Spiritual, Sexual, Shamanic
Each of these areas carries enormous potential for
freedom, love, and joy,
as well as for healing & integrating our golden and painful shadow aspects.
As we come to know all these aspects, we begin to see what it means to be awake, empowered, in a community, and service as love in the world.
What is ISTA?
ISTA stands for the International School of Temple Arts, an international mystery school that is reviving the temple arts and offering spiritual transmission through sexual shamanism. All around the world, ISTA offers 1-week seminars, conferences, and festivals dedicated to healing and connection of consciousness, emotions, and sexuality and creating a global network of communities.
Our vision is a world where humans have a peaceful, delightful, shameless, fearless, and loving relationship with their own bodies, sexuality, emotions, hearts, minds, and spirit.
In ISTA the a.b.c. steps are about every individual learning to discern their own healthy boundaries. Learning how to communicate clearly what they want and what they do not want to experience. Healthy sexuality grows in a culture of empowered beings.
What is ISTA Level 1 training?
The Level 1 training is an eight-day intensive seminar that takes place all over the world and focuses on clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt, and fear related to sexuality and authenticity.
The more profound transformation comes from reconnecting to your inner power. In exploring sexuality, we create a fast path to encountering the challenges and gifts of fully owning our power.
A team of skilled Temple Arts faculty will share, inspire, guide and support you to bring light to the shadows where your power awaits for you to claim them.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TRAINING?
The transformation is supported through multiple pathways using the best of the ancient temple arts including the wisdom of
Tantra, Taoism, and different traditions of Shamanism. We add to this modern-day techniques NLP, bioenergetics, guided visualization, emotional release and activation tools, and conscious touch/ consent skills.

"Imagine the conduit to connect with the part of yourself that you’ve never been allowed to touch. Whole, warm, soft, dance. Touch your passion for real. Talk about generosity. Live shame-free."
This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on unconditional love, intimacy, and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this event, you will feel more open, relaxed and present and be more in touch with the effortless flow of life, no matter how it may appear.
