ISTA is part of a global transformational shift that is bringing more consciousness to the ways we relate, create and communicate. ISTA programs recognize spirituality and sexuality as two expressions of life force. In this union, the power of love is grounded and nourished. It is a non-profit educational organization since 2007. What started as gatherings of teachers and practitioners quickly evolved into a collaboration of empowered individuals representing every continent, becoming a vehicle that connects experts from around the globe and presently operates in over 30 countries.
As a gathering of friends we share a common passion to live in a harmonious, alive planet, where human beings, nature and all sentient kingdoms are respected. We envision a world where humans have a peaceful, delightful, shameless, fearless and loving relationship with their own bodies, sexuality, emotions, hearts, minds, and spirit.
ISTA is a modern synthesis of...
~ spiritual transmissions
~ Mystery School where the Temple Arts are revived
~ innovative business and creative community, sharing resources as a global network
We implement our vision by co-creating a vibrant and loving culture, while sharing and educating others through conferences, trainings and events around the globe.
Most organizations have a mission statement, a business plan with clear goals, budgets and strategies to achieve them. ISTA is an organism, and those concepts do not apply.
ISTA is a Hearth-ship where the fire of spirit has been lit. This can be uncomfortable for people who are used to living in the prevailing earth culture. They want to know Why we are doing it? What we are doing? Who makes the decisions? How do we measure results? How much will they get paid? Our answer to this is often simply - we do not know!!
