TEACHERS

SSSEx (level 1) & SSSIn (Level 2) SEPTember 2019

REX McCann

Lead facilitator

Lead facilitator on ISTA SSSEx & SSSIn (Level 1 & 2) in September 2019, Rex McCann, a native New Zealander with a global heart, has been leading transformational programmes with men and women for 25 years. Founder of Essentially Men, www.essentiallymen.net the ground breaking mens work of Aotearoa New Zealand, co-founder of the Heart Politics Gatherings and author of Fatherless Sons (Harper Collins) and On Their Own (Finch) he is trained in group work, psychodrama, expressive therapies, co counselling and has a masters in Social Ecology. His experience has been honed from working extensively with groups in all kinds of settings from the wilderness to corporations, prisons to ashrams, and anywhere in the community people are showing up for wisdom. Over his life he has explored diverse mystery traditions, shamanistic practices and spiritual enquiry. His outer world expressions have been diverse - from a young hunter living in the wilderness, to activism, street theatre, trainer, community catalyst and group leadership. He has a solid reputation for leading potent rites of passage and known for his wise and playful style and ability to hold people with love while they shed their skin.

Rex has stopped trying to improve himself... instead he has turned to loving the life force that is living him, which includes embodying the joy and transformative power of sexuality. He has moved into teaching with ISTA because his delight is to share community with kindred souls on this journey of loving life and he is drawn to contribute to the powerful transmission and embodied teachings that are evolving here. 

Co facilitator

Co facilitator on ISTA SSSin (Level 2) in September 2019, Janine spent a large part of her life on an ascendent spiritual path. When she finally listened to her soul crying out, beyond a place she could understand, she let go of her fear stories, and opened to the mystery of the dark and the path of descent. Descent into the body, into the dark recesses of her womb and into the earth. Integrating the dark has brought her home to herself.

Janine has a passion for the feminine mysteries, the holy dark and the path of the mystic. She works with the  womb as the source of feminine power, and a portal to the earth and cosmic wombs. She experiences the womb as the mystery, the web of life, infinite love and the authentic feminine voice, holding codes, that when activated, show us the way home, to ourselves and to the beloved.

A few years ago Janine founded Red Earth Temple, a living temple of activated wild land. The land is her teacher, her muse and co creator. The acres of Red Earth, combined with the womb canyon thru the centre, and the Wild Innocence of the untamed bush, create a potent shamanic field for deep immersion, ritual and session work.

Janine offers a transformational space and supports people to bring the polarities of masculine, feminine, light and dark into consciousness and embodiment, so they can live a more integrated life from the heart centre and follow the ecstatic current that emanates from that place.

She offers Shamanic Womb Journeys, Immersion days, private sessions, facilitates as lead faculty, and serves on Governance at International School of Temple Arts. She also offers other workshops as they emerge.

Janine draws on over 25 years experience in wholistic health as a practitioner, presenter and facilitator as well as the many mentors, guides, teachers and experiences that she has been gifted on her life’s path.

STEPHANIE PHILLIPS

Co facilitator

Inspiration, Alchemy, Transformation

Co facilitator on ISTA SSSEx (Level 1) in September 2019, Stephanie initiates groups with Tantric and shamanic practices, pattern reframing and emotional release work. This is the one place where your arousal and sexual power is welcome and celebrated, as an integral part of your transformation. She GOES there, to awaken a higher resonance and your open-hearted power! She applies modalities of self awareness including Mindfulness, Gestalt therapy, movement meditation, dance expression, humanistic psychology, NLP, shadow work, conscious sexuality and the healing arts.

No map, no compass

Stephanie's led people on the stage, in the boardroom, at the retreat, down the mountain and from the podium. She's held people through their baptism of fire, through the shedding and the chaos, and journeyed with them to the safe haven on the other side.

Her bodywork mastery was honed from private practice in Remedial massage, Polarity therapy, Reiki, de-armouring, and Reflexology. Her Shamanic Dakini emerged after an accident disabled her hand, and her path descended into journeying with shadow.

From tutus to tantra

Her background is Classical / Contemporary Dance, a Bachelor of Education, the Fitness industry, the Health and Wellness sector, executive coaching, and crafting transformational mentoring programs through the nineties and noughties.

Bringing back orgasmic flow

In recent years Stephanie has facilitated Tantra workshops and training intensives, retreats and courses across Australia and beyond, in the field of sexuality and consciousness.  Her accumulated resources are shared in her Body Whisperer Experience courses. She's been called on for space clearing rituals, full moon ceremonies, business forums and inner-child healings. Seekers consistently describe her as a gifted energetic bodyworker. She's been a facilitator and faculty with ISTA since 2015.

Co facilitator

Co facilitator on ISTA SSSEx (Level 1) in September 2019, a teacher of sacred sexuality, Daka and guide for esoteric exploration and meditation, Shachar was trained around the world with ISTA (International Schools of Temple Arts). In 2010 he founded the organization "Less is More" which teaches businesses and organizations how to streamline thought processes and increase focus and productivity.  

 

Shachar went on to create a coffee chain in the Balkans. Realizing that he was not discovering the answers he searched for, he went on a journey to discover who he really is. In 2010, Shachar travelled to Guatemala where he spent 2 years studying at The Pyramids Del Ka, an Egyptian mystery school specializing in lucid dreaming, meditation, and Kabbalah studies.  During this exploration he experienced long periods of isolation and undertook intensive silent retreats of 40 and x days where he discovered the importance of direct connection to our life force.

 

Shachar invites you to expand your consciousness and tread the authentic heart's path that exists in each of us. Experience how to connect our Kundalini (sexual energy, Shakti) with the Cosmos (presence, Shiva) in our heart space, releasing old patterns that do not serve us and connecting to our essence that dwells beyond our stories. Find the simplicity and beauty that awaits in the now
