“The ISTA Level 1 training is pure alchemical magic. Just when I thought there wasn’t room for huge growth and transformation in my being … my doors were blown open. I learned, I healed, I grew and i was transformed into a bigger expression of who I am. I have nothing but love and gratitude for this experience and the entire ISTA staff. Life changing. (Guatemala, 2013)Kevin Brizendine
Such a RADICAL NEED for your work, sister. A space of safe and deep exploration in which the veils of patriarchy are insightfully fractured and the Light of the Spirit in its wholeness -not anymore identified with genders or any other kind of roles- unfolds. Self and collective understanding and healing, creation of sacred circles of sisterhood that transcend boundaries and frontiers. Embracement of the lunar archetypes that had been interested hidden to us. Thank you, Araminta, for invoking, and holding this space to reclaim, and specially, for inviting us to embody and thoroughly manifest our full magical and divine potentiality. May we all heal and awaken to the wholeness of the Sacred Feminine. (Looking forward for your next wemoon’s call!). LCThe Blood Mysteries Women's Workshop
The sacred and safe space you held allowed deep emotions to be expressed out loud. I felt I could travel very deep within knowing I was safely guided and accepted no matter what. It helped me reconnect with powerful parts of myself and embrace all of who I am. I experienced a big release of emotions and it helped me to see more clearly what was really going on inside.Emotional Release Private Session
