<<<The invitation>>>

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. If you are ready to transform your life, this experiential 7-day event is for you.If you are ready to transform your life, this experiential 7- day training is for you. Thousands of people on 5 continents have attended the International School of Temple Arts (ISTA) training over the past 10 years and have been radically changed for the better by uncovering reactive patterns and transforming them into conscious ways of being.

This powerful training is being held for the second time in Goa, India. You are invited to unfold your potential with international facilitators Elaine Young, Dhyan Niten & Binoy Milton D'souza.

<<<How do you know the training is transformational & universal? >>>

Thousands of people have gone through this training worldwide, the individuals cover a wide age range from 18 to 80, varied backgrounds, all sexual orientations, those who are gender fluid or trans, differing professions from students, artists, surgeons, people from many different religions, races and nationalities. As this week-long is a journey through life's core experiences and wounds, it is universal. It touches and can affect individuals of any age, background, race etc, if you choose to allow and if you are open to receive the wisdom and gifts.

<<<What is the training about?>>>

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 Tantra, Taoist and Shamanic traditions and adding to this more modern day NLP, bio-energetics, guided visualization, emotional release, Kundalini activation, energy tracking, conscious touch and consent skills. The list above are just a few of the practices we use to dive deep into the inner realms. 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.

A note on Masculine & Feminine

Please don’t perceive that our use of the terms masculine and feminine is an indicator that ISTA operates from place of duality and gender separation. We do not, far from it we realise that we are all masculine and feminine regardless of our physical form. We use this terminology as it is an effective model for understanding the different energies or qualities that each if us is made up of. They do not translate to men and women or male and female.

Unique to ISTA

Three skilled Temple Arts Faculty all international teachers in their own right will share, inspire, guide and support you to bring light to the shadows where our 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, neurological reprogramming, Orgasmic Yoga, learning to work with shamanic energy, owning one’s desires and the ability to manifest, accessing and speaking from your contra-sexual self (i.e gender opposite), conscious communication, Transformational Shamanic Breathwork, ancient temple arts rituals of healing/initiation and a powerful sexual clearing and activation processes. The ISTA facilitators are looking forward to meeting you in Love, Power, and Freedom.

Supportive Group Process

This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on safety, trust, unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this event, you will feel more in touch with your body, more aliveness and presence, more aware of your patterns and have some skills as to how to change them, more awareness of your emotions and how to hold them, lighter and perhaps more relaxed. You will be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.

A Note - Lead Faculty Elaine Young

"My personal journey is the reason I facilitate these trainings, for me they are by far the most effective weeklong personal transformational experience I have encountered. I want to share the possibility of living from a place of authenticity, sovereignty, soul purpose, freedom, love and power with as many people as I can. ‘ All our journeys are different … your life may not in any way resemble mine, that’s reality. We are all a unique product of our souls, family, genetics and environment but many of us are hurting, stuck, disconnected, in denial, lack satisfaction with life, feeling lost, trapped, confused or somehow knowing we are not fully honoring our true deeper being that wants to live fully with authenticity, presence and passion.’

<<<Who takes this training?>>>

Some people take this training for their own personal evolution, to gain a deeper self-connection and to enrich their relationships and empower their lives. Others are interested in exploring how it will add to their own professional life, whatever that may be, and some are interested in the professions of Sacred Sexual Practitioner or Sexuality Educator.

Attendees include those from the various spiritual paths and the sexual paths of celibacy, monogamy, and polyamory.

Couples, individuals and relationship groups of any formation are welcome, as are individuals of any sexual orientation and gender identity. The greater mix of prior experiences the richer the training! If it is your truth, it is possible to complete the entire training/experience without touching another person.

I ask you this question: Are you ready to jump off the edge?

We are so often at the precipice of something we have wanted to do, embody or achieve....and we remain at the proverbial cafe, sipping tea, peering over the edge looking at the unknown water below, searching with our mind for the answers. Of course, the mind has no real answers. And so we are afraid. We may let our feet leave the ground, but more often than not we return to our comfort zone...because we are too afraid to feel the pain...really feel it all the way...and enter the gateway of new possibilities. What if you could jump when your being, your heart, your spirit knew it was time to change? In this training you will come to a point where you can choose, completely and resolutely, without reservation, to fling yourself off the rock.....and transform your life. What's your edge? Are you ready to jump? What's getting in your way? To find out….come and do this training. It will take you to your edge, expand you and change your life forever.

<<<Any pre-requisites?>>>

No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend this retreat. Those with previous experience are warmly welcomed, as they add to the power of the field.

<<<What will I have to do?>>>

You are always at choice and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. Nudity and intimate touch are optional parts of this training. The cornerstone of this work is about consent, developing healthy boundaries and communication.

Goa has been the mythical, magical Bohemia since the hippy flower children landed on the shores of Goa is the late 1960s. Our location for the training is close to Arambol beach, in the far north of Goa. In essence, Arambol is still a small village with it's own charm. Since the 60s, Arambol has evolved into a welcoming community of locals, tourists and long-term visitors, where peace and love prevail. It attracts creators in different forms - artists, musicians, dancers, movers, thinkers, bodyworkers, painters co-creating vibrantly to support the emergence of a more evolved paradigm of consciousness.

You can fly into any of the the major metro cities of India (for example - Mumbai or Delhi), and then fly onwards to Goa. Alternatively, you can fly direct to Goa (Dabolim airport) with charter flights companies from different parts of Europe and the Middle East during the tourist season in Goa (Nov - March). For example, Monarch Airlines offers direct flights from London Gatwick and Manchester, and Thomsonfly offers direct flights from East Midlands, Gatwick and Manchester from November to March. Get a pre-paid taxi from the airport to North Goa (Arambol).

Binoy Milton Dsouza (Apprentice Facilitator)

Binoy is an international transformational facilitator and tantric guide. He (co-) creates group fields exploring the mystery of love all over the planet.

Growing up in both urban and rural India, he was fascinated by the places of synergy and separation between the mystical and the logical. He moved to Europe in his early 20s to experience wisdom traditions from other parts of the world, seeking a deeper syncretic meaning to life. Alongside, he continued his solo tantric studies, while exploring embodied practices such as Argentinian Tango, Yoga, & Trans-Himalayan Shamanism.

He also loves exploring paradoxes and the dance beyond dualities: east & west, mind & animal; masculine & feminine; rational & mystical, spirit & matter; personality & soul. He is lovingly committed to exploring the depths and the heights of the journey of being human.

Binoy supports human beings in the process of making their consciousness malleable, to feel the sacredness of their animal-selves, and from a place of deeper alignment in their beings to remember their deepest longing. He is the creator of Love Movement Evolution, a global cultural movement integrating consciousness, sexuality, love, & stillness.
