The International School of Temple Arts (ISTA) is committed to raising consciousness and sexuality education around the globe. The most ignored, denied, misunderstood or bypassed area of spiritual exploration is the territory around sex and emotion. ISTA's trainings are life-changing seminars promoting the deep healing of our core wounds and our connection to our source of our sexuality and primal nature. These workshops are for all people of any sexual orientation or gender identity, whether monogamous, polyamorous or celibate. All adults are welcome.
Would you like to address the issues that are still blocking you and to access more of your personal power?
Are you completely without fear, guilt or shame?
These feelings can be strong inhibitors to our essential life force energy.The underlying messages we received culturally and in childhood around our sexuality and also our spirituality, particularly around what is sacred can affect our ability to be intimate. Truly intimate.
This retreat 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; exploring sexuality is a fast path to encountering our own power challenges and gifts. This is done through multiple pathways using the best of the ancient temple arts including, but not limited to:
We use these and other practices to dive deep into the inner realms of our being. The inner masculine and inner feminine archetypes are explored because when they are fully integrated a door opens to a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete.
The three skilled Temple Arts Facilitators, Laurie Handlers, Buddhi Dana and Frank Mondeose 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, and learn to work with neurological reprogramming, and with shamanic energy, owning one’s desires and the ability to manifest.
This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on safety, trust, unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising.
