What do I need to know about this training?
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.
Is there any prior knowledge required to attend?
No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend. Those with previous experience are warmly welcomed, as they add to the power of the field.
Do i have to touch anyone?
Nudity and intimate touch are optional parts of this training. The cornerstone of this work is about consent, developing healthy boundaries, and communication. You are always at choice (free to choose), and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. If it is your truth, it is possible to complete the entire training experience without touching another person or taking your clothes off. In fact it is possible to do this training while wearing face mask, gloves and maintaining social distancing
