Join Us on the Magical Land of Ivory's Rock, South East Queensland this May & June, 2021

and Step Into the Next Level of Your Evolution.

These powerful trainings provides the essential teachings and experiences that restore to us our full human technology. It gives us the type of education we should have had around our sexuality, our emotions and our relationships with the masculine and feminine energies within.

LEVEL 1 - Saturday 22nd to Friday 28th May, 2021

                 Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience (SSSex)                 Now Fully Booked, Open For Waitlist Applications


The training runs for seven days beginning with embodiment practices, followed by full days of rituals and experiences.

Activities include hands-on practice and coaching around the use and implementation of seven powerful tools including emotional release, aspecting, voice dialogue, neurological reprogramming, an exploration into ethics and boundaries and introduction of rituals of initiation.

This revolutionary life empowerment course also supports you to masterfully direct your primal and sexual nature, so you can more deeply embody a fully integrated, respectful and vibrant relationship with yourself, others and align with the life web.

Central to this are presence, awareness, personal empowerment, emotional intelligence, sexual wholeness, and a lifestyle which honours the interconnectedness of all things. Acknowledging and embracing one's shadow (or un-integrated psychological material) is the cornerstone of this work.

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

• The opportunity to stop, feel and take a look at yourself in a whole new way, whatever your life situation may be. This is an opportunity to wake up to your life.

• An invitation to take risks, meet and explore your edges while honouring your healthy boundaries.

• 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 and the belief patterns of others and society.

• A view into where your inner masculine and inner feminine may be immature, unhealthy or at war. It will guide you to bring them back towards union, love and integration. This is huge!

• An invitation to reconnect to and learn to love your emotional body and heart power…as well as your physical body.

• Awareness of yourself as an Energy Being, with skills that allow you to dance with this energy body alongside your physical body.

• The ability to harness wisdom from your body and heart, instead of only your mind.

• Powerful opportunities for healing core wounds.

• A reminder of how to love yourself, to feel the healing power of pleasure, with ways to expand your sexuality and orgasmic potential.

• The deep understanding that sexuality and spirituality are one.

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

• A spotlight on how culture, religion and society have kept us from expressing who we really are.

• Powerful rituals that bring deep healing and reclamation of your personal power.

• An opportunity to consider what your life might look like if it was not controlled by society’s expectations, ego, family, fear, shame and guilt.

• The knowledge of what it truly is to be a sovereign being.


Everyone ready to embrace the fullness of their human technology.

Life's core experiences and wounds are universal. They touch and affect individuals of all ages, cultures, backgrounds and race. Thousands of people on 5 continents have attended the ISTA trainings and have been radically changed for the better by uncovering reactive patterns and wounds and transforming them into conscious ways of being. All ages are welcome, from 18 to 100, couples and individuals, all backgrounds and professions, sexual orientations and paths, gender identities, religions, races and nationalities.

Some people take this training 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. Some are interested in the professions of Sacred Sexual Practitioner or Sexuality Educator. The greater the mix of prior experiences, the richer the training.

This revolutionary life empowerment course supports us to masterfully direct our primal and sexual nature so  we can more deeply embody a fully integrated, respectful and vibrant relationship with ourselves and others. The entire course is designed to support all individuals to find, feel, claim, and express their highest life expression. If it is your truth, it is totally possible to complete the entire training/experience without touching another person.

LEVEL 2 - Sunday, 30th May to Saturday, 5th June, 2021

Spiritual, Sexual, Shamanic Initiation (SSSin)


Level 1 (SSSEx) begins its work once the decision is made that this is the way we want to live and not just a peak experience in a workshop. Level 2 (SSSIn) guides you 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.

ISTA’s initiation provides the teachings and experiences we didn’t receive around our spirituality, our relationship with the transpersonal and its integration with the personal and universal. This provides us with the opportunity 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.

Level 2 deepens the experience of Level 1 allowing for more hands-on practise with some of the tools and techniques taught. It provides an alchemical container for transformation through group practise, 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 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 one's awakened powers to the collective. The result is Power.

The Sexual Initiation - The rituals of self-pleasure and sacred spot 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 opens us into our primordial awareness and provide a taste of sunyata or the void experience. Invocatory temples combined with a personal vision quest provides each individual 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.
