The International School of Temple Arts (ISTA) returns for the 7th year to stunning Lake Atitlan at wonderful Villa Sumaya to offer global graduates of its Level 1 program the chance to deepen alignment with soul purpose.
This training is for you if …
- You are curious about who you are beyond the personal
- You live in the spiritual world and are on some level afraid to BE HERE
- You have forgotten you are an infinite being and need reminding that you are in fact pure limitless potentiality itself
- You long for a deep real and authentic connection with your divinity and wish to connect to and share who you are from that space
- You struggle with the blood and guts of life and want to die to all that is causing you pain in your life
- This training is only for those who are ready to burn in the fire of their own love. It is not for the faint of heart. It is for those who can no longer live a lie and want to truly die for love.
Is that you?
Level 2 guides the participant through a series of self-initiations that say goodbye to old patterns of relating and anchor the identity in the deep self that is already free, inherently loving and dynamically creative in the world.
While deepening the experience of level 1, the Level 2 training shifts focus from the healing and integration of the personal self to the transpersonal realms, providing an alchemical container for transformation through group practise, ritual and meditation.
- The Shamanic initiation – its core is death and rebirth. This overcomes the fear of death in the base chakra and also sets the shaman apart from the tribe in order to serve the tribe in a special way. It is an essential component to the integration of sexual and spiritual worlds because it results in the transcendence of ego and the dedication of ones awakened powers to the collective. The result is Power.
- The Sexual Initiation – In Level 2 we explore the integration of our sexual life force energy in the unification process of our masculine and feminine, animal and angelic aspects. The result is Love.
- The Spiritual Initiation – Meditation training and essential identity inquiry open us into our primordial awareness and provide a taste of sunyata or the void experience. Each individual has an opportunity for deeper levels of their being to be contacted, honoured and integrated. The result is Presence.
