SPIRITUAL SEXUAL SHAMANIC EXPERIENCE (SSSEX) LEVEL 1 Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience - SSSEx Sept, 21st - 27th @ Awakeland Portugal istaportugal.com This life changing transformational intensive focuses on allowing, through clear consciousness, the integration of all aspects of our Being; mind, body, sexuality, emotions and spirit. The deep transformation comes through reconnecting with our personal power by clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt and fear related to our sexuality and authenticity. Spiritual... Sexual ....Shamanic ... each of these three areas carry enormous potential for liberation, freedom, love and joy. But they can also have a shadow and represent misuse of power. A team of skilled Temple Arts Faculty will share, inspire, guide and support you to bring light to the shadows where your power awaits to be reclaimed. You will receive information, guidance and lots of experiential practice around self love, boundaries, consent, emotional release, voice dialogue, neurological reprogramming, shamanic tools, owning one’s desires, the ability to manifest, accessing and speaking from your contra-sexual self (i.e gender opposite), conscious communication, ancient rituals of healing/initiation and powerful sexual clearing/activation processes. This intensive is a well-designed and well-honed program that unfolds within a powerful group process based on safety, trust, unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of the week, you will feel more in touch with your body, more aliveness and presence, more aware of your patterns and how to change them, more awareness of your emotions and how to hold them, lighter and perhaps more relaxed. You will be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.
