ISTA - Practitioner Training July 20 - 27, 2020


This training is a unique, comprehensive and career-focused program that will support your development as a skilled practitioner, whether by adding to your existing skills or by giving you the confidence to set up your own business! Jump to the next level of your career as a sacred sexual practitioner!

We aim to support the graduates of ISTA to further their knowledge and transform their lives and careers into the field as skilled practitioners to facilitate sessions for somatic sexual healing.

In the ISTA Practitioner Training (ISTA-PT) we synthesize the powerful tools taught in the Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience with essential skills needed to guide powerful hands-on sexual transformation—methods woven together over years of experience and developing the field of practitioner work.

The ISTA-PT is a holistic, in-depth system for transformation which emphasizes the power of sexual energy and the ways in which we can utilize the natural flow of this energy to provide a valuable framework for sexual wholeness—both in the sense of unraveling sexual “dysfunction” and in the sense of restoring trust and harmony between Masculine and Feminine. The ISTA-PT teaches how to facilitate sessions using these transformative tools.

This training is an essential guide for the modern day Daka/Dakini and Sexual Priest/Priestess.

In ISTA-PT, you will learn how to empower your client to understand, communicate and maintain healthy boundaries, needs and desires. Moreover, you will acquire the necessary skills to support your clients to activate and release their emotional body, using shamanic tools for transformation.

During the training, you will practice tuning into your own body wisdom which not only informs the work you do with your client but also shows you how to meet them on a physical level, from a space of heart-centered connection.

An essential aspect of this work is activating energy and awakening through the heart. Thereby, you can empower your client to experience the presence of Love itself inside of his or her body rather than recycling past stories of shame, limitation, inadequacy, fear, and guilt.

Key Notes About PT Modules 1 & 2.

 The ISTA Practitioner Training is a living process that evolves from one module to the next module. To successfully graduate from the ISTA-PT, participants are required to complete both Modules 1 & 2.

While completion of both modules is compulsory for graduation, in some cases not every participant of Module 1 will move to Module 2.


This may be for a variety of reasons such as :

* Participant is undertaking ISTA-PT for personal learning, rather than professional studies.

* Not appropriate timing or based on the facilitator's evaluation process of the participant during Module 1. 

In these cases, facilitators and evaluators may recommend other developmental steps towards later graduation from Module 2.


Those moving on to Module 2 will have the opportunity to register on the final day of the Module 1 residential training and will have up to 7 days to complete the registration process.
