SPIRITUAL SEXUAL SHAMANIC EXPERIENCE ! 

Join us in Winter Park, Colorado

July 12-19, 2015

Do you desire deeper intimacy, understanding & sexual connection?

 Do you long to tap more deeply into your passion & what is alive for you right now?

Are you ready to break free of old patterns & embrace your inner guidance system?

If so, then join us for a life changing event this summer in the spectacular Rocky Mountains of Colorado!

If you are ready to transform your life, this experiential 7-day event is for you. Thousands of people on 5 continents have attended the ISTA training over the past 14 years and have been radically changed for the better by uncovering reactive patterns and transforming them into conscious ways of being. 

This retreat focuses on clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt and fear 
related to sexuality and authenticity. This is done through multiple pathways of healing: guided visualization, emotional release, shamanic initiations, energy tracking and conscious touch are just a few of the practices used to dive deep into the inner realms. The inner masculine and inner feminine archetypes are explored because when they are fully integrated a door opens to
a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete. 

This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising.  By the end of this event, you will feel more open, relaxed and present and be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like. No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend this retreat. This event is about expanding beyond your comfort zone, while honoring your healthy boundaries. 

Nudity and intimate touch are a part of this training, however, you are always at choice and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you.  Individuals and couples of any sexual preference are welcome to attend.

February 6-8   Begins Friday 7 PM – Ends Sunday 6 PM

Are you a woman who:

  • Feels frustrated, shutdown and out of touch with her joy and passion?
  • Is ready to give up putting other people’s needs and wants ahead of her own wellbeing?
  • Wants to radically transform her life and reclaim the goddess that is hidden within?

If your answer to any of these questions is “Yes,” this event is for you. Come and experience breakthroughs and discover how to tap into your radiant sexual energy and manifest more ease, intimacy and pleasure in your life.

“Cheryl and Crystal create a safe, inviting space for women to access more of their authentic selves beyond the facades, wounds and stories that can run our lives. Their combination of vulnerability and presence model the self-sovereignty that I came to the workshop to enhance in myself.  I was very moved by my emotional experience, but also left with concrete tools and concepts to keep practicing in my daily life.  I want every woman in my life to have the profound opportunity to uncover and develop her sensual, sexual radiance while being witnessed by her sisters, and this is what the Women Healing Women series offers.” Kelly Cole, Sedona, AZ

Early Bird Price: $247 ends January 31. Thereafter $297.

Shamanic Breathwork Changes Lives

Here is a note one participant posted after the workshop. Keith wrote: “Since I went to an all day Shamanic Breathwork class with John Livingston and Crystal Dawn I can now breathe so much amazingly more – so amazing!”

On Saturday, October 29, 2011, ten people showed up in Sedona for a day of Shamanic Breathwork with Crystal Dawn Morris and John Livingston, Shamanic Breathwork Facilitators. It was a powerful day of healing, transformation and empowerment. The morning began with an introduction to the Shamanic breathwork process. SBW is a journey through the energy centers of the body, which are called chakras. It uses circular breathing to activate and move energy through the body until” you are surprised.” Once you enter into an experience the breathing is no longer focused on. The circular breathing is returned to whenever it is needed.

The benefits are SBW are numerous including: clearing blocked energy, physical healing, life review, soul return, increased vitality, insight into your life purpose, healing of family legacy issues, re-birthing, increased self-acceptance and compassion for others.

We most commonly work  in dyads with one person journeying while the other person is present to witness and support their process.  Shamanic Breathwork  is done to powerful music that takes you on a journey through the chakras and activates each person’s “inner shaman.”

After the first round is complete, those who journeyed have an opportunity to create a mandala that reflects their experience in some way. Images are a wonderful way to record what happened without activating the rational mind. Journalling may also be done alone or in dyads.We then took a lunch break.

After lunch, the dyads reversed roles and the process was repeated using different music. Following the afternoon art process we took a break. We then broke up into two process groups. Processing a SBW journey is much like processing a dream. Information may come to us in a variety of ways- literally, metaphorically, physically, via the senses and spiritually.  Processing allows each person time to share their experience and their mandala with the group. If they want it feedback is given. This is when we “mine the gold” of our process. Often, ah-ha moments occur that clarify what occurred and help to integrate the information received. This can be a bonding experience.

We close the day by coming back together as a circle.  We share from our hearts and offer gratitude for the gifts we have received, for our life  breath.

Blessings on all my relations.

Tantra Tip of the Day- Transforming the Shadow into an Ally

The Shadow is the disowned parts of our selves. They may be gods, fears or demons, things we worship or things we fear. When we are able to transform our shadow into an ally we can access a vast amount of energy that can then be used in positive ways in our lives.

I have been fascinated by the power of reclaiming the shadow for many years. Shortly after 9/11/2000, I spent several months working both personally and globally healing the shadow that was being projected in the media as an, us and a them. This work changed my life, teaching me tolerance, compassion and self-acceptance.

I recently discovered a great book that shares a healing method that has many of the qualities I discovered as I was doing this work. I was surprised to learn that it is based on an ancient Buddhist practice called Chod. The book is called Feeding Your Demons by Tsultrim Allione. She has taken the essence of the Chod practice and simplified it for our modern secular culture. She has developed a simple 5 step process that allows you to explore a god or demon, as she calls them, by communicate with it, embodying it and feeding it what it needs to be healed and transformed. I highly recommend this book. Sounds True has an audio version called Cutting Through Fear, in which she explains the process and also guides you through it.
