Are you ready to go deeper? If you are a graduate of Level one, join us here!
Come join us on a unique permaculture intentional community farm for the International School of Temple Arts – Spiritual, Sexual, Shamanic Initiation Level 2 training. This follows the Level 1 training and the Hawaii Tantra festival, both in the same area!
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.
This training follows a Level 1 training in the same location just beforehand, with the nearby Hawaii Tantra Festival in between!
The Spiritual, S., Shamanic Initiation – Level 2
The Level 2 training deepens the experience of level 1, allows for more hands on practice with some of the tools and techniques taught and provides a alchemical container for transformation through group practice, ritual and meditation.
Level 1 (SSS Ex) begins its work once the decision is made that this is the way we actually want to live and not just a peak experience on a workshop. Level 2 however, 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.
Join international teachers Janine Ma-Ree, Ellie Wilde and Rex Rafiq for this deep dive into your being!
What are the three Initiations of Level 2?
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 Sensual Initiation – The rituals in Level 1 awaken a deeper relationship with our primal energies. In Level 2 we explore the unification of our masculine and feminine, conscious and sacred union. 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. An overnight invocatory temple combined with a personal vision quest where each individual has an opportunity for deeper levels of their being to be contacted, honored and integrated. The result is Presence.
What happens during this week?
This week provides the teachings and experiences we should have had around our spirituality, our relationship with the transpersonal and its integration with the personal and universal.
This provides us with the opportunity to take initiation – to shift our identity into the soul and become the source of our own life, love and empowered expression in the world. Its symbol is the offering up of the heart.
Once the life is ‘given up’ or ‘taken over’ by this deeper part of ourselves then we are ready for the greater mysteries – the identification with the universal life of our cosmos and planet. The self becomes a source of inflowing current to our surroundings enabling others to awaken, initiate and transform. We become a creative force in our environment.

PLEASE NOTE: 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.
