Morgan Allis #16 | Transformation of Trauma & Embracing the Shadows

Morgan Allis #16 | Transformation of Trauma & Embracing the Shadows

February 28, 2021

When we have love and truth, that’s where the magic happens. To me, truth is the line back into my soul. It can always bring me home, when I wanted to come back home I needed a place where I could tell the truth. This conversation is so vibrant for me and I love how Morgan transparently shares her life story from drop out party kid, experiencing the shadows in her unique way through to an awakened ambassador of love. I appreciate how she has overcome her traumatic life experiences and transmuted herself and life into being in service to that which is greater than the individual I.

Yasmin De Giorgio #15 | Conscious Business As Sadhana

February 20, 2021

Sadhana is a form of intense spiritual practice, where you commit to a very disciplined routine for a set number of days. You cannot lead from love if you have not learned to manage your ego. Join me with my great friend Yasmin, a serial entrepreneur who launched 3 brands in the health and wellness space within 5 years. We dive deep in this awesome dialogue. From Business as a spiritual practice, going within for business success, overcoming adversity, facing the tyrants we all have within us, wholearcy, wholeness, attachment, duality, ego management, leadership, community, meditation and how to access inner peace.
"Business is a way of continuing my sadhana. It is a way that each day I can offer myself to something greater than myself. Just like in meditation sadhana, some days it comes easily and joyfully and other days you have to push and labour your way through. I believe that business should reflect our genuine stewardship responsibilities not only to our company and human shareholders, but to the larger human community and our greatest shareholder, nature itself. I feel that we need to rise up to face the real challenge of the global environmental crises and transform ourselves into better people in the process."
"I truly believe that it is our inner strength and inner wisdom that is the source of our success, materially and beyond. To do anything with meaning, we first need to experience the meaningful. That generally doesn’t come by playing it safe, it comes from ‘being in the arena’, from opening yourself to life and being its humble student. Go within for business success. One of my favourite quotes is ‘ To face the multiple crises that confront the world not only must everything we do change but so must each and everyone of us from the inside’. This quote was written with the environmental crises in mind and its beautiful for that but it’s also true for our own personal crises, any crises that we face it’s not a question of an outside solution, it’s all about how can we step in to a greater level of potential, how can we transform to raise and meet that crises."
"The role and function of any leader is to make sure the community is thriving." More from Yasmin and Sanya Malta

Erick Tejas #14 | From The Ghettos Of Havana To The Bliss Of Bali

February 13, 2021
I believe we are already perfect, in all our beautiful imperfections. "It’s precisely those things we have some resistance to that other people often love most about ourself. Love has no price or condition. It’s simply a mutual gift from one heart to another." I love these words from my great friend Epic Erick.

A little backstory from Erick:
I was born the year John Lennon was shot. In an island where people are forbidden to leave, unless the government approves of it. I managed to leave it 20 years later. I grew up in a very emotionally turbulent environment. Divorced parents, the ghetto of Havana, terrible partners making my mom’s life even more difficult. I remember some time in my late teenage years thinking to myself, when was the next bad thing going to strike. Because it had been far longer than I was accustomed to, without seeing anything terribly unpleasant manifest in my reality.
Human suffering has always been a topic in my mind. Why we behave so bad sometimes, or make really awful choices, making life much worse than it should be, for ourself and others. I’ve dedicated my whole life to inquiring these questions. All I have is my life, my heart, my intuition, my love, to be of service to you. To the World.

Ohad Pele #13 | Sacred Sexuality, Sovereignty, Love & Freedom

Ohad Pele #13 | Sacred Sexuality, Sovereignty, Love & Freedom

February 7, 2021

Sacred Sexuality Is A Living Temple & A Secret Gate To Divine Realms. “Sexuality is a secret gate to the Divine realms that is still unrecognised by most of humanity. In ancient Temples, sexuality was practiced as a key to open portals into other dimensions, but this knowledge was mostly forgotten. Sacred Sexuality is a living temple, where we can offer our egos on the altar, expand our consciousness, download visions, create magic, heal traumas and surrender deeply to Love itself”. 

I had the pleasure of meeting Pele when attending Ista 1&2 sexual shamanic retreats. During the training, I wanted to capture the three facilitators to bring their inspiring visions, wisdom and intentions to you all you.

Pele, a lead faculty in ISTA, has been teaching Kabbalah, Sacred Sexuality and Conscious Relating for more than 30 years. His life partner Dawn Cherie is a lead faculty in ISTA as well and many times they lead workshops together. Coming from a background of being a traditional Kabbalist Rabbi in Jerusalem, as well as an academic scholar and a community leader he is well known as one of the most influencing and radical spiritual teachers in Israel.
 Pele is also the author of the historical fiction "Kedesha - A timeless tale of a Love Priestess", a page turner that exposes the hidden conspiracy in ancient Jerusalem that had lead to the destruction of the Goddess Temples and formation of monotheistic text based religions. He also wrote a book about Lilith – the Wild-Dark Feminine Force, a revolutionary research on the sacred aspect of Lilith, which holds the secrets of healing human sexuality. In another book he explores the erotic concepts behind the ancient Temple of Jerusalem and the way this knowledge was used for meditations in the ancient Jewish mystery school of the Merkava.
 Before joining ISTA Pele was heading “Neviah – the Hebraic Academy of Universal Spirit” in Tel Aviv. Pele and Dawn are life partners since 2002 and co-founders of KabaLove — the school of Love in Kabbala. Pele is an artist, photographer and a song writer. His first album “Something out of Chaos” includes the Tantric song Mikdash that is dedicated to Yoni-Gazing rituals. His second album“Cosmic Snake” includes the songs “Captain Crazy” (lyrics by Bruce Lyon) and the infamous “Cosmic Snake”. More from Ohad Pele:

Aurika Valan #9 | Awaken Your Sexuality & Claim Your Space In The World

Aurika Valan #9 | Awaken Your Sexuality & Claim Your Space In The World

January 10, 2021

Becoming an intimacy coach wasn't exactly on my "when I grow up I wanna be..." list. Meet my close friend Aurika as we transparently dive into the story of her transformation into celebrating all of her wild nature and supporting and educating women to awaken their sexuality.  "Sexuality is not just about pleasure. Its about our totality. One day I decided to go celibate. For a month. You may be laughing… But the story was not so funny as I was self-pleasuring myself to sleep most nights during the years when I suffered from insomnia – a quick-fix clitoral orgasm would help me fall asleep. During that month I experienced the potency of the sexual energy building up in my lower energy centres and I literally didn’t know what to do with myself—it wasn't even pleasant! I was lucky enough to be surrounded by awakened people who taught me how to circulate this energy by doing breathwork. This is when I truly discovered the power of conscious sexuality – like Columbus "discovering" the South American lands which had been always there… After years of searching for love externally I came back home – to the temple of my body. This sparked a fire in me that has been fuelling my journey ever since. So I began claiming my space in the world by intentionally awakening my sexuality." More from Aurika Valan

Chris Assaad #8 | This Is Our Moment, Time We’ve Been Waiting For

August 2, 2020

Come back into your heart, how much we can love is the only thing that we can change. "During these times of great planetary change and uncertainty, the many ways in which humanity is divided are becoming undeniable and the need for unity, harmony, and synergistic co-creation are evermore apparent. As we collectively lean deeper into this significant moment in history and look for a path forward, an ancient, timeless modality for catalyzing evolution and supporting healing is being rediscovered and renewed. As outdated societal norms, systems, and structures are crumbling—and those in positions of power, once entrusted to lead, are being more highly scrutinized—a new wave of rebel leadership is emerging to support the movement towards a more life-affirming, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable future." ~ CA
