Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Initiation - SSSin Sept, 29th - Oct, 5@ Awakeland Portugal istaportugal.com 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. It gives 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.
