ISTA Sweden Spiritual Sexual Shamanism Level 1
August 3, 2015 - August 9, 2015Sek13.500
Spiritual…Sexual…Shamanic… each of these three areas alone carry enormous charge for shadow and misuse of power as well as potential for liberation, freedom, love and joy. Together, integrated, we begin to see what it means to be awake, empowered, in community and in service as love in the world.
This powerful 7 day training is coming for the first time to Sweden!!!! …we are so blessed. It is a training for life and love and is for EVERYONE, practitioners, would-be practitioners and anyone who desires to take their personal empowerment to another level and to deepen their abilities of Self Mastery. Activities include hands on practice and coaching around the use and implementation of 7 incredible tools including emotional release, aspecting, voice dialogue, neurological reprogramming, exploration into ethics and boundaries and introduction of rituals of initiation.
This training is aimed at men and women who are dedicated to the ongoing practice of evolving consciousness and deeper embodiment and who support others on this path. 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.
Some people take this training for their own personal enrichment while others are interested in the profession of Sacred Sexual Practitioner or Educator. Join with other motivated individuals from a diverse background of experiences, including computer techs, massage therapists, counsellors, artists, healers, entrepreneurs, and students, to create an intensely-satisfying learning journey, that will significantly impact your personal life and professional style.
This revolutionary Life empowerment course supports us to masterfully direct our primal and sexual nature so that we more deeply embody a fully integrated, respectful and vibrant relationship with ourselves and others. Attendees include those from the various spiritual/sexual paths of celibacy, monogamy, and polyamory. 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 possible to complete the entire training/experience without touching another person. How do we fully take back our power as well as support others to live free? The teachers, Andrew Barnes, Karina Velasco and Aramita Barbour are looking forward to meeting you in Love, Power, and Freedom.
Andrew Barnes is an internationally acclaimed Tantric sex, relationship, and orgasm coach, sexologist, speaker, master bodyworker and author of Heart of the Flower and Relationship Tantra.

Andrew has created the International Tantric Relationship and Sexuality Coaching Program and is training people around the world to guide individuals and couples in cultivating a profound depth of vibrancy and intimacy in their daily lives.
“Living from our hearts, letting go of what we think we know and celebrating our bodies and our sexuality without shame is our birthright. This is the beginning of the true path to freedom, a raising of consciousness and an unlayering of social conditioning that binds us all within a limited context of experience and pleasure.”
Andrew is a leading authority on women’s sexuality, respected among his peers for his expertise and craft based on extensive studies and experience in Tantric practices, bodywork and sexuality philosophy. He has given talks, run courses and given sessions in more than 23 countries worldwide.

“Whether your sexuality has been a source of joy or of shame, of pleasure or of pain, it holds powerful keys to life mastery. It is the energetic thread connecting you to the same power that created everything you bear witness to. When we are ready to explore the mystery of our sexual life-force energy, we stand at the doorway to manifesting our deepest dreams; to a life of liberated living AS loving power.”

Of all the wonderful things I could say about this training, one thing kept rising to the top.
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 On The Edge”, sipping tea, peering over the edge looking at the unknown 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 on the edge…because we are too afraid to feel whatever is in the unknown…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 training you will come to a point where you can choose, completely and resolutely, without reservation, to fling yourself off the edge…..and transform your life.
What’s your edge? Are you ready to jump? What’s getting in your way? To find out..come and to this this training. It will take you to your edge, support you to expand in awareness, presence, and love thus changing your life forever.
“This training was a portal into sacred sexuality…I am extremely grateful for the amount of abundance this has created in my life…It has given me a platform for an ongoing freedom which has enriched my life beyond my wildest dreams.” – GS
“These people are actually embodying what all the others are only talking about…This is the deepest, purest, most profound work of its kind I know of. Gentle, yet powerful and compelling…whole, present, real.” – RR
“I have been through some of the best therapeutic programs available on the planet and my experience with [ISTA] leaves no close second place. I am really sold on it being great and look forward to going deeper with it.” – DC
“I cannot recommend it highly enough! It’s a powerful experience and a rare opportunity for folk to step into their power and address old wounds which hold us back from living with joy and freedom. There is nothing else which gives this opportunity for self-empowerment and growth. It addresses core issues around sexuality which are integral to our whole being. It’s well-structured, professionally managed, and hugely transformational” – JB
