"WE HAVE NOT COME HERE TO TAKE PRISONERS..."
...but to surrender ever more deeply to freedom and joy."(Hafiz)
If you feel you are ready for ISTA Level 3, then apply to join us in Barcelona, Spain in an amazing venue embedded in soft rolling vinyards under the endless blue skies of southern Europe. Here you will be given just the right circumstances to dive deep into your own empowerment in order to hold point for the emerging culture.
LEVEL 3 - SSSeed
YOUR TIME TO STEP UP!
This training is for those who have completed SSSex THE EXPERIENCE and SSSin THE INITIATION. Level 1 was the education you didn’t get when you were young. Level 2 was the training you didn’t go home from, where you sourced yourself from the void and stayed living from your centre. Level 3 (SSSeed) asks the question - Can you hold your centre, be in your core and hold the point for love when everything is spinning and turning to chaos around you? It is about strengthening and expanding your capacity to hold point for groups, whether as facilitator, organizer, community member or expressing leadership in your any endeavor in your life.
Level 3 highlights each person's essential gifts and challenges as they seed their work in the world. Part of this may be facing disillusionment about how you think things should be done by others, letting go expectations of outcome, letting go of control, rigidity, idealism, perfection, dogma and discovering your own gifts are the solution to what you see is missing in the world.
Rituals involve the relationship between power and surrender, transformation around relationship with money and group initiation.
PROPAGATE A CULTURE
One of the reasons the model of Burning Man is so successful is that it propagates a culture. People want to participate because they sense it is sourced from a different 'space' and they are encouraged to show their own initiative.
What if we saw ISTA as a virtual global 'Playa'. We are building an upside down city and the foundation on which we are building is our connection to source.
The stronger that connection grows the more land we have on which to build and the more people we attract to come play and bring their gifts. The success of our Level 3 (SSSeed) has not come from techniques or skills, but from extending our culture - inviting others into a way of living and being present with each other.
Each time a training or conference takes place a vortex of energy descends from the foundation of ISTA. For a week a temple of the new civilization stands and then is reabsorbed into the inner landscape. We are like real estate developers but our real estate is primarily that of embodied life force energy. This is a different approach from most builders of temples. They buy land, create designs, build structures, create mission statements and then draw community together to enact shared visions.
The real temples and the temple arts already exist in energetic realms - they do not need to be created from the bottom up but precipitated from the top down. And they are a global phenomena rather than a local one - which means they are emergent all at once over the whole planet. So if we continually use our resources to bring these vortexes down they eventually will become stable enough to stay in manifestation and naturally draw to themselves the people and resources they need to grow the outer forms.
The old way is to build lightning rods and wait for the thunderstorm. When we propagate culture we are the lightning itself and we strike wherever someone or some group are willing to stand up and receive in sovereignty, synergy and sacredness.
