Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Initiation (SSSin) Lev 2

Facilitators: Lead Faculty Bruce Lyon, Lead Faculty Araminta Barbour, Lead Faculty Laurie Handlers

Back for the third time in Byron Bay, at the magic location Paradise One, is this life changing training.
This time with the option to do level 1 before at the same venue see details HERE  for people who want to keep expanding in this field for 2 consecutive weeks!

Prerequisite: Completion of one or more ISTA SSSEx Level 1 trainings.


SSSEx 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 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.

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.

The Level 2 training deepens the experience of level 1 , allows for more hands on practise with some of the tools and techniques taught and provides a 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 – The rituals of self pleasure and sacred spot in Level 1 awaken a deeper relationship with our sexual energies. In Level 2 we explore the unification of our masculine and feminine, conscious penetration 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, honoured and integrated. The result is Presence.
