The ISTA (International School of Temple Arts) NZ Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experiential Training will be over Easter itself this year  (Monday April 14th until April 21st, Easter Monday) - with plenty of advance notice to arrange the extra days off!

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. Together, integrated, we begin to see what it means to be awake, empowered, in community and in service as love in the world.

This powerful 7 day training is coming back to New Zealand for the 4th year in a row...we are so blessed. It 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. 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 training is 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. 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.

Some people take this training for their own personal enrichment while others are interested in the profession of Sacred Sexual Practitioner or Educator. Join with other motivated individuals from a diverse background of experiences, including computer techs, massage therapists, counsellors, artists, healers, entrepreneurs, and students, to create an intensely-satisfying learning journey, that will significantly impact your personal life and professional style.

This revolutionary Life empowerment course supports us to masterfully direct our primal and sexual nature so that we more deeply embody a fully integrated, respectful and vibrant relationship with ourselves and others. Attendees include those from the various spiritual/sexual paths of celibacy, monogamy, and polyamory. The entire course is designed to support all individuals to find, feel, claim, and express their highest Life expression. If it is your truth, It is possible to complete the entire training/experience without touching another person. How do we fully take back our power as well as support others to live free? The ISTA facilitators are looking forward to meeting you in Love, Power, and Freedom.

"This training was a portal into sacred sexuality...I am extremely grateful for the amount of abundance this has created in my life...It has given me a platform for an ongoing freedom which has enriched my life beyond my wildest dreams." - GS

"These people are actually embodying what all the others are only talking about...This is the deepest, purest, most profound work of its kind I know of. Gentle, yet powerful and compelling...whole, present, real." - RR

"I have been through some of the best therapeutic programs available on the planet and my experience with [ISTA] leaves no close second place. I am really sold on it being great and look forward to going deeper with it." - DC

“I cannot recommend it highly enough! It's a powerful experience and a rare opportunity for folk to step into their power and address old wounds which hold us back from living with joy and freedom. There is nothing else which gives this opportunity for self-empowerment and growth. It addresses core issues around sexuality which are integral to our whole being. It's well-structured, professionally managed, and hugely transformational” - JB
