Reawakening sexuality and freedom in Ireland
In Ireland, the interaction of Pagan Celtic Druidic traditions and Christian religion has brought challenges on many levels, specifically in the areas of sexuality, emotion and the body. When Christianity arrived, most of what lay before was eradicated. St. Patrick drove the Snakes out of Ireland, sexuality was repressed, Masculine silenced Feminine. Yet, Ireland kept its unique and irrepressible sense of humour, celebration of life and awareness of the hidden springs of nature.
The ingrained cultural guilt, shame and fear are now fading away as they no longer suit our maturing global consciousness. We are witnessing the beginning of peace between the Masculine/Feminine aspects of the self, thus freeing our ability to create the health, abundance and rewarding relationships, which are our birthright.
The International School of Temple Arts’ intention is to help people develop and strengthen their ability to support themselves and all humanity in this evolution of consciousness. ISTA teaches the tools and offers support for reclaiming sexuality, activating the emotional body and honouring of all levels of being. These tools involve enhancing awareness, respecting individual boundaries and desires, and taking personal responsibility for our emotions and reactions.
Ireland increasingly understands the deep importance and value of integration and harmonisation of two opposing parts of itself. People are becoming free to experience and explore authentic intimacy, safety and sexual wholeness for a life of ease and abundant love.
