Costa Rica Level 2 Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Initiation

Nov 26 – Dec 2, 2019



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 practice with some of the tools and techniques taught and provides an alchemical container for transformation through group practice, 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.

Love // Power // Presence


The Sexual Initiation The rituals 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 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.

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.

Three highly skilled ISTA Lead faculty will teach, share, inspire, guide and bring light to the darkness in a serene and private retreat location: Lead Facilitator: Bruce Lyon Facilitator: Frank Mondeose Facilitator: Jasmeen Hana Level 2

SSSin is not so much a training that provides tools and techniques but an experience that transforms the self working with those tools and techniques. It is a calling forth of the love, power and presence in the essential divinity of each person. This is the source of the healing power of the spiritual, sexual shaman and it is what forms the core of the unique gift each of us has to offer the world.

Jasmeen Hana

Planetary mid-wife assisting the birth of heaven on earth. Jasmeen has been exploring the ancient temple arts from a young age.

Her upbringing in Egypt and furthered studies and explorations in India have created a foundation based on the ancient mysteries and arts within the influence of Belly dance, yoga and deep meditations as well as the ancient Egyptian embodiment codes. Her rigid religious upbringing in the islamic traditions has offered her a bases in religious mythology, the verse and the symbolism.

Her schooling commenced in London and Cairo, having completed a Middlesex University degree in Mass communications and Sociology by the age of 21.

At the age of 23 the journey took her to India where she deepened deeply in Viappassna Meditation, committing over 4 years to long silent retreats over the course of her travels as well as offering selfless service. In this time she studied with a Monk in Varanasi – india, the science of the body, through the science of Ayurveda, massage training as well as Pancha karma. Her committed practice of Kundalini yoga over the years encouraged a Yoga diploma completed in Hannover Germany and furthered studies in Tantra in different institutions. In the midst of the sciences of body the deep desire to express creatively led Jasmeen to Berlin for the next three years at the age of 26. There she studied at a classical theatre school the art of drama. Combining theater with Tantra the foundation of the observer had been established in earlier years,led to a fascination in the art of embodiment.

Her express and release work inspired her and at the age of 28 she did her first ISTA level one which blew her away. Her own style of session work was designed as a tantric practitioner, inspired by the ancient priestesses of India and Egypt.

She has supported hundreds in their journey of re-connecting with their sensual- sexual bodies. Currently focusing on the ancient egyptian kundalini healing methods to connect the root with the heart and crown. Her calling to explore deeper the shamanic roots of her being, practice and offering made her leave Berlin and return home to Egypt where she has been laying foundations for current and future collaborations on the sacred land.

Her vision is to bring back the ancient Egyptian universal blueprints of living life as simply as possible and as God like as purpose. Allowing heaven to resurrect on Earth through the loving remembrance of all those who choose to live life in ease and grace. Hence restoring the ancient temple Arts to be accessed by everyone as a simple way of life, rich and abundant in pleasure, sensuality and joy.

She has also journeyed deep with the plant medicines in the remote jungles of Peru, being led by the local Peruvian grandmother shamans. This has inspired her calling to bring back the sexual shamanic practices of womb clearing- releasing deep traumas in the base of the body. Her own experience of trauma in her upbringing has opened her heart to her purpose. To deliver ritual and ceremony as core healing modalities on a very deep cellular level.

A passionate dancer, writer, performer and painter…. she never stops to explore the worlds within worlds. Her love for ISTA and all it delivers is now a platform for sharing her experiences over the years and allowing her to deepen in her teaching and facilitation expertise. “Sacred Sexual healing has been a great transformer for embodying the dream”, says Jasmeen. ” It is the key to absolute liberation in discovering, witnessing and dancing with the inner Lover”. In guiding individuals. couples and groups to their own inner source of Love and ” true wild nature” , a vision of Heaven on earth can be fulfilled, when each being remembers their own power and strength of creation and co-creation. Shamanism , natural lifestyle, home, the nuturing, organic foods and children are all parts of her desires and she embraces home, the earth and lovers, poetry of life as a vehicle to deep fulfillment. Her vision of a living Temple, a community where beings can thrive together in co-creation of magic, creativity and love inspire her days and her way.

Jasmeen offers private sessions and events strengthening the inner wild nature and discovering ones own true authentic Voice. She is currently offering week long Isis Emersion retreats, blue lotus ceremonies and facitating with ISTA.


“The powerful reverberations from the Conference of Sexuality and Consciousness continue to be felt in my life. Thank you for everything it took to create the powerful and playful conference space. You are truly serving so many at the highest level.”

~ Cheryl

“This particular training really brought me to a place of seeing all of myself and all of others. Not only the pretty love and light stuff, but also those things we dont usually want to see and accept in ourselves and the world. It was a week of being real and raw, feeling all of our feelings.

How deep down the rabbit hole do you want to go? ”

~ Jason Bonder

“This kind of training helps to open you up you who you really are. To help you understand yourself in ways you have always wished you could but you werent sure how.

I believe from the bottom of my heart that the sacredness of this beautiful trainng will expand you in every way imaginable. The dancing, meditations, emotional release, rutuals that are done show you the beauty in the human body, the realness, the rawness of who we really are. The personal growth I have experienced is absolutely incredible.

~ Leah Thompson

What I realised from this training is that we all are, at the core of our being, our natural state – LOVE, ABUNDANCE, BEAUTY, TRUTH, FREE- its just somewhere along the way someone or some fucked up experience told us otherwise and we forgot. So we need another earth angel to remind us of our true nature, I recently forgot some of my true nature and ISTA training held a beautiful safe container to unleash and remind me of my true divine nature. A deep shamanic spiritual experience. Permission to say YES to who you are, all of you.

~ Nadia Ominski

This training was a transmission of freedom and love, freedom and love, freedom and love. Its not about what society knows as sex or really about sex. The work is around unveiling each and every person to be the greatest, most loving, most conscious and most free person they can be and then building a community that supports everyone to do that. Its about finding your freedom. Its about connecting with your own inner wisdom save of which is stored in your cellular being and releasing that. It offers amazing simple clarity around our sounds and triggers and shadow. How to see them, how to be free to bring love to those parts of ourselves. It allows us to love our complete being so we can be free. Most importantly its not in your head. Its about embodiement, deep embodiement.

Simple wisdom that is profound, life changing, Its an amazing collection of bits and pieces of gold and the the alchemy creates much more than the sum of those components. It has integrity. Each facilitator is beyond reproach. Deep Deep respect to each of you.

~ Chris Glover, Perth
