See our august 2020 ISTA SSSex (level 1) event here

Welcome to the journey that will take you into YOU!

This conscious retreat is a holistic healing journey into remembrance. The life-transforming experience will help you remember your POWER, who you are as a multidimensional being. You will reconnect with the flow of life force which sources from a place of self-respect and self-love. The transformational retreat is creating awareness through shamanism, Tantra, conscious sexuality and spirituality. The self-empowerment training retreat brings deep healing.

Spiritual growth will reconnect you to the life force of the universe. You will express yourself from your truth, transforming into a new way of healthy living.  Sexual energy is a Life force, it is the duality, the yin and yang. When you express this energy in a healthy mature way , you are then master of your destiny.


The ISTA level one Self Empowerment training retreat will help you see and honor the conditioning and shame we attach to sexual energy. It will allow you to remember your essence and reconnect to it. With shadow work we see how shame and guilt has controlled us and held us back. Shadow work will help you see how to step out of this prison, be freed of this repression. This transformational work will help you live as a sovereign being. 

What will you learn?

•The ancient knowledge of understanding your power and your existence. 

•Generate a safe, loving environment to explore your limits.

•Remember who you are and reconnect to yourself as a multidimensional being.

•Realize the wisdom of your heart and body.

•Sense your sexual energy's healing power and love yourself.

•Powerful rituals will bring you back into your bodies and the present moment. 

•A chance to understand what your life can be when you break free from the bounds created by society’s expectations.

•The awareness of what it is to be the master of your existence.

When life force if freely flowing, everything changes because you have changed. Nothing will ever be the same again.  You will be coming from a place of self-mastery, and you will be in total control of your  life. You will be conscious of all decisions you make, and you will be making those decisions from a place of love.

SSSex  - Spiritual Sexual Shamanic -  is a deep powerful combination. It  realigns the body into consciousness in a courageous and blissful way.
