If you are ready to transform your life, this experiential training is for you!


SPIRITUAL… SEXUAL… SHAMANIC… each of these three areas alone carries enormous potential for liberation, freedom, love, and joy, as well as charge for shadow and misuse of power.

This life changing transformational workshop focuses on clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt and fear related to sexuality and authenticity. The deeper transformation comes from reconnecting to your personal power. We accomplish this through multiple pathways of healing: guided visualization, emotional release, shamanic initiations, energy tracking and conscious touch are just a few of the practices used to dive deep into the inner realms. In exploring sexuality, we create a fast path to encountering the challenges and gifts of fully owning our own power.

You will learn to fully integrate your masculine and inner feminine archetypes, hence opening doors to a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete.

This workshop unfolds within a powerful group process based on unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this workshop, you will feel more open, relaxed and present and be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.

No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend this retreat. This event is about expanding beyond your comfort zone, while honoring your healthy boundaries.

Nudity and safe intimate touch are a part of this training, however, you are always at choice and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. Individuals and couples of any sexual preference are welcome to attend.

Thousands of people on 5 continents in over 40 countries have attended ISTA trainings over the past 10 years. Many have been radically changed by uncovering reactive patterns and transforming them into conscious and more loving ways of being. 

Please note! This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space. ISTA is a mystery school and approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process.


In Level 1 (SSSEx), a team of skilled Temple Arts Faculty will share, inspire, guide and support you to bring light to the shadows where your power awaits to be reclaimed.

You will receive information, guidance and lots of experiential practice around: self-love, boundaries and consent, emotional release, voice dialogue, shamanic tools, shadow work, the ability to manifest, accessing your inner gender opposite, conscious communication, transformational breathwork, and ancient rituals of healing/initiation and powerful sexual clearing/activation processes.


This training is for EVERYONE. It’s open to ALL who are called. The ISTA experience has reached people in all of their diversity. People aged 18 to 80 have participated in Level 1 trainings. They come from many different backgrounds, professions, religions, spiritual beliefs, races and nationalities.

People from various sexual/relational paths including celibacy, monogamy, and polyamory are also drawn to ISTA. As are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

Couples, individuals and relationship groups of any formation are welcome.

The practices offered in this training are designed to touch us deeply at the core of our lives as an embodied being. No prior knowledge of or experience in shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary.
