries and consent, emotional release, voice dialogue, neurological reprogramming, Orgasmic Yoga, learning to work with shamanic energy, owning one’s desires and the ability to manifest, accessing and speaking from your contra-sexual self (i.e gender opposite), conscious communication, Transformational Shamanic Breathwork, ancient temple arts rituals of healing/initiation and a powerful sexual clearing and activation processes. The ISTA facilitators are looking forward to meeting you in Love, Power, and Freedom.

 

Supportive Group Process

This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on safety, trust, unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this event, you will feel more in touch with your body, more aliveness and presence, more aware of your patterns and have some skills as to how to change them, more awareness of your emotions and how to hold them, lighter and perhaps more relaxed. You will be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.

 

A Note - Lead Faculty Elaine Young

"My personal journey is the reason I facilitate these trainings, for me they are by far the most effective weeklong personal transformational experience I have encountered. I want to share the possibility of living from a place of authenticity, sovereignty, soul purpose, freedom, love and power with as many people as I can. ‘ All our journeys are different … your life may not in any way resemble mine, that’s reality. We are all a unique product of our souls, family, genetics and environment but many of us are hurting, stuck, disconnected, in denial, lack satisfaction with life, feeling lost, trapped, confused or somehow knowing we are not fully honoring our true deeper being that wants to live fully with authenticity, presence and passion.’


<<<Who takes this event?>>>

 

Some people take this event for their own personal evolution, to gain a deeper self-connection and to enrich their relationships and empower their lives. Others are interested in exploring how it will add to their own professional life, whatever that may be, and some are interested in the professions of Sacred Sexual Practitioner or Sexuality Educator.

 

Attendees include those from the various spiritual paths and the sexual paths of celibacy, monogamy, and polyamory.

 

Couples, individuals and relationship groups of any formation are welcome, as are individuals of any sexual orientation and gender identity. The greater mix of prior experiences the richer the event! If it is your truth, it is possible to complete the entire event/experience without touching another person.

 

I ask you this question: Are you ready to jump off the edge?

We are so often at the precipice of something we have wanted to do, embody or achieve....and we remain at the proverbial cafe, sipping tea, peering over the edge looking at the unknown water below, searching with our mind for the answers. Of course, the mind has no real answers. And so we are afraid. We may let our feet leave the ground, but more often than not we return to our comfort zone...because we are too afraid to feel the pain...really feel it all the way...and enter the gateway of new possibilities. What if you could jump when your being, your heart, your spirit knew it was time to change? In this event you will come to a point where you can choose, completely and resolutely, without reservation, to fling yourself off the rock.....and transform your life. What's your edge? Are you ready to jump? What's getting in your way? To find out….come and do this event. It will take you to your edge, expand you and change your life forever.


<<<Any pre-requisites?>>>

No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend this retreat. Those with previous experience are warmly welcomed, as they add to the power of the field.

 

Note: 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.


<<<What will I have to do?>>>

You are always at choice and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. Nudity and intimate touch are optional parts of this event. The cornerstone of this work is about consent, developing healthy boundaries and communication.


<<<What happens during the event?>>>

ISTA Level 1 is a container that will allow, invite and offer you:

  • To stop, feel and take a look at yourself in a whole new way, irrespective of your life situation. This is an opportunity to wake up to your life

  • To take risks, meet and explore your edges in a safe container

  • Essential life skills we all should have received as teenagers

  • A space for you to see, show and live from the you that lies beneath the mask. You will see more clearly where you are operating from ego, belief patterns of others and society

  • A reflection of where your inner masculine and inner feminine are immature, unhealthy or where they are at war and it will guide you to bring them back towards union, love and integration. This is huge! See "A note on Masculine & Feminine" above on how we use the terms Masculine and Feminine.

  • A space to reconnect to, master and to learn to love your emotional body and heart power, as well as your physical self

  • A reference point of your glorious energy being and share skills as to how to dance with this energy body alongside your physical body

  • The opportunity to to seek wisdom from your body and heart, instead of your mind

  • Powerful opportunities for healing core wounds

  • To remember how to love yourself, to feel the healing power of pleasure and it will offer you ways to expand your sexuality and orgasmic potential

  • To see and deeply understand that sexuality and spirituality are one

  • Opportunities for deep healing around lost love, sexuality, grief, self love and mother and father wounds

  • To shine a light on places where culture, religion and society has kept us from expressing who we really are

  • To take part in powerful rituals that can bring deep healing and power reclamation

  • To consider what your life might look like, if it was not controlled by societies expectations, ego, family, fear, shame and guilt

  • To plead with you to know what it truly is to be a sovereign being
