What is ISTA?
The vision of ISTA is to expand consciousness and sexuality across the globe. We are a movement that brings a knowledge base and provides resources to everyone, especially practitioners and guides to enhance their skillsets in all aspects of life mastery. We do this in the form of bringing conferences, events, and trainings to all regions, tapping into the pulse of each culture thereby becoming the thread, or ribbon of intention, connecting these experts around the world. We do this by working with life force energy, the beginning, middle and end of everything. We as humans connect the spirit from above, through our bodies as conduits, to earth below, and in this embodiment of all that is, can experience the essence of universal love.
We live at a unique and critical time on earth. At the same time as we are faced with incredible challenges to the survival of the diversity of life and consciousness on our planet we are experiencing an incredible awakening of human potential. Not only are new energies emerging but for the first time in history, the wisdom heritage of all our cultures and traditions is available for integration just as it is most needed.
There have always been temples and mystery schools on earth where the deep teachings on sexual and spiritual wisdom were practiced, developed and taught. These centers were often the hidden cause for the advancement of civilisations. Now we have a global civilisation and these temples are once again emerging into the light, blossoming like chakras and nadi points as the light body of earth is awakened and energised.
The International School of Temple Arts is committed to raising awareness in sexuality & consciousness across the globe to:
1. grow community with a peer-to-peer network
2. offer conferences and trainings in all aspects of business to practitioners and teachers
3. provide resources in the form of business tools and collaborations for the emergence of Temples.

LEVEL 1 SSSEX EXPERIENCE – SPIRITUAL, SEXUAL, SHAMANIC
Each of these three areas alone carry enormous charge for shadow and misuse of power as well as potential for liberation, freedom, love and joy.
This week provides the essential teachings and experiences that restore to us the type of education we should have had around our sexuality, our emotions and our relationships with the masculine and feminine.
Central to this are presence, awareness, personal empowerment, emotional intelligence, sexual wholeness, and a lifestyle which honours the interconnectedness of all things. Acknowledging and embracing one’s shadow (or un-integrated psychological material) is the cornerstone of this work.
This provides for the experience of being truly alive and integrated. Together, integrated, we begin to see what it means to be awake, empowered, in community and in service as love in the world.
Activities include hands on practice and coaching around the use and implementation of 7 incredible tools including emotional release, aspecting, voice dialogue, neurological reprogramming, exploration into ethics and boundaries and introduction of rituals of initiation.
This powerful 7 days is a training for life and love and is for EVERYONE; practitioners, would-be practitioners and anyone who desires to take their personal empowerment to another level and to deepen their abilities of Self Mastery.
It’s aimed at men and women who are dedicated to the ongoing practice of evolving consciousness and deeper embodiment and who support others on this path. Individuals and couples of any sexual preference are welcome to attend.
No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend this retreat. This event is about expanding beyond your comfort zone, while honouring your healthy boundaries.
Nudity and intimate touch are optional parts of this training. The cornerstone of this work is about consent, developing healthy boundaries and communication. You are always at choice and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. If it is your truth, it is possible to complete the entire training experience without touching another person or taking your clothes off.
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, present and be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.
Please note that there are three ISTA levels.
In Tasmania we are currently only holding ISTA Level 1 trainings.
