What is ISTA?

Are you fully available emotionally, physically, spiritually and sexually?

Are you completely without fear, guilt or shame?

These feelings can be strong inhibitors to your essential life force. The subliminal and overt messages you received culturally and in childhood around your sexuality and spirituality, around what is sacred can affect your ability to be intimate. Truly intimate.

Do you experience awkwardness in sexual situations? And wonder how you can truly relax into your pleasure?

This is a powerful break-through opportunity to awaken core aliveness and clear deepest conditioning about sexuality.

Do you long to be fully met?

But do you choose incompatible partners again and again? Or have you opted out of the relationship game altogether?

Perhaps you would simply like more profound intimacy within an existing relationship?

Do you have the courage to face the unknown?

This powerful 8-day training is being held on a beautiful retreat center 2 hours northwest of Tokyo, on a picturesque mountain and river!

Would you like to access more of your personal power?

You are invited to unfold your potential with international teachers Ohad Pele Ezrahi, Dawn Cherie, and Avishag Maya Zloof for this profound initiation.

The People

Thousands of people have attended the worldwide ISTA trainings on 5 continents over the past 11 years and have uncovered their core wounding and reactive patterns, and learned how to transform them into conscious ways of being that are empowering, loving, and feel fully alive.

The ISTA Experience

This training is aimed at people who are dedicated to evolving personal and planetary consciousness. Together as a group and as humanity as a whole, we play our part in co-creating heaven on earth.

Central to this intention is full presence, personal & transpersonal awareness, personal empowerment, emotional intelligence, sexual health & wholeness, and a lifestyle which honors the interconnectedness of all things.

The journey of embracing one’s shadow is one of the key cornerstones & methods of personal transformation, liberation & expanded potential that will be explored in this training.

No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary. Individuals and couples with previous experience are welcomed. The greater mix of prior experiences, the richer the training!

This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space. ISTA is a mystery school and approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process.
